Hi all Armitage researchers.  For a rambling 26 page discourse by Spencer Armitage-Stanley of Canada posted in 1997 under heading "Armitage in Ireland - Genealogy & Family History" go to: www.geocities.com/karmit007/armitage2  - this will make your head hurt but he does mention Rory and others including immigrants to Canada and US - anyway it's quite a read.  Armitage family from Modreeny, Cloughjordan in Tipperary were Methodist prosletisers in oh so Catholic Ireland in 1800s.  I have a distant connection so stumbled on this by accident.  Good reading.  Kenvic

I was just in Modreeny in County Tipperary, Ireland and went to the old Church of Ireland cemetery. I took lots of pictures. My grandmother grew up in Lucan Ontario, Canada but our family was from Modreeny. I recognize the Armitage name from both Ireland and Canada. The Lucan , Ontario map from the1800's has the name as does the cemetery nearby.
My dad ( Hodgins family) recognizes the name from growing up.

There is a Voluntary Project where people visiting Cemeteries take photos to put online to help others... someone took some of Modreeny

http://www.igp-web.com/IGPArchives/index.htm#gsc.tab=0 then Select County, then Headstones..

25 were donated for Modreeny

Armitage family were in Cloughjordan, my cousin worked for them when she left school.
I will contact her and see if there is any family in the area.

Kenvic, in your post, you say that the "Armitage family from Modreeny, Cloughjordan in Tipperary were Methodist prosletisers in oh so Catholic Ireland in 1800s." Can you elaborate further and explain your source? To support your comment, my 3x great-grandfather, John Armitage, came to New York state before 1816, the year he purchased land. We think he came from Tipperary. He was instrumental in founding a Methodist church near him and one of his sons, my 2x great-grandfather became a Methodist minister. I would like to understand the history better, even though I don't have concrete family ties back to Ireland.
