Hi, im new to this but i have recently been looking up the family tree as my grandmother is 100 yrs old this week, she was mentioned in an earlier post, Mary Herward (now Hyland ) was Pakes sister and she is still going strong, she is my grandmother :-)

Wow, does she have any knowledge of anyone called Martin Herward ?

I've got a lot of info from Mary (my grand aunt) who has just turned 100 for the tree over the years and also from church records, etc, and we don't have a Martin in our tree.

It is possible I've missed someone though. Maybe you can supply more detail and I can check if he ties in anywhere?

Sorry took me a while to reply. My tree shows Martin Herward marrying Mary Beaty around 1830 in Ireland. I think their children were Ann, Mary, Patrick  Catherine, Michael and John. I think our strand runs from John who married Ann Simcock. They seem to have Martin, John, Catherine, Mary, Ann, Margaret, Sarah and Winifred. From there, Martin was in Stoke, England where family has continued to live. He died in WW1.

This is info I have gathered from looking at this intermittently - mixed confidence in whether I have fitted it together right. I think family members left Ireland for USA or England At the time of the famine.

Correction to a comment made

Hereward/Herward family haven't left the Hollymount/Roundfort area.

Pake's son PJ Herward  (Patrick Joseph) is still there. When Pake passed away he left the farm and house to PJ. He operates his business from there, but lives with his family in Galway. 

PJ corrected the spelling of Herward after some research into it. His children go by Hereward
