: Maureen, I believe that we communicated a few years back. We can trace our family back to Limerick with Michael Fosberry married to Mary Hickey, Michael married in 1833. I believe that our great, great grandfather was Michael's son Thomas and that your Francis was Thomas's brother. Where did you get that Francis's father was Henry? We were trying to identify Thomas's father.
Do you know if Michael and Mary had a daughter Catherine? Am trying to locate parents of Catherine Fosberry born mid 1840s with father Michael. Catherine (m William Phillips, Dungarvan 1862) had children Mary Ann, Emily and George, all with Fosberry as middle names, and one or more of these children were left for a while with Lady Humble (nee Elizabeth Philippa Fosberry) but I can't find exactly how they were related! Any thoughts? Family had thought Catherine's mother was Mary Hickmond but I'd wondered if this should be Hickey.
