Dr. Jerry Crowley, Apothecary, North St., Skibbereen possibly originally from Ballyourane, Caheragh, West Cork, Famine Relief, Phoenix Club Swore O’Donovan Rossa in As Member, Extended Family Evans, Haddens
In the early 19th century the demarcation between a doctor and apothecary (chemist) was not clear cut. There are many references to Doctors who in fact were apothecaries.
Recent DNA evidence may suggest two separate lines of Protestant ancestors. Firstly the West Cork Landlord families, Cox, Evans, Jervois, Hull, Robinson and secondly the Armagh weaver families who settled in the triangle Clonakilty/Skibbereen/Dunmanway, Johnson, Williamson, Young among others.,
He may also be of the same extended family as father Crowley from Caheragh who was jailed in the late 1880s during the Land War during a controversial criminal defamation action initiated by the Protestant Minister in Goleen. Fr. Crowley later went to the USA and became a controversial Catholic bible hall preacher.
