All of this information is just a shot in the dark. I have nothing more to go on
other than the fact that my family (Byrne) came from the Fitzwilliam Estate in
Co Wicklow in 1847. If indeed your family had an estate there is no chance of a
connection to this bunch but here goes.
There were Cullens and Fitzpatricks living near my Byrne family in Ireland and
where they settled in Canada. They are all fairly common names - Byrne is the
most common surname in Wicklow. Our bunch settled in Ontario and some of the
children moved to Ogdensburg NY area with their families in the late 1800s, to
work on the lake boats. One of the Byrne grand-daughters married a Matthew
Cullen circa 1905. My great grandmother was a Fitzpatrick but her family was
from Co Cavan I believe.
You could check Griffiths Valuation which is online. I have some FW estate
papers from one or two townlands for 1860 and earlier. They do not provide wives
or childrens names, just numbers of sons and daughters but it gives the
occupation of the father. If he was something other than a farmer it could be a
lead. I could send them to you offline if you like. It's from a very very small
area and if they happened to be from there it would be quite a coincidence.
However, that's how I found my bunch.
If they lived near the border of Co Carlow you might find some baptism records
in the Parish records of Clonegal which are online. My family lived in Wicklow
but went to church in Clonegal, Co Carlow just a few miles from their home
As an aside I now have relatives living in Baldwin, Maryland, near Baltimore.
They are a Byrne/Burns connection but have a different family name now. Our
extended family uses every variation of the spelling of the original Byrne.

In Search Of.......
Fitzpatrick, Cullen, and Burns families...
James Fitzpatrick (my great-great-grandmother), born Nov 1846 in County Wicklow,
Ireland, and died Mar 1930 in Washington, D.C. He immigrated to America in 1857
(per U.S. Census records). He was married to Katherine Cullen about 1879 in
Washington, D.C.. They were Catholic, but no marriage/church record has been
found. Per family, they attended St. Aloysius and later St. James Catholic
Churches. Living children were Mary A., William Aloysius, Elizabeth Agnes (my
great-grandmother), and James Joseph. Three to five additional children did not
survive beyond birth, have birth records for three, but 1900 Census indicates
nine total children.
