Thank you for the information about the Gilsenans in Howth. I did not know of this family. The Gilsenan sure like to live by the sea-side as they stayed along the east coast of Ireland.
Your Rickards are mentioned to be in Howth, mostly smugglers and Pirates when the odd ship wreck occured.
Thanks for the information. By the way I am returning back to Ireland after 17 years in the Far East and South China Seas.
