Re WEXFORD Maudes Posted by:Robert Maude In reply to: William Haskell Date:13 December 2004
I have read with interest your messages posted on December 16 1999 and on January 20 and 21 2001.I am Robert Maude and I can trace my family back to Clogh (Liskinfere) Gorey, County Wexford, Ireland.Records go back to the early 1700s.I was born and raised in Ireland but later worked in and now live in the UK.I met your grandmother, Mabel Maude Huckaby, in 1959/60 when she and a companion visited Europe.At that time, I was not interested in family ancestry but age has changed that, and I now have compiled an extensive family tree.
I would like to compare notes with you on the Wexford Maudes.Can you give me any pointers to the source information which states that Robert Maude was a Freeman of Wexford in 1776? and to the information that indicates that our Maudes came from around Sowerby, Halifax, in the West Riding in about 1666?
There is a lot more I need to ask you and I have quite a bit to tell you.However, first of all I wish to make contact with you.
