PALATINE FAMILIES IN LIMERICK COUNTY IRELAND, JULY 1934

These families were listed from the memory of Mr. Julius Sheppard of Ballingarrane, a remarkable keen-witted descendant of Palatine ancestry. Palatines also lived in Ballyorgan and Kilfinnane but their names were not mentioned. They are probably included in the "other Palatine Families" listed below, taken from William Crook, The Palatines in Ireland, (London, 1866), 241. Some of the these names appear to be French or English in origin. They may be attributed to mixed marriage or perhaps a change of name by Palatine descendants.
