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

Jackson, John

Creggan

Jones, Anne

Agbold, Co. Wicklow

1807

Banns of Marriage between John JACKSON of the Parish and Anne JONES of the Parish of Agbold, in the County of Wicklow

2 Aug 1807 by me Joseph JENKINS, curate

9 Aug 1807 by me R. JOHNSON, rector

12 Aug 1807 by me Joseph JENKINS, curate.

NOTE: The name R. JOHNSON is not included in the names of rectors on the scroll in Creggan Church. He was likely Richard JOHNSTON. See Burke’s The General Armory of England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales:

JOHNSTON (cos Armagh and Dublin, and the City of Dublin; confirmed to Rev Richard JOHNSTON, M.A. Rector of Kilmore, Diocese of Armagh, descended from William JOHNSTON who served at the siege of Londonderry, 1689, and to the other descendants of the said WILLIAM JOHNSTON). Ar a saltire sa. as betw. in chief a trefoil slipped vert, and in base a heart ensigned with an imperial crown ppr on a chief gu. Three cushions or. Crest: An arm in armour embowed, the hand grasping a sword all ppr. charged on the elbow with a spur-rowel gu. Nunquam non partus.This would mean he had Scots roots.

Jackson, John

Creggan

Jones, Anne

Agbold, Co. Wicklow

1807, Aug 12

In the presence of William JOHNSTON of Clough, Wexford & John JONES, Union of Ferns, Wexford.

NOTE: It is possible that this John JACKSON was a grandson of George JACKSON & Margaret O’LAUGHLIN. Or there may be some other relationship with the other JACKSONs of the region. It is significant that the exact same record is recorded in the Glenealy Church of Ireland, Co. Wicklow.

Jackson, Wm.

Clough, Co. Wexford

Mason, Mary

Union of Kilmore, Co. Wexford

1807, Aug 13

In the presence of William JOHNSTON of Clough, Wexford & John JONES, Union of Ferms, Wexford.

NOTE: It is possible that William JACKSON was a grandson of George JACKSON & Margaret O’LAUGHLIN. Or there may be some other relationship with the other JACKSONs of the region. It is significant that the exact same record is recorded in the Glenealy Church of Ireland, Co. Wicklow.

Reed, Robert

Branagan, Mary

1813 Oct 12

NOTE: A William REED b 1814 was probably their son.

Law, John

Woodlawn

Crawley, Margaret

Cullaville

1814 Apr 9

Clappins [?],Thomas

Monaghan

Gillmer, Martha

Creggan

1815, Mar 24

NOTE: I am unsure what this record was all about. The one beneath makes more sense.

Stephens, Thomas

Creggan

Gilmer, Martha

Creggan

1815, Mar 24

NOTE: A Thomas Stephens married Barbara JACKSON (daughter of David JACKSON & Margaret BRADFORD). She died young leaving three children – the youngest born in 1813. It is possible that this is a second marriage – if he is the same man. I do not know yet where Martha GILMORE fits in. There is a burial for a Martha STEPHENS of Cloghog  in 1856, when she was 72 years old (hence b. 1784).

Johnston, James

McLean, Anne

1815 Apr 28

NOTE: See Baptisms for a number of their children born 1816-1827.

NOTE: The dates for Sarah Cannon DONALDSON, daughter of Joseph (1773-1837) and Mary are a fit, but she died a spinster. John and Sarah OGLE emigrated to Australia on Marchioness of Bute arriving 07 Jan 1842. Email, 27/07/2006 L. FRIEND

Pratt, John

Urker, Creggan

McNickle, Sarah

Urker, Creggan

1839, Feb 19

This entry is here because of the townland reference. She was the daughter of John & Eleanor McNICKLE and would have been 20 years old at the time of her marriage (based on baptismal and confirmation records)
