Ignatious Bamberton McCooley

Postby dave-martin » Tue May 18, 2010 12:44 am

Please excuse me if I seem a little bit forward here
but now that Im a member of this amazingly varied and entertaining site -I was just wondering -if I asked for help in tracing my great -great-grandfather Ignatious Bamberton McCooley-
its been said in the family that he was a big important person (dont know what that means ) on a Navy frigate that sailed from the county of Cork -Halbowline (I think)
and spent most of his life sailing ibetween the Carribean and America
perhaps the expert jordo may be of help to me here -
I promised the family that I would do my best to find out
sorry I forgot to mention that he is thought to have been born in one of the boros' of Meath -
thank you

Hi Dave,
All I can do is try but as I have said a thousand times before I fall into information more so than research it. Have you any information that might narrow the search such as ships he might have sailed on etc.
By the way are you resident here?

Does any member of your family have his discharge book or any of his seaman's books? Most of the Merchant and Royal Marines are listed on the Maritime website.

Hello farmboy
sorry of course my country is ~*&^{!$%%^&******Im sure you have heard it many times in sea shandys and balleds

you replied to my attempts at the old ancestoral tongue -im pleased -that you understood my feeble attemps

to Sinead -
Im sorry no there are no documents available anymore -it appears during a massive storm in my my country
~*&^{!$%^&****** around the turn of the 1900s all goods of any value whatsoever were traded for food and shelter to the missionaries --
However its said that his last sailings were aboard an Imperial Line Steamship

dave-martin
as farmboy has said
cede milly fafter to ya and may the road rise up to meet ya!

Hi Dave,
Please excuse Johndle and grammer they are from the Noggin :roll:

Some of your post is causing difficulty as our server or what ever it's called is not recognising the text and for example the name of your country is coming up as symbols.

The books Sinéad mentioned would not have any monetry value and may be still in a family members possession. If so, it would greatly help as they would give the exact spelling of the name McCooley as nothing is showing on any of the Sites that deal with maritime matters.

Can you give a guide to when your ancestor was alive?!
Do you have any proven information? e.g. when he was born, died, married etc.
This would help narrow the search

many thankyous for bringing a smile to my heavy heart
I have just been informed this very day of the true story of my ancestor

-it appears there were a lot of skeleton bones in the extended family boards -
my great-great grandfather was in fact not born in the boro of Meath---it has now been revealed to me this very day that he did indeed sail the world but not as an important officer on ships -he was wait for it --only on board a ship once and that was below decks with 450 other unfortunates who came from the coast of Africa on a one way journey --

so thank you for your help and funniness I got a lot of smiles here

ps I think the ship's name was wildfire or redfire

sadly dear Strum it looks as though he was indeed.
I doubt very much that he was the head chef or a downstairs waiter -
but as your people are well aware after loosing the battle of crough hill
life is a banana -very seldom runs in a straight line-
my people have a very old saying-"ye gudii guddii tubuuttts"
loosely translated means -"he with two boots is blessed to have two feet to put into them"

ceilhe meely falltche to each and everyone of you
especially all the -ites in dunlaoghaire

That is heart-breaking news Dave Martin but you have obviously risen above all that now.

With your permission I will use your countrys saying as my signature on one of the War sites I am involved with as it is very poignant and would be appropiate to such a Site.

Now that you have discovered that you have no Irish connections I hope that you will keep in contact with us as you have touched the hearts of many of us here and you have certainly re-kindled my love for my native tongue.
