Hello, 

My 3rd great grandfather was Abraham Jervis, born to John and Ann Jervis.  (Note: Jervis, Jarvis, Gervis and Gervais all used).​

  • Abraham's Baptism

    16/3/1802 • Kilskeery Parish, Tyrone, Northern Ireland

    16/3/1802, Name: Abraham, Father: John JARVIS , Mother: Ann , Residence Clooncanragh (sic) (Cloncandra?)  Info found at http://www.igp-web.com/IGPArchives/ire/tyrone/churches/kilskeery-bap.htm

    Abraham married Ann Coulter and they raised their family in Magheracross, Fermanagh. 

    A cousin's family notes say that John (the father of Abraham)  was the son of Charles Jervis and Jane Stutt. The igp-web site shows : 

    1 Jul 1784 • Kilskeery Parish, Tyrone, Northern Ireland  Groom: Charles JARVIS Parish: Killskeery (sic) (Kilskeery?) Bride: Jane STUTT Residence: Kilskeery. 

    It later shows Charles residence in 1826 Tithe Applotment book as: 1 Jan 1826 • Killymendon, Kilskeery Parish, Tyrone, Northern Ireland

    Kilskerry Parish Tithe Applotment Book, 1826 TOWNLANDS SUBJECTED TO TITHING (AS RECORDED IN THE TITHE APPLOTMENT BOOK) See Web link in source MANOR OF BALLYVARRELL "SURNME: GERVAIS, GIVEN NME:Charles, TOWNLAND:Killymendon, MANOR: Ballyvarrell.  To note: a G Stutt is listed next door in the same townland (Jane's family?)

    Many Jervises are listed at Killymendon, Kilskeery.  I have not connected the family lines yet.  

    I would really like to find source confirmation that John was the son of Charles and Jane Stutt. Any thoughts?  And thank you in advance!

  • Charles and Jane married 1784.

    John said to be their son.

    John's son Abraham bap. 1802.

    This means Abraham was born 18 years after his grandparents married, so John would have been a teenager at his birth IF he was the father.

    Not saying it's impossible, but I tend to doubt the relationship.
