I have managed to research my family back to 1811 when they lived in Templemore, Tipperary. The name is Davis and the family were Jones Henry Davis who married I believe a Frances Mary Bowks in the Carlow Diocese in 1810. They had 4 children, all born in Tipperary, a son Jones Henry Jnr who married Mary Kidd from Carlow, a daughter Jane who died aged 8, a son George Armstrong who was a Surgeon and another son Samuel Wesley who was a Curate in the Parish of Athlone. They are all buried in The Church of Ireland Parish Church in Templemore. My problem is I cannot find where they originally came from. There is no birth record for Jones Henry Davis Snr in Templemore and I cannot find out any more information about him. I wonder if there is anybody out there who is also researching the family. Any help to further my research would be appreicated.August 4, 2017 at 1:58 am #9361SneffParticipant

Hi, Have just seen your reply to my query, many thanks for getting back to me. However, I don’t have any of those papers, can you tell me where I can get my hands on copies.
Sorry its been so long. We have just moved into a new house and also taken some time out to have a holiday and just got back, hence the delay in finding your reply.
Many thanks again for getting back to me.
