In this episode we deal with the Pery Family
In the early 17th century Edmond Pery of Exeter met and married the only daughter of Stephen Sexton, who was the owner of the South Prior area of Limerick. This would leave Edmond in line for inheriting this extensive tract of land. When Edmond died this land passed to his son Edward and then his grandson Stackpoole. In this video we pay close attention to three of Stackpoole Pery’s children: Edmond Sexton, William Cecil, and Lucy, each of whom left an imprint on Limerick that can still be seen today.
