Yes, that's correct Shane.

My main interest of research is in Co. Monaghan, and came across where  Arthur St. George M.A. was installed Rector of Tydavnet on 13th Sept 1706, when I looked him up it gave the family connections/pedigree across families in Derry/Dublin/Monaghan/Kilkenny/Fermanagh.

I sent these to someone who is researching them but don't have them saved on my PC.

It's the www.rootschat address (link) above I sent to them.

hallmark, back in September 2008 a lot of info was posted  after I had asked  about this family which was very helpful to me in my search for Howard Avenel Bligh St George.

It was on the Ireland site and was under the heading "St George family in Ireland"
I think Mike stg will find it very interesting.

I need to get a photo to Mike but am not conversant how to do it and would probably muck it up if I did so I am waiting for help from my family. Hopefully not too long to wait.

I have not yet traced a slim book about H.A.B.St.G which was on sale in the WW1 museum Ypres. I am still kicking myself for not buying it when I saw it. Out of print now.       Viktoria.

My Name is Patrick St George and I live in a small town in NSW in Australia called Narrandera.
My St George ancestor was named John St George and he came from Kilkenny to Australia with his wife, Ann Watts, on a ship called the "Runnymead" in 1842. He would have been about 23 at the time. He died in Sydney in 1864. So far I haven't been able to trace him back further than this. Perhaps there is someone out there who can help?

Hi
I live up the road from Kilrush, which is where the St. George family live. Their ancestor was a soldier in General Abel Warren's troup who came to Kilkenny fighting in Cromwell's army. Many soldiers in Cromwell's army received land in Ireland in lieu of payment for fighting in the New Model army. The family have lived there since the middle of the 17th century - it was a way to keep order in Ireland after Cromwell conquered the island and to pay off the soldiers.
The house can be rented through the Hidden Houses association - this is a link to it.... http://www.ihh.ie/houses/34/Kilrush-House/index.cfm.
You can see the house and there are some interesting photos of it here.... http://www.ihh.ie/houses/34/Kilrush-House/index.cfm

Hi my name is Anne Marie Hiskey nee St George and I come from Doolin Co Clare Ireland. My father Gerard St George is from Ballyvaughan Co Clare. Our ancestors came from Galway and in Kilcolgan there is a manor which belonged to Charles St George. The manor is Tyrone House. I have been told that Charles housed the Black and Tans here during the troubles and it was burnt by the local IRA.

I replied to this in 2011 (No. 13 on page 2). Not much seems to have happened since then. I joined a St George family group on FT DNA and am currently waiting for the results of Y DNA testing. The other members of the group originate from France via Canada whereas My roots are in Kilkenny in Ireland. If there is another St George from Kilkenny or anywhere else in Ireland for that matter, who is researching their roots then it would be really good if one of the St George males was also to have a Y DNA test done to look for possible connections. If you are interested then go to FT DNA and look for St George and go from there. Patrick St George.
