Research Q&A

Fiona FitzsimonsThis newsletter Fiona Fitzsimons, Research Director at Eneclann answers Brian Hepenstall’s question :

I am a New Zealander living in New Zealand.  My grandfather on my father’s side was born in Ireland…

The question I want to put to you is this; My family name is Hepenstall.  That name would appear to have originated in England in the Yorkshire area.  In Ireland, the name was largely contained around Co. Wicklow, Wexford and Dublin.  I have been told that the name was spelt Hepenstall/Hepenstal if it was a Protestant family and Hempenstall if the family was Catholic.  What I am interested in knowing is when, or what would have been the likely reason for the migration of the name from England.

Find out the answer to Brian’s question

Featured Project: The Belvedere Book

Each newsletter we showcase some of the work our team has been involved in.

This edition, we take a look at the Belvedere Book project, commissioned by the Belvedere College Board.  The Board asked Eneclann to help them manage a project to create a manuscript book that would record all those Jesuits connected with the College from its inception in the 1840s, down to the present day.   Find out more about the Belvedere Book.


County Focus: Wicklow

Co. WicklowThis month our focus is on Co. Wicklow, which is located to the east of Ireland, in the Province of Leinster.

Take a look at our Co. Wicklow page for information on all our publications relating to this county.



Best wishes,
The Eneclann Team
