    Notes 
    • Note: History of the Town and County of Wexford: From the Earliest Period to the Rebellion of 1798, Comprised Principally from Ancient Records and the State Papers in the Public Record Offices of London and Dublin, the Mss. in the British Museum, and the Universities of Oxford, Cambridge, and Dublin, Volume 4 By Herbert Francis Hore page 446 History of Bannow details the following:

      "hie lacet Johanes Clolfer qui obiit ....... Anna Siggen que obiit ... quorn animab ppicietue deus amen"

      It is unfortunate that the obliterated portion held the date; this part would probably also have stated that Anna was the wife of John. Dr Graves tells us that there are, as he is informed, about thirty heads of families in the Parish of Bannow who still bear the name of Culfer, and scarcely one in any other part of the country. But though there is no one of the name Siggin in the Parish there are a few of that name in the Barony of Forth, and also a Sigginstown and Sigginshaggard occur in the neighbourhood of Taghmon.

      footnote Thos. "Sygens of Sygeneston" in the Barony of Forth, one of them was Collector of the subsidy (granted by Parliament 17 April, 33 Hen. VIII. (1542 - Suzanne St. John? - could this be this man: http:/​/​stjohngenealogy​.com/​getperson​.php?personID=I11609&tree=OSA0001?) in that barony, jointly with Jasper Cod of Carne. - P.H. (note by Suzanne St. John 26 May 2018: Eva St. John married Roger Carne of Sully circa 1480-1580) daughter of William St. John, Esq of Highlight (Generation 15 of my book The St. John Genealogy Origin and Ancestry Volume 1), Glamorgan, Wales and Florence ferch Gwilym)

      Suzanne St. John states 26 May 2018:
      Author failed to understand:

      Sygens and Siggins = St. John
      Sygeneston and Sigginstown = St. Johnstown

      Thus Anna St. John m. John Culfer but we have no date.
