Family Tree

A branch of the family from Cork settled in Youghal during the 15th century.  It flourished here from that period until the year 1642, when it entirely disappears from the scene.  During the period of its settlement here, the name appears frequently in municipal affairs, both among the Mayors and Bayliffs of the town.
