About John /Yehuda Alexander Barzel/Bloomer

John Alexander Bloomer de jure 9th Earl of Stirling (used title in Russia)also known as Yehuda Barzel. John was born in the US and left as a small boy with his family in 1783. They settled as soldier -farmers in Knockbride Parish in Cavan Ireland. He later moved to Russia where he became a soldier in the Czarist army. Here he became involved with the Frankist movement to which his wife and father-in-law belonged. His mother and some other family members moved to live in Russia. Around 1815 the family returned to Cavan and settled in the area of Knockbride that was to take the name Ruski or Rooskey. John may have also used the name John Gormley at this stage when he embraced the Irish Catholic faith in a deeper way. He had been reared as a crypto Jew in the Church of Ireland before his conversion to Catholicism in Russia. Many other members of the family remained Church of Ireland.
