  2. I am interested in the Melvin Family. Andrew Melvin, my ggg was a farmer at Knockmore. His son, my gggrandfather moved to Birmingham as a labourer and his son,my grandfather, John Melvin, was a successful businessman. His son, my great uncle, Sir Martin Melvin,Bart, was owned the Universe paper and was involved in the Irish scout movement. He was a good friend of WT Cosgrave.
    I would be interested to know more about the Melvin's in this part of Mayo. Many thanks Justin Melvin Downes
