 Report on Ruddock Family Search

The client had provided a huge amount of information including a generational pedigree that covered the mid 17th Century to the present.  Given the huge amount of information, we agreed on the following search strategy, in consultation with the client, to try and focus our research efforts on tracing the history of the Ruddock family in Ireland in the 18th Century.

First of all to focus in on George Ruddock (1708-88), the Sovereign of Kinsale, his sons, grandson Andrew, and great-grand-children who emigrated to Canada.

1. Genealogical abstracts: In preparing the initial assessment we found reference to a Crossle Genealogical Abstract on the Ruddock family held in the National Archives of Ireland (NAI Crossle 2/434/41).

2.   Hayes Ms sources, and the index to the Genealogical Office (G.O.) in the National Library of Ireland (N.L.I.) for any Ruddock papers or pedigrees.

3.   Betham’s Abstracts wills and pedigrees held in the G. O.

4.   Corporation of Kinsale records. We wanted to focus on tracing records of George Ruddock who served as Sovereign, but also of Brinn Ruddock in the second half of the 18th century up to the early 19th Century; and his son Andrew, both of whom were shipwrights and therefore are likely to have been involved in trading (importing/exporting).  Also to look at Richard  Caulfield’s The Council Book of the Corporation of Kinsale, 1652-1800 specifically looking for all information on George Ruddock as Sovereign of Kinsale, but also any other information on the Ruddocks in that town.

5.  Search Hayes Manuscript Sources for all other extant Corporation or Port Books for Kinsale, between the early 18th Century and the mid 19th Century.

6.  Examine the Church of Ireland records for Kinsale which start in 1684. Search for the baptism of George Ruddock ca. 1708 and his varous siblings between ca. 1707 and 1723. If you find this, can you jump ahead a generation, and search for marriage of George Ruddock to Hester Brinn in 1737, and the baptism of the two sons of George Ruddock & Hester Brinn, Thomas & Brinn.   Search for the Remarriage of George Ruddock to Jane Winter in 1751, and the baptism of their son George.   Search for the burial records for Hester Ruddock in or before 1751, for George Ruddock in 1788.

Synopsis of findings.

Initially our research findings were very poor.  In the first sources examined, The Crossle abstracts held in the National Archives, the Genealogical Office records held in the National Library, and Betham’s Wills and Pedigrees (Genealogical Office), there was very little material relevant to the specific line of the Ruddock family that you are interested in.  However, in the Genealogical Office records, we identified a marriage not previously know about, that is the marriage of Parnell, daughter of John Brown, who prior to 1709 married —- Ruddock (Volume 14).  The fact that the name “Parnell” re-occurs as a girl’s Christian name in your line, Parnel bap. 1707, daughter of Thomas Ruddock of Innishannon, indicates that possibly Thomas’s wife or his mother may have been this Parnel Brown daughter of John Brown.

We had greater success when we examined the records relating to the town and corporation of Kinsale.  There  were two main sources, the first a published book, the Council Book for the Corporation of Kinsale 1652-1800; the second source, the Calendar of Kinsale Documents, is a series of unpublished calendars of documents covering the 17th to 19th Centuries, held in the Trinity College Library.  The information contained in these sources related to the Ruddocks involvement in the commercial life of the town.  For example in the Council Book of the Corporation of Kinsale, there was a record dated Michaelmas 1674, when Joseph Ruddock was sworn a Freeman, in other words, he was granted the right to conduct trade and/or business within the borough town.  In 1678, we find Andrew Ruddock appointed a Commissioner of the Peace for the reign of Charles II.  We found a reference of George Ruddock being sworn a Freeman and burgess of Kinsale in 1741, and a record of his election as Sovereign in 1753, 1754, 1770 and 1773.  In the Calendar of Kinsale Documents, we found a reference to George Ruddock’s serving on the Grand Jury of Kinsale between 1743 and 1751.  We also found a reference to his acting as an overseer, for the construction of 4 ‘public necessary houses’ or toilets in Kinsale Harbour.

