I have only recently started to research my Tormey ancestors. My grandfather James Tormey was born in Dun Laoghaire (then Kingstown)in 1893 and I believe he is the brother of Eleanor Tormey. My mother remembers her and also that she had a son Robert who moved to London. My grandfather, James was the son of Thomas Joseph Tormey and Anne (nee Hemp). Thomas Joseph was born in Dun laoghaire (then Kingstown) in 1864. His father was Thomas Tormey and his mother Margaret (nee Ballance). I can't find a birth or baptism cert for this Thomas in south county Dublin and I believe he came to Dun Laoghaire from Meath or Westmeath. His father's name was also Thomas and his mothers name was Mary Merrin. I would appreciate it if anyone else has information about these people.
