Miscellaneous family trees of  OLIVERs from Armagh, Monaghan & Tyrone



Descendants of Robert  OLIVER as recorded at St. Marks, City of Armagh. NOTE: A death cert for an Eliza OLIVER (1820-1880) is a possible match for this Eliza. Her husband, Robert OLIVER, is described as a gardener. She died at Bondbrook (aka Bandbrook), Armagh. A record of her burial is in the St. Mark's Church of Ireland records.

Descendants of William  OLIVER – gardener – records of Armagh Church of Ireland

 1   William  OLIVER b: 1795   +Anne GRAHAM  m: 04 Dec 1823 in Armagh Cathedral

........ 2   Robert  OLIVER b: 20 Mar 1825  NOTE: He would be about the right age (although perhaps a little young), occupation, and location to be the Robert OLIVER, gardener, husband of Eliza (1820-1880) - see above. Just to keep us on our toes, there is probably more than one Robert OLIVER with a wife named Eliza in the same area and time frame.

........ 2   William  OLIVER b: 21 Jan 1827 

........ 2   James  OLIVER b: 23 Jan 1831 in Armagh NOTE: The dates of this family as reported in the cenus are all over the map - not the same in 1901 (b 1825) and 1911 (b. 1839) when they were recorded in House 10 in Umgola. It is worth bearing in mind that this family was essentially illiterate. It may also be why they were the only Protestant OLIVERs in the 1911 Census whose names cannot also be found amongst the signatories of the 1912 Ulster Covenant.

............  +Sarah McCANN  m: 20 Sep 1856 in Armagh Cathedral, Co. Armagh NOTE: James OLIVER was recorded as a widower in 1911, but there is no recorded death cert for her.
