I quickly found the record for my 2x great-grandfather's sister, Julia Creeden. She was baptized on July 3, 1842 in Clondrohid Parish. Her parents were Patrick Creeden and Mary Cokley and sponsors were Daniel Cokley and Hanora Creeden. The townland was given as Carrigapooka. I've also seen the last names for the parents spelled as Creedon or Creedan and Coakley, but I'll go with the spellings as they appear in the records.

Meanwhile, I'm going to start listing the Creedon and any related families that I find in the registers. This post covers Creedens in the Clondrohid baptism registers from July to December, 1842. I was really having trouble making out some of the townlands, so I'm using the closest match from the list of Clondrohid townlands on the Irish Time website.
The page with Julia Creeden lists baptisms recorded in Clondrohid Parish for July 1842. I didn't find any other Creedon or Coakley references for July, August, November, or December 1842. Following are the other Creeden and Carrigapooka listings that I found from September to December 1842.
