The Crossle genealogical abstracts were created by Dr Francis Crossle and his son Philip Crossle in the late 19th century. They are a rich genealogical resource for Irish family historians. Notably, they created copies of prerogative court wills from 1620 to 1804, which were destroyed in the fire at the Public Record Office in Dublin in 1922. Crossle also provides a wealth of material for those tracing military ancestors including yearly Army returns from 1767 through to 1816. Furthermore, Crossle is an excellent resource for those tracing their ancestors in Northern Ireland.
Begin your search broad and then narrow your search. For example, search for only a surname and, if you need to narrow your results, edit your search by adding a first name or year.
Not all the records include a county. It is best to search without the county and then add it later if necessary.
