I am doing a bit of Galloon research. Don't know how relevant Dernish Island is to myself though.

I was down in Fermanagh doing research on the Downey line.

My Great Great Grandfather/Grandmother was James Downey/Sarah Downey (Nee Rice). They are both buried in Sallaghy Church graveyard. They were resident in the townland of Derrylea.

I note that James' sister Catherine was married to a James Clingan who had a two children (at least in my records) Amelia Clingan and John Clingan. They were resident in Derrylea too as far as my research shows. Though they both got married in St. Anne's Cathedral in Belfast. A lot of the Downeys seemed to have moved to Belfast but eventually returned to Fermanagh, specifically the Lisnaskea area.

I can't remember exactly but I am nearly certain that when I was in Aghadrumsee Church that I saw a few Clingan graves.

Willing to share my other Downey research, feel free to PM.

There are a lot of Downey/Clingan inter-marriages in the Galloon area, especially around Derrylea, Ports, Derryadd & Ballagh.

Also both families use the same common names over generations. So dont be tempted to grab the first information you find, that looks right.

P.S. Dernish Island is a couple of hundred yards away in Lough Erne, from the Western shore of Derrylea.

Fermanagh, N.Ireland. Gardiner, Bryans, Clingan, Fawcett, Downey, Armstrong and any marriages into Gardiner or Bryans (incl Variants of all names).
Gardiner in Victoria, Australia.
Ireland names in Lanarkshire & Midlothian, Scotland.
Gray & Jamieson Names in Unst Shetland Is.

I have just begun researching the Bryans from Galloon. My Great Great Great Grandfather was William Bryans who married Catherine Hicks. My great Great Grandmother was Charlotte Bryans. Charlotte emigrated to Australia around 1856 and married a Robert Bigley from Athlone in Hamilton and then settled in Warrnabool where she lived until her death in 1820. I would be very grateful if anyone has any information of the families life in Galloon before Charlotte left or could point me in the right direction.
Many thanks, Helen

Thanks to Hallmark for the link to Fermanagh Church records. I was able to locate Charlotte Bryans' from Dernish baptism record. Now to work out what happened to her between 1831 and 1854/55 when she emigrated to Australia!
