While I am by no means certain that I am descended from the Hands family, it appears that my 4th great-grandmother was Elizabeth Hands, whose family had connections in Bunagara, Listowel, Co. Kerry. Elizabeth appears to have married my 4th great-grandfather Richard Hudson in the late 1780s and they had at least four children. The family lived in north Kerry, although one of their children, Mary, was baptised in Newport, Co. Tipperary (1797), so it is likely they lived in Tipperary for a time. For further information on the Hands family, please click on descendant list or narrative report.


We have no photos of the Hands family, but if you have any photo(s) of descendants of Elizabeth and Richard that you would like to share, I would be delighted to hear from you. Please email any pictures at HelensFamilyTrees@gmail.com. Many thanks in advance.
