I have cross-referenced all the baptisms, marriages, burials and confirmations of Creggan Parish that relate to my family tree and that are available to me from a range of sources. My primary source was PRONI MIC 1-11. Some names are included only because they also reside in a significant townland - for example, Urker. Many of my notes are not much more than conjecture. Please take them with a grain of salt. In total, there are about 56 pages of transcriptions and notes, and several hundred names are mentioned.

My Notes

1807, Aug 4

1807, July 3

Anne

Mason, John & Anne

 

NOTE: The name MASON in the marriage records.

1808 Sep 25

James

Wallace, Caherwood

Probably Cregganbane.

1808 Dec 4

Jane

Smythe, John

1808, Dec 12

 

Anne Jane

Johnston, William

 

 

1809 Mar 25

Eleanor

Ball, Samuel Esq.

 

I suspect she is the daughter of Capt Samuel BALL & Mary HOWARD of Urker.

1809 Jul 2

Mary

Tipping, Andrew

 [Annaghvackey aka Rochdale]

I do not know where these TIPPINGs connect.  There were TIPPINGS at Mounthill and Castletown . They were landowners involved in leases with JACKSONs & COULTERs. In the mid-1700s. Mary COULTER, a sister of Andrew COULTER (d. 1775) of Cavananore married Samuel TIPPING. Both the naming patterns & geography would hint at a link with this Andrew TIPPING.

Thomas

Donaldson, John

 

 

1809, Dec 12

 

John

Jackson, John

 

This is not John JACKSON, son of George JACKSON (1718-1782) & Margaret O’LAUGHLIN (-1797)  of Lisnadill

1810 Sep 1

Richard

Johnston, John X James of Dorsey

 

I should look at the original again to better understand the “X” – but it would seem likely that this Richard is related to the JOHNSTONs of Dorsey who were confirmed at Creggan Church in 1824, as well as a later batch confirmed in 1833.

NOTE: The name Richard JOHNSTON is of interest because of the earlier Richard JOHNSTON who married Anne JACKSON, daughter of George JACKSON & Margaret O’Laughlin of Urker in 1767. See also the baptism of George JOHNSTON of Dorsey, son of James & Ann.

1810 Oct 7

George

Stephens, Thomas of Crossmaglen

 

Probably the son of Thomas STEPHENS and Barbara JACKSON. He died aft 1889.

1810 Nov 23

 

Mary

Wallace of [Caherwood?]

 

Probably Cregganbane.

1810, Oct 17

 

Margaret

Ball, Samuel Esq.

Urker

She is the daughter of Capt Samuel BALL & Mary HOWARD of Urker. Probate of the Will of Margaret Ball late of Castle-road Dundalk County Louth Spinster who died 14 December 1898 granted at Armagh to the Reverend Joseph G. Rainsford D.D. Rector of Dundall and John William Turner Esquire both of Dundalk. She gave £1000 to grand-niece Annie E.A. JOHNSTONE plus her house and furniture...other legatees

1810, Oct 30

 

Mary

Jackson, Richard

Tullyvallen – possibly – later Urker, possibly.

SEE: Burial Richard JACKSON of Liscalgot 1848, Feb 17. There may be a connection to the line of JACKSONs that I am following – possibly a cousin. In 1825, a Richard JACKSON was a tenant of Tullyvallen (one of Capt. REID’s tenants). Also, a James GROSET who was possibly the husband of Jane JACKSON lived there as well.

1811 Mar 20

Mary Laughlan

Stephens, Michael

 

 The middle name of Laughlan is interesting because of the maiden name of Margaret O’LAUGHLIN (1720-1797), the grandmother of Barbara JACKSON who married a Thomas STEPHENS.

1812 May 18

John

Wallis, John

Loughilly

There was other text that was difficult to read.

1811 Jun 2

Mary

Donnelson, John

 

Aka DONALDSON.. Curiously, I have her as a daughter of Joseph (1773-1838). This needs a 2nd look.

A George KERFOOT resided at Urker.

1813, Jan 27

 

Margaret Murphy

Coulter, Peggy

 

Unmarried.. I don’t know who she may be, but one possibility is Margaret COULTER, daughter of John COULTER & Jane BARTLEY. Elsewhere in the register is notes: “Margaret Murphy dau Margaret Ann of [?] Coulter unmarried

1814, Mar 13

 

Graham

Johnston, John & Jane

 

NOTE: A Graham JOHNSTON is mentioned in the 1817 inventory of John JACKSON’s assets. He is too young to be this Graham JOHNSTON, but he could be an uncle of his.

