Thank you so much - I'm amazed at the amount of information you've been able to provide already!

Down / McCutcheons Tullylish Co Down
« on: Sunday 08 April 12 15:00 BST (UK)  »

I am looking for information about my gg-grandfather William McCutcheon who is listed as a blacksmith in Ballynagarrick Co Down on my g-grandfather, Thomas McCutcheon's  marriage cerificate. Thomas was born in 1864 and was married in Tullylish in 1900. I have Thomas on both the 1901 and 1911 censuses.

Any help would be much appreciated!

Thank you

I now have a marriage certificate for Martha Doak. It reads:

Martha Doak (spinster) of Full age residing in Ballynagarrick, father Joseph Doak (weaver)


Thomas McCutcheon (batchelor) of Full age labourer residing in Ballydougan, father William McCutcheon (blacksmith)

3rd May 1900 Newmills Presbyterian Church

witnessed by Joseph and Minnie Doak.

Not sure if this Joseph is her father or another Joseph (there seem to be loads!) The only marriage I can find for 2 people of thisname is on the 1901 census but there ages would make it more likely to be Martha's brother.

Hope this is useful. Will let you know what else I find!

Martha's parents were:

Joseph Doak b 1829 and Elizabeth Spence b 1828 married 1865

I haven't been able to find any siblings for Martha and I'm guessing that given their ages at the time of marrying it's possible it was a second marriage for at least one of them.

I have siblings for Joseph Doak: Mary b 1823, John b 1825 James b1833 John b 1835 and Rachel b 1845. I also have a possible Job and an Anne Jane.

I'm assuming my grandfather Joseph McCutcheon was named for Martha's  father

Thanks for the response!

I've gone back and checked but I can't find any record of a Martha Doak marrying before she married my gt grandfather. The only other Martha Doak listed married a Joseph Rudduck in 1861. My Martha was born in 1866.

I found the record for Martha Maxwell marrying Samuel Doak on 27 Jan 1870 at Newmills Presbyterian Church in Tullylish and have found 2 children - Sarah Jane b 12 Nov 1870 and James Alexander b 26 Oct 1872.

Not sure who Abraham and Samuel are! Abraham was born in Lurgan 1894. Don't think Samuel is Samuel Edmund as Samuel E was born Jan-Mar 1881 which would make him 20 by the time the census was taken on 31st March. There is another Samuel Doak born in the same area between June and Sep of the same yaer. Ive ordered certificates for both - will let you know what I find out :)

I also received a message via A$$!

I have only recently started researching this thread of my family tree so I don't have much information yet except what I've been able to get from various sites. My gt grandmother was Martha Doak and she married my gt grandfather Thomas McCutcheon in 1900 in Tullylish N Ireland.

I believe we are connectedvia her gt grandfather John Doak who was the brother of Alexander Doak, your William Doak's father.

I would be interested in sharing any info you may have - the family seem to have spread far and wide! My grandfather married in Dublin and my father came to England. We have only just realised we have a N Ireland connection at all!
