Surnames: Wakefield
Where is the info for John and Mary?'s children from? Does this relate to the trees that have John Wakefield married to Mary Conley-that emigrated to America and back to Ireland? Info on earlier Wakefields I have found recently-Calendars for the State Papers relating to Ireland can be found at openlibrary.org. One very interesting petition by Thomas Wakefield can be found in the volume for the reigns of Henry VIII, Edward VI, Mary and Elizabeth. On page 469-1588 Jan 22-The petition of Thomas Wakefield to Burghley, for payment of . . . " The year is 1588-do you know for sure that John Wakefield was born in Ireland or do you think there is truth to ancestors were in Ireland since the Norman invasion?
In the Calendar for 1660-63, on page 163 you will find Thomas Wakefield-and you do list a Thomas Wakefield as a son and brother to John but he died in 1658 Ireland-where is this info from and where did he live or is this the alderman mentioned in the Wakefield Memorial and found in Burke's armory book? The entry for Thomas Wakefield-could be a son of Thomas? is in reference to Abstracts of forged recognizances and other deeds=listin of names underneath-maybe done using the Aldermans I.D.? Other Wakefields in this book are George-maybe your George son of JOhn? page 525 and on page 652 Henry Wakefield. Also in this book you could research about the Protestant Royalist, '49 Officers, and the Restoration Act 1660-Charles II and understand why John Wakefield is not a member of Cromwell's army and if he got a grant of land or understand some of why lands were lost that also is addressed in the previous book 1633-1647 and includes Ulster Plantation many say John Wakefield was part of and according to Wakefield Memorial the family estate was "lost?" and it "moved" to Aughrim, Galway Co. but most importantly Province of Connacht or Connaught-much history and some really contradicts what is written about and put in so many family trees. The Calendar for 1663-1665 still addresses the '49 Officers refer to pages 377-8 and 511-2 to see some of what it is about-the 1649 Officers.
