Looking for relatives of:
Ellen Kennedy was born on 23 February 1873 at Ballylummin, Ahoghill which is in the registration district of Ahoghill in the Union of Ballymena, Co. Antrim. Her father was Bryan Kennedy, Ballylummin, a Labourer. Her mother was June [or Jane] Kennedy formerly Dickey. The birth was registered on 14 March 1873 by Nancy Luke, Ballylummin, who was present at birth. Nancy signed with her mark.
Does any of this following data link into this family?
ORDNANCE SURVEY MEMOIRS OF COUNTY ANTRIM VII: Ballymena and West Antrim
Statistical Report by Lieutenant T.C. Robe Apr. 1833
by Lew Gregory email@example.com
PARISHES: AHOGHILL ; BALLYCLUG; FINVOY
DICKEY, John 12 34
KENNEDY 60 76
KENNEDY, Bernard 34
KENNEDY, James 38
KENNEDY, John, Ann 37
[These are ages so in 1833, Bernard Kennedy would have been born abt. 1799. This could the older/senior Bernard Kennedy.
The older Kennedys age 60 & age 76 could well have been the privious generation and/or the parents of James, Bernard, and John.
This older Kennedy age 76 would have been born in about 1757.
In the 1848-1864 period there is a Bernard Kennedy there, as well.
John Dickey could have been Jane's brother and the older Dickey age 63, her father?? This kind of fits but is it accurate?
Bernard and Jane along with Ellen are in Scotland by 1881 [see following]
1881Census shows family @ 31 Watsonville Rows, Hamilton, Lanark, Scotland
BERNARD 35 WISHAW [Why was Bernard b Scotland?]
JANE 36 IRE
SARA ANN 14 IRE
MARY JANE 11 IRE
THERESA 09 IRE
HELEN 08 IRE
AGNES 05 MOTHERWELL [Scotland]
FRANCIS 01 MOTHERWELL [Scotland]
[so in abt 1865 Bernard Kennedy would have been in Ire.
Griffith Valuation of 1848-1864 shows that there was a Bernard Kennedy @ Broughshane St. Ballymena, Antrim!]
It would appear that this family was in Ireland during the 1867 and 1879 period.
I am really in hope that this will tie into someone else's family reseach!
