SCULLY Family History

This is an Anglicized form of the Old Gaelic name "O' Scolaidhe" or "O' Scolaire". The Gaelic prefix "O" indicated "male descendant of", plus "Scolaide", a Crier, i.e. one whose duty it was to announce important forthcoming events, or "Scolaire", a student. Originally a Co. Westmeath Clan, the Scullys were driven by Anglo-Norman pressure to Munster, circa 1170. One branch of the family settled in Lorrha (North Tipperary), and another established itself in South Tipperary, near Cashel. Clan members were interred by the famous Rock of Cashel and have a memorial there called Scully's Cross. Today, the name is widespread in Counties Cork and Tipperary...

My Scully's arrived in New York & landed in Brooklyn's 10 ward & 3rd District in 1852. The Father was James (B1813-1817) and Mother was Catherine (B b1817-1818) In the 1860 UScensus they listed 6 Children. My Great Grandfather Patrick (B 1839) Thomas (B 1842) James (B 1844) all in Ireland. Then Richard (B 1856) Dennis (B 1857) and Mary (B 1859) in Brooklyn, NY After the 1860 Census available information on them has been extremely sparse at best. So if your Scully is from Brooklyn we just might be connected if any of the above matches your information, Good Luck Jim
