Down / Re: Jane gibson baptism/birth
« on: Saturday 16 March 19 20:12 GMT (UK)  »
Not forgetting the Banbridge Gibson  I noted in Griffiths Valuation Forde Samuel Tullynacross   Magheralin   Down
I turned to Dathit twosome
It was not uncommon for children missing their immediate baptism event for many reasons lambing ,summer harvest., returning to her birth home for the birth etc  Samuel and Margaret probably found around Feb or March 1951 they were having another child due in July 1851, and asked the priest could they have  Jane baptized asap and had her baptized 25 March  1851 possibly at the age of 1 or older 

Assuming that Samuel was a native of Magheralin himself and not Banbridge
from the 1823-37 Tithe Applotment books  no Gibsons in Magheralin found
from  Griffiths Valuation more options aris
Following are the exact matches:
Gibson    William   Taughlumny      Magheralin   Down
Gibson    Thomas   Ballymacbredan   Magheralin   Down
so the chances are Samuel is a native of Magheralin , he might well be living with father or older brother who could be a William or Thomas  one could follow  online via the PRONI website at either or both in the valuation continuation books eg who takes over the homestead I have crossed out those books thathave no one relevant in 1901 census

All of these come with map refs , you can see the boundary of the homestead and usually a blg or blgs inc a barn etc If you then look up the website or go to google you can normally see the area in sateliite and moving to max magnification if you can click on a road nearby you can find yoursekf in Street scene and then master the camera so you can go up the road looking for amonor road to the homestead and sometimes see part of the original building

Valuation continuation books exist to follow up each online at PRONI and you can then trace the family name changes  up to 1922 etc

That can be backed up by the 1901 and 1911 census

Ireland / Re: Cornmiller in Ireland
« on: Sunday 10 March 19 08:54 GMT (UK)  »
Maiden Stone, what clarity and display of knowledge. my nose would have been out of joint initially to receive it, but that is how the very best of family history can become foolproof. Annette good luck encorporating what you already have or can find further informations on.

re Irish Tithe Applotment books, :- i have not come across any further description of land or water use  other than the quality of the land ie good pasture, bog, mountain

Ireland / Re: Cornmiller in Ireland
« on: Saturday 09 March 19 22:10 GMT (UK)  »
You have worked very hard to acguire your information. I cheekly relaid out your info into a draft tree to be able to query and hopefully insert new bits things only to find confirmations of what you had found. I find I don’t understand the reason of McKay unusual movements in Ireland. You don’t move the mill you have built etc

James MacKey (deceased) a Miller later a Corn Miller  m ? Winifred? census1871 Winifred McKay b1790 ireland lodger with Charles in  England 1881.  the Griffiths Valuation in 1852 for Lissagadda Lorrha Co. Tipperary with Winifred McKay listed probably the widow of James McKay.  Winifred McKay is over in Lancashire by 1861 as a hawker living with Margaret Madden in the town, 1871 with Charles and family and she died in 1880 and from the newspaper obituary it stated widow of James McKay a Corn Miller.

children in particular order and at this stage could include speculations
1. John a brother to Charles McKay/ MacKey ak to Annette128
 John son of James and Winifred [who is Winfred?] b  at Boyle, Roscommon in 1825 [does this mean birth] this is the nearest I can find to Sligo just over the borders,

2. William? a brother to Charles McKay/ MacKey ak to Annette128’ William no baptism found he marries in Preston to Bridget Murphy nee Slyman (she is from Kilteeven or Gallen Co. Mayo) on this marriage entry the father James is noted as "traveller"  when does he come to the town

3. Charles McKay/ MacKey b c1829 Sligo [where does it say SligoIreland.  Not found 1851 at all, 1871, 1881 just state Ireland census 1871 gives 1830.   Genes Reunited gives four possibilities
Charles   McKay   1831   Limerick, Ireland ...   No   Nicholas treeholder   
Charles   McKay   1830   Sligo Ireland ...   No   Lynne treeholder   This lynne has John b 1831 and anotherMckay
Charles   McKay   1830   Lisnaent Ireland ...   No   Leonard treeholder   1861 census gives at ref 107 in handwritten version a Charles McKay  aged 30 m Margrett with Ann and Joseph aged 5and 1 occupation Marine something   b Ireland Lisnabut, lisnacut, lisnaout,lisnarut      Address Leachall St Lancashire address but the family doesn’t match 
Charles   McKay   1829   Sligo Ireland ...   No   David treeholder

m1. 1853 St Johns RC Chapel Rochdale Ellen Flinn put down as Mackey his father is noted as James MacKey(deceased) a Miller.

