Sophia Waller marriage 1850
« on: Friday 04 September 20 17:03 BST (UK) »
On the Irish genealogy site there is a record of a marriage for Sophia Waller to Andrew Brown on the 22nd April 1850. In the parish of Knockbride.  I am having trouble reading where Andrew is from and both of their fathers first names. Would some one be able to have a look for me. Thank you.

The 2 fathers look like James Brown and Thomas (Thos) Waller:

The two residences look like Cornavea and Drumhilla... there are various Co. Cavan possibilities for such locations, but given the Knockbride Church of Ireland context, my most immediate guess is that these are Cornaveagh and Drumhillagh townlands in the civil parish of that name.

Edited to add: Griffith's Valuation for the area (local print date 1856-7) doesn't show a Thomas Waller at Drumhillagh in Knockbride parish, but there is a Henry Waller there (one of the marriage witnesses is a Henry Waller). I can't see any Browns in Cornaveagh.
