Our Hudson family can be traced back to William Hudson, born in Co. Kerry in the early 18th century. Apparently William’s ancestors had come to Kerry from England in the 16th century having been granted land in the county. William had three sons that we know of, Richard, Edward and a third who may have been named William. All three were probably born in Bunagara, Listowel, Co. Kerry.
The Hudsons pictured below are descendants of Richard Hudson (born around the 1780s) who was a grandson of the elder William above and son of William(?) above. Richard and his wife, Margaret Finucane, lived in Duagh, Co. Kerry after their marriage, eventually settling in Kilbaha, Newtownsandes, Co. Kerry shortly after their youngest child was born. They had eight children, six of whom emigrated to the United States.
