Hello, I am looking for any information anyone might have on the following relatives:

My 5th great grandfather is George Elliott Sr, born 05 February 1792 in Drumholm. He was the son of William Elliott born 19 Sept 1720 in Drumholm (possibly to father Ninian Elliott) and Margaret Love who died 15 Sept 1804 in Drumholm.

George Elliott Sr married Jane Clarke 09 May 1805 in Drumholm. She was the daughter of James Clarke who died 4 Nov 1797 in Drumholm and Mary Spence born 2 May 1742 in Drumholm. Mary Spence's parents were Jacob Spence, who died 12 Apr 1783 in Drumholm and Ann Maxwell.

If anyone has additional information I would be very appreciative!

    Welcome to Ireland Reaching Out!

    Roots Ireland (subscription site) has Drumhome C of I records going way back. Baptisms start in 1719 and marriages and burials in the late 1600s. I located the transcription for George and they have hsi year of birth as 1793. See below. Maybe a transcription error? You may want to get a short-term subscription to Roots and look for other records.

    I also looked at the 1834 Tithe listings for Drumhome and the only Elliott record  was a John in Morerah which is not on the offical townland list. See link below.

  • That information about the baptism is likely. I found the birth through the Irish Historical Library in Phoenix.
