Note: most of the records and databases on this website are for Anglo-Irish, Church of Ireland (Protestant) residents of Cork between the years 1650 - 1850.
There are some records of Roman Catholic families but in most cases, it is the wealthier merchants and professionals of the city (of which there was quite a large number).
