John Irish (Irishe later the "E" was dropped) was born around 1500 and died about 1531, he married Ann Middleton, daughter of William Middletion, of Stokeld, Dorestshire. He was High Sheriff of Dorsetshire in the 22nd year of the reign of henry VIII(1531). Thus he served in the public service of England. Charles Irishe bor about 1525; married in 1545, Eleanor Mallor, daughter of Sir William Mallory of Malpas, Chestershire.
Johnathan Irishe, of Ireys, born about 1560, married Elizabeth Kirby, daughter of Gilbert Kirby of Gillcross. This Jonathan is the direct ancestor of the John Irish, whos came to Plymouth, Massachusetts in 1629 and the James Irish who came to Gorham, Maine in 1710.

John Irish, born about 1600 in the parish of Clisdon, County of Somerset, England; died in 1677. He married Elizabeth Risley, who died August 28, 1687. John was the first of the family in America. He came to Plymouth with John Bradford, the son of the Governor of Plymouth Colony, William Bradford. he was of considerable note in Duxbury, as a surveyor of lands. He left much property in Seaconnet, Rhode Island. He was a volunteer for the Pequot War (1633 - 1637). They had two sons, John and Elias.

William Irishe, brother of this "JOHN", of Ireys, married in 1639 Bella Ponsonby, daughter of Sir Henry Ponsonby, and ancestor of the Earl of Bisborough, and left five children, the eldest son was George.

George Irish, who was the Royal Army and who ruled over England 1625 - 1649, accompanied King Charles II to the low countries. he married Elizabeth Musgrave, daughter of Sir William Musgrave of Cookdale.

James Irish, of Ireys wa sheriff of Dorsetshire in 1723. He married Beatrice Poole, daughter of Edward Poole Esq. of York. Their son James Irish cam to America in 1710, and married Elizabeth -- See the Book "Descendants of James Irish, 1710- 1740" by Jennie J. Wight Howes.

John Irish Jr. was born in Duxbury, Massachusetts in 1641. By this time his father John Irish Sr. had acquired by tradem the former home of William Hiller located on what is now known as the King's Highway, with the garden and fruit thereon.
In 1671 John Irish Jr's name is mentioned as siding in the Town of Middleboro, Massachusetts, but at this time MIddleboro and Taunton were the one and the same town. His brother Elias, resided in Taunton.

The early ancestors of the Irish family are believed to be French (Norman), the name originally being D'Ireys. The family moved to Germany, where the "D" was dropped, leaving the name Ireys. Durning the German wars, about the year 900, the Ireys family moved to England. The family was living in England before the Norman conquest by William the Conqueror in 1066, where they had long established themselves at Ireys, their family seat, in Dorset County, England. The mae was changed to Iryshe, and one of the members of the family became Sheriff of London, holding that office for nine years.

Thank you for this wonderful information.

Previous to today all I had was a Jonathan Irish married Elizabeth Kirby and they had a son named John (the older) Irish who married Elizabeth Risely. They had John (the younger) Irish born in 1641 who married Elizabeth Thurston . . . they had Content Irish born 1691 who married Joseph Lawton and had Rebecka Lawton born 1715.

There are 2 John's and one Jonathan Irish. For clarity who were Johnathan's parents/grandparents/etc? Can any one fill in anymore dates other than the ones I mentioned above? and does anyone have any information on Elizabeth Thurston? when she was born/died who her parents were?

Thank you very much,

John T. Irish

Donna, my father in law was John Thomas Irish (he's now deceased) and I remember him saying something about Ireys, England, at one time. Don't know if it's the same line or not. He had a brother Gordan Irish who lived in Michigan and my father in law was from Seattle - but born and raise in Michigan. I have a picture somewhere that lists his aunts, uncles, etc. Does this help?
