Hi Kiltaglassan & adhadowey,

Thanks for your replies.

Kiltaglassan -  thanks for the place name link, it will handy as I am guilty of having skipped some of the background research & reading I need to do.

adhadowey  -  thanks for the links to Martha Dillon/Henry Robinson - she does look like a sister for my James Dillon.  I need to try to find the baptism records (or other records) to check on the mother of both of them.
I did find a copy of the marriage return for James & Jane but lost my source detail so terrific timing.  Yes, I did wonder about Jane's religion but I seem to remember reading something about people of other religions getting married in a Church of Ireland church (or Catholic church) to have their marriages registered.  I hope I remembered correctly!  I did guess she was Methodist as she was buried under the Methodist Rites.

Regards,

thomas2sam

In general marriages usually take place in the bride's church after which the couple attend the groom's church. In the case of Methodist it may be that either or both families or even the couple themselves converted from another religion.
Away sorting out DNA matches... I may be gone for some time many years!

Hi adhadowey,

Thanks for your reply.  The second part I didn't know about & hadn't considered.  Food for thought.

Regards,
