Derry (Londonderry) / Re: Boyce of Cah townland, near Garvagh
« on: Wednesday 15 January 14 21:27 GMT (UK)  »
Hi again - the earlier message was re Mary Jane Boyce who married Thomas James McQuilkin - you mentioned that her father Matthew might have been the one baptised in 1st Garvagh Pres in 1822 with a fathers name Robert - are there any more baptisms for this Robert or Thomas.
Robert Boyce was deceased before 1862 as in the Coleraine Chronicle of 22 March 1862, the death of Mrs Robert Boyce of Cah died on the 15th inst., relict of the late Robert Boyce, aged 87 yrs.
But would Thomas Boyce the farmer (Tom) be a another son of this Robert ??

Very many thanks Aghadowey for all that information - I'm heading to PRONI tomorrow and the Ballylintagh graveyard was on my list.
My two queries were linked - the church and the Boyce family - William Boyce son of Thomas married Joseph Archibalds daughter Anne Eliza Archibald, their children all born in the Garvagh area, I presume from Cah ( Crosshill ).  This is why I'm still trying to figure out the family from that area.
I noticed in an earlier query that you mention a Matthew Boyce, son of Robert of Craeshill - Crosshill in Cah ?? - Matthew died 20 Mar 1867 aged 48 yrs so is probably the one you mentioned as being baptisd in 1st Garvagh to a Robert Boyce - are there any other Boyce baptisms in the area - apart from Hugh Boyces family (a son of Thomas of Cah ??) in 2nd Garvagh, I can find no others.
Joseph Archibald had another two sisters - Sarah and Ellen - Sarah married a Hughes and Ellen a Healy both in the USA - another grandchild May Archibald was in the USA - this from Nathaniel Archibalds will of 1895 - his sister Anne Boyce of Coleraine is also mentioned.

I'm trying to locate any possible marriage and baptismal register for this church.
In PRONI there is only a marriage register from 1872 to 1883.
BUT I have a marriage certificate for a Joseph Archibald (formerly of Bellisle, father Nathaniel) of Collins. later Lisnamuck,  near Aghadowey, who married Elizabeth Workman, daughter of William Workman (deceased) of Culdrum, this was in 1846, the first registered marriage in that church -- BUT it is NOT in the NI marriage indexes nor any mention of it in the GRO Belfast - I did get a copy of the cert from Dublin, it appears on the Mormons website Irish marriage indexes, with volume and page number.
Does anybody know where the older marriage register is ????
William Workman is probably the one buried in Aghadowey Pres. graveyard in 1833 with a son William.
Is there any information as to his wife's name ?

Trying to sort out the Boyce family of Cah townland.
I have a 2 Thomas Boyce's from Griffiths valuation - one a farmer, one a carpenter.
The farmer definitely had David born 1842 married Jane McLaughlin of Cah, later moved into Coleraine.
and possibly a Hugh.
Thomas, the farmer, might have had a father Robert - who had another son Robert who married Hester Moody, possibly a Matthew married Eliza Young (he died 1867 aged 48)
Are there any baptisms which might sort out the family or is anybody researching the Boyce family of this area.
I cannot figure out Thomas the carpenter.

Judith - many thanks.
Could you tell me the contact details for the ROWE tree which has this information on Ancestry - I cannot access it - I have presumed that whoever knew Eileen - also knew the family - I would be keen to contact them to see if they have any more information on the family.
According to this ancestry tree - the person did not know the mothers name - information which I have and the marriage details.

This Algeo line are from county Leitrim, they are not directly connected to the Donegal Algeos -
They might be connected before 1635 - and would more than lightly be a Scottish connection.
There are quite a few Algeo researchers - my Algeo lines are from Dunfanaghy in NW Donegal - Thomas Algeo being my 3 times great grandfather (1794-1869)

Donegal / Re: Rebecca Wilkinson
« on: Monday 11 March 13 10:35 GMT (UK)  »
Hi - I can't remember if we have already been in touch.
Rebecca's parents Anthony Wilkinson and his wife Mary Wilkinson were living in Faymore townland near Creeslough.  Although, as far as I can tell, the parents were church of Ireland BUT their children were married in Clondahorkey Roman Catholic Chapel.
I cannot find any baptisms for any of their children as the parish registers did not exist before 1880 for the RC chapel and the early C of I registers were destroyed - only surviving from the early 1870's.
Both Anthony and Marys siblings were married and buried in Ballymore Church of Ireland.

Eileen Mary Frances Phillips was born in Edinburgh, Scotland in 1909 - parents were Philip Gordon Phillips and his wife Agnes Hamilton. He was a medical student at that time, being born in Tunbridge Wells, Kent in 1885.
I believe that this was their only child - she emigrated to Australia and died in Victoria, date unknown.
I do not know if she was married, but there are several 'hits' on for her appearing on several trees -
If someone knows anything about her or her parents, or can put me in touch with one of the people who submitted the ancestry trees - please get in touch with me at (*)
My main interest is the Hamilton line - Agnes being a 1st cousin once removed.

Ayrshire / Sidney McCracken Hamilton
« on: Monday 26 November 12 17:41 GMT (UK)  »
Sidney McC. Hamilton was born in Dungannon, N. Ireland in 1911 he married Eileen Rose Patterson in 1941 in Belfast - he was a headmaster of a primary school in Mossleyuntil 1974.
Two children - (*) born 1949 and (*) born 1955 both in Co Antrim.
Upon retirement family moved to Troon - Sidney died there 1997, Eileen his wife died 2007 - lived at 11 Fraser Avenue in Troon.
Is there a wills index to cover the two death years ?
Were there any death notices in the local newspapers that might mention the girls ?
Presumably both buried in Troon ?
Cannot find any mention of a marriage or death for the girls on Scotlands People.
Trying to find these two girls and their families.
Many thanks
