Australia / Re: Married Woman has kids to new partner?
« on: Tuesday 30 November 21 21:12 GMT (UK)  »
This situation is not normal but not uncommon. I have found two family situations that paralell you original query. In Victoria my Johnston line had a wife with 4 children to original husband and a further 4 with the alternative partner all registered as Johnston. Another situation where a thrice married woman ]not Johnston] had a number of children in family unit that involved the Husband and live in 'provider' with the children registered under the husband but known locally with the 'provider'   name. Very confusing and also had a long term family disconnect. 'We don't talk about that!'.

Hello cupasoop - My Creighton are from Gosforth/Uldale just south of you in Cumbria. These Creighton[Crayton/Craiton] are said to have come from County Donegal pre 1800. The above threads do not fit with my info but if your research digs up any connection drop me a line. Good luck on your genie journey.

Thank you all for the great input. It again filled  some gaps. To Skoos - Cowtown that was very enlightening.

Thanks again.


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?
