comments : I have in my ancestry a woman named Elizabeth Courtenay Harris Close, the daughter of an Edward Harris and a Miss Courtenay. The references I have to Miss Courtenay say she is the daughter of the Earl of Devon and that she ran off with a sea captain (Edward Harris). Elizabeth Courtenay Harris Close was born in 1817 in England and died in 1885.

Any information that you might have would be helpful.

In most geneology books, there are two earls that are listed as having five and thirteen daughters.
I believe one of these may be the Miss Courtenay in my ancestry.
Thanks for your time. Pat McQueary

>comments : My great-great-great-grandfather James Courtenay married Nancy Agnes Kirkwood Jan.6,1821, Country Antrim Parrish,Donegore. They emmigrated to Upper Canada sometime between 1848 (the birth of their youngest child in Ireland) and Feb.1863 (the marriage of their only son, Israel, in Markham, Ontario). Israel was born in 1837, and he had four sisters. I am the great-grandaughter of Israel's daughter, Agnes Kirkwood Courtenay. I have the complete family history after their arrival in Upper Canada, but nothing much about the Irish connection. Were the original Courtenays Huegenots?
