Knockanure Moyvane

Connor of Moyvane snippet

 

Born in Haverfordwest in June 1952, the eldest of 3 boys and 2 girls (In 2008, Bernard in Accrington, Mary in Portadown, Patrick, a Doctor in Dublin and Annette in Derry).

Mother, Jocelyn Marie (Nee Davies-Peck), born in Withington, Manchester in November 1924 and, following the separation of her parents, reared in St. Martha's Convent, Rottingdean, Sussex with her brother Michael. Elder brother Tony, a Second World War Hero in the SAS behind enemy lines in France, by only one year, brought up by Bernardo's in one of their homes at Harpenden. Their father, Frank Peck did try to adopt them but was turned down as they were Catholic and Frank, a First World War Hero in the trenches, was a Protestant. Sadly, she died on January 31st 1989 and is buried in Sessiaghoniell, Ballybofey, Co. Donegal. Bernard has the more complete history and did nearly all the research. Suffice it to say, Tony's son and daughter, cousins Tony and Dawn live in Glynneath and Weymouth, respectively, Michael, despite marrying again, after being widowed early, was without issue and his second wife Margaret, living in Crawley, survives him, that all this history of Mum only came to light in the past few years, we all being ignorant of it until then as nobody talked about it.

Father, Dr. Cornelius Anthony O'Connor, born on 13th June 1923 at Gortdromasillihy in Moyvane (then Newtownsandes), Co. Kerry (seeNewtownsandes on line and Jer Kennelly's photo album) and reared on Hoeyfield Farm, Delgany, Co. Wicklow, with his 3 brothers and 3 sisters (in 2008, Maura, Eileen and Sean still alive). In 1952 he was a Medical G.P. with a practice in Pembroke Dock and although he left in 1963 the family link continues as a cousin, Noleen Evans (nee Finucane) is married to a current practice member, Dr. Andrew Evans. Following a severe brain illness (Herpes Simplex Encephalitis) in 1982 Dad retired and resided with Mum in the family home at Sessiaghoniell, Ballybofey, County Donegal. However, with Mum dying in 1989, not long after Lockerbie, Mary moved in to look after him until he went to live with Annette Brian and their six children in Derry. Regrettably, he died on January 17th 2004, aged 80 years and is buried with Mum. An O'Connor family tree and more comprehensive history at Cousin Brian Sheehan's website son of Dad's eldest sister Maighread and Pat Sheehan. Brian and his twin brother Kieran did all the research.
