Hi Tom, I believe you will find all the information you require in "Burkes Irish Family Records" (your local library may have a copy) You are connected through my ancestors, the Lloyds of Limmerick, who married into both the Minchin and Ferrar families. A Capt William Ferrar married Marie Lloyd (dtr of Rickard Lloyd and Anne Gough ) in the early 1700's (sorry no dates) Edward Lloyd married Abigale Minchin in 1750 (he died in 1785 leaving 3 sons and 2 dtrs.)I am currently chasing a line that went to USA (the Minchin-Lloyds) one of whome was involved with the assination of President Lincon. I have the Lloyd line back to 1560 and would be happy to send you a copy. Many of the "gentry" of Limmerick married in and out of eachothers families several times so, apart from your distant connections to me, you also have connections to the Blennerhassetts, The FitzGeralds (Knights of Glin) The Massys of Stoneville (they still live there) etc. etc. I urge you to refer to "Burkes" as there is masses if information, including heaps of descendants in both Australia and New Zealand. Happy hunting, Brian.
