Thanks for your very interesting email. Well, you are related to me (poor you). Your G.grandfather was my father's uncle. I don't know what that makes us!!
Interestingly I remember my grandfather's funeral in 1949. I was 4.5 years old and I remember trying to stop the undertakers bringing his coffin up the steps from the basement (122 Lower Baggot Street). I couldn't remember the year but now it is all clear to me.
The name Richard seems to be popular with the Tormey clan. One of my uncles was "Ritchie", other names in our family are John, Thomas, David, Pascal, and Gerry. By the way Pascal is the only relative left on my father's side. He must be about 75 now and he lives in Luton, Bedfordshire.
Any many thanks for all the information. I will do a bit more checking now that I have dates and places.
Your cuz Marie so many times removed.
