In Reply to: McDevitt and burning of Londonderry, Ireland by Joe Thurstenson of 637

I hadn't heard of this--do you know approx. what year as I have a McDevitt of Derry who came to Canada 1830's. I, too, would be most interested in hearing more---Anyone ?? Also, I recently learned why some of the McD's ended up with latin names ( Ferdinand, Dominic, etc) seems at one time the more affluent Irish boys were sent to Spain for their education and were thus admirers of the latin culture (unfortunately, I have no Latin names or their affluence in my ancestry, just lots of John-William-James-Thomas McDevitts)
