†  A group of settlers to Bandon in 1620. were Puritans and were called the English Protestants.  They were principally from Taunton and Kingston in Somersetshire Co., England. Bennett suggests in his book "History of Bandon" that a group of Puritans left on the Mayflower. Among many, the English surnames include Castle, Flemming, and Kingston.

III.   Thomas Wolfe b. Abt 1800 m. Mary ?
IV.   James,  Wolfe b. Abt 1800 m. Mary ?
V,    William Wolfe b. Abt 1800 m. Mary ?
VI.   Richard Wolfe b. 1787,  occ. farmer Kivurra,  m   1821 at Kilmeen to Elizabeth Wolfe
         from  Caherkirky

The relationship between (II. IV, V AND VI) Thomas, James, William and John is purely speculative, it is not proven but possibly they are brothers or cousins.            A Richard Wolfe, buried at Kilmeen  Church, is also a possible connection. A branch of the family is at Ballygurteen and another at Caherkirky.. The townlands of Kilvuurra and Derreen are adjoining and Caherkirky is nearby.  According to Rebecca Wolfe (Ruby) Wolfe (b. May 04, 1913 Inchnattin d.1999), the family had farmed at Derreen for three hundred years.

In an e-mail message Barbara Clark   stated:
In the Kilmeen Parish records there are several Wolfe families  (who give their residence as  Kilvurra)  having children born  1814 to 1825.  They are  James Wolfe and Mary, John Wolfe and Mary,  Thomas Wolfe and Mary, William Wolfe and Mary.

Other Christenings for John/Jonathan and Eliza Castle in the Kilmeen register are ch Anne b 1840, Abigail, 1841, Anne b 1844, Susan, died as infant 1844, Susan b 1846, Thomas b 1848 Rossmore

Richard Wolfe  is buried in the Church of Ireland. graveyard at Kilmeen, appears to be the progenitor of the Kilmeen, Caherkirky and Kilvurra branch.

In 1819 a Rebecca Nash married Thomas FLEMING  [see MLB].  It is interesting to note that a Thomas Fleming was the immediate lessor of the land at Derreen on which the Wolfe family were tenant farmers.
