The Enoch series part 3: The immediate family of Enoch Fitzhenry

This list of names and dates has been complied by Mrs Hodge and others from contemporaneous sources and the Bibles mentioned in the second post.
Some of the names and dates are different to those previously published in other forums.
As before Mrs Hodges' text is in purple and mine is in italics

First generation
Birth: 19 May, 1752, Ireland

(Misc. Notes: "Abigail was a Tory, the Judge (Louis FitzHenry) told me", writes Kathryn. Other family records state this also.)
This is an interesting statement as Tory is very much an Irish word, meaning cow-thief or highwayman. It was (and still is) used as a shorthand for the Conservative party of Britain. The British Tories in the 19th century tended to be monarchist, Protestant, supporting the landed gentry and opposing home rule for Ireland. The American meaning of Tory at the time of the War of Independence meant much the same thing - a supporter of British rule and loyal to the Crown. But Enoch had fought against the British in the War of Independence, so Abigail was sticking her neck out to hold such views.