1871 Union Street Rochdale [Wardleworth parish
children from 1871 census
3.1. John F McKay b 1858 Lancashire m Mary had family james W 1877 howard st rochdale
3.2. Martin McKay b 1860 Lancashire lodger in Castleton Rochdale1881 warehouseman cotton
3.3. Margaret McKay b 1862 Lancashire
3.4. Charles McKay b 1864 Lancashire didn’t find Charles in 1881
1871 census shows lodgers Winifred McKay above and John McKay b1831 but doesn’t say brother

m2. 1871 Manchester cathedral Mary Farran or Mellor [ census 91 gives b1843 Cheshire   father is noted as James McKay a Corn Miller but not as deceased.
Census 1891 Marys the widow house  Cronkeyshaw Road Rochdale [Wardleworth parish
3.5. Winifred McKay b 1876
3.6. Alfred McKay  b1878
3.7. Harry McKay b 1881
3.8. Ellen McKay b 1883
 “So I was thinking if James was a corn miller, would it be a proper mill, or would he be a farmer, if someone can give me some more insight that would be great thank you for taking the time to read this query!”
In my farming family 1820-1830, the mill was marked as a separate structure on the 1st OS map of that time, but by OS 1st revision 1860 it had become a disused building and shown. However in all my FH searches I have never come across a person selling the product of such an irish mill in England.  Most of McKays settled around Rochdale and worked in the cotton industry. there was a cotton industry in Ireland that struggled unsuccessfully against the machinery introduced around these very times. if the McKay mill had been a small cotton mill they would have needed the market to sell their product and so might have had  travellers. later the linen industry was headed by sales anyway across all waters. Anyway i hope others join in your search

Ireland / Re: Cornmiller in Ireland
« on: Friday 08 March 19 14:18 GMT (UK)  »
in the Ireland 1901 census there are 2839 entries for known surnames whose occupation was classed as Corn Miller  [twowords]
in the Ireland 1911 census there are 2373 entries for known surnames whose occupation was classed as Corn Miller  [twowords]

however unlike your English experiences ther are just very minor part survivals of Irelands census history before 1901 t its commencement  in 1821. there are substitutes eg
Griffiths valuation four sources 1. for quick index.   2. for detail and map ref ..  3. since 1863. 4 the same at national Archives Dublin for tippe

if he the son travelled to sell his fathers corn or flour, he is more than likely to be identified sinply as a [commercial ] traveller.
why don’t you allow us to help identify your two individuals further in Ireland records if you want further help it does depend on the time period and surviving records
good luck anyway

Ireland / Re: Looking for the father of Thomas Connolly
« on: Friday 08 March 19 09:26 GMT (UK)  »
your stuck with  Scotlands people. useing my subscription elsewhere I can find no trace for the irish connection at first. I did find the Edinburgh family extending to at least 8 children born 7 from the 1901 census and one Ann b 1891 Newington from I did find the spelling also included Connoly  I did find apart from the census,   James, as b~1883 was registered by familysearch as b 24 Jun 1881 St George Edinburgh. the other children were all registered Newington [South] Edinburgh. the 1901 census for Scotland did list staying withe family, Thomas layden b 1856 ireland brotherinlaw Blacksmith married
going backwards on Layden name, in 1911 census ireland , its distribution was only found in
so Bridget Layden might have been b Ireland in one of 5 counties . I tried unsuccessfully  the free and
I cant help further, you will need every lead you can find eventually
Lots of luck

see  read more at it cups Murlough Bay from just the east side of Doon in the west, past the Boat port and the net port to Gottier pointjust this side of Ruebane Point to the East

Jean M. Sidebotham has written an article A Settlement in Goodland Townland, Co. Antrim
in Ulster Journal of Archaeology Third Series, Vol. 13 (1950), pp. 44-53 Published by: UlsterArchaeological Society

I found a connection to a George Stewart also spelt Stuart in his own records  baptized 1785 see however he joined up either in 6 miles down the coast at Cushendun or gave  Cushendun as the nearest big village/small town near him. Ballycastle woukd have been about the same distance eastwards from Goodland
over to you to sign in this great website
I am unable find the connection to Lighthouses ie irish lights. The lighthouses everyone knows about, are on Rathlin island but all came much later eg east 1856 the others later.
If it is the right relative he moved to Bayleek, Clifden as Chief Boatman in Charge on 31st December 1860.
thats a possible start what do you think
