Hi Audrey

I have managed to collect a good deal of information on the Farringtons and am just trying to see if anyone has connections with this family so that we could exchange info. Thanks  :)

Hiya Jud,

There were a few Farringtons living in Co. Wicklow at the time
of Griffiths Valuation taking place in the county in 1852 - 53

Hi

Thanks Chris. I've checked the Griffiths Valuation. I reckon there were at least 15 Farrington families living there at the time. Have tried to make sense of the hundreds of Farrington entries in the parish records but still have a long way to go.

Catherine, please do tell your friend - although it could well be that I am he! :)

All the best

Brendan
