In Reply to: Busteeds of Mount Long, Co. Cork by George R. Zepp of 37

My Husband is a descendent from a John Busteed, MD, who's family settled in Tralee.
I was sent a document that puts all Irish Busteeds in one County.
I received the following from a County Cork Busteed descendent:
              The Account of the Family of the Busteeds
Taken from Giles Busteed at Killingly, grandson of old John Busteed, aged 74 years, by William Busteed of the City of Cork, March 3, 1728/29.

Old John Busteed came over from Tukesbury, a corporation town in Gloucester Shire, with his family, between the Sovereign's Rocks into the Habour of Oyster Haven near Kinsale some time before the Rebellion of Forty one [1641] and inhabited at Gorlmalire [Gortmolire] on the Black Water side near Mallow where had a copyhold. He brought over with him Five Sons & Two Daughters. The names of said sons was Giles, [Richard, William twins], John & Thomas. The names of said daughters he does not remember but that the oldest was married to Mr. Philip Paynes of Mallow & the other to Mr. John Brooks of Mallow.

Giles, the eldest son of old John Busteed, purchased Mountlong of a Serjeant & eight Soldiers of Oliver Cromwell's Army.
William settled at Ballyororun in Tramekelly[sp?] afterwards removed to Black Water.
Richard settled at Ballynure near Black Rock.
John settled at Killingly, and
Thomas died young.
