Dad had a story of three brothers coming to Aughagreagh from Kildare, two of them passing without issue, and one of them having children, from whom all our line are descended.

From talking with Master Carthys family – both he and my father thought both families were one – they are from Sligo, I got the family tree he prepared before he died.

I doubted dads version, until I got this, a tithe record from 1823 – 1837 period.

Could these be the brothers from the Tree Houses Field? According to dad, there was a feild where the trraces of the ouses remained, but according to the man who has Aughagreagh today, he cant account for it. It was on Willie Cartys plot as far as I know.

This record is from 1823.
