Hello Lewis

For some 'unknown' reason I have only just noticed this message!! I am descended from Elizabeth Ruddock who was born in Portadown (?) County Armagh on 12 Aug 1845 and married William Henry Maginness in Christchurch, New Zealand (b 3 Oct 1846 also I think in Portadown, Co. Armagh). I believe Elizabeth's parents were William Ruddock (1814 - 1879?)) and Elizabeth Hare. William's father was Laurence Ruddock and his mother was Anne? I would love to know more about the Ruddocks. Thank you for your reply and my apologies for my tardiness.

Dear Julie:

No apology necessary.

I am yDNA related to a descendant of Laurence (Lawrence) Ruddock in this case Ernest Ruddock born 17 Mar 1934 in Annaghanoon, Co. Armagh, Ireland, the son of George Ruddock and Annie Holmes Ruddock. George was born Grange Lower, Co. Armagh on 01 Nov 1882. George was the son of James Ruddock, born Ruddock's Hill, Grange Lower, Co. Armagh, Ireland in 1845. James Ruddock was the son of Laurence Ruddock b. 01 Oct 1809 and Mary (no further information). There are believed to be two more Laurence Ruddock one of whom was married to an Anne then a Lawrence Ruddock born about 1713 who was married to Rebeka Shelly on 04 May 1733 in Co. Meath, Ireland. This was a Quaker wedding. Sometime close to the birth of this Lawrence Ruddock my 5th great grandfather William Ruddock departed The Diamond, Grange Lower, for Penn's colony. He is found there near today's Gettysburg in the Manor of Maske purchasing 300 acres in 1735. I do not know who was the father of my William. He married Alice (surname unknown) possibly before departing to Pennsylvania. The father of the Lawrence Ruddock born about 1713 was John Ruddock who was from Co. Carlow. I am also yDNA related to Ruddocks who are from Carlow town, Co. Carlow and to a Ruddock family from Bunclody (Newtownbarry), Co. Wexford. The later immigrated to Australia in the 1850s settling in Victoria and Tasmania. You may email me directly lruddick (at) ix.netcom.com

Dear Julie:
In September I journeyed to Co. Armagh where I meet Ernest and family as well as Robert "Bobby" Ruddock. Robert was tested and is my yDNA match and of course matches Ernest as well. Have you had the opportunity to look over what I provided you above and have you found any links that you can share?
