Derry (Londonderry) / Joseph Stewart of Derryork
« on: Friday 18 March 16 14:08 GMT (UK)  »
Some years ago I came across the will calendar of Isaac Irwin of Drumaduff in the parish of Bovevagh. At the end it stated " Stewart versus Stewart" One of the executors of the will was George Stewart of Derryork in the parish of Dungiven. Later I found a local newspaper account stating that Joseph Stewart of Derryork had contested the will of Isaac Irwin but in court he represented himself while the executors had employed a solicitor. The case was found in favour of the executors.
 Recently I have found a pension application, undated, for Joseph Stewart. His parents are stated as Josiah Stewart and Rebecca J. Stewart of Derryork and Joseph's age is given as 74 years indicating that he was born sometime after 1834. Against the 1841 census on the application there is no comment and against the 1851 census it states "N/T".
   I am very familiar with the Stewarts of Derryork (George Stewart was my G Grandfather)  but have not found any family details of Josiah, Rebecca or Joseph. Can anyone help with this family?

Regards

Hi,
   In the 1831 census there are three Stewart households in the townland of Gortgarn in the Parish of Dungiven. Can anyone give me further details of these families i.e. number of males and number of females etc?

Hi,
   I have come across a poem written by John Shaw entitled "Home Thoughts". It is about memories of the townland of Drumneechy in the parish of Bovevagh, Co Londonderry. John Shaw was born in 1870 to William Shaw and Jane Downes who married in 1870 in Bovevagh Church of Ireland. From the age of three John lived in London. I will happily pass this poem to anyone who is interested. Also posted on the Londonderry board

Hi,
   Since at least yesterday I have been having trouble with this site on the "askaboutireland"site, Each time I bring up a name or a placename and try to look at "Details" or "Original Page" my computer tells me that I am "timed out" and to reload the page. Is anyone else having problems?

Ireland / Derryork
« on: Thursday 26 February 15 18:56 GMT (UK)  »
Hi,
    The townland of Derryork is in Co. Londonderry and most of it is in the parish of Dungiven but a small part is in the parish of Bovevagh. I know that the name Derryork is an English version of the Irish for "the oak grove of the pigs". I have come across an early reference to the small part of the townland where it is called DERRINABOE. Can any Irish speakers enlighten me on what this might be?

Regards

Tipperary / Downes-Martin
« on: Monday 02 February 15 12:03 GMT (UK)  »
Hi,
    I am helping my wife researching a Downs-Martin family for a friend of hers. There was a rumour that the family came from Ireland at one time. I have found a well to do family in the 1901 census in Tipperary http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1901/Tipperary/Borrisnafarney/Killoskehan/1701614/
   Can anyone tell me some more about this family? I believe that the lady's husband was or had been Captain Edward Downes-Martin
Regards
