Marthene Williamson of Nova Scotia has put a significant amount of time researching families many of whom come from the Rossmore/Brahalish area of Durrus. More like Beamishes come from Mizen. It is interesting that through the Canadian and other records you can in effect get births from 18th century Ireland.
Another feature of the Canadian census records is language. Many of the Cork Protestant families put Irish into the box for language. It is not possible to say if it was Irish or the variation of English spoken in Ireland. Accounts of descendant speak of a soft brogue and language spattered with phrases and words from Irish. Even when they were speaking English they were almost speaking irish with english words using a different syntax than that used in England.

Re the Bandon Bernards, where George Bennett got his early history of the family from, heck knows as they didn’t come from the North of England – They came from Essex. They did have a coat of arms as it ties in with the Essex family. I think that the Frekes were more aristocratic than the Bernards and I couldn’t prove the supposed 1600s marriages between the Frekes and the Bernards (the 1700s onwards are fine) – the Frekes family history is quite well documented as far back as the early 1600s. The Judge amassed a fortune and bought up all that he could and from then on they were landed gentry deriving their income from leasing out their estates. They also entered into very strategic marriages so were intent on ennobling themselves…

Allman’s Distillery Bandon, Co. Cork, from 1825-1929, Genealogy and Cotton enterprise..
The Allman family were an enterprising one having among other businesses cotton mill in the late 18th century.
In it heyday was one of the principal distilleries in Ireland employing hundreds and taking a large amount of grain grown locally, it had its own railway sidings connected to the Cork and Bandon railway.
