No.  I have never heard of Speer or Ledlie in our research.  Thank you.

Hi

I am Princess 41.  I don't believe I have a connection with the Cunningham's.  I wish I could find my Irish Roots.

All I know is my Great Grandfather Edward Augustus Ferguson born 3 September 1838 in Drumachose came to Australia some time in the 1850's early 1860's.  He died 20 May 1918 in Dunwich, Queensland Australia.

His Father was William King Ferguson and on Edward's marriage certificate it states his father was a hatter & his Mother Ellen Jane (nee Osborne).

I had heard Edward lived in 63 Catherine Street, Limavady.  Does anyone in that part of Ireland know this address or any history of the Ferguson's at that address? What about the history of the house?  If anyone knows where he is buried could they please send me records of his death or information regarding the grave.  And what about Ellen Jane Osborne, does anybody know anything of her family.  Is anyone related to them through sisters and brothers.

Come on you good Irish folk.  I just know that you would love to help and brighten up the day of an Aussie down under.  You are great, generous people.

Many, many thanks.

Glenys

You can find the address quite easily on sites like Google Maps. If you drag the little orange man on left side of screen onto the map you will see what it looks like now.

The original name for the town was Newtownlimavady (changed to Limavady in late 1800s).

If you read through this thread from the start you will see that some of your questions have already been answered.

Kingskerswell

You made reference on 25 Sept 2011 about the marriage of William King Ferguson to Ellenor Osborne.  Does the record you have list any of their Parents or Sister or Brothers?

As always, I thank you for your help.

17 Nov 1837 William H Ferguson married Ellenor Osborne in Bovevagh Presbyterian Church, Newtownlinavady (nowadays officially known as Limavady)

Post registration (1845/1864) marriages will list fathers' names not mothers of other relatives (unless they were one of the 2 witnesses- but relationships of witnesses are not stated).
Early marriages- such as the 1837 one above- usually only show date, bride and groom and witnesses.

If you have access to the listing, can you see if any witnesses are listed?

Thank you again.
