Original Shorten settlers in Co Cork
« on: Tuesday 06 June 17 08:55 BST (UK) »
Morning all, new to this site and its been a while since I did any digging into my tree after getting stuck, so hoping there are some kind people out there who can help me knock down a few walls !!!
Having read the History of Bandon, I discovered my Shorten's originated from Somerset under the 1620's plantations. Is it possible to find them recorded anywhere, as I believe my line is descended from them, and of course like many families at the time, the name patterns repeat so often that in the end you do not know who is who. Any suggestions gratefully appreciated.
Also would like contact with any others researching this name. Did connect and correspond years ago with like minded who I shared my info with but have lost their contacts, TIA xxxxxxx

Hi, i am also researching the shorten surname. My 3rd grt grandmother is margaret shorten born abt 1803 died 1864. She married thomas good in 1822 i think. The goods may have come over at the same time but nothing proved yet.
