Hi Teresa, an ADDENDUM: Back in the 1960's, Maurice SEXTON, of Palmerston North, descendent from Thomas SEXTON/Harriet SWABEY, told me after his journey to Ireland that he had actually traced the Co.Clare SEXTONS back to Co.Wick - from where, apparently, one Cromwell had moved the whole population to Co.Clare for refusing to change from Catholic to Church of Ireland (Anglican). Maurice gave me some photos & a little info (as above) but then died before providing the complete details & as far as possible corroboration. Kind regards, Joe (ka949)

Joe, just picked up up your mail now hmmm....interesting info. We were always told that we were displaced from Limerick by the same Cromwell. i dont have a Harriet Swabey in my line, however I do have a Thomas Sexton.
