"Little bit of local interesting info on an Andrew Luke Lennox, Presbyterian, born in 1839, died 1906. He married Agnes Jane McKane Nedwell (1866-1943) and they had four children - David Nedwell, Andrew Henry, John George and Robert Edward. Andrew Luke Lennox died in Castledawson and the cause of his untimely demise? - kick from either a donkey or mule! A descendant of a Luke Lennox, born about 1807, and died 29th December, 1891 at Tamnadace. He married a Margaret Lennox in 1838, and had a farm at Tamnadace of some 33 acres which was originally owned by a Thomas Love. In 1877, the farm was recorded as being owned by Luke Lennox and by 1910, in turn his son Andrew. These names are of course very familiar even today i.e. Tamnadace, Love (Loves Hill ?) and the name Lennox." (Facebook- Castledawson Life post- also a photo and comments posted)

I just went to Rootsweb and found a Thomas who died in 1892 and his father is given as Patriarch. If info is correct, Thomas had siblings Luke Lennox who married Margaret Lennox and Elizabeth who was born 1812 and died 1877. There is a death for a Betty Lennox in 1877 so she must not have married or she married another Lennox.
I don't have a Hugh as a child to Luke but I probably don't have all Luke's children. Also, perhaps there were other siblings to Thomas (such as James) who may have had a son Hugh.
Onward.

 "Patriarch" is not a name though is it, this is a word that means head of the family. So who ever wrote that tree doesn't know that persons name?

The tree I found on Rootsweb is very, very sloppy (and possibly very unreliable) but lists father as 'Family Patriarch Lennox.'

I did have a look at the Britishnewspaperarchive and on google. I did see some of the articles mentioned. Also had a look at facebook and Findmypast. Thanks everyone for all your help.
As for Patriarch, I have to wonder. I know it means the head of the family, but Luke is also supposed to have had a son Patriarch in 1840 as per Bradleys of So. Derry, which is strange.

'Patriarch' wasn't a Christian name- sounds like someone used it for the name of an ancestor rather than 'unknown'  ::)
