  1. Hi Neil,
    I note your comprehensive research on the Moxham and longford history . My ancestors were Thomas Fitzgerald of Moyvore who’s father was killed by a kick from a horse between 1770 and 1790.They subsequently moved and leased land from Barbazon in Roscommon through a land agent called Malone. I cannot get details or any trace of them being in the Moyvore area
    In your research have you encountered Fitzgerald lease holders or reference to Malone or indeed Brabazon? any clues or leads greatly appreciated,

    James Fitzgerald

    • Hello James,
      Off the top of my head the only name that rings a bell is Brabazon, as there was a family of that name in the Ballynacargy area in times past. I will keep an eye out for the other names and let you know if I find anything. Have you tried the National Archives for any surviving lease documents?
