De Courcy lines

Thanks to some assistance from members, I have been able to trace the de Courcy name back to 220. So much to look at . . . where do I start.It is amazing to find how the spelling of the surname varies.

Note: 1361, David Meagh of Buttavant held Kilbrin, Killaney, and Killinery. Killbrin alone was 12,631 acres. He was Sovereign { mayor} of Kinsale in 1379 and 1381. An ancient document of 1362 states that he was the son of Philip Meagh of Buttevant.

In 1341 Adam Meade [ Meagh] of Buttevant made grants of 19 Manors to various people. This document was still extant in 1898 bearing a seal with the coat of arms identical with the present Meade family. It is not known whether he was the brother or father of Philip Meagh.
Previous to this the Advowson of Liskeary was granted to the O'Mide or Meagh family. It remained in the Meade family untill 1502, when it was granted to Holy Trinity , Dublin, by James Meagh.
Edward MacLysaght in his "More Irish Families" [Irish Academic Press, 1982] says that from the begining of the 14thC. the Miaghs were amung the leading families of Co. Cork. and nearly all early references relate to Munster. He suggests that they were amung the early settlers in Co. Meath after the Anglo-Norman invasion. He thinks it is very unlikely that they came from Bristol to Cork, but rather the other way round and it was the Bristol Meade's who anglisised their name. Being rich landowners, merchants and shipowners they set up a branch office in Bristol to run their affairs!!! This has caused endless confusion with the old english words for green meadow and the resulting names of " atte Mede", "de Pratis", etc., depending on whether the document was written in Latin, Norman French or old English.

Beresford , Meade and de Courcy

Looking for relatives of Lord Charles de Poer Beresford - Irish- Admiral British Fleet.
Also looking for relatives of Thomas de Courcy Meade, came to Australia [Kilmore, Victoria] from Ireland around 1851.
Both of these people are related to me and I hope to find information lwhich will be a coomon link.
I have downloaded [thanks to modern technology] previous ancestors and can go back to 1315 with Meade, Beresford, around 1400 and some time ago went back with the de Courcy name [spelt in various ways] to when people did not have a christian name [somewhere around -250]. It took me a long time and now I cannot access that web link -the mormon site]
