The goal of this project is to identify, create/update all profiles involved in the Wicklow United Irishmen 1797 - 1804.

The original goal of this project was to connect Anne Devlin and some of the Wicklow United Irishmen 1797 - 1804. Three of Anne’s cousins, ‘Big’ Arthur Devlin, Hugh ‘Vesty’ Byrne and the legendary Michael Dwyer, were leaders of the Wicklow United Irishmen.[1]


Here is the genealogy twister I found. See if I got it right

Michael Dwyers mother was the second daughter of Charles Byrne of Cullentra, the first daughter having married Hugh Vesty Byrne's father and the third, Winifred, married Arthur Devlin's uncle, Bryan Devlin. Thus Michael Dwyers, Hugh Vesty and Arthur Devlin were first cousins of Bryan Devlin's children, Michael and Hugh Vesty were first cousins but Big Arthur Devlin relationship to these two was that of a first cousin's first cousin.
