      I am trying to find out more about James Drysdale from Greenock who died 21/09/1870 aged 25, in a fall From Maggie’s Leap.
      He was over from Greenock to visit friends in Seaforde. Sometimes in Scotland ‘friends’ means relatives. I have Drysdale ancestors and am trying to trace them back to Scotland from County Down.
      There may be no connection with James. My ancestor was James Drysdale from the Cloughey area.

      My grandfather came from Brynsford and as a wee boy I spent many summer holidays there.
      I was told the story many times and the leap ( lep ) got wider every time.
      To day, any modern athlete could make the jump, back then dressed as a farm girl would be ?
      I just hope she made it.
