I just found the Betham abstract of the will of Anthony Sharp in FHL #595945, Volume 64. The abstract reads as follows:

Anthony Sharp of Roundwood, Queens County, Esq., dated 7 Oct 1775, proven 19 Dec 1781. Wife Catherine daughter and only child Frances Flood Robert Anthony Flood eldest son of same and shall take the name of Sharp Luke second son of Frances Luke Flood of Roundwood Queens County Esq., husband of daughter Frances Catherine eldest daughter of Frances Granddaughter Grace, second daughter of daughter Frances Cousin Thomas Sharp of Newton Creek, County Gloucester Granddaughter Jane, fourth daughter of daughter Frances Flood Frances, third daughter of daughter Frances Flood sister Rachel Delany, once Sharp Granddaughter Frances White Rev Savell Stubber married to above mentioned granddaughter Catherine Flood.

From this information, the name of the last child of Luke Flood and Frances Sharp that I could not decipher in the Flood family tree prepared by Sir William Betham must be Jane.

So the children of Luke Flood and Frances Sharp are:

Robert Anthony Flood Sharp, who married Miss Horan, September 1783
Luke Flood
Catherine Flood, who married Savell (Sewell?) Stubber, 16 Nov 1779
Grace Flood
Frances Flood, who married Mr. White
Jane Flood, who married Andrew Graves, 27 April 1786

The wording of the abstract is somewhat strange. The will was dated 7 Oct 1775, but Stubber marriage did not occur until 1779. So perhaps the information was added later, which would account for Catherine being mentioned first, then her husband added much later. Something similar might have happened with Frances, who is mentioned twice - first as Frances Flood, then as Frances White.

It does not appear that a Flood daughter (only Grace remains unaccounted for) married William Palmer in 1772,
since that would have made it into Anthony's will.

I am researching a relative named Thomas Sharp Gale, born about 1796, whose father was Thomas Gale of Valleyfield, Queens County Ireland. I am operating under the theory that Thomas Gale married a descendant of Dublin Quaker Anthony Sharp to account for the family name Sharp in Thomas Sharp Gale's name. Perhaps it is Grace Flood.
