The area was a mixture of religions (mainly Church of Ireland, Roman Catholic and Presbyterian)- most of the non-Catholic families were of Scottish Presbyterian stock.

The churches are 1st Kilrea Presbyterian Church and 2nd Kilrea Presbyterian Church. There were also Presbyterian churches outside Kilrea at Boveedy, Tamlaght O'Crilly, etc.
Away sorting out DNA matches... I may be gone for some time many years!

hi,

just came across this McIlfatrick thread. I don't know if there is any connection but here goes :

My great-grandfather was John Mullan, Claragh, Kilrea.   he had a brother
their parents were Patrick Mullen and Jane McElfatrick married 1864

Jane's father was Hugh McElfatrick

When my granny was alive ( she died about 23 years ago ) she would have talked about a James McIlfatrick, who would probably have been a contemporary of hers. In fact I think he was related but it is so long since I looked at that branch of the tree that I am just talking off the top of my head here !!!  - just looked up and old notebook - granny had a 2nd cousin called James McIlfatrick. ( At a quick guess, he was the son of John Mullans cousin Hugh ).

Hi,

I'm another who has just found this thread. I'm part of the "Scottish" family, and can confirm that they all emigrated to Victoria or, in Hugh's case, South Australia. During their time in Scotland they adopted the name Kilpatrick.

The family came from the townland of Crossland, and I've been trying to link my ancestor John Mcilfatrick to the other families of that name in the district. There are some interesting connections through church records, etc., but the information available seems too incomplete to reliably link him to any of them.

If anyone here can shed any light, I would be most grateful.

Hi
Just recently found this site and find it interesting since I am a distant cousin of Mary Ann Murphy that was married to John McIlfatrick.
We are First cousins 3X rem. She was a granddaughter of my 3X Great Grandfather James Murphy. James was born in Londonderry in 1794. His eldest child, Mary (Mollie) Murphy married a Archibald Murphy in 1849 in Kilrea (Mary Ann's parents ) and the family stayed in Ireland while James brought the rest of the family over to Canada and settled in Southern Ontario, Chatham area. I would be interested in contacting one of the McIlfatrick clan. I know there were some in Ballymaconnelly

Hi,

 John got married in 2nd Kilrea Church Feb 1876 to Mary Ann Murphy,her father listed as Michael Murphy( Labourer) and his as Hugh McIlfatrick (farmer).

Their Children seem to be Hugh b.26 feb 1878 d.15th feb 1949,Archibald b. 6th Sept 1880 d.1964,Mary-Anne born 1883.

Hugh buried with James McIlfatrick d.1904 in 1st Kilrea Church but I cannot find how they are related, the gravestone is erected by a nephew also called Hugh.

I am a first cousin 3x removed of Mary Ann Murphy who married John McIlfatrick.
I have a Murphy Family Tree going back to Mary Ann's grandfather James Murphy.
On the tree, Mary Ann's parents are listed as Archibald Murphy and Mary (Mollie) Murphy d/o James Murphy and Elizabeth Reid. Archibald and Mollie were married 29 Nov 1849 in Kilrea.
You have the name Michael as her father and I have Archibald, so maybe both names are for same person. I have no paperwork other than Family Tree.
Hope this helps someone.

thx
