1 My objective from the onset when setting up this Savage Family website was to try and trace a direct link back to William Le Sauvage, one of many knights who accompanied De Courcey in the invasion of Co Down circa 1177.
I was determined to seek out documentation to substantiate my findings but soon learned that a mammoth task lay ahead of me as:
(a) Civil registration of all births, marriages and deaths in Ireland began in 1864 (except for non-catholic marriages, for which registration started in 1845).
(b) Most of these records were destroyed by fire when the Four Courts Building in Dublin where they were housed was shelled during the Irish Civil War.
(c) Most of Irelands census records prior to 1901 were also destroyed.
Despite this setback, my research remains an ongoing 'work-in-progress' though to date, I have only managed to go back as far as and confirm the existence of my great, great, great grandfather Rowland Savage circa 1800, so my storey starts here!

4 Quote from John Johnstone Savage.
My mother was given the nickname 'Tottie' at a very young age by her brothers as she was quite small when she was young. The name 'Tottie' stuck with her throughout her life although her diminutive size did not!
"TOTTIE" is possibly Scotch/Irish and means 'tiny'.

Joyce Tonkin was born at this address but her moves thereafter remain uncertain - it is assumed that Joyce was fostered out soon after birth?
