- [pam garrett's comment] Over my years of research I have looked at several Mathews individuals and families that I thought might lead to the Ancestors of Catherine Mathews, wife of John Markham. My notes have become so unwieldy that I have felt need of entering these people, individually, into my database. I became interested in John Mathews and his wife Margaret Mathews of Francis Street because they were living in Dublin in the mid 1600's. John Mathews (Mathewes) was styled as a gentleman and he was serving as "Quartermaster" at the time of his death in 1660. I have not been able to learn much about him, but he continues to be of interest to me! I suspect that John Mathews of Francis Street, 1715, might be his son or grandson.
