This page is still being researched. It has NOT yet been launched formally into the Database but is shown here TEMPORARILY (albeit for an uncertain length of time pending further research), partly to record connections that we fear we might otherwise lose sight of and partly in the hope that one or more visitors to the site will contribute information that will enable us to develop our information on the families covered in this page to a standard that would support release of a dedicated page in the Database.

  ## TCB reports that one of the daughters "was ancestress of the families of Pryse and Loveden, later Pryse, by whom, in 1806, the greater part of the Llangorse estate was sold." BEB1841 identifies that it was Elizabeth, "(from whom) sprang Lewis Pryse, esq.who inherited the Gogerddan estate, and was father of Margaret Pryse, the wife of Edward Loveden Loveden, esq. of Buscot Park". It is not clear how Elizabeth (or possibly one of her sisters) was mother (possibly grandmother if she and a daughter were both teenage brides) of that Lewis Pryse (b 1716, d 1779, ## see here ##) given that ("John Lewis of Coedmor") shows that she married ...

BIFR1976 (Bence-Jones', p651) shows successive generations of Winthrops married to a Wrixon, first (in 1733) William to Alicia (dau of Robert) then (in 1757) their son Stephen to Katherine (dau of Yeamsns son of Henry of Glenfield). We speculate that they were connected as follows.

Christopher Russell (d 1729, Lt. Colonel)
BLG1886 ('Colthurst of Dripsey') identifies Elizabeth, (below) as dau of Col. Christopher Russell, Governor of Minorca, and great-granddau of _ Hook, Bishop of Worcester. Thanks to a contributor (PS, 18.05.15) for pointing out that Lt. Col. Christopher Russell (d 1729) was never Governor of Minorca (though it is possible that he was an Acting/Deputy Governor for a time) and that there was no Bishop Hook of Worcester. Thanks to PS again (03.06.24) for drawing our attention to the other connections shown below and noting that other sources also wrongly refer to Christopher as though he had been Governor of Minorca ("it is I suppose possible that Russell may briefly have been acting Governor of Fort St Philip in the absence of his Colonel"). He is also sometimes (wrongly) identifed as a full Colonel rather than a Lieutenant Colonel.
1. Elizabeth Russell (d 1775)
  m1. James Colthurst of Dripsey Castle, Sheriff of co. Cork (d 1757)
  m2. (07.08.1763) Joseph Oates of Kilnahone (Green Hall), Sheriff of Cork (d before 12.1780)
2. Katharine Dorothea Russell (d 1778)
  m. (1739) Hovell Farmar of Mount Hovell, co. Cork (b 1701, d 1770)
