Some of the Wicklow ancestors obtained land from the Williamite settlements and came from England. Her maternal ancestors (RCs) lived in south County Dublin as far back as the early 1800s.
Father's paternal ancestors Co Westmeath traced back to late 1700s; an outlier caused by my RIC great grandfather who married a woman from Inishboffin Co Galway - her ancestors traced back to early 1800s; father's maternal ancestors Co Meath traced to early 1800s.
Can't see any scope for 25% scottish ancestry there and no DNA matches have turned up in Scotland.