We found very little relevant to the Ruddock family in the Kinsale C. of I. registers.  However when we turned to the Inishannon C. of I. registers, we found extensive records of baptisms, marriages and burials of the family from 1693 when the registers begin.  Most of this information you already have in some form, although we corrected most of your dates which appear to be a year out.

We also managed to extend research beyond what was originally agreed to, and found good details of the Ruddock family which may allow us to extend research.  In particular, we found two volumes of Marriage License Bonds between the 17th Century and the mid 19th Century, recorded by the Consistorial Court of the Diocese of Cork & Ross.  We identified a number of Ruddock marriages, and we could now use this information, to focus research and try and find marriage settlements in the years of marriage.   We probably won’t find a marriage settlement for each marriage, but where they have been registered in the Registry of Deeds, a marriage deed would contain extensive information about family assets and familial relationships.

Finally, under miscellanea, we grouped all incidental references to the Ruddock family, including information on Captain Andrew Ruddock who first arrived in Ireland as a Cromwellian soldier during the Confederate Wars 1641-52.  We included in this section some information taken from the Calendar of State Papers, Ireland, series.  And, a reference in the published Egmont Diary, records a statement by Sir John Percival in 1684, in which he refers to Andrew Ruddock as his cousin.

The research is set out in detail, below.


National Archives:

Crossle Genealogical abstract:

We began the search by calling up the items of the Crossle Genealogical Abstract.  This comprised an abstract of a 1753 deed between Francis Gray of the City of Cork merchant, Joseph Gray of the same, merchant, and James Ruddock the younger of Ballincurr, King’s county Esq and Elizabeth his daughter and a number of other assignees, it related to the marriage of Francis Gray and Elizabeth Ruddock.  As this marriage settlement concerned a Ruddock family of King’s county (Offaly), it wasn’t directly concerned with the main Ruddock line, based in Kinsale.

There was also a listing of deeds relating to various Ruddocks in the Lessor index of the Registry of Deeds including a George Ruddock (Book 181, page no. 322, deed no. 123314).

The last item related to the prerogative will of William Ruddock of the Right Hon. Lord Tyrawly’s Regt. Of Foot, signed 6th January 1726 and granted 4th October 1733, it mentioned his interest in lands of ‘Stockhold’[?], Co. Dublin and referred to his wife Jane Ruddock who was also his executrix.  There was no other reference to any other Ruddocks.

The second record was of the prerogative will of Anne Reddich of Clonmel, county Tipperary, wife of James Reddich, granted on 23rd February 1739.

[see attached photocopies].

Unfortunately, nothing of any great relevance to your Ruddock ancestors was contained in these abstracts.

Ruddock Ms. 223-54 Betham Will Abstracts 1/264, 7/159, 12/159, 14/48, 23/67, 24/219

We searched the relevant volumes of Betham’s Will Abstracts for all Ruddock references, we did not find any specific family tree relating to the Ruddock family we did find the following references, some of which were very vague in detail:

Volume 1.  Re: Croker family specifically Edward Croker of Rawleighstown in county Limerick will dated 10 November 1732, died 21 November 1752 at note at bottom of page ‘Andrew Ruddock nephew to E. C.’.

This is probably Andrew Ruddock Esq. of Wallstown, hence related to, but not directly of the line that you’re interested in.

Volume 7.  Re: John Gray of Cork, merchant, his son Francis Gray (will dated 14 May 1795, proved 16 July 1799) married Elizabeth Ruddock

This appears to be the same marriage settlement of the daughter of James Ruddock of Ballincur King’s county, hence not relevant to the line that you’re interested in.

Volume 12.  Re: Drought family, very vague note read ‘– wife of James Ruddock of Lorho’

John Drought of Ballyboy will dated 16 April 1747 proved 21 March 1748, possibly John’s wife who married James Ruddock?

Volume 14.  Re: Brown family, John Brown pre-1709, the children of John Brown, Mary, Hannah, Martha, Parnell wife of – Ruddock

This would tend to indicate a marriage not previously identified between a Parnel Brown daughter of John Brown and one of the Ruddocks, prior to 1709.  The fact that the name re-occurs as a Christian name in your line, Parnel bap. 1707, daughter of Thomas Ruddock of Innishannon, indicates that possibly Thomas’s wife or his mother may have been this Parnel Brown daughter of John Brown.

