Dathai,
         I am overloaded !!! It has just taken me one and a half hours to transcribe the first page of John Martins will, It is going to cost that friend of my wife's a large number of beers to get me to do the other 28 pages. However , now I think that I deserve a glass of wine.
          Yet again, to you and Aghadowey many thanks for your efforts all through the afternoon.

Regards

Dathai,
          Again , many thanks. My wife is now trawling Canadian records looking for the birth of Edward Downes Martin, father John, who appears to have been born in Toronto. So far no luck but most of it is away over my head.

My sons are direct descendants of Edward Downes Martin.  I have quite a lot of information regarding the family including a copy of Edward's baptism, which I would be willing to share if anyone is interested.  I still have gaps including how Edward, as such a young orphan travelled from Canada back to Ireland.  It should be noted that "Downes" was one of Edward's given names and not part of his surname but he adopted it as such some time after his second marriage to Rose Lily Caddick. 

I think Kinkerswell must be the husband of the friend helping Julia and if so I would very much like to be in touch.  I do know what you mean about that HUGE will!
