Thanks Tom I found my Morton/Moreton family on there.

A lot of parish records for Shrule for COI were destroyed in 1922.

Baptisms 1727-1846, marriages 1727-1846 and Burials 1795-1904 are effectively non existent until the official registration period.

Hi there,
Just tried the links in the thread and neither are working for me  ???
I'm looking for Friary's in Longford in particular, but was interested to see who was in what farmlands and the town in that year.
Any help would be much appreciated  :)

That strangely makes sense. There's a family story that our ancestors were originally called Prior from Cavan and when they registered at the Colmicille parish in the early 1800's, their name was misheard/misspelt and changed to Friary.
So far, I've managed to trace them back to my g.g.g grandparents in Augheavans, Scrabby, Bernard Friary and Anne MaGouran/MaGovern/Smith, both born around 1828- 1830. It's been tricky, given that Anne's name was MaGouran for two of her children; MaGovern on the 1851 census and Smith for other children. She seemed to stay on Smith for the later children, so I'm guessing it depended on the times and places for the English-Irish morph between documents. They were in Augheavans in 1865; in Kilmore in 1866 and in Portanure in 1871. In Bernard's later marriage to Bridget Walsh in 1873, he's living in Cloonagh and lists his father as Bernard Friary.

However, this is where the suitable Bernard's stop. The earliest Friary families I can find are listed in the 1834 Leitram congregational records- no Bernard's. And it's not as if it's a common or regular name. The name is largely Longford based. In an effort to get as far as I have, I ended up doing family trees for the Kells Friary's, the Longford Friary's and the Templemichael lot. There's also a few in Meath. The name Bernard however, only crops up now and again and none I've found match an age range for either Bernard's.
Frustrated, I am! Lol.
Was hoping this record might bring up a Friary I could place, but I have a sneaky suspicion the family story might be true.


Thank you for your help  :)

I would love to look at those Longford voters lists. I am looking for family name Navan, spelt like the town. None of the links in the thread worked. First names in this family include Robert, Samuel and William. Samuel Navan born about 1787 and died at aged 92 was the grandfather of my maternal gggrandfather. So my  4 x g grandfather. There is a family grave in Newtownforbes. Just wondering can I push back another bit. This family also has a connection to family Anderson in Cavan who are listed in a fragment of the 1821 Cavan census, which I stumbled across the other day. I would be very grateful for any help or a working link.

couldn't get the link to work - Looking for Thomas Elliott or his son James Elliott born 29 March 1843 Moydow, County Longford (got this from his personnel files as a London policeman) - by 1860 he was in Killucan, Westmeath
No information available on his father Thomas but was hoping he may appear on the 1790 voters list - can anyone look at the list for me, thanks ... Alison
