Any information on the Anthony Stoughton of Ballyhorgan, Lixnaw?
Is there a Church of Ireland Church still in Tralee? Is ThomasHerbert(d.1673) buried there?
I stayed at Cahernane (now a hotel) several years ago; I would love to know if any of the potraits there are of my ancestors. Are there any Herberts still left in Kerry? If so, I have Thomas Herbert's line in Wales going back to 1315 and would love to share what I have.
Also, I have a copy of 'Herbert Correspondence' that published many of the letters 1655-1673 between Lord Chirbury and Thomas Herbert. There are many
references to people, places, and it is indexed. If anyone is researching in this time frame, I will be happy to do any look ups.
