James Bible, Kilfinane

Hello!

I'm trying to trace a James Bible, in the Kilfinane area of east Limerick, in the mid-eighteenth century. He was first cousin to a John Howard, whose home in Kinsale had burnt down, and who moved to Kilfinane at James Bible's invitation. The daughter of this John Howard married a Robert Joyce, and as she was born (to the best of my knowledge) about 1760, that probably puts John Howard's birth year at about 1735. Since his cousin is referred to as "old James Bible", that might well push his birth back into the 1720s at least. I know that there's a post here already regarding a Bible family in Kilfinane, and it even includes a James, but since he was born c. 1795, I need to go back two or even three generations earlier. Pushing my luck, I suspect, but worth asking the question nonetheless, I hope.
