i have recently found a record in the registry of deeds which i suspect could refer to my gt gt g/parents 'Malcolm Foster and Elizabeth Arnott' [married 3/7/1792 at clones].
i think i need the opinion of someone who has a local knowledge of the surrounding area of Newtown Butler [in case i'm barking up the wrong tree].
the lease, registered 27/1/1816 was for 3/4 of Dernabackey, for the lives of :
Malcolm Foster, gent of Coolnasilly, p/o Drumsilly, co Fermanagh
[son] John age 15
[dau] Sarah age 13
also John, resident of Rathmorgan
[son] Nethaniel age 18
i was wondering if Coolnasilly, p/o Drumsilly could be Coolnasillagh, Drumsillagh.
and Rathmorgan could be Rathmoran.
or is it perhaps another family in another part of Ireland ?
is it likely that additional usefull info would be on a copy of the origional lease ?
