John King versus Edward King

+3 votes
I found something that states that Reverend Edward King was the brother of Sir John King, but they were born from towns over 100 miles apart.  This could explain why one was Anglican Bishop at Kilmore House of Elphin, Roscommojn, Ireland while Sir John King was landowner at Boyle Abbey, Roscommon, Ireland.  Father was Thomasees King, born about 1550s in Magdalen Laver, England.

Congratulations John!
It does help explain better who my ancestors were before coming to America.  It is very strange that these two Kings from miles apart in England settled just a few miles from one another in Ireland.
