Seeking information on the Jervis family from Fermanagh. Abraham Jervis had a daughter, Sarah, who married my GG grandfather, Alexander Patterson of Dromore, Tyrone. Abraham was a farmer  and leased land according to Griffiths Valuation. I would love more family info- thanks in advance!

  • There’s a record of Abraham Jervis farming in Salloon in the tithes for 1829:



    He is not listed there I Griffiths Valuation for 1862, However there is someone of that name in Drumkeen (Sarah’s address when she married). Griffiths lists Abrahams’ home as a house in the village of Ballinamallard. He may have retired from farming. I don’t see a death certificate for him 1864 onward. The Valuation revision records on the PRONI site show that Abraham was gone by 1869. I suspect he died between 1862 and 1864.

    The records for Magheracross Church of Ireland are on this site:

    I searched them for mention of this Jervis family but without success. I would have expected Sarah to have been baptised there and for her parents to be buried there but I did not see any record of those events.

    Possibly the family were Methodist. If so there are baptism records for Ballinamallard from 1829 onwards in PRONI in Belfast. That meeting house were Wesleyan Methodists so they continued to use the Churhc of Ireland for marriages up till about 1880.

    I can’t see any other references to this Jervis family.
