    Jervois is an usual name Bernie! What’s the background, do you know?

    Where is Greenfield? What religion were they?

    Unfortunately, the C of I parish records (Myross) only start in 1806 and I can find no record in the marriage licence bonds.It was suggested that the family were of Huguenot descent. It would appear from a Reg of Deeds memorial that 2 of John’s sisters, Frances and Charlotte also married into the Jervois family.

    Greenfield is located in the barony of Ibane and Barryroe in the parish of Kilkerranmore in Clonakilty. District Electoral Division is Ardfield. It’s a small townland about 44 acres.

    Jervois family were either Cof I or Huguenot?

    Steven,
    Thanks for that information. I found the marriage record of Sampson Jervois and Frances O’Hea on the http://www.irishgenealogy.ie website in the Roman Catholic marriages for West Cork.Both listed as RC.So it would appear that there is also a RC branch of the Jervois family

    I know that according to manuscripts held in National Library on the O’Hea family that John O’Heas family were Protestant and according to these manuscripts Martha’s father was a Major?. However, 2 of John and Martha’s children, John who was my great great grandfather married Honoria Deasy who was Catholic in 1826 while his brother James also married into a Catholic family (Alice White in 1838), Neither brother had any objections to their children been reared as RCs

    Again, thanks
