I have this book, "Irish-American Trade, 1660-1783" with an Index Nominum (index of names) and can do lookups on request.

Pretty much all of this book is also available on Google Books (on the internet).

Can you please look up Samuel Holmes for me. It would be before 1780 as he left Ireland at that time. Thank you. His father could be John if there is anything in that area for a John Holmes I'd appreciate it. Thanks. Good site. sorry not more used.

I wish I had better news for you, but there is no Holmes in the book's Index at all.

I also looked in the Original Hotten's Lists, and while there is an entry for a Samuel and about four for a John Holmes, but they are all between 1635 and 1678, and in reference to persons leaving England for Virginia (USA).

The "Omitted Chapters" addendum book of Hotten's Lists has no Index entry for either Christian name under Holmes.

Most of the reference books I have deal with records in the Caribbean, mainly Barbados, so there's nothing more I can add.
