Re: [Bann Valley] Looking for Info on Jamieson's of North Gower Ontario
I have connections to Jamiesons of the Moneydig/ Garvagh area through two
or three marriages but I have no likely DNA connection. I do however keep
an eye on them, they are an interesting family, with a very long history in
that area. One of my Torrens relatives (,not sure what relation) married a
Margaret Jamieson daughter of Jonathan Jameson of Movanagher and their son
Jonathan Torrens married another Margaret Jameson, presumably his cousin
I am in touch with descendants of that marriage but I don't know if they
have taken DNA tests.
I am also connected to Jamiesons through Jane Jamieson of Brookfield
Garvagh who was first wife of my several times great grandfather John Toye
of the Quarter, Cullyrammer who died in 1876. There were children of the
first marriage to Jane, several emigrated to Rhode Island. As did at least
one of the second family. There were Toyes, incidentally, who emigrated to
Canada.they went to Toye's Hill, Dundas county, Ontario
Mullin's book on Aghadowey mentions a proto industrialist in the area,
Robert Jameson of Brookfield who had a bleach green.
Do you get John Jameson's Jam*son newsletter? I can put you in touch if you
I am sure I have been in touch with at least one other Jameson descendant.
I'll check ancient emails and will reply again
