Documents Organized by Family Names
BIRCH of Birchgrove This page shows the ways that the BIRCH family links in to the JACKSON family. It is a pretty boring page, unless you are really dedicated. October 10, 2004
Bradford family of Co. Louth The BRADFORDs of Co. Louth that connect to the family tree of Sir Thomas JACKSON reach back to the early 1700s. At this stage, I have more questions than answers. September 30, 2008
Bradford, Samuel & events connecting him to Cavananore This page details the links between Samuel BRADFORD and Cavananore. It was a multigenerational saga of family conflict. January 17, 2010
BROWNE Family Crests and Clues to our Origins August 4, 2004
BROWNEs in Rossory Graveyard, Enniskillen This memorial includes members of our family (as long as my original data is accurate). I have created two tables beneath for easier analysis. The first is sorted in order of the names mentioned. The second is sorted by date. It would be wonderful if anyone going to Enniskillen could get a photo of this so we can see the crest.

BROWNE - Ancestry of Thompson BROWN (1837-1915) Working backwards from the pretty well known to the less thoroughly known and then back in time to utter darkness, here goes. I have a suspicion that my great-grandfather Thompson BROWN[E] (1837-1915) may be related to Daniel Gunn BROWNE (1808-1892) who was an uncle by marriage of Thompson BROWN’s wife, Elizabeth JACKSON. By following the trail back, I hope to either prove or disprove this notion. All help will be appreciated. August 26, 2008
BROWNs of 1st Ballybay. My interest in these BROWN families is because my g-grandfather Thompson BROWN was born in 1837 in Ednaferkin aka Edenaferkin in Co. Monaghan, son of Samuel BROWN. Samuel BROWN was a merchant on Dame Street in Dublin in the mid-1800s, otherwise, I know little more other than his wife was Mary STEENSON February 7, 2014
The Battle for Cavananore This is the story of various legal challenges over Cavananore that stretched over more than a hundred years. The family names of the main players are:COULTER, BRADFORD, McCULLAGH and JACKSON. May 12, 2010
John Charles COULTER (Nov 1840 – bet. 1914-1917) - the mystery surrounding his death and an exploration of his possible family connection to the COULTERs of Carrickastuck. The knowledge of the story is thanks to a series of emails in 2009 from Lainey (Elaine) Machovsky. Updated info on Ann TRACY. Updated info on John Charles COULTER. March 2, 2010

History by George Mildmay Dare This is the family history of the DARE-JULIUS family as compiled by George Mildmay DARE somtime before his death in 1907. It was clearly also used for the history that Amy Oliver LLOYD prepared in 1951. The footnotes on this piece are mine. April 4, 2011
JACKSONs - Fishing for JACKSONs Various tables of information about JACKSONs from Ireland. NOTE: There are hundreds of pages of data that can be accessed through this hyperlink. There are three separate tables: Jacksons from specific Counties in Ireland; JACKSONs mentioned in other internationasl sources (primarily England); miscellaneous bits of research that I have done on JACKSON that are not county-specific.  
McCULLAGH mentions in PRONI Freeholders. NOTE: This chart that does not include landlords, rates and where registered (which I have in a chart too complex to load). I have also included some but not all variant spellings included. There are also a few other names included because of their suspected relationships with McCULLAGHs. Also, some of the documents were hard to read and I may have made errors of transcription. Cross-referencing this chart with other documents is always a good idea. June 10, 2016
McCULLAGH Connections. Not all these McCULLAs, McCULLOHs, or McCULLAGHs or what have you are known to be related. I have assembled this table as a first step to determining what if any relationships there may be between those McCULLAGHs who lived in Antrim, Armagh, Monaghan and Down. NOTE: In my family tree, I have recorded most of the variant names as McCULLAGH (including McCULLA, McCULLOH, McCULLOGH etc). It makes them easier to track, and sometimes several spellings of the surname are included in a single document such as my Rootsweb tree. NOTE: This is a work in Progress. June 24, 2016
MENARY - Families in Northern Ireland in 1800s & 1900s Page in process This page includes links to information on the MENARY families of Northern Ireland other than that which is merely connected to the JACKSON, OLIVER or CALVERT families. July 20, 2005
This page is grab bag of bits about NOBLE family members who might have been connected to George Edward NOBLE - but at best, only tangentially. May 11, 2013
Tables of Olivers. There are links to a few dozen tables of BMDs, and more.  
OLIVER Family - Early Detective Work This page is focussed on the OLIVER families from Ulster. The following page picks up where it leaves off. January 22, 2007
OLIVER-DOBBIN Family Connections in Co. Armagh AKA Ancestors of Eliza OLIVER - my great-great-grandmother I have posted this page - as a rough draft - in the hopes that others may know of other bits of the puzzle and can set me right. I will update the page from time to time - so watch for the update notice in red font. I'm looking forward to learning more. I have noted in red where the information on this page has since proven suspect. In the three years since I wrote it, I have learned a lot and will undertake a major rewrite. There is still much more to learn. December 5, 2004

OLIVERs of Ballyrea & Laragh This document is 21 pages long, includes 184 footnotes and so the names and places referenced are too numerous to list. CAUTION. It may be slow to load - particularly with dial up access. The 18 deeds included can be viewed separately on the wills and deeds pages. In time, I will be reworking all the various OLIVER pages on this part of my site. Until then, I beg your patience. November 11, 2007
OLIVERs of Brootally, Co. Armagh Three of the four deeds referenced in this piece had already been posted, although footnotes have been updated. There is no doubt that these OLIVERs are related directly to the OLIVERs of Ennislare and Killynure and hence in all liklihood to the OLIVERs of Mullinture. WHen I am able to complete my deeds work (early 2008, I hope), then I will revisit this and similar pages and do a rewrite to include updates on all the various interconnections. Until then, please regard this as a page in progress. December 7, 2007
Olivers of Lislooney, Co. Armagh The names of these OLIVERs link up to the OLIVERs of Killynure and hence to Ennislare and likely also to Farmacaffley, Co. Armagh. In a couple of months, I expect to have made enough progress to be able to show the actual links. December 12, 2007
