Hello

I realise this is a posting from 3 years ago but I recently found some information on GRO NI Online records which might be helpful

1900 marriage record of John and Sarah. I tried some of the family names and got a hit for James Boyce as John's father.

Using James as the father's names I found two John's ...

Civil Birth Boyce John Arthur 1873 Co. Derry
Church Baptism Boyce John 1876 Co. Derry

John b.1873 has a mother named Nancy McIntyre ...the name of his 2nd daughter.He was baptised in the parish of Aghadowey

It was common at the time to name the 1st son and daughter after the father's parents...the 2nd son and daughter after the mother's parents. In this case the 1st child was named after her mother...maybe the 2nd child was named after her paternal grandmother.

Here are James and Nancy in the 1901 census...Letterloan is close to Macosquin
http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1901/Londonderry/Letterloan/Cashel/1517653/

The John b.1876 has a mother named Mary Ann

This looks like them in the 1901 census...
http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1901/Londonderry/Lower_Liberties/Shortallon/1538542/

John's age is given as 21...which is a few years out (not uncommon,though the mistake is usually in someone older...but it depends who gave the information We know he can't be your John who's living with his in-laws in 1901.

The familysearch site has a record of a marriage of
James Boyce  to Nancy Mc Intyre
12 Nov 1868 in Coleraine, Londonderry, Ireland
Groom's Father's name   Mathew Boyce
Bride's Father's name  William Mc Intyre
 
Mary 1869 daughter of James Boyce and ANN Mc Intyre (Familysearch record 27 Jun 1869)
Margaret 1871 daughter of James Boyce and ANN Mc Intyre (FS 26 Aug 1871)
John Arthur 1873 son of James Boyce  and Nancy Mc Intyre (FS 26 Jun 1873)
Jane  1875  daughter of James Boyce  and Nancy Mc Intyre
James 1876 son of James Boyce  and NAN Mc Intyre (FS 02 Dec 1876)
Samuel 1879 son of  James Boyce  and Nancy Mc Intyre
Letitia 1881 daughter of James Boyce  and Nancy Mc Intyre
Matthew 1885 son  of James Boyce  and Nancy Mc Intyre

Here are James and Ann (Nancy) living in Coleraine in 1911
According to this they had 12 children...11 living
In the 1901 census there are Martha,Thomas and Robert whom I haven't found...that would account for 11

- Martha's date of birth is 9th Apr 1883
- Matthew's date of birth is 18th Apr 1885
- Matthew T was registered as being born on 21st July 1887
- Thomas Wilson was born on 1st April 1890

This would account for all 12 children that have been previously mentioned. I have found no record of Robert's birth being registered (in the Coleraine).

Also - currently on the Camus-Juxta-Bann Church website is a photo of the Roll of Honour for 1939-1945. Robert, Neal, Cochrane, Edward, Samuel and Martha Boyce are all named. This is the link - http://www.camus-juxta-bann.org/

Hope this is helpful.
