* Possible Scenario: James L'Estrange born in 1800, married Bridget Colgan, probably circa 1828. Child Thomas born (in Cloghan) c.1829, Martin born 1838, James born 1840, Mary born 1842 and Joseph born 1845.

Bridget died 1874 at Loghan, Lusmagh and husband James died also at Ashgrove in 1876: both buried in local RC churchyard.

On the death of his father (ie James), eldest son Thomas inherits the farm at Ashgrove. In 1868, Thomas married Mary Josephine Donohoe. Their first child was born in 1869. Thomas's tenth child, born in 1880, is named for his father, James.

Mary L'Estrange married a Mr Kearns of Ferbane who was on the County Council.

Note: Year of birth of children Martin, James and Mary L'Estrange extracted from Reynagh RC Parish Baptismal Records. Parents given as James L'Estrange and Brigid Colgan.

No record traced of baptism of children Thomas and Joseph.
