Hi i am a 17 year old student and i am very interested in my family history.
This is just a little bit of information passed down through our family, i hope it will help you and if you have any information please pass it on to me. My ancestor traveled over to England from Ireland during the potato famine, jumped off the boat in Garston Docks in Liverpool and settled in the first street he got to. I don't know who he married but I know his son (my grandfather) married a Winifred Larkin. Apparently our family had a big estate in Ireland but my ancestor passed it on to his cousin instead of through the family. I don't know how much of this is true.
If you find any information on this please contact me and I will you as soon as i find any. Thank you Sarah.
Ps, i have just been on the internet and translated the writing on the crest. ' loyal au mort' is french for 'loyal to the death' and 'prend moi tel que je suis' is also french for 'take me such as i am'.
