Armagh / Re: Who Were The Parents of William Burrell Born 1831 Lurgan Ireland??
« on: Monday 13 April 15 23:17 BST (UK)  »
Hi again Kate,

Seagoe Church of Ireland BMD records would be a good source.   I am snowed under at present but maybe someone else can do a look up for you.   If you have no luck, give me a shout in a few weeks and I will do it.   I do know that Valentine Burrell is buried in Seagoe cemetery as his grave is only a few away from one of my ancestors graves.    The records of Seagoe Cemetery are only searchable from 1901 however burials were taking place hundreds of years before that, hence I suggest the Church Records which date from the 1600's.  Drumcree Chuch of Ireland may also be worthwhile to search along with the graveyards in Lurgan . ie. Shankill and Lurgan Cemetery aka the New Cemetery even though it dates from the 1800's.  http://www.lurganancestry.com/gravestones.htm  has the grave inscriptions for Valentine in Seagoe and also a Burrell in Shankill :-)   
 Regards, Barbara

Hi,
There is a William Burrell listed in the tithes applotment records for Seagoe Parish in 1834 in the townland of Drumnacnvey plus a Robert Gray in the townland of Breagh.  These would have been in the timeframe that William and Elizabeth were born.   http://www.lurganancestry.com/seagoetithes1834p1.htm

Hi,

As it is within living memory accurate family records will be harder to access online.  Try contacting the local newspaper , they have numerous contacts who could verify your information plus several journalists who specialise in this area.   http://www.portadowntimes.co.uk/contact-us   Or as listed in a previous post the site Portadown photos as I am sure Jim , the man responsible for the site will know.

Regards,
Barbara

Lots of 'Burrell's' living in neighbouring town of Portadown.  Seagoe Church of Ireland Parish registers worth investigating.  The Burrells lived in many townlands equal distance between the Towns of Lurgan and Portadown.

Regards,

Armagh / Re: McCorry surname

Sorry !!!  Just re-read your query.   Obviously it is not the same person as your Catherine's surname would be Cassells.
