comments=My interest is in Robert Courtney, b. Abt 1752 in England; died 16 March 1840 in Ireland. Married Anna Wilson, she was born bet 1730-1767 in Scotland and died in Ireland.
Robert Courtney allegedly was sent by the King with a company of soliders (he was a Captain) to Ireland in 1785 to protect Protestants in Ireland. He met Anna there whose brother Dr Christopher Wilson was a Doctor in the same company as Robert. They married and remained in Ireland, they had five sons and two daughters. At least 2 sons went to America and 2 sons of another son came out to Australia.
Is this Robert related to the Courtenay family?
Is there anymore information regarding this Robert either in England or Ireland?
