I Need Your Help – Please add your name or a comment to the Killey Genealogy log here…

I would really like to hear from all the Killey’s out there!
If you wish, please add a comment or two to this page so all us Killey’s can keep up to date as to where we are in the world and to find out a little bit about our ancestry.
Here is a link to the old Genealogy Log which had to be disabled due to spammers (Feb 2017).
Thank you.

  1. I just left inaccurate information
    The Killey brothers parents were not Michael & Margaret Murphy. These are the names of grandparents.
    The parents were Timothy Murphy and Ellen Ryan (maiden name). We assume now that Ellen Ryan may have been married to a Killey before she married Timothy Murphy. She was somewhat older then Timothy.
    Ellen Ryan B:1806 to 1810 range of years of birth.
    She brought Patrick & Michael Killey along with her new younger husband and at least two additional sons from this union to Iowa USA

  2. I just found out some of my Murphy relatives from Castleconnell Limerick area might actually be sons from a previous marriage, and their last name was Killey. Michael Killey B:1835 & Patrick Killey B: 1834
    Their mother’s name was Margaret, but we do not have her maiden name. She married a Michael Murphy and they lived around O’Briensbridge and some of their grandchildren were baptisted at St Joseph’s Church in Castleconnell. The Killey brothers immigrated with Timothy & Margaret Murphy to Iowa, USA in about 1848 to 1852. Timothy & Margaret Murphy had other children born in the area they callled Castle Hills. Those other children are Timothy & John R Murphy born about 1843 & 1845 respectively.

  3. Hello,

    I’m actually Manx too, and I take after the Manx people in my family,
    the Collisters, or Callisters. I am trying to get in touch with a
    Killey who lived in the North of England, perhaps somewhere near
    Liverpool, and who was interested in geneology but I don’t remember
    his first name! I think it may have been John possibly but I just do
    not remember. Know he was married to a German lady and had two sons,
    one named Robert. If you have any idea of how I could get in touch
    with him it would be much appreciated! Best regards, Seana

  5. I am a Killey living in Northland NZ, daughter of the late Harold Frederick Killey.
    There were no sons born to his family of brothers, so that brought the Killey name to a halt.
    Would love to hear from descendents as I will be visiting England and the Isle Of Man in the very near future.

  7. Rebecca Killey

    Hi everyone! I am just starting to compose my family tree and came across this whilst searching the origins of the Killey surname! I hope I can help in someway and visa versa!

  8. Hello all, I came across this site while researching origins of the Killey name. Very interesting information. Thanks!

  9. Hi Peter. Do you remember when we first exchanged emails in 2007 – my asking if you and I were related? So proud to see I was the third to sign on to your marvellous website. I want to thank you for establishing this. It has resulted in my being contacted by two people, one I now consider a friend and hope to meet one day and the other a cousin I would never have known about. Through this I have discovered things about my Father amd his family that would have been lost forever. This has been a gift.
