Timon-Doyle's Voyage of Discovery

Updated October 20, 2004

About Our Family Research

This is a voyage of discovery for and on behalf of our wonderful sons Edward and Kenneth into their heritage and lineage. Research has only just begun and will take us to who knows where?

Apparently it all started in the mid 16oo's when two Greek merchants called Timon came to Ireland. They were brothers. One went to the East coast and the other to the West coast of Ireland. Some time after the Battle of Kinsale the brother in the East became a Protestant to save his land and the his brother in the West became a 'rebel'.

Their Great Great Grandfather John Timon b.1834 in Roscommon was Captain of a trading ship. He drowned off the coast of Dublin in c.1910. His son Edward b.1860 (great-grandfather) moved from Roscommon to Clontarf, Dublin and joined the Police Force.


The Doyle side (mother)of the family originates from Baltinglass, Co. Wicklow where Michael Doyle and Bridget Byrne married and settled. Michael an ex-US Navy Captain originated from Titusville, Pennsyvania, where his father had emigrated to during the famine.
