Help with place names
« on: Sunday 20 September 20 23:33 BST (UK) »
Hi Everyone,

I'm having an issue locating a few birthplaces in Ireland I have come across from an 1851 census from Scotland.

Matthew Gillies, 67 (born 1784), at Balahchantie, Ireland.
Catherine M Alister, Wife, 48 (born 1803), at Moy Antrim.
Effy Gillies, Daughter, 24 (born 1827), at Kilmora, Ireland.
James Gillies, Son, 16 (born 1835, at Amory Anoin.

Any help would be much appreciated!

Can you link to the actual page?
Or give the address in Scotland, so we can find it ourselves?
Coffey, Cummins, Cummins [Skirke, Laois], Curran, Dillon [Clare], Fogarty [Garran, Laois/Tipp], Hughes, Keshan (Keeshan), Loughman [Killadooley, Laois], Mallon [Armagh], Malone, Markham [Caherkine, Clare], McKeon(e) [Sligo/Kilkenny/Waterford], McNamara, Meagher, Prescott [Kilkenny/Waterford/Wexford?], Rafferty, Ryan, Sullivan, Tobin

Moy sits on the border of Co. Tyrone and Co. Armagh, and is not in Antrim.  I would be interested in seeing the original image if you have it.

Have you looked at the census image on Scotlands People or is this information from a transcription?
 
Scotlands People (pay site) is the only online site that has the images.

1871 Census confirms Catherine's birthplace as County Antrim.

Is that from an image or  a transcription?

A transcription, but likely that is pretty clear.

transcriptions can be useful but they should not be relied on. The image is the only way to be sure.

Here's the image of P of B from the 1851

Thanks for the image.  Mother's says Moy, Antrim.  Second child says Amoy, Antrim I believe.  There is an Armoy in County Antrim.
