Hello to Harvey Family researchers,

My name is Barbara Harvey (Becker) and I was born in Australia in 1958 but I now live in West Cork Ireland. My father Roy Harvey (deceased) was an avid historian and did extensive research into the Harvey family in Wexford (Bargy Castle) and our family's connections with them. Robery Harvey of Kyle Wexford wrote an extensive book about the Harvey family history and sold 3 copies to my family in Australia. As I am the youngest of 5 children I was not a recipient of the book and now that I live in Ireland I don't think I will ever get a look at them. I have done a rough tree back to 1685 but I would like to make contact with anyone who has research on the Harvey (Bargy) family. Hope to hear from you soon, regards Barbara

    Hi Barbara:


    Thanks for your message to the message board.  I did a quick search and this newspaper article came up:


    I would recommend that you try to make contact with the Wexford Local Historical Society who may be able to source a book for you.  Their website address is:

    They print a journal which may also be of use to you with your research.

    The very best of luck.

    Stay safe.


    All the best,



    Jane Halloran Ryan
