Hi there, I will most certainly make contact with Mrs. Beacom from Corick House. Thank you so much for the link. I have a feeling that the Beacom that went to the USA was James.

Pretty co-incidental that a James Beacom from Irvinestown should arrive in the 'States in 1909.

Ok. I have just e-mailed Mrs. Beacom at Corick House. I have since discovered that there are actually THREE different branches of the Beacom family in Northern Ireland. These are the Irvinestown, Enniskillen & Lisbellaw Beacom families. Apparently people have conducted research on these three families and no connection between the three has been found. I have been advised though that although the highest concentration of the Beacom family is in Co.Fermanagh BUT that the Beacom name isn't a hugely common name either. Based on the supposition that there is no link between these three 'clans' but also the uncommonness of the surname that there HAS to be a link SOMEWHERE down the line.

All the best,

Gregg

RKL
I have only just discovered your post.
I am descended from Mary Jones. She was the mother of Matilda, known as Etty.
Matilda married George Fisher. They were my gt gr parents.
I understand that Mary's maiden name was Beacom. Her parents were James Beacom and Sarah Brown. Is there a marriage record?
Mary and Thomas Jones had at least 8 children between  1831 and 1843.
Have you any idea when they moved to Manchester from Enniskillen?
I have them in the 1851 census, but as Ellen and Etty were born in Enniskillen in 1843, I will not be able to find them in the English 1841 census.

I'm searching for my Beacom ancestors as well..

Isabella (my g-g-grandmother) born c. 1834, her sisters Jane born c. 1840 and Margaret born c 1842, parents John and Rebecca, nee Mitchell.

Isabella states on her marriage certificate (to Thomas Hewson in Ararat, Victoria, Australia in 1870) that she was born in Tyrone and that her father John was a farmer.

There are two farmers listed in the Griffiths Valuations, one in Relagh, Kilskeery, Tyrone and the other in Glasmullagh South, Kilskeery, Tyrone.

I've emailed Mrs Jean Beacom at Corick Country House too to see if she can shed any more light on them.

Any other information would be gratefully received. Thanks!

Tyrone), Beer (Devon); Perry (Warwickshire); Tanner (Wiltshire); Mostyn Owen (Shropshire & Wales); Coles (Somerset & London); Fox (Cornwall); Peirce (Monmouth); Tolson (Yorkshire); Haigh (Yorkshire); Lunn (Yorkshire); Neill (Co. Down); Davies (Shropshire); Dryden (Roxburgh); McVane (Roxburgh); Lillico (Roxburgh); Symington (Roxburgh); Dickson (Roxburgh).

I've found out more about my Beacoms since I last posted...

John Beacom and Rebecca Mitchell married at Magheracross Parish Church, Ballinamallard, Fermanagh on 5 May 1829. Their children were Mary (bap 11 Apr 1830), Isabella (bap 20 Apr 1832) (my great-great-grandmother), Edward (bap 15 June 1834), Andrew (bap 4 Sep 1836), Jane (bap 15 Aug 1839) and Margaret (bap 18 Dec 1842).. all in Kilskeery, Co. Tyrone. They lived at Glassmullagh, Kilskeery, Co. Tyrone. John's parents were Edward and Isabella Beacom.

Lots of info can be found at the Fermanagh Gold and Ireland Genealogy Projects websites.

My grandfather was Jack Beacom born c.1930. He married my grandmother Gertrude Brennan, not sure of date. They lived in Co. Armagh but according to my dad (Maurice Beacom), the family came from Enniskillen. Are any of these names familiar? Can anyone help?

I noticed a post from snoons 22 Jan '10 where Martin Forster married to Jane Beacom are the GGGG Grandparents of snoons(Trisha). Martin Forster is my GG Grandfather. What have you found about MF and JB? I gather I have to make three posts before I can use the direct communication method. If you reply I'll come up with two more posts.

There are still Beacoms in Lisnarick. We know an Upholsterer there - lovely fella. There is often confusion over our names, our name is Deacon!
