Ireland / Ballybo/Ballyboe Definition?
« on: Monday 09 August 21 23:39 BST (UK)  »
Hello Troops,
in my research i have often come across the terms Ballybo and Ballyboe.
One is a form of land measurement and the other is another district name for the townland of Findrum. Could someone provide me with a bit of background on both terms?

« on: Friday 06 August 21 01:42 BST (UK)  »
Hello Troops,
there was a McClure family that resided in the Bready/Tamnakeery/Cloghole area of Co. Tyrone from the 1700's to about 1911. They are said to have move to the 'southern hemisphere' circa 1904/10. Looking for  connections with names of Roulston, Nesbitt, Sayers, Hart and Harvey.

About 10 years ago i found a blog that provided a good background of the Parmenter introduction to Donegal. This Parmenter blog also documented its connection to a couple of McClure famillies. I have looked for this blog and have been unable to find it again. Does anyone have any clues and/or are any Parmenter researchers in this loop?
Here is a couple of clues - Andrew McCLURE.bc.1749Killynure? PARMITER.bc.1749.d.? -
The 1630 Donegal Muster Roll - Barony of Rapho has John Parmenter.
Parmenter was a church warden at Killygordon, Donaghmore Parish - 1686.
John Parminter was listed on the Hearth Money Roll 1665 Parish of Leck, Letterkenny District.

Donegal / Gregg - Temple - McClure connections
« on: Saturday 28 November 20 11:38 GMT (UK)  »
Hello Troops,
 trying to match family legend with known facts.
My 2xG grandfather David McClure was born in Cloghroe circa 1822. He married Margaret Temple in Stranorlar in 1843.
David's son Samuel McClure and his brothers migrated to Victoria Australia circa 1868. Prior to leaving they were in farm house in Magheranappin. Apparently no room for the sons in the house/farm. This farm was in the hands of the GREGG family and the legend has it that they were related to the Australian McClure [ per above mentioned Samuel].
My 25 years of digging have found no direct connection but recently unearthed an entry in the Convoy Presbyterian Church burial records that could link the Gregg to McClure thru the Temple's.
This entry was James Stevenson GREGG [1872-1911] who married Elizabeth Jean TEMPLE [1898-1983].
Looking for HALLMARK & AGHADOWEY, hopefully McClure/Temple/Gregg family or those in the know to help fill some gaps.
