Thanks for the prompt reply.

Unfortunately it doesn't really fit as we know the family came from Southern Ireland.

Best wishes

Roscommon / Where or What is Camlin?
« on: Friday 29 February 08 14:19 GMT (UK)  »
I wonder if anyone can help me. We have a letter written by my ggg grandfather in which he states that his father was a William Phibbs Irwin. He also mentions his cousin General Irwin who had just died c1890 aged about 80 so I was able to trace him and through him the parents. That generation all seem to have been born at Camlin.

I cannot find Camlin as a place but I have recently found ahouse called Camlin in which some Irwins lived. So could somebody enlighten me as to whether or not there is a Camlin village/hamlet etc or does Camlin definately mean the house.

Also does anyone have any idea whether or not there is anything written about the Irwins anywhere.


Westmorland / Re: Fothergills of Mallerstang.

In Richard Fothergill's "The Fothergills - A First History" he writes:

"Many Fothergills lived in Mallerstang, almost certainly migrating over Wild Boar Fell into the valley. It is probable that the early residents would have been younger sons who would not inherit the tenancy of their parent's farm, but who had sufficient determination to develop a new piece of land in their own right."

I don't know whether or not you know the geography of the area but in case you don't Wild Boar Fell is between Ravenstonedale and Mallerstang.

He then has about 64 A4 pages about the Fothergills in Mallerstang with quite a few family trees but I've had a quick look and can't see your John Fothergill.

This book was followed by "A Second Family History" in which Richard Fothergill published his further research along with information that came from other Fothergill members after the first book was published.

I think you would find intersting but then you probably know all about it already.

Good luck with your hunting
