The son's wedding was in a Presbyterian church in Dublin, so, like all the others, our James Beatty was probably of Scottish origin.

Tradition was to marry in the brideís church, so if the 1873 marriage was in a Presbyterian church in Dublin that probably tells you more about her denomination than her husbandís. Iíd keep an open mind on that issue. He could well be Church of Ireland. (The majority of Beatty/Beattie entries in the 1901 Fermanagh census are Church of Ireland).

Thanks Elwyn, Every clue can help, but we know much more about her family than his so far, C of I from county Sligo. They raised their children as C of E once they came to Melbourne, except that soon after arriving in 1878 James bought a burial plot in the Presbyterian section of the St. Kilda cemetery.

Hi Marcella,

I found an Archibald Beatty married to Jane Robinson 25 Jan 1861 at Sallaghy COI, Galloon, Fermanagh, his address is given as Crockerahoas, Galloon, his father James Beatty (Labourer). Jane's address given as Derrycorby, Galloon, father is William Robinson (Farmer). Both ages are shown as "Full". I can find no reference to any children of theirs in the Sallaghy Birth/Baptism register entries.

There are also references to Archy/Archibald Beatty's in the 1830-1844 Galloon parish registers one is married to Letitia Guy the other refers to an Eliza Guy. likely to be the same couple, married 3 Aug 1835 and some children shown. Also 2x mentions of James Beatty marriages one to Margt Armstrong on 28 5 1839, the other to Ellen Levingston on 24 9 1841, no children shown for either couple.

There are also over 50 Beatty names in the Gallooon OPR 1798-1830. Among them a burial for Elizabeth Beatty age 35 of Sligo, Co Sligo.

I know there are Beatty's scattered all over, but you never know if people post what they know, something may well match a small snippet of what you already know.

Good Luck

Thanks Rusty, I'm planning to strain my brain trying to tease out all the Beatty clues on a future visit to archives in Ireland. At the moment I'm busy writing up all I've learned about the Pagets for my website. My grandfather's name, Archibald, is probably one of the best clues we have as it certainly wasn't a Paget name, so I'll certainly follow up your suggestion later on.

Thanks Hallmark, Actually yes, that is my website you've linked to above, but you've reminded me that, now that I've written them up I should put the link to it more visibly on the thread under Mayo about the Pagets of Mayo.

I just left a comment on your amazing website!

The James Beatty I'm looking for was born Circa 1817, died 1888, is buried in Laghy Cemetery, and was apparently "Of Dublin" prior to his death, according to the headstone photo I have.

His father was William Beatty and his sister was Anne Beatty who married Wm. Armstrong in 1847.
You have so much great information, do you think that my James could be the father to your James? Please have a look at my family history blog & let me know if you think there's a connection:
