Jim: I was reading your message about your ancestors in Ireland, I don't know if I will help you any but my ancestors came from Skibereen, my grandmother was born at the big manor house on Lough Hyne, her name was Catherine
anna Mona Brougham Becher, born in 1866, her father was Capt. John Richard Hedges Becher married to Lucinda Hull, her greatgrandfather was Henry Owens Becher abt.1775 to 1864.Great-greatgrandfather was Richard Hedges Becher married Letita Hungerford in 1772.
I don't know if this will mean anything to you but hope this helps, by the way, we originated in England, our ancestor Fane Becher was granted land of 30,000 acres around Lough Hyne by Elizabeth the 1st, for whatever reason I don't know, she probably wanted to establish english in Ireland, it was around 1554, somewhere in there.
