Hi - no idea if I can connect with you however my family search has taken me to several places in Ireland and Engalnd (well all over the globe actually) if Drinkwater-Lunn is anywhere in your family tree, then it's possible we can connect up. I'm trying to find my Great Great Grandmother Elly, who came from possibly Tarlee, Tippary or Ennis. She married an English Captian of the guard and became (or so I believe) Drinwater-Lunn based in Aston Cross Gloustershire. My Great Grandfather was part of the Drinkwater-Lunn (Brewers in Glouster) sort of. His parents died when young and he and his brother were raised separately by other members of the family. I have found a family member in Wales, we believe that her Great Uncle and my Great Grandfather (Thomas Alfred Drinkwater-Lunn) were brothers. As she has been trying to search for the brother for a number of years.
Hope after so much time, you find this message.
Regards
Chantelle

Hi,
I saw a Nathaniel Drinkwater and a Mary Foxall. (she was a widow)
1642 A marriage Licence in Dublin.
1653 he was listed as Alderman in Dublin. (this was listed as a Will)
1686 Mary's death. (listed as a Will in 1688)
There is also a marriage of a Catherine Drinkwater to a William Standish in Dublin in 1661.
No trace anywhere else.

the next post about the Lunn connection, have you got family in Australia?
Also, can you please give some age or years to the family.
Was Elly a Drinkwater or a Lunn?
