Re: [Bann Valley] Re: Hello

McFetridge seems particularly likely to be variably spelled. I am currently looking at the earlier history of the family because I'm interested in an Archibald MacPhedris who was a ship's captain and merchant in Portsmouth New Hampshire, involved in the story of the 1718 emigration from the Bann valley. His very impressive house is still on show in Portsmouth. His family seem to be from Ballymoney. The names is spelled MacPheadris MacPhetris , anyhow you want, and there are lots of others too

Spelling is immaterial! Most common people could not write and when names
were written down, the scribe would write what sounded correct.
