Ulster is a Province so covers quite a large area. In order to trace the family you'll need a more exact location (parish is not actual townland) not just the county.

Where are they on 1841 census?
Away sorting out DNA matches... I may be gone for some time many years!

Hi Tonerbourne,I'm aToner too.... Barnarnd .
I believe the difference in pronunciation of said name's
Was secterianism... the Catholics pronounced it Barnard
The Protestant's Bernard.
