There is mounting evidence that the OLIVERs of Lislooney were closely related – at least at the 1st cousin level - in the early 1700s to the OLIVERs of Farmacaffley aka Sherranmcaghully, Parish Of Eglish, Co. Armagh and to the OLIVERs of Tattykeel, Parish Of Kildress, and hence to several other lines - including the OLIVERs of Killynure. I will be writing a post about the suspected links, and their implications for future research.

James and Benjamin OLIVER of Lislooney

Lislooney
One Km is equal to 2 cm on this scale. Lislooney is above the 6cm mark, near the top of this photo. Derryhaw is above the 9cm mark near the bottom. Other lands that Olivers held leases to: Breaghy and Dillay, are between the 6 cm & 9 cm. mark. Killilea is just out of range in this shot - it is about 3-4 km North East of Lislooney, and is a town where OLIVERs lived in the mid-1800s, and continue to live there today. It is also where Andrew Bradford OLIVER of Killynure and his family are buried..

 

 

NOTE: The Presbyterian congregation of Lislooney was originally connected with Minterburn under the name of Kinnaird. It became a separate parish in 1714, but did not have its own minister itself. Births and marriages are likely to have been recorded in other parishes. Sometimes a nearby parish was used; other times a parish where other relations had roots. My personal hunch is that several of the early 1700s births and marriages recorded at 1st Presbyterian, City of Armagh are likely to be connected to the Olivers of Lislooney, as are my Olivers of Killynure.

NOTE: I have also included a few other OLIVERs who are neither from Lislooney nor near the Parish of Tynan because they are useful in sorting out relationships.

Oliver, Mr.

To be let from 1 November next, for either lives or years as may be agreed upon, the townland of Lislooney, in the parish of Tynan and county of Armagh, containing about 140 acres, English Measure, which is remarkable fine land either for tillage or pasture, and capable of being made one of the finest farms in Ireland, as there is plenty of limestone upon it, and most excellent turf bog and marle joining it; there is upwards of 12 acres of it marled this year; it might suit a gentleman in the linen business, as it is well watered by a  river which runs almost round it; the situation is beautiful, in a most lovely country, half a mile from the church, and the dissenting meeting house upon the farm. Proposals to be directed to Nicholas Johnson, Esq.; at Woodpark[3] near Tynan, or at Tandragee. Mr. Oliver, who lives near it, will show the farm. There is also some houses, and orchard, and meadow upon it. N.B. If agreeable to the tenant, the Rent may be fined down the half, Tandragee, August 7, 1773.

? NOTE: I have a number of conjectures about various James OLIVERs in the footnotes at http://www.thesilverbowl.com/documents/1785July29_OLIVER-OLIVER.html Because the townland of Breaghey is on the southern border of Lislooney, I am going to hazard a guess that this is the James OLIVER son of Benjamin OLIVER of Lislooney. SOURCE: Deed 534280  April 1824 mentions James OLIVER of City of Armagh, merchant a son of Benjamin OLIVER who had a lease on lands in Lislooney. He would also have some relation to Arthur OLIVER.

NOTE: In the Marriage Bonds for Armagh a marriage between Andrew OLIVER and Esther OSBURN in 1777.

Tynan Ploughing Match - Belfast News-Letter

At this time, the prospect from Woodpark Hill was truly delightful and picturesque – the immense concourse which clothed its sides rising in the form of an extensive amphitheatre; underneath the busy ploughman preparing for the contest, and some contending with restive horses. Adjoining, it laid the demesne of Fellows Hall, the seat of T. Knox Armstrong, Esq. and on a rising ground in the same direction, the village of Killylea; to the right, the venerable Cathedral of Armagh, showed its elevated spire, and the distant prospect in this direction was almost inimitable; to the left lay Mount Irwin, the highly improved and handsome demesne of William Irwin, Esq. The eye was next attracted by the, well cultivated forms of Messrs. Oliver and Roberts of Lislooney, and the village of Tynan, adjoining the beautiful and extensive demesnes of Sir James M. Strong, Bart. And the Earl of Caledon. To the south, as far as the horizon, they are fine champaign country, apparently well improved. NOTE: This is just a snippet from a longer article.

TYNAN FARMING SOCIETY. – The annual ploughing match of the Tynan branch, N. E. farming society, was held on the 24th ult. on the Glebe lands at Tynan. On the signal being given, 25 competitors started in admirable style; and so well was the whole work executed that the judges –Messrs M. Pringle of Grange, Val B. Fair of Caledon, and James Wilson of Glasslough – had a great difficulty in selecting the most meritorious lots; between the best two of which they were unable to decide – so the silver cup with £2 for first prize, was again to be contested. – Mr. and Mrs Oliver of Lislooney, had prepared a very sumptuous entertainment, which was dispensed with an unsparing hand to every respectable individual who either was an acquaintance or known to come from a distance. At five o’clock, about 60 persons, composed principally the neighbouring gentry and respectable farmers, sat down to dinner – Maxwell Cross of Dartry, Esq. in the chair. After dinner, the usual national patrioticle complimentary and agricultural toasts, were given. The adjudications were then read by the secretary – 1st and 2nd to be ploughed again, by Messrs. John Stitt of Tynan, and R. Johnston of Deryyha – 3rd, John Sanderson, ploughman to Mr. E. Kilpatrick – 4th, Samuel Beattie, ploughman to Mr. John Martin – 5th, John Gregory, ploughman to Mr. James Morrow – 6th, Thomas Heney, ploughman to T.K.
