It has been some time since I have been able to look further into my Elmes line, what with x 2 busy Children to entertain :-) Anyhow, I have managed to make a bit of a breakthrough and it turns out that my Elmes line comes from Tintern, Curraghmore, Wexford...My GG Grandmother was Catherine Jane Elmes, Her father and mother were Edward Elmes and Catherine Elmes...Edwards father was a Samuel Elmes...Has anyone come across a link to the Elmes family in this part of Wexford...I discovered recently a batch of letters referred to as the Elmes letters which are arcived in the National archives dublin, they were written between a Samuel Elmes and Robert Morris around the end of the 1700,s in it they refer to Samuels sons, Thomas, Samuel (jnr), and King Elmes. In the letter they make reference to Samuel (Jnr) buying a farm in the late 1700,s at Curraghmore...Thomas was involved in the 1798 rebellion and served in the Milita...King was involved in the Royal Navy...do any of these names ring a bell and can anyone shed any further light on the family in Wexford?
