Lovelocks from Irish Records

Irish records are not particularly well documented in on-line sources, and their nature is often fragmentary. The data below is very probably only a fraction of the records covering Lovelock life events in Ireland, and much of what is here probably has a military connection at some point.

Some Irish data may be available on subscription websites, such as Ancestry, Findmypast, and The Genealogist, and their collections are also added to from time to time.

As well as the life events transcribed below, there are five 'Descendant Fragments' which have been assembled from data here and on other pages in this website. There are Lovelocks born in Ireland recorded in each US Census from 1850 onwards.

For some of the entries below links to the relevant entry in the appropriate family tree on the Webtrees website are provided.
