Re: Frances Sharp, Luke Flood, Queens Co Ireland 1755
From the manuscript "Sharpe of Wiltshire, Gloucestershire, Kingdom of England; Roundwood in Queen's County, Kingdom of Ireland; Salem, Province of West New Jersey; 1645-1895" by Foster C. GRIFFITHS (1906), which I consulted at the Philadelphia Historical Society:
Anthony SHARP of Roundwood was grandson-- through Isaac-- of Anthony SHARP, Quaker of Dublin.Anthony SHARP of Roundwood had [a son who d. at age 19 and] an only daughter, Frances who m. Luke FLOOD, Esq., eldest son of Robert FLOOD of Middlemount in Queen's County, Ireland.Their children were:
Robert Anthony FLOOD SHARP who m.1 on 6 Aug 1783 Mary HORAN of Dublin whose father James was an Alderman.Robert & Mary had 2 daughters: Winifred who m. ALLEN, and Catherine.Robert m.2 on 3 Nov. 1801 Mary BATTIER and had son William Edward FLOOD SHARP "who was living in 1882, in his 80's, without issue."
"All the daughters of Frances and Luke-- their children all listed as 'dead.'"
From "Roundwood and the SHARPs," an article by Brian de Breffny (which I found from a websearch and is available to be read for free online) William Edward FLOOD SHARP m. Isabella Jane DONOVAN.They assigned the Roundwood estate to an attorney to cover mortgages and in 1859 he was living at Westminster in London.
Brian de Breffny gives further details concerning Frances and Luke's family.Besides their son Robert Anthony FLOOD SHARP, there were four daughters and another son.
SIBLINGS of Robert Anthony FLOOD SHARP:
**Catherine, who m. Rev. Sewell STUBBER of Monaclear, Queen's Co. IRE.Their dau. Eleanor m. Rev. Alexander Chetwood HAMILTON
**Grace, who m. James HORAN of Lisbugny, Queen's County
**Frances, who m. Thomas WHITE of Kelladooley, Queen's County and had issue [but no names listed.]
**Jane, who m. Ephraim FITZGERALD of Ballyroan, Queen's County.
**Luke [no further info given]
I, too, have been interested in tracing this line while attempting to identify the Luke SHARP who was in Shelby County KY on the 1810 census b. circa 1785-1794.
