Sammy, I was able to go back to 1508 with my namesake. On my mother's, quite interesting to say the least. Aside from the hanging of the 1768 relative, I also learned that another member of my mother's family was active during the Irish Rebellion. He was a Commander in the Royal Irish Constabulary and headed a unit called the Tudor Tigers, an Intelligence squad, whose mission was to hunt down and kill members of the IRA. Specifically, IRA leaders in Dublin during the Easter Rebellion and they said of him- freewheeling attitude to legality since he found it necessary to be handier with his gun than the gunmen with theirs. I said wow, you couldn't make this stuff up.
