hi there - am hoping someone can help a bit here - i have just come across some old info my brother has sent to me re our lineage. this info is from the national trust -rowallane house, saintfield, ballynahinch northern ireland region - adminstrator at the time was chris corry-thomas.
he notes that sir william cole died in 1653, was succeeded by g/son sir michael cole who married 1st cousin elizabeth dau of sir john cole 2nd son of old sir william (am not sure if this is the sir william noted dying 1653). sir michael had to flee to england in 1688- now this is the bit that is a bit hazy for me- notes say he lived in castle in enniskillen till 1711 when he died - but dont know when he returned - my direct lineage i believe comes from a child born while he was in england - how do i find this out? any hints - ?? been going in circles ... thanks for any help.
