The Tinneny Family History Site


Development of this site is a joint endeavor of Richard J. "Rich" Tinneny of Columbia, South Carolina, USA and Lucy (Murray) Sherwood, who lives in England. Rich is the great-grandson of Patrick "Yankee Pat" Tinneny of Goladuff, Newtownbutler, County Fermanagh, Northern Ireland and Lucy is the granddaughter of Mary Tinneny also of Goladuff.

Content and Construction:    Rich provided most of the researched content and Lucy had the complex job of building it into this web site.

Purpose:   This site was developed to share family history, photographs and  genealogical information with, for and about Tinnenys and Tinneny descendants worldwide on an ongoing basis.  It is hoped that this effort will further bring together members of our family around the world in the joy of reunion best described by the author B. J. Hoff  in her description of the Irish and their reunions.

“Only a people so often displaced,
So frequently exiled,
Could know the rare wonder,
The incomparable joy,
Of coming together with loved ones,
Once counted as lost.”

B.J. Hoff

Contributions: Submission of additional information, photos, comments and corrections of site content are encouraged and  welcome.  Please send them to Rich at  Photographs should be in .jpg format and be accompanied with captions.
