Title: Father - Hosford Family Dundalk
Post by: vernard on Sunday 26 February 06 16:57 GMT (UK)
I am searching for the Hosford family name from Dundalk, my grandfather's name was Joseph,  i believe he was a farmer, my fathers name was dervane gerard, my father was born in 1924, i do not have any info on my grandfather, he was probably born around 1860/70, any info would be a bonus, thank you

Hello Vernard,

I looked at http://www.failteromhat.com/griffiths.php and found this family in Co. Cork during 1851-3 when Griffiths Valuation took place in that County. Griffiths does not show them in any other Irish county during the years 1848-64. Do you know if the Hosford family were Anglicans?

All the Best,

Chrisopher

Welcome to Rootschat  :) This isn't a forum for tracing living relatives and we aren't allowed to post details of anyone living so you may need to modify your post.

The original poster (vernard) only made that one post in 2006 and hasn't been online since.

Sounds like you aren't a relative but perhaps trying to help a friend?

In the last few years there are lots more resources online (many free) so do let us know if we can help with information about deceased Hosfords.
