the Graham family
« on: Monday 16 December 19 23:08 GMT (UK) »
The Grahams of South Wicklow and North Wexford. My research suggests that our founding father was one of the Border Scots from the Roscommon Plantation of 1606 brought to work on the plantation of Sir George Graham in South Wicklow. I am looking for assistance to find the Grahams of 1610-1750 in the area. My Border Scot DNA supports my theory.

Andrew have you researched the 1641 Deposition papers at TCD,  also available online at; http://1641.tcd.ie/index.php The 1641 Depositions (Trinity College Dublin, MSS 809-841) are witness testimonies mainly by Protestants, but also by some Catholics, from all social backgrounds, concerning their experiences of the 1641 Irish rebellion. The testimonies document the loss of goods, military activity, and the alleged crimes committed by the Irish insurgents, including assault, stripping, imprisonment and murder.
