Hi Sue. Yes indeed I am related to the CUFF'S of Shapwick,Winterbourne Whitchurch,Hilton & Old Milton,to which we now know as Milton Abbas. My gt'grandparents(maternal side),were Harry Cuff who married Rebecca White both of Shapwick,Dorset. Youstated that your line extends from a George Cuff who married Mary Ball Whiffen, it was William Cuff jnr who acctually married Mary Ball Whiffen,1847 St Bartholomews Church Shapwick Dorset.From 1849 to 1870 they had eleven children,Mary died 09th May 1898 & William died 12th March 1904. As to your question as to did the Cuff's come from Ireland,At this moment in time I am not 100% sure,but I think it was the other way around,as to the Cuff's leaving Somerset to settle in Ireland,But I am open to be corrected on this issue.
