Armagh / Re: Hughes family of Armaghbrague
« on: Sunday 14 April 13 19:53 BST (UK)  »
Hi again, I'm going round in circles with this  ::) All I'm getting is a lot of maybes!!  I thought I had the tithes but no luck.  I think I had been thinking of the freeholders lists at Proni.

You can also search these by townland.  Armaghbreague has no Hughes, but 2 Donnellys...

I'm also looking at the townland of Granemore in closeby Parish of Keady.   I have a possible Owen Donnelly there, but can't prove he's mine. Cashel, Corran, Granemore, Cladymore and Armaghbreague are all very close together.

The name Malaghan is also mentioned in Cladymore Freeholders.

I've still to have another look on the IFHS Armagh site.

Yes, son-in-law might work. I've been looking at Griffiths for the Donnelly/Hughes names in various townlands and I'm totally confused myself!! 

Have you seen this site? It shows the layout of townlands clearly.

I'll spend a bit more time on this tonight and tomorrow.

This is interesting isn't it?  I will have to go and have another look at the land revision books and also the tithes.    What age was Bernard senior when he died in 1867?   My James Donnelly (Father of Owen who married in 1863) may have been of an age with Bernard.   

I will get back to you on this, but I have nothing more than an ''it's possible'' at the moment.  However I did have an Auntie Bernie ;D  and I have no idea where this name came from.

Did any of your family settle in Glasgow?

So there is, I'd better get to opticians ::)

Hi, I think the gent is going to light his ciggie with another (lit) one. It doesn't look as if his cig has been lit yet.   Years ago you used to see this happening a lot, but rarely nowadays.

Could they be in Croydon, Surrey , in 1881 census?   Young Eleanor could be mostly called by her second name, Maude, to differentiate from her mother.   Eleanor Maud was born 1872 according to Free BMD.

I haven't been able to get much further either.  Hopefully the Land Revision Books that are going online at Proni will help a little.

online now at

Another gorgeous one, we have been really spoiled.  :)  Thank you Irene. This picture was taken in 1969, and the only one taken at the wedding, so it does mean a lot to the family.  The original photo was full length but the lower half was so badly water damaged that we decided to crop and and just ask for the top half to be cleaned. We feel we made the right decision, thank you again to all the kind restorers.
