Help with a marriage record please - McNAMEE or RYAN (convicts to Australia)
« on: Wednesday 01 January 14 01:38 GMT (UK) »
Hello there,

I am trying to confirm the marriage of the following people between 1830 and 1837  (before they were transported to Australia as convicts).

Christopher John McNamee to Mary (surname unknown)  or
Christopher John Ryan to Mary (surname unknown).

Mary's surname MIGHT be Dowling or Doyle or something similar.

I don't know where they were married but Dublin, Limerick or Westmeath could be possibilities.   Their ages would have been in late teens or in their 20's.

Any help would be VERY appreciated.


Thank you.

Hi sorry can,t help with records, but the Mc Namee name at this time had  many spellings
Mc Anena,Mc Anenay,Mc Anmee Mc Mee and Conway which are some I have come across locally and there are more! It was a family name who held sway in the parish of Ardstraw Tyrone ,and is still common there, some think its from the surname Farran? and is linked to the Saint Eugene, yours Shane
