    Founder of a large part of our family

  • Notes 
    • According to Fred E. Bradford, Thomas died on Long Island in Blue Hill Bay, was protestant of faith. He also lived in Brooksville, ME before moving to Deer Isle, ME.

      It is reported that Thomas was Scottish and settled in Northern Ireland. When Thomas settled in Maine is unknown, but he had deeded land about 1774 in what was called Majabagaduce which is now Penobscot and Brooksville.

      The CONARY's are originally Scottish and moved here from Ireland. If you know the history of Scotland and Ireland, you will know the English transplanted Scottish people into Ireland from the 1600's through the early 1800's in hopes that the Scottish would control the "unruly" Irish. As it turned out, the Scottish turned out to be more Irish than the Irish themselves.

      During the many immigrations to this country many Scottish/Irish came with the true Irish. They came to be known as Ulster Scots.
      ——
      THOMAS CONARY was the first settler of what is known as Black Island, lying in the Reach, or, as it is sometimes called, Conary's Island, and, as before stated, was included within the limits of the town by the act of the Legislature of 1868. As has been understood, Mr. Conary was a native of Ireland. He was a very witty person, and in former years I used to hear of many of his witty and comical expressions. His first wife was the daughter of the ancestor of the Limeburner family, now living in Brooksville, by adoption. Mr. Limeburner emigrated from Scotland before the Revolutionary War, and with him came, besides his own family, two children, a son and a daughter adopted by him. The son was Cunningham Limeburner, who died at an advanced age, not far from 1825, in Brooksville, and the daughter, Mrs. Conary, was, I believe, a sister by birth to him. After her death he married a daughter of Mercy Staples, and a sister of Messrs. Joshua and Moses Staples, and by both marriages had ten sons, one of whom made this town his permanent residence - Mr. Thomas Conary, Jr., who died at an advanced age. His other sons settled in towns in this vicinity, and all of the name in this and other towns near us are the descendants of Mr. Conary, Sr. He had three daughters of whom I have had knowledge. One was the wife of Mr. Robinson Crockett, Jr., who lived in this town many years, afterward removing to Brooksville, where he died; another was the wife of Mr. Ebenezer Marks, of Brooksville; another of the late Mr. Amaziah Roberts, of Sedgwick.
      ——
      The names Conroy, Conry, Conree and Conary in Ireland are all derived from the native Gaelic Mac Conraoi and O'Conraoi Septs of County Galway and from the O'Conaire and O'Maolchonaire Septs of Munster and Roscommon. Other anglicized versions of these names include Conrahy, Connery and King.,
