The Bann Valley is a fairly closed community: there are a number of common families which tended to interbreed so there are certain very prominent family lines.
My own Torrens line is documented on the Torrens site. This section of the Bann Valley site is a repository for information on other families. So if you have trees of families from the Bann Valley, please use the Contact button so I can arrange to add them to this site.
