HomepageThe Cullens of Manorhamilton
Co. Leitrim, Ireland
David Evans, Robert Cullen, Jim & Pam Bruen, and many others


This is a special section of the Cullen Genealogy Homepage dealing with the descendants of the Cullens of Manorhamilton, a prominent family in Co Leitrim, Ireland from the mid-17'th to the mid-19'th centuries. The family was founded by one Captain John Cullen who came to Ireland with Cromwell in 1648. According to the family history, John Cullen was one of the family that had been evicted from Co Wexford and, for a time, lived in Scotland. This is likely where the connection to the Cullens of Nottinghamshire, England is to be found. Richard Cullen, who founded the "Rude Forefathers" line of Cullens and who died in Upton, Nottinghamshsire in 1579, had children with names that are all but exclusive to Scotland. The exact connection between the two brances of the Cullen family is the subject of ongoing research. One of the researchers, David Evans, a meteorologist for the Australian government and a descendant of Cullen relatives in Co Leitrim, has been tireless in his search for information on his ancestors in Ireland. He has gone so far as to personally visit the area and root out more information on his own and he has been rewarded with a few discoveries and much information concerning his ancestors. David was kind enough to make the information available to the rest of us in this area of the site.

Though David has done extensive research on the Cullen families in Co Leitrim, he has thus far been unable to connect his own ancestors into the known family tree. His specific branch is as follows:

William Cullen b: Abt 1770 d: Unknown
+Mary Anne b: Abt 1775 m: Abt 1807 d: Unknown

David has asked that his name be given along with the sources of the material that he has forwarded; he will be happy to do lookups. Click here to e-mail David Evans. The sources are: "The Sligo-Leitrim World of Kate Cullen", Burke's Irish Families (1912), Thrift Abstract #3405, and the Tree of Henry Cullen (unpubl, source unknown).

What I have done for David's gedcom is to simply load the text output from Family Tree Maker software and dump it onto this page. Crude? Yes. Effective? Even more so. I plan for the information to see a few updates and this is the fastest and easiest method to present it in a timely manner. On this page I will keep the current family tree. The posting page has been moved to the new Queries Pages. To make a post, just e-mail it to me.

This family tree has been updated with the information received from Robert Cullen in Johannesburg, South Africa. The original document was written in about 1860 by David Cullen, one of the Cullens of the Co Leitrim family. Robert Cullen, a descendant of the same family, has updated David Cullen's work. The full text of the Cullen Family Pedigree is now available in the Related Irish Families pages. You may follow the links from there or use your back button to return to this page. I have changed the format of this page's family tree to HTML due to printing problems. It's a little harder to read but the information is all there.
