I was just playing with the idea of researching the family name when I came across this message board. What luck! My mother's maiden name is Anne Twamley. We are from Baltinglass, Co. Wicklow. I live in the US and had thought it would be nice to do some research for her. My grandfather was Henry Twamley. His brother, John, emigrated to the US in the 1930s and his name was changed to "Twombly. " (I don't think we're related to the famous Cy...).
Interesting that there are so any Twamleys in the US.
Interested to hear from anyone who may have or think I can help them find info. on the ancestors.
