The Wolfenden family of Lambeg
« on: Wednesday 04 August 10 15:44 BST (UK) »
Hi, I looking for any info on the Wolfendens - originally I believe of Lambeg although they may have moved to Dublin in the mid 1800s.

I have a Robert Kenny of Mount Mellick marrying a Sarah Wolfenden c 1743.
Their first child was born c 1745 in MtMellick.

So Im trying to trace any family of Sarah - born c 1723.

Sorry not much to go on. Maybe I should also post this in the section covering MtMellick??

Many thanks, Barbara

I've moved your post to Ireland-General since it covers several counties.

There is no access to the Wills online, you have to visit the National Archives to view the documents.

Note that like many of the Wills in the National Archives, some or all of those listed above may not be the actual wills but extracts, or index entries only.
