Hello: Well, I know which part of me is Irish, the CRADY part, but I am a
in my search to find the origin of the WIMPSETT name. I can not yet find a
passenger list that show that name, but other documents show that the family
among the first Catholic colonists to St. Mary's County, Maryland, USA. I did
the name listed as being in England in the late 1500's and 1600's, but I have
find the origin or place of departure.
This is the first time I have been on your list. I tried the British list and
they are all
running around, looking for their own grandparents with very little sense of
I would also like to learn some Irish idiomatic expressions and I am doing some
research on that.
The Wimpsett family and the Cradys were all Catholics from my own grandfather
Wimpsett back to the early ones in Maryland.
