Hope someone is still interested in this thread.  My GreatGreatGrandparents were William M(c/e)garry (b 1792/d 1882) and Bridget (nee Weir) (b 1794/d 1864), in the 1851 Census the family was at 18 Aghanamoney Ballinderry.  They had about 12 children, of interest is Letitia who married Patrick Graham in Glenavy in 1860.  Letitia & Patrick moved to Scotland in 1870, where my Grandmother Mary Jane was born.

Thanks KG.
It is fortunate that William is in the fragment of the 1851 Census.  Also, there, at 13 Aghanamoney is his brother Henry and family, including two neices, Mary & Ellen.  Under Henry's entry is their Father William, who died in the winter of 1847 aged 82.  When Bridget died in 1864, at Aghnacommon Lurgan, her death was registered by her daughter Ellen.  H'mm, Bridget's death cert states that she is a widow, William "died" in 1882, they definitely had a son James, who married Margaret Peel in 1854, James was a JP.  I need to do a bit more head scratching.
The gap between the 1851 & 1901 census' makes it difficult to track families, particularly if they moved away.

His daughter indicates that he was a Justice of the Peace but the constable (enumerator) has added 'retired farmer'.

Hi KG,
You must be a busy person and I appreciate your responses.  I have to admit that I have extracted, from the RC parish registers of Aghagallon & Glenavy every reference to McGarry (& variations), same from NI Direct & UHF.  Hundreds of entries which I have attempting to "sort" into families, using the 1851 census fragments as my starting point, plus the "sponsors" names from marriage & baptismal records.  About to start buying marriage records, hoping to pick up the Father's names.
Always on the lookout for clues.  One of these Great Aunts was married to a Titanic seaman.
Regards & thanks,   Mick

Mick,
Like lots of RootsChatters, we just love supplying genealogical information!

Have you tried the free website irishgenealogy.ie
https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/civil-search.jsp
All records are free to save, and catholic marriages go back to 1864 (protestant marriages back to 1845). The name of the father of the groom and the bride usually mentioned.
