  • Though most RC marriage records are on-line, comparatively few records for other denominations are.  It would be helpful to know what denomination you think the couple were. Tradition was to marry in the brides church so if she was of a different denomination to her husband that’s where it’s most likely to have taken place.

    Moy is in Clonfeacle parish. The early Church of Ireland records were all lost in the 1922 fire in Dublin. RC records start in 1814 and are on-line on the nli site.

    None of the Clonfeacle Presbyterian records start before the 1830s.

    Without knowing the parish or denomination it may be difficult to find this marriage. Any additional information you may have would be helpful

  • Hi elwyn unfortunately I think they were church of Ireland and not roman catholics so it looks like I'm pretty much out of luck

  • That’s good. I looked in Griffiths Valuation (1854) but did not see any Tipping on Croan households in the parish of Armagh. There were 11 Tippings in various parishes but only 1 Croan in the county, in Tartaraghan. So not a common surname.

    No Croans in the county in the 1901 census. 28 Tipping, all RC save for 1 family who were Church of Ireland and lived in Ballintaggart near Richhill.

  • Yes Derryscollop still exists. The modern Derryscollop Rd & Canary Rd run through it. In 1911 there were 38 houses there and a population of 115.
