Commoners & BIFR1976, our Main Sources for this page, show very different ancestries for both the Galweys of Lota and the Galweys of Carrick. We give precedence to BIFR1976, below, but start with what is given by Commoners so as to not lose the information it contains.
Geffrey de Galwey, Mayor of Cork (a 1430)
m. Elizabeth de Courcy (dau of ?? de Courcy, Lord Kingsale)
1. Edward Galwey of Dungannon, co. Cork
