ancestor: Lewis Courtney
comments: My grandmother was Ann Jane Heatley nee Courtney born 1909 in Aghadalgon, Glenavy, Co Antrim, N.Ireland she died 2004, her father was Solomon Courtney 1867-1948, and his father was called Lewis Courtney who died at Aghadalgon on the 1st Sept 1889. He build the house and I think bought the farmland, still owned and farmed by the family called "Rivervale" on Chapel Hill in Glenavy. I know very little about Lewis, I think he was born c1845 but not sure where and was married to Elizabeth Kane. His will states his effects to be worth 121 and the farm was left to my greatgrandfather Solomon also known as Sammy.
I would love to know more of his origins or from anyone connected to this branch of the Courtney family
