Does anyone have information about a father and son Alexander and John Torrance or Torrence? They were merchants in Limerick from the late 1700s-1820s. The son John became a bankrupt in 1809; his property which included a quayside on the Shannon was up for auction. In 1821 his wife Susanna nee Unthank died in a vicious attack made on the couple by Whiteboy agrarian agitators, two of whom were subsequently executed. I thought the Torrences were originally Scots, but I'm now not sure; the account of the attack on him says that he was "from another county" ie not a native of Limerick.