Volume 23.   Re: Sheppard family of King’s county, Robert Sheppard of Shinrone will dated 15 January 1791, ‘nieces Hester Sheppard wife of — Ruddock’

[see also Crossle Genealogical Abstract]

Betham’s Prerogative Will Abstracts:

We searched the volumes of Betham’s Prerogative Will Abstracts from 1581 to 1799 for any Ruddock entries but found only the reference already noted and described in greater detail in the Crossle abstract relating to William Ruddock who died in ca. 1733.

The Council Book of the Corporation of Kinsale, 1652-1800, ed. Richard Caulfield’s

We now turned to look at all surviving records for the Corporation of Kinsale, for a record of George Ruddock who served as Sovereign of the town, but also for mention of Brinn Ruddock in the second half of the 18th Century.

Caulfield’s Council Book of the Corporation of Kinsale, is a large volume and unfortunately has not been indexed so we had to speed-read the book for references to the Ruddock family.  We found a number of items relating to the family and we have tried to arrange for the most part in chronological order:

1674 – 29th September

Mr. Joseph Ruddock, upon account of the Soveraign [Josias Percivall/Persivall] was sworn free, gratis.

1678 – June 13th

Andrew Ruddock Justice or Commissioner of the Peace for the reign of Charles II

1688 – 14th December

Ordered that £13 10s. 3d. Be levied (by distress if occasion be) on the town and liberties, pursuant to a warrant grounded on a presentment from last assizes, for several works done to the County Gaole, for bread….. [list of those levied] for the liberties, Mr. George Ruddock, Mr. Armiger Marsh, and Mr. Pierce Daunt, the town proportion being two-thirds of said £13 10s 2d.

The following isn’t relevant to the family but it is interesting to read a contemporary although extremely unfavourable account of the town!

1691 – 23rd October

The Reverend Richard Allyn, Chaplain of H.M. Ship Centurion, in his Ms. Journal, writes, “The town of Kinsale is a large filthy hole that contains nothing good in it beside honest Parson Tomms.  I was glad to leave so vile a place, tho’ indeed sorry to part with P.T., and the two only fit men for Christian conversation besides himself in the whole town viz., Mr. Stawell, the Mayor and Parson Mead’.

1732 – 10 July

Reference to Edward Brinn, merchant


1734 – 23rd October

Andrew Ruddock, gent, sworn burgess


1741 – 8th July

George Ruddock sworn freeman and burgess


Provosts and Soveraigns of Kinsale

1753 George Ruddock

1754 George Ruddock

1770 George Ruddock

1773 George Ruddock eleceted for the remainder of the year following death of Edward

Heard died October 27, 1773


1755 – 24th June

Noblet Ruddock admitted freeman


1755 ref. To Noblet Ruddock for confirming the presentment

There are no references that I could see in the text relating to the Ruddock’s shipping business. I did see a note about goods of John Symons, shipwright dating from 1678, and there is a Thomas Chudleigh shipwright of Kinsale whose will was dated 1706, and who was builder of the Royal Frigate the Kinsale.  I noticed a John Chudleigh in Kinsale as early as 1652.  In a record dating from 1749 when the Rev. Barton Parkinson was raising money for two silver flagons, George Ruddock and a Thomas Chudleigh both gave 11s 4 ½ d each..

Council meeting 27th May 1776

Item: That Thomas Ruddock, James Maddox etc sworn burgesses

present at the council meeting George Ruddock.

Calendar of Kinsale Documents.

