Thank you very much for getting back to me .Yes I'm probably  a bit  on the wrong post as I have no genealogy information, sorry. However the Veigheys I was told had responsibilities for the game and  woodlands  as Gamekeeper, for Lord Farnham  in Dunaweel, which interests me. Maybe this is not what you know, or he possibly had lots of other duties depending on the season.

Laheen,

Donít worry about the genealogy information, however I am interested in the information that you may have on my Veighey family. James my grandfather was a gamekeeper and was responsible for the woodland area. My father used to talk about Lord Farnham a lot, the cottage was like a grace and favour cottage that came with the job. I have a photo of the family home when when my Dad was young.
Any information you may have would be useful.
Look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you. The wood was not sold until 1958 to the forestry. I'm limited by only having what we remember of my late father-in-laws tales . He died in 2014. He was a contemporary of Ida I believe , certainly talked about her.

Hi Laheen,
You have me really intrigued now.
Aunt Ida passed away in January 2019, the last of my Dadís siblings.
My Dad used to tell me a lot of tales Dunaweel.
As you have posted 3 times now you can use the private message system.
Iíll send you a private message soon.
Thanks for your interest, family history research goes in phases, itís goes quiet then someone joins and it starts the thread again.
