A bit more info on the Robert Allen and Elizabeth (Betty) Henry marriage of 1844 in 2nd Dunboe; it turns out that both were from Ballinrees, and were married in Dunboe by certificate fromMr Lyle,  so that makes more sense to me now. It wasn't clear to  me why they might have married in Dunboe and then baptized their children in Macosquin. Presumably Mr Lyle was minister of Macosquin?

Being married in Dunboe by Mr. Lyle makes sense but marriages usually take place in bride's church so perhaps they went to Macosquin** or moved after their marriage.

** first Allen baptism in Macosquin Presbyterian Church is 1879. Do you mean Macosquin Church of Ireland?

I'm beginning to think this 1844 marriage in Dunboe may not be the right marriage. Names fit, date is plausible, but I can't see why they are said to be of Ballinrees, and in second Dunboe; even if they are First Dunboe members that still doesn't work too well. I know Glenleary isn't a million miles from Dunboe and from Ballinrees, but they were in Glenleary in 1851, were communicants in Macosquin and buried in Camus and also I had been postulating a connection to Henrys of Camus, rather than of Ballinrees. If they were married before 1845, it won't show in public records and I think, all in all, that it's not impossible that there was another couple called Robert Allen and Eliza Henry.

Hi Linde

I know your post is from 2009, but having read it - something you might want to consider is that 2nd Dunboe and Ringsend Presbyterian Church is covered by the one Minister - not sure how long this arrangement has been in place - but as you move towards the Leck from the church you are not a million miles away from Macosquin, althoygh Camus is somewhat removed. Best regards T.

I  believe we are researching the same family. Robert Allen was my husbands great great grandfather. Robert and Betty had a daughter who was called Margaret  Ann Allen she married a McMichael. she kept the Henry name in the family by calling one of her daughters Bessie Henry McMichael.  We are looking for the birth registration of Margaret.  I do have census documents and willing to share the links
