This is a family of OLIVERs who were based in the Parish of Urney, Co. Tyrone for at least 100 years. They earned their living as farmers and tradesmen. They were also generally associated with the Church of Ireland, and are not to be confused with a nearby family, also of the Parish of Urney, who were Presbyterian. To confuse things even further, this other family was connected to another James OLIVER (abt 1807-1892).

NOTE: Although we do not know who the father of James OLIVER (1803-1899) might be, a good starting point would be to look for an OLIVER male with a forename of James or John who was probably born about 1775. Two possibilities present themselves:

  • James OLIVER (b aft 1773) son of Rev. James OLIVER of Tattykeel or Cocheney, Parish of Kildress, Co. Tyrone, Ireland and Eleanor RICHARDSON. See: OLIVERs of Tattykeel SEE: Olivers of Tattykeel
  • James OLIVER Esq. (1769-1852) son of William OLIVER an Elizabeth STEEL. See: OLIVERs of Ennislare & Killynure.

A good way to trace many of them is by checking out the footnotes on the 1899 will of James OLIVER of Urney.
