We are seeking information about the family of Ralph James of Urelands, Co. Wicklow. We believe he married Lettice Astle of Ardristan Co. Carlow on Sept 1, 175(3?) and had descendants. The family name appears to change to James-Hope at some time because there is a Ralph James Hope listed on the subscribers list to the Lewis Topographical Dictionary (1837): Hope, Ralph James Esq. J.P. Urelands, near Carnew, Co. Wicklow. In addition, the obituary for William Astle Hope in 1863 indicates that he is the son of the late Ralph James Hope JP of Urelands, Co Wicklow. This change of family name from “James” to “James-Hope” fits with information we have available regarding our family tree. Does anyone have further information about this family? Lots of information to share if we connect.
