]There are at least two different Familys of Richmonds inIreland .One is in county Antrim the other is County Cavan.
The first Richmond was an army officer who came from Yorkshire in the 1600s who got the townland
 of Cornadarragh near Belturbet Co Cavan THe last Richmond who lived there died 2 3 years ago I am distantly related to him I live about three miles from there. My family are the only Richmonds left in area My great Grandfather was born in Cornadaragh in 1823 he moved to corraback in1865                he was called Frank. There are alot of Franks Henrys Williams and Johns which leaves it difficult to tell which is which as the Antrim Richmonds use same names. Mervyn

Hello Mervyn,

                                Thank you for your email on Henry Richmond. I have been researching my Wifeís family of Richmond in Cornadaragh since 2017

She is a direct decendent of Jane Richmond, born 1831 ?  Baptised 1831 in Cornadaragh.  According to my research there were 2 families of Richmond in Cornadaragh in the early 1800ís.  One was Abraham Richmond and his wife Elizabeth & the other was John Richmond and his wife Sarah. I have been able to trace7 children to John and Sarah ( see attachment) but there could be others as there is a gap between William and John.   I have also traced Abraham and Elizabethís children.  I cannot find any records of John and Abrahamís parents.

                If you are able to help me fill in any gaps I would really appreciate it.

Please do not post your email on the forum Mervyn, this is how spammer pick up on your details. I have messaged "betty" with some advice on how to post replies to you - I think they may have forgotten their log in details.

Regards

Sarah

Hello Mervyn, According to the Tithe Applotment Books 1823-1837 Abraham Richmond was in cornadarra Lanesborough in 1829. His wife's name was Elizabeth.  They had several children. John born 1805, Abraham born 1807, Robert born 1811, Matilda born 1815, Elizabeth born1819, Anne born 1822, This Family is not directly connected to my wife's so I did not bother to follow it any further.
   In the 1901 Census there were 4 houses in Cornadarra 3of them were occupied by Richmonds & the other by Mortons. Richmond (Christian name ) Morton had married into the Richmond family.
                     Hope this finds you well.  BettyD ( Graham )
