Yes, that helps a lot and it was very interesting. That is the most I've heard about the Futhey origins. Did someone inherit Inez Bidwell's papers? It would certainly be a shame to lose them. Do you have a translation from the Latin of the documents you mention?
What you have relayed has really piqued my interest now in the Futheys. I was somewhat discouraged before because of the conflicting guesses that I was reading. Now I need a good Scottish/Irish history book. Thanks for posting that interesting history. Nancy
