Hey Hallmark and others,
I love you! This is fabulous! That daughter you unearthed who was 20 years younger than any other of James Beatty of Aghavoory's children (it hadn't occurred to me to look in C of I records for Presbyterian children!) - was SO much younger than any siblings known that I wondered if James had remarried. YES! he did! RootsIreland has the record of his remarriage in 1859. James Beattie, Farmer, of Aghavoory, WIDOWER, married Sarah Cooke of Aghavoory at Cavanaleck meeting house. AND, (you know what I'm going to say don't you :) The marriage being in the civil registration period,  gives the name of HIS father - Archibald Beatty, Farmer and takes my Beatty ancestors back a whole generation! Am a happy customer! Though I still might go to Ireland... Except I know now that the list of communicants at Cavanaleck won't give the name of my ggg grandmother which I'd been hoping. Oh well... THANKS! Off to write this all up on my blog now :) :)

You are welcome!

Hi Gortinanima,
It's very kind of you to do this research on our family and much appreciated. We're aware of the tantalising connection between the Beattys of Farnamullan and Aghavoory, but even after wading through the Colebrooke Estate records at PRONI I have been unable to prove that the farmer Archibald Beatty who was the father of James Beatty of Aghavoory was the same person as the Archibald Beatty of Farnamullan who married Martha Moore of Aghavoory. It's maddening, as genetic testing indicates such a close relationship! I've given up in frustration for the time being - the latest is on my family history blog:

https://taggerty.wordpress.com/

My family is L-560 in the Beatty project you gave the link to. I should update our tree there as I put it up before I'd discovered James of Aghavoory.
Cheers.
James Beatty, Farmer, of Aghavoory, near Fivemiletown, Co. Fermanagh, 1797-1873. His son James Beatty, born Fermanagh 1842, Married Marcella Paget in Dublin 1873, had a drapery business in Ballina, Mayo approx 1860-1875 and emigrated to Victoria, Australia 1878. His brother was Archibald Beatty,  Merchant of Lisnaskea/Ballina/Liverpool.

If you look at the will of Archibald Beatty of Farnamullan 1869 he had a brother named James Beatty.

I think that it is likely that this is your James Beatty (1805-1880). His daughter Matilda Beatty married William Robinson.

Matilda Robinson was witness to the death of her father James Beatty in 1880.

William Robinson was a witness to the marriage of Martha Beatty of Farnamullan (dau of John Beatty, farmer) to Alexander Corrothers in Enniskillen Methodist in 1871.

Seems likely to me that he was a witness to the marriage of his wife's cousin.

OK Gortinanima,
I'm trying not to get too excited as I really want to believe what you're saying. Yes, I know that Matilda, the daughter of James Beatty of Aghavoory married William Robinson. Yes, she was witness to her father's death, but (presumably according to the information Matilda Robinson provided) he died in 1873, aged 76, so would have been born in 1797. His death cert is on my blog (link below). Where did you get 1880 as his death? DOB 1797 doesn't quite fit with other sources known to descendants of the Farnamullan Beattys, who have James Beatty, their second son according to the order of Archibald's children, born c1807, despite his parents having married in 1792. Wouldn't you think that 1797 was the perfect date for the birth of a second son born to them?? Anyway, he was obviously still alive when his brother Archibald died in 1869, and only got a token amount in his younger brother's will. I'd like to think that's because James, the eldest surviving son was very well set up - at Aghavoory!
Please keep thinking! This could link two lineages in the Beatty project!