1814, June 29

 

Samuel

Stephens, Thomas & Sarah

 

NOTE:  I am wondering if Thomas STEPHENS, left with three children, married soon after the death of his wife Barbara and this represents a 2nd family.

Ball, Samuel Esq.

Given that a Thomas BALL (1696-1742 married a Grace ACTON, and there were numerous descendents of his named Samuel, I would expect it is likely that Jane Grace would be of their descendants.

Harriet

Donaldson, Joseph & Mary

Joseph DONALDSON (1773-1838) of Sheetrim.

Rector John Jones.

NOTE: Armagh Clergy and Parishes Clergy. Parish of Dunany: 1824 — John Jones, pres. by the Lord Chancellor, the Earl of Drogheda being insane, June 28, inst. June 30 (D.B.), ord. D. 1816 ; P. 1817 ; ent. T.C.D. 4 July, 1810, aged 16, son of William J. " generosus," b. in Co. Louth, B.A. — ; he res. in 1841. The Register includes the bap. of the
children of Rev. John and Susan Jones as follows : — William, Oct. 1818 ; Susanna, Sep. 10, 1820; Ellen Hamilton, Sep. 1822; John, June 1, 1825 ; Alicia, Mar. 26, 1826. The P. Will of " Rev. John Jones, Dunany, and Isle of Man " was proved in 1849.

An earlier Rev. John JONES has interesting connections with other family names: 1768— John Field {V.B.), son of Rev. Thomas F. (see Kilmore Curates) by Miss Donaldson ; m. Mary, dau. of Rev. John Jones, Preb. Mullabrack. His dau. Anne m. Rev. James Graham, R. of Pomeroy.

Donaldson, John

NOTE: The curious thing here is that this birth is in my tree but has Joseph DONALDSON as her father. If she is the child of John (and I didn’t make a transcription error), then I expect that Joseph DONALDSON (b 1773) of Sheetrim was her uncle. It is also curious that entries before this one give the name of the mother. If this is the John DONALDSON who I think it is, then he was the author of A Historical & Statistical Account of the Barony ofUpper Fews.

This is in because of the JACKSON-HAWKINS-DALY connection. I am still trying to figure out how Sir Thomas Jackson & Villiers Alweyn Caesar Hawkins were said to be “cousins”.

1836, Mar 13

 

Anne

Donaldson, William & Harriet

Clohog

The family moved to New Brunswick, Canada. Her mother Harriet WALLACE (daughter of Robert Grenville WALLACE who inherited the family farm in Clohog) was born in Calcutta. Her father b. abt 1814. They married in 1831. I have a birth date of February 23, 1837, a census gives her birth date as 10 or 11 Feb 1837 – so something is amiss. Perhaps 1836 is actually 1838 and I misread it.

1836 Feb 9?

Eliza?

Gilmore, Samuel & Jane

Liscalgot

Daughter  of Samuel GILMORE (1795-1868) & Jane COULTER. I wonder if this was a baby Eliza that didn’t live long as there is another Eliza in this family who married Andrew Coulter Bradford JACKSON who was born 25 April 1846 (probably).

1837 Jun 18

Margaret

Bailie, Robert & Mary

Tray [(Parish of Donaghmoyne), Co. Monaghan.]

Was baptised by John BAILIE. He is probably a descendant of the Robert BAILIE of Tray who was a son of John & Ann BAILIE (1730-1810) & probably related to the Rev. BAILIE.

1837, Sept 3

 

William Jackson

Stephens, William & Maria

Liscalgot Farmer

 Son of Samuel GILMORE (1795-1868) & Jane COULTER.

1843, Oct 1

Sophia

McMath, Andrew & Sarah

Urker Gentleman & Farmer

One correspondent who follows McMATH families believes that the mother was a Sarah JACKSON. It may be that Andrew McMATH is Andrew Foulie McMATH (1814-1876), a manager of the Belfast Bank in Castleblayney, or his father who had the same name and was a JP. Sophia Kathleen McMATH married a . In the 1901 Census, a Sarah McMATH was a widow born in Monaghan age 64 in Coolshannagh, hence b 1837. This would be the next generation, her husband likely a brother of Sophia. One lost record said that Sarah JACKSON was b 1814 in Sterling Scotland and died in 1901 in Castleblayney. There was also a son: Andrew Jackson McMATH. NOTE: This all needs more work.
