This family of ORMSBY came from Lincolnshire. A pedigree of the family was
compiled by G.J.F. Fuller sometime in the 1800s. The first to settle in
Ireland was a Thomas, who was a younger son of a John.
Thomas married a granddaughter of Sir Nicholas Malby.
Their eldest son was Edmond, who married twice: first to Suzzanna Kelke, by
whom he had Edward, of Tobervadda in county Roscommon, Anthony, of Pusgallen
in county Roscommon, and Malby, of Cloghan, county Mayo. His second marriage
to Elizabeth Newman had issue, John, of Moyvola, county Galway, Philip, of
Annagh or Willowbrook, county Sligo, and Thomas, of Cummin, county Sligo.
The Willowbrook Ormsbys intermarried with the first families in the country:
the CROFTENS of Moate, the KINGS of Rockingham, the GORES of Lisadell and
Mayo, the FRENCHES of Frenchpark, and the WYNNES of Hazelwood, etc., etc.

> Can anyone help me trace my gran. She was born approx 1895, rumour had it
that she was born in Co. Clare but I am not sure about this. I know she
worked in Dublin and I reckon she must have left there when she was about 18
(1913) to come to England. I have a mystery on my hands because her mother
was a Minnie Hill who supposedly married a Duke Henry Ormsby, I say
supposedly because there is no record of her marriage and indeed the only
marriage of the said Duke Ormsby was to a Mary Ruane in 1895 which is the
year my grandmother was born. My grandmother's name was Violet Eileen
Ormsby. I would be so very grateful if somebody could help me, I need to
find her birth certificate so that I can prove who her parent's were and I
cannot find her birth in this country. Wendy in the UK
