 John OLIVER of Tullymore. He was probably a farmer with interests in linen. This Tullymore is in the Parish of Eglish, Barony Tiranny. NOTE: I had assumed for several years that this was the townland of Tullymore, Parish Armagh, Co. Armagh – but this deed makes it clear that it is the townland of Tullymore, Parish Eglish, Co. Armagh. There is Tullymore Agowan; Tullymore Etra; and Tullymore Otra. They are in the northerly part of the parish, and Tullymore Etra is on the borde of the townland of Eglish.A quick glance at the list of townlands in the Parish of Eglish reveals many other townland names associated with OLIVERs in this time frame and for a least a century earlier. Chief among them are Mullintur, Drumsallen, Lisnafeedy & Tullysarren.
 The connection of Samuel OLIVER to the OLIVERs of Tullymore is particularly interesting. There are no direct hits with data, so I will mention the clues: We know from the Ballybay Church records that there was a Samuel OLIVER who married a Mary WILLIAMSON and had three children in the 1830s. We also know that a further connection to our line of OLIVERs and Ballybay existed because Eliza OLIVER (mother of Sir Thomas JACKSON) daughter of Benjamin OLIVER whose brothers likely had leases at Tullymore also got married in the Ballybay Church. The Minterturn, Co. Tyrone baptisms also record a Samuel OLIVER (husband of Jane ALLEN who had previously married a WILSON) who seemed to be residing in Co. Down, but had three children baptized in Tyrone (1877-1885). Another Samuel OLIVER had a daughter Margret Anne OLIVER who married a John JACKSON in 1854. A celebrated elder of Ballybay was also a Samuel OLIVER (1843-1917).
