Re: James Beattie and Elizabeth née Vaughan marriage County Down
Posted by: Kim Reynolds (ID *****3088) Date: June 19, 2012 at 03:06:31
In Reply to: James Beattie and Elizabeth née Vaughan marriage County Down by Melissa Beattie of 94914

Melissa,found the marriage cert and a few other tidbits.

groom:James Beattie
groom's father:William Beattie
bride:Elizabeth Vaughan
bride's father:David Vaughan
date of marriage:7 August 1858
place of marriage:Killileagh,co Down

Griffith's Valuation:1848-1864
(listing of householders on land)

for William Beattie I found 21 listings in Ulster province-they are:

1.Clonfeacle parish,co Tyrone(1)

2.Derryloran parish,co Tyrone(1)

3.Mullagh parish,co Cavan(1)

4.Derrybrusk parish,co Fermanagh(1)

5.Kilmood parish,co Down(1)

6.Shankill parish,co Antrim(16)

the likelihood is that James' father comes from Shankill parish but do not discount any of them until you find him for sure.

for David Vaughan I found only 1 listing in Ulster province;

Cornahoule townland
Kinawley parish
co Fermanagh

also with the same townland,parish and county in a separate listing is Bridget Vaughan-perhaps David's wife?

then looking at the 1796 Flaxgrowers List,I found a Thomas Vaughan in Kinawley parish,co Fermanagh which is the same David was found in.Perhaps this is David's father/or other relation?
In the Flaxgrowers list,all but 1 Beattie is found in co Tyrone.

Just as a matter of interest,I found two marriages which look to belong to a couple of brothers of Elizabeth Vaughan.They are:

groom:Thomas Vaughan
groom's father:David Vaughan
bride:Eliza Glass
bride's father:James Glass
date of marriage:20 February 1855
place of marriage:Kinawley,co Fermanagh
(this brother of Elizabeth's may have been named after his grandfather Thomas)

groom:George Vaughan
groom's father:David Vaughan
bride:Mary Graham
bride's father:William Graham
date of marriage:1 August 1859
place of marriage:Killeleagh,co Down

Hope this helps,Kim
