Marriage Lookup Request - BRENNAN of Island Magee / Larne 1790 onwards
« on: Saturday 22 September 18 13:45 BST (UK) »
Hello, Could somebody please help me find out who my ancestor married.

THOMAS BRENNAN (surname may have variants Brannan, Brynan etc) born Island Magee, Antrim in 1773.
His parents were Alexander Brennan and Abigail Wilson.

I have found 2 sons of THOMAS BRENNAN namely John (b.1801) and James (b.1804) via Ancestry public trees, But no one seems to know the name of the wife of Thomas Brennan.
Please search for his marriage for period 1792 to 1801.  Presbyterians.
Many thanks  :)

Thank you Sinann.  Appreciated.  I will probably have to visit PRONI in Belfast, to do research, but that won't be for a few years, as I live in Western Australia.  Had a brief look at the info, and will read more extensively tomorrow.  Looks like the CI records don't start until after 1825 for Islandmagee.
Regards, Liz  :)

Hi, its just possible you might be disappointed, the downloadable Guide_to_church_records by PRONI was last updated fully to the end of 2009, it was as complete as possible then. Do your links differ in content. The PRONI lists mean leaving out tombstones the earlist remaining church records for islandmagee., in existence start with 1821 births/baptisms. 

The downloadable file https://www.nidirect.gov.uk/sites/default/files/publications/Guide_to_church_records.pdf
ISLANDMAGEE, CO. ANTRIM
C.I. Islandmagee (Connor diocese) [Earliest registers destroyed in Dublin]
Baptisms, 1879-1917; burials, 1878-1915; vestry minutes, 1879-99.
MIC1/87
P. 1st Islandmagee
Baptisms, 1829-1935; marriages, 1829-1905; marriage notices, 1953-6; communicants’ roll, 1874-1903; committee minutes with printed stipend lists, 1859-75.
MIC1P/326; CR/3/64
P. 2nd Islandmagee
Baptisms, 1854-1937; marriages, 1848-1933.
MIC1P/337
RC under Larne
R.C. Carrickfergus, Larne and Ballygowan (Down and Connor diocese)
Baptisms, 1821-83; marriages, 1821-82; indexes to baptisms and marriages, 1828-1960.
MIC1D/68, 90   
if the above is complete rather than just the PRONI’s own records only., the only good news is a volunteer exists who goes to PRONI and charges for photocopies etc not usually for his time as a hobby.
