Homan Potterton The Tong family were established in Ireland when Robert Tong (1810-74) came to County Offaly from Keelby in Lincolnshire to work on the estate of the Earl of Charleville. The family are still extant. Some of Robert's sons emigrated to New Zealand. I have published a history of the Tongs in Ireland in my book 'Potterton People and Places'.
