Hello,
Just saw your posting. Any other information on Seavers? I am researching Seavers in North County Dublin from mid 1750's to mid 1850's.(Also Dollards and Lockes)
Thanks,
Gaye

I have no other information on the Seavers, Dollards, or Lockes. However, a Seaver reunion was held at Malahide Castle (County Dublin) in July 2002. Have you contacted the Skerries Historical Society? Their e-mail address is on their website. Another good source is the Fingals Heritage Group.

My interest in Skerries concerns the Halpin, Farrell, and Magee lines.

Hello!
Thanks for your prompt reply. I have contacted Fingal Heritage Group and they found some records for me some years back. I am also in contact with the Skerries Historical Society and they have been a great help. I was at the Seaver reunion in July and it was very good! Also did a lot of researchin Dublin then. Your name is certainly one that comes up a lot in the area! I wish I could be of some help with your names, but I can't. I guess you have tried this already, but do you know of a book called "The 1798 Rebellion in Fingal" by Peadar Bates? I may have told you about this in an earlier posting - can't remember, sorry. But it's excellent for Fingal family research - all our names are in there! I have an address to get a copy if you are unable to get it. Thanks again.

Thanks for your tip about Peadar Bates' book. I found a copy of it at the Library of Congress -- it included the name of one of my ancestors who was a member of the United Irishmen.

I've found that some of the Skerries families were connected by marriage after they emigrated. So, some of those connections are still to be discovered.

Hi, Gaye,
I'm doing a study on UI in the US, but at present, haven't found anything from Fingal. Could you tell me where to buy the book you recommend? Thanks

My grandfather came from Ireland when he was 17 years old. He settled in Phila. Pa. and later was a ship's engineer in the the Merchant Marines. I do not know where he was born in Ireland or of his dad and mom. Hope for news Pat Smith

Most likely it was Fingal (lusk) area. Alot of the crop came from that area. Godspeed!
