In Reply to: Gorman History by Paul Gorman of 94844

Hi Paul no news for you but I live near Gormanstown in Meath & wonder did you check the following sites for info which is a long shot, 1st the Flax Growers list of 1796 shows 1 Gorman in the town land you mention but the two Fays shown are about 20 miles away, remember this only lists farmers who grew flax.
See http://www.failteromhat.com/flax1796all.php

Also see here where people lived in Meath in 1854 and there a about 75 Gormans (some are landlords so different name shown on search until you click on info) there are more Fays about 160 I think so you may find some on the same area, maps are given too. http://www.askaboutireland.ie/griffith-valuation/

If you have already checked there are very little except the Tithe Applottment books which may go online soon. Circa 1831 and the Valuation of land but if they owned land only I think.

Regards

Pat
