In looking for information on my GGGrandfather, John Moore, I found a death that fits well,13 March 1847 in Lisdrumbrocas Aghavilly Parish. It looks like Derrynoose would be in the same basic location. His daughter was married in 1857 in Newtownhamilton Parish Church. Would that make sense for a home? What other churches would be in the area?

Thank you!

  • There are Church of Ireland churches in Armaghbreague and Lisnadill but neither has any records prior to 1877 as they were destroyed in the 1922 fire in Dublin.

    Lisdrumbrocas or Lisdrumbrughas townland is in the parish of Derrynoose, according to this site:

    No Moores farming in that townland in the tithes in 1825:

    Generally only farmers were listed in the tithes so your Moores might still have been there but if so, they were probably weavers or labourers at that time.

    The 1857 marriage certificate should contain John Moore’s daughter’s townland, as well as her father’s occupation. That may help identify her family.

    The Valuation revision records show 2 Moore households in the townland. Mary Jane Moore had a labourer’s cottage there till 1874 (plot 20b) and a John Moore had an 8 acre farm (plot 26) till 1870.
