I have the Plovers on the west coast of Ireland. My grandmother tells of family folklore that 3 brothers left Liverpool and bought land in Ireland. I suspect that they sailed from Liverpool and lived elsewhere.

As with many Irish who suffered in the potato famine, many moved to America. I now live in Boston and have found much more of the Plover side of my tree than when I was living in North London.

I have it back to Patrick Plover b abt 1835?
Cetainly his son John Plove b1865 is a direct ancestor of mine.

There are a number of Plovers in the USA who are also persuing this tree. So far I have no actual connection to the English Plovers, but I would love to find one.

I think that Eleanor Plover was on the Mayflower, and so has many Americans trying to tie their trees to her. I am not connected to her, that I know of.

What info do you have then?
Can you copy and paste some of this onto this forum?

Where else are you researching?

Regards

Steve
