I am sorry  I am late in getting my name in this project and hope I still can.I do have ancestors from Galway City  in the early 1800's according to a death certificate of my great great Uncle Walter Ford. His sister Bridget is my 2nd great grandmother and their parents were Patrick Ford and Honora Jordan. Patrick Ford was a flax grower  and is listed in the Fax List of 1796 . I was in Ireland in 2007 and found that information at the National Archives in Dublin.  

I do not know what parish they were from other than Galway City.

Thank you very much and have a great day.

  • Hi There

     

    Many thanks for your email. Ford or Forde is a common surname in Co Galway. Do you have any additional information on the Fords?

    Looking forward to hearing from you.
