Re: [Torrens List] Dungiven Branch
Michael and Rachel, I enjoyed your email and I was unaware that we even
had a descendant of the Dungiven Line on our list.
My Father some years ago was at a Cattle Market either Kilrea or
Ballymoney when he got talking to another farmer who turned out to be a
Torrens from Dungiven and he informed my Father that he was the last of
his line in Dungiven area.
I descend from Andrew Torrens (c1781 - 1871) of Coolneman. But I dont
think your line connects with mine at all but Your line has some very
famous people etc among them.
Yes, I would like a copy of the Exell Spreadsheet of the Torrens BDMs
My email address is ;- sdtorrens@xxxxxxxxxxxxx .

I have only one mild protest! Describing the Dungiven branch you say,
Richard: 'This line has very nearly died out - only one branch is
known to still survive.'
My mother, Sheila Torrens, has five children, 17 grandchildren and 11
great grandchildren and counting! I have concentrated on the
descendants of Sir Henry Torrens, my four times great grandfather and
have identified hundreds of descendants in numerous different lines,
including quite a lot of Torrenses (ie male lines). Have a look at my
And if you are interested in Sir Henry and his family have a look at
the website I am developing based around John Linnell's painting of
Sir Henry's wife and her children:
For those of you with British Torrenses I have an excel spreadsheet
with the births, marriages and deaths of all UK Torrenses between 1837
and 2005 - let me know if you are interested.
And if any of you know have any information about the Dungiven line
please do let me know.
