c1750Robert Williamson married Mary ....He Rossmore, widow emigrated to CanadaHello Rosemary et al. We share the Williamson connection, I am very sure. My line came to Canada in the 1830’s from Rossmore. Robert Williamson , 3rd great grandfather had died, but his widow Mary and 7 grown children immigrated. M y2nd gr. grandfather was Richard Williamson b c 1800. There was a second Richard Williamson in the Ontario area identified as a cousin. I do believe this is from the Brahalish line. I have seen a photograph of a Robert Williamson , police man of Rochester NY who bears a strong resemblance to a great aunt of mine. my email is marlier at iCloud dot com if you are interested in further yarning.

Copy of Will of Richard Roycroft (Obliterated in the Destruction of the Public Record Office, Dublin, 1922 but copied by William Henry Welply) of Clouney (Clonee, Bog Road), Parish of Durrus, agd 9th May 1801, Proved 1st August 1801, Son-in-law, George Swanton, Grandson Richard Lavers (Levis), granddaughter, Avis Notter, son Thomas Roycroft deceased, daughter Grace O’Sullivan. Executors George Swanton, Richard Lavers (Levis). Witnesses: Robert Lavers. Charles Dalton, John Vickery.

The Swantons referred to probably came from ‘over the hill’ from Gortnagrough, Ballydehob. The Notters wee originally German Protestants who settled in Crookhaven c 1630. There were various Vickery families in the vicinity one across the Durrus River in Ballycomane others in neighbouring townlands. Various Sullivan families were around, intermarried with the Vickeries. There are a number of references to Roycroft families in the Bantry Estate Rent books for neighbouring townlands.
