Witnesses: James DOBBIN [10] & Leonard SIMPSON [11] of town & Co Armagh.

 



[1] Matthew or Michael SEAVER of Bellaghy. NOTE: A Nicholas SAVER was registered in the 1663 Hearth Rolls Records at Ballyaghy. I would expect him to be a relation if not also an ancestor.

[2] Bellaghy . I expect this is in Eglish Parish and is the same townland as the one called Ballyaghy. NOTE: A Nicholas SAVER was registered in the 1663 Hearth Rolls Records at Ballyaghy. I would expect him to be a relation if not also an ancestor.

[3] Robert JACKSON. NOTE: I will add his data later after I have done the JACKSON side of this story.

[4] AKA Ballinahonebeg also known as Ballynahonebeg is a townland in the Parish of Lisnadill bordered by Farmacaffley, The Kennedies, Ballyards, Moneypatrick. Umgola touches at the northern tip. All these townlands are significant with respect to several other OLIVER leases.

[5] Charles SEAVER.  According to the 1782 DEED: 242429, Sarah SEAVER was his widow. NOTE: In 1762, a will for a Charles SEAVER was probated. His wife's name was Sarah Hewetson. SOURCE Email July 10, 2009 from BG Wright: This information is found in the FHL film no: 1279330, Item 15, Title of record: Seaver Family which was compiled by Philip Crossle "in the year 1909". Also, there is a pedigree chart of the Seaver Family on the FHL film no: 259178, Transcript No: T822  which is where I originally found this information. NOTE: A Nicholas SAVER was registered in the 1663 Hearth Rolls Records at Ballyaghy. I would expect him to be a relation if not also an ancestor.

[6] David VERNER. SEE: Also 1750 Sept 8 SEAVER-VERNER DEED: 97451. I have not done any work on this, but VERNER is a name that crops up in many leases both in Armagh & Monaghan.

[7] Samuel JOHNSTON. NOTE: A James JOHNSTON shows up in the 1663 Hearth Rolls at Ballynahonmor. Possibly a relation of some ilk.

[8] Matthew SEAVER. I wonder if he married a relation of JOHNSTON?

[9] Richard SEAVER: Father of Matthew or Michael SEAVER. Died before 1772.

[10] James DOBBIN. In 1711, a Mary OLIVER married a James DOBBIN. If there is any relation, it is more likely that this James DOBBIN is a son of that James DOBBIN – given the time frame that would have the James DOBBIN sr. being at least in his mis-80s. Mary OLIVER had a brother John OLIVER at Tullymore and a brother Andrew at Newtownhamilton.  There may have been other siblings. Their father was likely William OLIVER, probably of Mullintur, Co. Armagh.

[11] Leonard SIMPSON. I don’t know yet who he was. NOTE: James OLIVER, a son of Benjamin OLIVER of Lislooney married Letitia SIMPSON on June 17 1830. SOURCE:  Belfast Newsletter. At Killeen cottage on Thursday 17th inst by the Rev P. S. HENRY, James OLIVER of Lislooney to Letitia, younger daughter of the late William SIMPSON of Cavancaw
