1763. Magazine of Magazines [Limerick] April 1763  “At Corke, Daniel O’Donovan (The O’Donovan) of Banlahan (Myross, Skibbereen) to Miss Jane Beecher”

He was in his 60s a widower, she either 15 or 16.

It is a curiosity that whole some branches of the O’Donovans converted to the Church of Ireland most of those seem to retain an extraordinary interest in historical, genealogical matters.  This is evidenced by membership of learned societies, retaining ancient manuscripts and correspondence with antiquarians such as Dr. John O’Donovan.   In the case of one family member  who became in the 19th century a prominent Methodist Minister in Dublin and England he always called his houses after townlands in his homeplace.
