The 19th Century Durrus Baptismal Register was destroyed at the Four Courts in Dublin. This partial reconstruction is based on Church of Ireland Parish Record Searches (National Archives). Images of these archives, which include unsuccessful searches, are available on

Susan, wife of Peter Dukelow, and Mary, wife of Paul Shannon, were daughters of Samuel Kingston of Rearahinagh, Drimoleague, and details of their families can be found here. Searches in the Register for the baptisms of Richard (1849-1850), son of Peter and Susan Dukelow, and Susan (June 1850) and John (1852), children of Paul and Mary Shannon, proved unsuccessful.
