[4qd-bannvalley] Dempseys

These Dempseys and also the Derry city Toyes were Catholic. The use of 
the name Richard or Dick in A*hadowey  is interesting;  maybe Richard 
Toye of Derry city was originally from A*hadowey?  (I have lost letters 
on this keyboard;; apolo*ies! ) Richard's father was Edward. There is 
very little doubt that the Toyes are ori*inally an Irish family;; some 
became Protestant early on and some didn't. I have found Protestant 
O'Toyes round Ballymoney, who still used the name Cornelius, which 
probably preserves the Irish name Conchubar.
