G Boyle's Genealogy

Descendants and relatives of Thomas and Henry Boyle,; and Sir Richard Boyle, First Earl of Cork

RELATED LINES OF DESCENT

ANCESTOR FAN OF MY PATERNAL GRANDFATHER

In addition to the BOYLE line of direct descent, I also have information about other ancestors, but only a few have been assigned an AID prefix because I have little or no information about people of that surname.  I will walk through the ancestor fan at left, one ancestor at a time.

Henry BOYLE - I am certain that Henry Boyle is my ancestor. as he is my great-great-great grand-father, and I have visited his grave often.  

William BOYLE - We speculate that Thomas' and Henry's father's name was William.  We have found evidence of a William Boyle and Sophie Davies who lived in Co Cork and had a family at the correct time.  But we have little evidence that he is my ancestor.  That question is discussed in several issues of the BOYLE BULLetin.  Nevertheless, to avoid assigning one prefix for Henry and another for his older brother Thomas, I have assigned the AID prefix {Bo-} to their (presumed) father William Boyle.

Sophie DAVIES - We have no information about her family.  We can assume her father was a Mr Davies.  All of her presumed descendants and relatives are also descendants of Thomas and Henry Boyle, so no AID prefix has been assigned for the Davies surname at this time.  If I learn more about Sophie's family, I would assign an AID prefix to her father.

Martha READE - We have no information about her family.  We can assume her father was a Mr Reade.  All of her known descendants and relatives are also descendants of Henry Boyle, so no AID prefix has been assigned for the Reade surname at this time.

George RILEY - We have extensive information about this family, and have assigned and AID prefix {Ri-}.

Elizabeth HIGGISON - I have a very small amount of information about her family, apart from her Riley relatives; enough to warrant the assignment of an AID prefix {Hi-}.  Due to the small amount of independant information available for the Higgison family, I have presented these two families (Riley and Higgison) together.

Joseph DAVIS - I have a significant amount of data on his descendants, and there is much more available in a copy-righted family tree.  I have assigned him the AID prefix {Da-}.

Catherine BELL - I have no information about her parents or siblings.  I have therefore not assigned a prefix.

Sarah BOLTON - I have no information about her parents or siblings.  I have therefore not assigned a prefix.

IN SUMMARY - If you find the above discussion confusing, I suggest you read the page 'About AIDs and Founding Fathers'.  I have been able to collect only three family trees of any significant size among the sixteen possibilities: Boyle {Bo-}; Riley {Ri-}; and Davis {Da-}.  I have a small amount of information on the Higgison family {Hi-}.
