Hi Edna - thanks for the reply. I'll send you a printout by email of what I have of this part of the family, starting with John's father (James) down just a couple of generations. Di Boyce (she's also posted replies on this Forum) has it that John (the father) married a Jane Thomas, but it would make sense that son John's second name came from his mother, Ida Edwards. Seems I have some updating to do!
Do you have any further details of John and Dorothy's family - I'd appreciate some info there if you have it.
Our family is not really close to this branch of the Revingtons - John Edwards R is a 4th cousin once removed. Our line is closer to the so-called Dublin and Tralee branches (descended from William, the youngest of the 'original' 3 brothers who went to Ireland).
I'll send you another email direct to your own address.
