Re: [Bann Valley] Re: Welcome to BannValley@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Many thanks for that. Thomas was indeed a tennant farmer upto the late
1880's when he bought the farm. He turns up in the Ironmongers Records
a few times. His family are described as 'hard working' etc. The
Henderson name is recorded at Ballyagan, Garvagh at least to the late
1700's. However, as I said, the marriage records of Thomas and Matilda
for Ballykelly seem to be 'lost' in which case we could 'nail' his
fathers name etc. There are several Henderson families around the
area, notably 'Hendersons of Crosslands' as well.
I just dont know how to get 'unstuck'! Not sure where Thomas is
buried. Many of the family are buried at the 'Garvagh 1st
Presbyterian'. I will look into that, as this is the family church.
