I have St. leger as my middle name. My family adopted the idea of continuing the St.Leger name after the end of the line on one of the many fragmented family trees. It is now custom for the first son of each new generation to be called St.Leger. However, this only goes back two generations and I'm keen to find out more........

James St.Leger Franklin.

I also have St Leger ancestors -  I am descended from Sir William's daughter Elizabeth who married Murchadh O'Brien, Earl of Inchiquin.  I wondered if you had any information about Sir William's wife Gertrude de Vries or his mother Elizabeth Roth.

Best wishes

On the ball Girl!
Did you read of the curse of Doneraile?Good one I thought.How come the name of the winning horse wasn't mentioned?
If you stick with one of Prendy's horses you will at least get your money back.Just tell them I sent you!!

Stay loose 'R' Kid. Goggy. ;) ;D

I am researing the name St. Leger from Doneraile (co. Cork) and from the rest of Ireland, too.

Have been reseaching this name for the past 25 years plus so have accummulated a LARGE database of St. Legers.

Would welcome hearing from anyone else who is researching their St. Leger roots.

Hi stlegermay,

Have a look at buttonmoon's Surname interests on the Wicklow board.

The 1796 Spinning Wheel Census (Flax Growers List) on Joh Hayes failteromhat.com site lists one St Leger ...

John St. Leger, Quin, Clare

There's a lengthy list of them on Griffiths Valuation extracts 1848-64 which are on the same website.

The Hon. Miss Elizabeth St. Leger, afterwards the wife of Richard Aldworth, Esq., appears to have been initiated as a Freemason at Doneraile Court sometime between 1710 and 1718. .
