I have come across your name while researching my “Purvines” family history; this is why I am writing to you.I was hoping that you would have a piece of information that would help my research.
The following is my brief history:
Thomas Purvines (Purrines, Purviance, Purveyance) married Matilda/Martha Kilpatrick in Ireland in the early 1800’s.
They had 10 children: Ann, Thomas, Robert, Samuel, Letitia, Rebecca, Catherine, Margaret, Matilda, and Elizabeth.All born in Ireland (county Donegal).All but Margaret immigrated to Australia.Margaret married William Wallace and I presume she stayed in Ireland.
I hope that you are able to help me even if in a tiny way
