Friendly Cove is on the north side of the townland of Murreagh (meaning sandy soil) in the parish of Durrus in West Cork. Captain Richard Tonson Rye lived at Ryecourt,Crookstown near Farnanes about 10 miles due west of Cork City on the road to Macroom in 1876 where he owned 3,412 acres. I think the family are still there after some hundreds of years. I think they were merchants in Cork city before that. I believe the same is true of Abraham Morris and his family. There was a Michael H Morris in Durrus in 1876 with 1,157 acres, also a William M in Durrus with 36 acres. Three Evansons jointly owned 2.272 acres somewhere in County Cork in 1876. They were Rev Charles (dec'd), St. Andrews Vicarage, Bristol, Rev Richard , Llansory Rectory, Monmouthshire and Rev Robert of Armsworth Vicarage, Lancashire. My guessis that these families were intermarried.
