In Reply to: Eyre in the Cornwall Invasion of Ireland by Barbara Eyre of 783

Hi Barbara,
I am decended from that line of Eyres that were part of the Cromwell invasion of Ireland. The two mwmbers of the Wiltshire family that were part of this force were John, who married Mary Bigoe, and was the first Eyre of Eyrecourt, which seems to have been influenced by wife Mary, and Edward, his younger brother. They were the sons of Giles of Brickworth.
There is a faily good account of the family in a book "Singpost to Eyrecourt" by Ida Gantz.
If I can help, let me know
Bruce
