Derry (Londonderry) / Re: Balteagh Pres. records
« on: Tuesday 21 June 22 10:20 BST (UK)  »
Brilliant ! Once again I'm indebted to you. I have all the Long deaths from the Civil registration, so I can pair up most of the wife's with their husbands. My lot are through Samuel's son Robert, who I can find only two children James and Samuel. James married Eliza Wallace of Dromore, T/f, and had two sons, Samuel and Cunningham before moving to Scotland, I had hoped to find the origin of the second sons name.  Samuel married and stayed on the farm.
But very many thanks for all the information.

Many thanks Aghadowey, these records show no mention of the 1828 congregation census, that's why I was looking for a more specific location at PRONI, ie at the end of the baptisms etc. Or in fact is it only available at the church. I already have the Londonderry 1831 heads of household census and the Tithe and Griffiths mentions, I searched all the Limavady registers and with the exception of a Wallace Long marriage in Ballykelly Pres these Longs are not mentioned. Hence my interest in this 1828 census, it would all the long family members.
But thank you once again for your help.

Very many thanks for your reply. I was not aware of the 1828 Balteagh church census, is it available in PRONI or only at the church ?  If in PRONI, where may the census be found in the registers or separate.
I'm interested in all the Longs in this church as I believe they are all connected. Griffiths shows the land farmed in Upper and Lower Drumsurn, the townlands are all connected, so it figures at one time one person owned it all.

Looking for any entries for the Long family of Drumsurn Lower and Upper, the lands owned march on the south of Lower to the North of Upper.
I have a Robert Long (1801-1859) who had at least two sons James 1837 and Samuel 1839
Robert is on Griffiths and name crossed out to James Long. John long in Upper was son of William Long ( died before 1863) he married and move to Galliagh in Londonderry.
But the Tithe of 1828 has Matthew Long in Upper and Lower, Samuel Long and Samuel jnr in Lower, William in Upper and William jnr in Lower and Upper. The 1831 census has f families - William and Matthew in Lower, and William, Widow and Samuel in Upper.
The family were Pres. except Samuel ( son of Robert 1859) who married a Rc and moved to Galliagh.
Is there any baptismal records for Balteagh Pres before 1864 and is there any burial transcriptions of the graveyard. I don't know how to figure out who belongs to what family.

Many thanks BALLYALTKILLIGANG - but I have all this info. I was simply wanting to contact Dougmc or Soapy1 to give them information on their families.

To Dougmc and Soapy1
I don't know if this line is still active, I've been researching the Becks of Ireland for a great many years, I was very interested in the Dorothea who married John Beresford, I have a Dorothy Beck of originally Quilley Dromore the sister of a John Beck of Quilley born 1756 and married his cousin Mary Beck, died in Ballysallagh in 1840. His son Samuel Beck of Ballysallagh was married 3 times - his third marriage was to a Dorothy Mills, they were the parents of Mary Beck who married John Jardine.
Mary Beck who married Robert Thomas Barrisfield ( grandson of John Beresford ) was the daughter of James Beck and Elizabeth Chambers of Ballykeel, they are connected to the Ballysallagh Becks, but several generations earlier.

Antrim / Re: Marriage: George Beck to Mary Ann Bell, in Belfast
« on: Thursday 03 December 15 16:15 GMT (UK)  »
Many thanks Aghadowey - I have the birth and marriage certs. I also could not find any birth for a George Beck, or any other names born to the couple George Beck and Mary Bell.
I was trying to get a response from the original sender 'grindstonedave', as he would appear to be directly related to the family, and would probably want the info I have.
I have all the info for Georges siblings ( four) and his fathers siblings, and back to the original Beck settler in the Donegore area - John Beck, born c 1680's, to a John Beck of Downpatrick born c 1650's - died 1718.

Hi - I have the tree for George Beck back to the early 1600's.
I've been researching the Beck lines in Ireland and their descendants for a long time.
I would gladly exchange any information you might have on George and his descendants for the earlier information.
You mentioned that George's mother was Helen Hill - I have his parents as James Beck and Elizabeth Hamilton.
Janet Hamilton Beck born in 1882 was a continuation of the grandmothers surname.
Also you mentioned there were two children born in Belfast before the family moved to Scotland.
I have the full details for Janet, but I cannot find any George.
Di you know if James Beck and Elizabeth Hamilton moved to Scotland with George and his family, as there is NO death registrations for them in Ireland.
James and Elizabeth must have died after civil registration commenced in Ireland in 1864, as they had a child, Sarah,  who was born and died in 1868.
George had 4 other known siblings, and his father James was one of 13 or 14 children.

Andrew - Very many thanks for contacting me.
My name is David Beck, I am a genealogist working for a firm of solicitors in Coleraine, Co Antrim, N. Ireland.
I was trying to find all descendants of a Robert Patterson of Portrush, in order to settle a Patterson estate, here in N. Ireland.
I was in contact with your brother John. All I needed was the addresses of your siblings, in order the solicitor could write you all re this estate, which he gave me.
I did not need to know anything further, as you and your siblings, were then all alive, so would be the next in line blood kin, of that particular line.
I have finished with my part of this, and it is now in the hands of the solicitors, who I think has settled this estate. There were quite a few beneficaries.
