The Constance Markiewicz Link

The familial link with Violet Bryce (née L'Estrange) involved four separate lineages, and presents quite a challenge. I'll try my best to modularise the connections, highlighting the key participants in blue.

1) One patriarch of the entanglement between the Gore-Booth, de la Poer Beresford, Lumley-Savile and l'Estrange families was George de la Poer Beresford the distinguished Bishop of Kilmore and Ardagh:

The bottom line is that Violet Bryce's great-uncle Edmund L'Estrange was married to Constance Markiewicz's great-aunt Henrietta Lumley-Savile, a remote connection indeed, but Violet and Constance might well have been documented in military intelligence dossiers as "cousins".
