Elizabeth Medcalf of Windgate, County WIcklow

Faulkner's Dublin Journal of March 5th - 9th, 1765, at http://www.irelandoldnews.com/Dublin/1765/MAR.html contains the following notice under the heading "Marriages":

“Wednesday last, Mr. Joseph Cuthbert, an eminent Taylor of the Parish of Delgenny, County of Wicklow, to Miss Medcalf, of Windgate, in said Parish”.

The Christ Church Delgany, County Wicklow, register shows the marriage of JOSEPH CUTHBERT to ELIZABETH MEDCALF on March 7th, 1765.

The only child of Joseph and Elizabeth (nee Medcalf) Cuthbert that I have discovered so far is a son, RICHARD CUTHBERT, baptised on October 13th, 1766, also at Christ Church Delgany.

On the Family History Library Film # 0,100,227 (Dublin Consistorial Office marriage licence books c 1630-1825) there is an entry for a RICHARD CUTHBERT of Dublin, carpenter, who married a SARAH MEDCALF, spinster. Their licence was dated October 26th, 1792, and the Parish was Stillorgan which seems to be in County Dublin but not far north of County Wicklow. I don't know if this Richard is the same person who was the son of Joseph Cuthbert and Elizabeth (nee Medcalf).

I am researching the Cuthberts of County Wicklow and would be interested in any information about the Cuthbert-Medcalf connection.
