You probably can't go much further back than the
Pedigrees of the St. Leger families, 12th - 19th c., compiled by the Rev. Edward Frederick St. Leger,
Give a man a record and you feed him for a day.
Teach a man to research, and you feed him for a lifetime.

Fortunately for us there are so many other sources of information available today that Rev. Edward St. Leger did not have access too.  We are now very fortunate.  I am trying to establish a link between the main Doneraile line and the Tipperary line.

Update on my recent messages. . .

My St Leger husband has recently taken a DNA test and amazingly he has three separate DNA matches with living descendants of the St. Legers of Heywards Hill line which now proves the link between the St. Legers of Shinrone and  Ballingarry and Borrisokane with the St, Legers of Heywards Hill and back to Ulcombe.

In 1970 I worked for a solicitor in Dublin who had vast amounts of papers on the St. Legers of Doneraile from various church registers. All to do with the claim of American St. Legers to the title and property in Doneraile. Seems their claim failed, all to do with someone being born before the parents were married!

Hi SidSilverSurfer
The lady you are researching Honora St. Ledger is my Great Grandmother, i can fill you in on the details i have if you contact me, hope you get this message. 

Am trying to find out about  Honora St. Ledger who may have been born in 1857 at Headford, Galway.  Do you happen to have any record of this lady who ends up, I believe, as Honora Collins.

Family rumour is that she fell on hard times and the family did not want to know but we all realise that this could be complete bunkem !!!
