"Henry Essex Edgeworth was born in County Longford at Firmount, the ancestral home of the Edgeworths who had come from Middlesex, England during the reign of Elizabeth in 1582. In their house, Oliver Goldsmith had learned to read and write."
Fascinating account, John, encompassing as well Longford's famed Edgeworths. Does the famed writer Maria Edgeworth descend from this line, as well?