The Calendar of Kinsale, held in the Trinity Library, is in fact an unpublished series of volumes of documents relating to Kinsale, and in particular Grand Jury Presentments from the 17th to the early 19th century compiled by Michael Mulcahy.  These like Caulfield, are not indexed and we had to speed-read the volumes for any references to the Ruddock family.  George Ruddock was a member of the Grand Jury from at least 1743 to 1751.  Unfortunately, we found very few references to him other than his presence as a member of the Grand Jury.  We did find the following reference which I think refers to a toilet?:

‘Mr. Lewis Leary and Mr. George Ruddock to be Overseers for public necessary houses to be built on the Old Quay [three to be built in the town, one to be built on Captain Chudleigh’s Slip]

1757 October

‘Whereas presentment has been made by the Grand Jury of this town, demising to Mr George Ruddock all that Ground or Slobb lying and situated between Mr Lewis  Leary’s holdings and the said Mr. George Ruddock’s on the old Quay.  And the said Ruddock having given his Right of the same to the said Lewis Leary, we therefore find and present that the said Lewis Leary shall make use of the said ground or slob as he shall think proper, he leaving a slip for the public use of the town.’

There were also a number of reference to Edward Brinn, described as ‘merchant’.  In 1713 Mr. Edward Brinn was chamberlain of the town of Kinsale, in 1737 Edward Brinn was still alive, but by 1740 there was a reference to the executrix of Mr. Edward Brinn in reference to the Corporation House.

Church of Ireland registers – Kinsale

The Church of Ireland registers for Kinsale parish are held on microfilm at the National Archives.  We searched the baptismal registers from 1707 to 1723 for any Ruddock baptisms.  The only entry we found was the following:

1708 – 12th January

Baptised Joseph son of Joseph Ruddock

We then searched marriages from 1730 onwards but were unable to find either the first or second marriage of George Ruddock.  There was however a note in the baptisms that read: ‘No Registry of marriage to be found from the above date August 27th 1749 until February 14th 1755’ and the same applies to baptisms and burials.  We were also unable to find the burial of George Ruddock in ca. 1778.

We did however find the following burial while rewinding the film:

1690 – 9th November

Buried George son of George Ruddock

So we then checked the baptismal registers from 1684 to 1698 but could find no Ruddock baptisms.

Inishannon parish registers:

We searched the baptismal registers for Inishannon parish from 1697 forwards to 1734 and found the following baptisms:

1707 – 15th June

Baptised Parnel the daughter of Thomas Ruddock

1708 – 18th November

Baptised George the son of Thomas Ruddock

1710 – 30th October

Baptised Edward the son of Thomas Ruddock


1713 – 16th April

Baptised Joseph the son of Thomas Ruddock

1716 – 3rd April

Baptised Andrew the son of Thomas Ruddock

1719 – 4th May

Baptised Garthred the daughter of Thomas Ruddock

1721 – 31st December

Baptised John and Thomas sons of Thomas Ruddock

1724 – 19th April

Baptised Noblet the son of Thomas Ruddock

We searched the marriage registers from 1693 to 1748 and found the two following marriages:


1697 – 3rd January

Married Thomas Northridge and Catherine Ruddock

1732 – 27th January

Married Daniel Deason and Parnel Ruddock

We then searched from 1693 to 1764 for Ruddock burials and found the following:

1712 – 3rd February

Buried George Ruddock

1723 – 20th March

Buried Garthred Ruddock widdow

1727 – 15th March

Buried Edward son of Thomas Ruddock

1740 – 9th June

Buried Garthred daughter of Thomas Ruddock


We also noted the following baptism:

1734 – 4th September

Buried George son of Edward Brinn


In the vestry minutes a George Ruddock is noted as a vestryman in April 1700, Church Warden in 1702, and his name was recorded up to 1708.  A Thomas Ruddock was a vestryman in 1709 and again in 1715.

Index to Wills: Cork and Ross: 1595-1867

We searched the above index and found two relevant entries:

Ruddock, George Currenure 1712

Ruddock, George Kinsale 1778

The original wills don’t unfortunately survive, as they were destroyed in the fire at the Public Records Office in 1922.


Cork Historical and Archaeological Society Journal 1972 vol. 77

‘The Rev. Henry Maule of Shandon and the Charity School Movement’ by Sean de Peitia

Maule writing from Bath in 1716 to the Rev. Henry Newman, Secretary of SPCK [Society for the Promotion of Christian Knowledge]: ‘Any packet yt.[that]may be designed for me will come safe if directed to Mr. Noble Ruddock Merct. in Bristol to be forwarded to me at Corke in Ireland…. Since my coming here this Mr. Ruddock formerly of my Parish, has very cheerfully subscribed five pd. a year to my charity school.’

