@hallmark

This looks incredibly promising! Thanks for digging up the wills.
Where did you find them? I'd love to try and get a higher quality scan if I can

The first tree definitely contains my ancestors. :)

Any idea how the two trees relate? If I could link them, I'd be able to assert that my Stratfords were related to the Stratford-Aldboroughs at Baltinglass, which have a lot of other researchers investigating them!

On Nick reddan's site you have the likes of Benjamin O'Neal   Earl of ALDBOROUGH   as administrator of estate of Martha Stratford, his said wife in 1817, so one would need to check what that Will contains at The Registry of Will and Deeds in Dublin!

There may have been a Marriage Agreement registered too!!

Plus the stuff at NLI on the link I posted....

I went to the NLI, unfortunately a lot of the interesting docs are stored up in Belfast, so I will have to organize a trip up there.

One other thing of interest is the crest on the graves at Drumlummon, they're definitely Stratford from their design - but I was not able to find any registration of arms. Have been trying to compare them to the other Stratford crests around but with little success
