162. Elizabeth Semple-1208

From Marion Achurch - Sept. 1, 2001: Add******That Elizabeth was called Eliz. Semple not Christmas - which strengthens the idea that her parents did not marry. Eliz. should precede Thomas who was younger. The brothers Robert and Thomas are listed in IGI as Christmas/Semple so who knows which last name they officially had. Robert Meekins b.1797 d.1874 was Esq. of Glasthule House, Kingstown, Co. Dublin, Ireland. There is much to add here with the children of Eliz. and Robert Meekins.

174. Sheriff John Wallis-453

Obtained Drishane Castle as marriage settlement agreement with his father in 1787. Also, the property had the designation name of Westwood.

234. Anna Wallis-539

There is a dispute whether this Anna/Anne is a daughter of the Rev. Christmas Paul Wallis I or of Christmas Paul Wallis II.,

177. Henry Wallis-456

Will dated 1823

250. John Wallis-1012

The Drishane Parish Church registers record a burial of a John Wallis Esq. in 1830. Since Henry, who drowned, was buried here, then it is quite possible that this John is Henry's brother. He seems the only candidate.

William Frederik Duntzfeld-2886

member,Danish Government that framed the Danish Constitution

252. Eduard Duntzfeld-2887

No Children.

187. George Beresford Christmas-1295

From Lawrence "Larry" Christmas, Sept. 2001. I was shown the grave site of George Beresford Christmas yesterday morning in Copenhagen. He is buried there with his wife, Augusta Christine and daughter Malvine who was the widow of an admiral. He is important simply because his middle name links him to the Waterford Christmases.

From Susanne Christmas, Feb. 21, 2004: Malvine is not a daughter, but a sister-in-law.

Received from Robert Ørsted Jensen on Jan. 1, 2006

you may find this Danish census from 1801 interesting.
