These are the OLIVERs who signed the 1912 covenant to indicate that they opposed Home Rule. The people who signed this covenant all wanted Ulster to remain part of the UK. Their signatures on this document can be useful when matched with instances of their signatures on deeds. It is interesting as much for those OLIVERs who signed as for those who didn't (It wasn't completely along sectarian lines). NOTE: If anyone can add to My notes, this would help me to sort out which ones are near relations to each other. Thanks.

She signed using a mark. In 1916, interred age 54 (b. 1862). C. of I. I suspect that she was unmarried. In the St. Marks BMDs, there are 3 OLIVERs on Callan Street. I suspect that Mary OLIVER (1814-1882) was her mother.
