Allen of Camus, Glenleary etc- Macoquin, Dunboe, Coleraine
« on: Friday 09 October 09 14:17 BST (UK) »
I have just been trying to figure out the various Allen families in the Dunboe/ Macosquin area,  and if anyone is working on them, or knows about them, I'd be glad to hear from them. 
 My great grandmother Isabella Allen was granddaughter of Robert Allen of Glenleary who was 88 in 1911.

Hi,
   I have a record of a Robert Allen who was head of house in Glenleary, Macosquin in the 1851 census. His wife was Betty and his children were Nancy, aged 6, John, aged 18mths and Sarah aged 1 Month. I also have a record of the marriage of a Robert Allen to Elizabeth Henry in Dunboe 2nd Presbyterian Church on 3 Mar 1844.

That is a very speedy reply! many thanks, yes that is them. I have been piecing together odd bits, but they weren't well off, so are slipping through some of the nets. Thanks indeed for confirming the Dunboe marriage; I'd deduced from various sources that his wife was Elizabeth, and only today came at it from two angles on Emerald Ancestors to make it fairly clear that it was the right couple.
Now it looks as though I descend from Henrys, and up until now I knew only that my mother's cousin had married into that connection, so that is an interesting change of focus

Hi,
   According to the Griffith's Valuation 1858, Robert was not rich but as he held 10 acres of land and 2 1/2 acres of bog he was better off than most people.

thanks very much for the offered records; I have been through the film myself in Coleraine, but of course it would be nice to have a check from someone else's reading of it. Is there a gap up to the 1870s in the Macosquin register, or did I miss a few pages?

Thank you very much for these death notices. There is new information in them, and I am pleased to find  that the Glenleary folk buried in Camus I;ll have to have a look in that old graveyard as I pas by; I'd never thought I had anybody buried there to justify a poke around it

I was in Camus on Monday afternoon but wasn't looking for Allen graves- it's a bit overgrown at the moment so suggest wellies if grass is damp.
