Ooooh, you lovely people!

So, landedestates.ie states: "The Sandys family also held some land in Derrane including Durham Lodge. James Sandys of Durham Lodge owned 158 acres in the 1870s".  nuigalway.ie adds detail for the Sandys residences.  George Sandys and family are on the 1901 census. George d1904, will proved 1905.

Townland:- Derrane
Parish:- Kilbride
Barony:- Ballintober South
County:- Roscommon

There are several trees on the internet with the Sandys line going back past Sir Edwin Sandys (Jacobean) and Archbishop Edwin Sandys (Elizabethan) into the 1300s.  I don't want to crib trees without proving facts, and I have sometimes struggled to find source documentation.  Now I can be satisfied that Elizabeth Aldwell Sandys was linked to the Sandys family of Durham Lodge this gives me new lines to tug.  Now my next step is to tug the lines to prove when and where she was born!

I am now an exceedingly happy bunny!   :)  :)
