John and Mary Lunn are living at house 9 in Ballymacateer and must be weavers as they have no land. They marry before 1829 so he must be born before 1810. There was an Abraham d. 1837 @69 m. to Mary and then to Ann Moore about this time, but I saw no mention of son John. There is also an Edward Lunn d. 1861 @89 there who married Margaret d. 1822 @35 and then m. Ellen Swenarton, but again no John's were mentioned as a son.
