I am researching my descendants from my GG Robert Love (1779-1860) married to Elizabet Cavin (1783-1855) who were tenant farmers in the 1862 Griffiths Valuations in the County: Antrim, Barony, Kilconway, Parish, Rasharkin, Townland Killycreen and Dunenay. (Dunenae). I have a copy of his will where he passed the Killyceen farm onto sons James and David and the Duneany farm to son Matthew ( my great grandfather). . In Matthew's will he seems to have bypassed my Grandfather, Robert Love and left the farm to his younger son David. Robert married my Grandmother Mary Rankin (nee Gaston) in 1906 and my father Robert James Love was born 9 April 1907. Mary Love along with my father and another son Stewart Alexander Hall Love came to New Zealand in 1910.
It is the Duneany branch of the family that I am a descendant from and it would appear as if at some point in time they then became the actual Landowners. This is what I would like any information or clues of This is what I would like any information or clues of where to look. I know that there is a private graveyard on what was the family farm, which when I visited in 1919 was a mass of brambles and weeds, with no legible headstones. Information I have gleamed has that the last burial there was in 1929 (not sure of the Accuracy) and might have been that of my Grandfathers brother David? I cannot find any graves for this branch from Matthew to my Grandfather Robert in the Killymurris cemetery.
The Killycreen farm is on the Dunminning Road, Glaryford. BT44 and the Duneany farm is off that road between the Killycreen farm and the Killymurris Presbyterian Church.
