Thanks for your message. I'm sure that our respective Cluff families must be related in some way, but I think 'my' Cluffs were based around Derrylea a few miles away from Ballyreagh (the church records I have are also from Kilskeery Church of Ireland, rather than Derryvullan North, in Irvinestown), so the relationship may unfortunately be distant!

I don't know if you've come across the Freeholder records on the Public Records Office of NI website (www.proni.gov.uk), but there are two records dating to the 1730-40s for Cluffs of Ballyreagh. A Clemmy Cluff of Ballyreagh is also recorded in the 1901 census (http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~nirfer2/Documents/Census_data/1901_Fermanagh_Census_Index-A_to_F.xls), so it looks as though the Ballyreagh Cluffs were long established in the area, both before and after Thomas and Sidney emigrated.

If I get any further back with my research and can hazard a guess at a connection between the Ballyreagh and Derrylea Cluffs, I'll be sure to let you know!
