|I'm trying to help my relatives trace their Irish ancestors. Their grandfather was Angus Charles Marjoribanks Maitland
He married a Mary Bridgid O'Callaghan in 1923. She was born 1902 in Ballina County Mayo and died 1946 buried Prestin Rd cemetery Yeovil.
It's believed that her parents were Thomas OíCallaghan (d 1927) and Elizabeth Poe, the daughter or Sir William Poe and Mary Cosby of Stradbally Hall. It's also believed that Mary Cosby's mother was a Brodie.
Only problem is that I can't find any Poes that married a Crosby from Stradbally Hall, who are pretty well documented on the Peerage. In fact, the only Sir William Poe I can find is Lt.-Col. Sir William Hutchison-PoŽ, 1st Bt and he married Mary Adelaide Domville:
Just wondered if anyone has any ideas about how I might solve this mystery.
Best and cheers
