I'm not related to this man, but researching him for a short entry in the forthcoming Dictionary of Irish Biography. He was Inspector of the Linen Board of Ireland in the 18th century and produced reports which are valuable for historians . Very little is known about his family background; he may have owned land and or bleachgreens in several places in the north of Ireland, notably at Ravenhill, Armagh. I suspect business or possible family links with Robert Richey of Augher, Tyrone and Ashmur or Ashmore of Belfast and Armagh. Anyone know anything about him?
