HALL/MADDEN/IRWIN/IRVINE - Co. Tyrone
« on: Tuesday 05 October 10 14:07 BST (UK) »
Hi. Im trying to find more about my Hall/Madden family from Tyrone. William Hall married Mary Madden about 1831 in Tyrone. They had 1 son Albert born Ireland and then moved to Coatbridge Scotland where they had more children. One of which was Elestra Hall b1942. Unusual name and finding it hard to find her. Williams' family had the name Irvine and I think he had a sister Alicia Ann. Mary Maddens' mothers' maiden name was Irwin. I would be most grateful for any info and perhaps to get in touch with distant family in Ireland. p.s. I'm in Glasgow area. Thanx

"Elestra" Hall's name is possibly Electra.

Unfortunately the dates you have are before the start of civil registration in Ireland and you need both their religion and where they lived (parish if not actual townland) to find any surviving church records. See Introduction to Irish Records-

Is this a Protestant family? Madden in Tyrone is usually Catholic but Hall and Irwin/Irvine are mostly Protestant.

I have done some research on Protestant Madden family in south Clonfeacle near the Armagh border. Hall and Irwin aren't common in that part of Clonfeacle but are very common in neighbouring Loughgall. That Madden family as well as the nearby Hall and Irwin families have some distinctive naming patterns. If you have enough names then I might be able to tell you if it looks plausible.

If you have the family's occupations in Scotland as well as their fathers' occupations from Scottish death records then that could help with geography.

Hello - your reference to some hall families in Tyrone has given me some hope that there might be away of finding a reference to the lives, or the marriage of Alexander Hall and Susan Smythe in the early 1820s. Their daughter Sarah Hall was baptised in Donaghmore, Tyrone on 16 Feb 1824, but the family may then have moved, as I dont have baptism records of Sarah's sisters Mary and Jane. Sarah Mary and Jane all moved to Australia between 1850 and 1860.  Is Donaghmore near Loughall?
Thank you, fingers  crossed!

Hello,

Not sure if this will be seen as it's an old thread....I am also researching this family - Wm Hall and Mary Madden are my 3rd great grandparents. You mentioned Elestra Hall -- I am wondering if this is the Alicia Ann that you referred to?

btw, I am in Canada.

Hi Laura, I believe that Alicia Ann was William Halls sister as we have a family bible with inscription from Alicia Ann to her brother William. Elestra is a nightmare to find. I can only find her on the 1851 census in Coatbridge, Scotland. You can email me at - (*) to discuss further. Id love to share info.
