Foxton, Co. Wexford, Ireland

I am trying to connect my Foxton family with the Foxtons of England. Edward Foxton, born ca1788, maybe Enniscorthy, Co. Wexford, Ireland (one source says he was born in England), died unknown, married Elizabeth Ferris, born 1790, maybe Co. Wexford, Ireland, died after 1851, Ontario, Canada. They had three children, Edward Jr., John Foxton (born 1819, Co. Wexford, Enniscorthy, Ireland, died 1899, Merlin, Ontario, Canada--he was my great-grandfather)and a daughter, name and birth date unknown.
The Foxtons of England go back to the Netherlands. Mine were said to have originally come from Flanders, Netherland. Mine also were said to have been granted land in Co. Wexford after backing Wm. of Orange.
Any information would be very much appreciated.
Thank you.
LucyON