We looked at a website relating to Bristol and Avon family history ( that has an index ‘taken from extracts in an original ms. Book of Affidavits of Burials in wool’ as well as ‘Inhabitants in the parish of Templeassessable for the cleansing the common sewer’ and other sources.  There were three Ruddocks listed:

Andrew Ruddock             mariner            St. Augustine                     Feb 1724

Joseph Ruddock            mariner            St. Augustine                     Nov 1724

Noblett Ruddock            gentleman         St. Augustine                     Jan 1726

From what I can deduce Noblett Ruddock was still alive in 1726 but Joseph and Andrew had died by 1724, unfortunately the parish register for Rev. Maule’s parish St. Mary’s Shandon are no longer extant.

The Wall Family in Ireland by Hubert Gallwey (Naas, 1970)

Refers to a Chancery Bill Dublin 28th May 1690 re: Wallstown, the plaintiff, Andrew Ruddock of Wallstown -  ‘he states that ‘these three years past and upwards he has been quiet and peaceable possessed of the lands of Wallstown and Tullagh by virtue of title yet in being and underdetermined’ and so continued ‘until of late one Cahir Callaghan, James Wall and several others came on the premises in a violent manner and committed several outrageous and cruel actions by turning your suppliant’s wife, family and goods out of the house, converted part of said goods to their own uses’.  This Ruddock was grandson of the original grantee, and had succeeded in 1685.  Callaghan doubtless belonged to the leading family of his name at Clonmeen, Co. Cork and was assisting James Wall to recover what he claimed as his ancestral estate’.  [With the Battle of the Boyne and the victory of King William, the lands remained in the hands of the Ruddock family]

At this stage we concluded research.

Further Research:


1.       Search the lessor index for the Registry of Deeds for the Ruddock family.

a.      The Registry of Deed index project indicate that there are a number of deeds relating to Andrew Ruddock dating from the first quarter of the 18th century which refer back to a lease of 1685.

b.      We should also search for all deeds recorded in the Grantor’s Index, for George Ruddock between ca. 1729 when he would have come of age, and his death in 1788.

c.      Search the 3 volume work, Wills in the Registry of Deeds, ed. Beryl Phair, for any Ruddock wills recorded there.

2.       We would also recommend searching for marriage settlements for the various Ruddock marriages where we found a year in the relevant Marriage License Bonds from the Diocesan Consistorial Courts.  Its unlikely that we will find a marriage settlement for all of these marriages, however, some of these should provide details on dowries and family property contracted between the bride and groom’s respective families at the time of marriage.

a.      George Ruddock to Hester Brinn 1739

b.      Ruddock, Andrew and Jane Leahy 1800

c.      Ruddock, Brinn and Bridget Weekes 1771

d.      Ruddock, George and Elizabeth Dawson 1798

e.      Ruddock, George and Jane Winter 1751

f.        Ruddock, Noble and Mary Anne Dawson 1822

g.      Ruddock, Susanna and Thomas Ruddock 1814

h.      Ruddock, Thomas and Ann James 1754

i.        Rudduck, George and Ann Owgan 1795

Focused research in the Registry of Deeds is likely to provide further information about how the Ruddock family emigrated from Ireland to Newfoundland in Canada.  I noticed that one of the marriages we found, that of Susanna Ruddock to Thomas Ruddock of Newfoundland in 1814, relates to your direct branch.  This would appear to indicate that Susanna married a cousin, whose family had by 1814 already left Ireland.  In other words, emigration didn’t happen all at once, but different lines of the family emigrated across generations.

Our research also showed that as late as 1860 – 1880, at least one branch of the Ruddock family remained in Kinsale, and continued to practise what had become the family trade of Shipbuilding.

[1] This appears to be the Thomas Ruddock of St. John.  The couple married in 1814, and presumably the bride then followed her husband to Newfoundland.
