There were about 3500 people called Murphy and 5000 people called Brown in those 2 areas, so it is not common in comparison, surely?

Interesting - most of the things that I read about the surname stated that it almost exclusively English or Scottish (which doesn't, of course, mean that an English or Scottish "Armour" couldn't be living in NI), and that there were not that many living in NI. I'm going a century back from the time you're talking about, so I'm sure there were fewer then. But maybe more than I thought?
