Families covered: Fuller of Glashnacree, Fuller (Fuller-Harnett) of Leemount

(1) We redid this page following review using MGH (NS4, vol 3) at which time we attempted to reduce the confusion caused by the pedigree introduced by MGH (vol 1) by moving what used to be the lower section on this page to be the lower section on Fuller04.
(2) BLGI1912 reports that "This family was one of great respectability and opulence in the co. Kerry, possessing property in the neighbourhood of Dingle, the Samphires, Ballybunnion, &c., long before the English settlers, under the "Plantation Scheme", established themselves in the locality."
(3) MGH (NS4, vol 3) starts with the unnamed father of Thomas & Samuel who is identified as possibly father also of Richard.
