Thomas Courtney Sr., b. circa 1728 Ireland, d. circa 1811 in U.S.A.

Submitted on Saturday, September 12, 2009 at 21:23:41

ancestor: Thomas Courtney Sr.

comments: Thomas Courtney Sr. was born about 1728 in Ireland and died in the US about 1811. He married three times #1 "Daughter" Dawson who had a child, Robert, born, 1751 "near Castle Dawson". They had been married in London, England. Thomas married #2 Jane Anderson in Ireland in 1757. He married #3 Isabella Thompson in 1789. She was born in Virginia. Their son, Thomas Jr. is my ancestor. I am looking for any information as to Thomas Sr's parents or family members. Thomas Jr. married Mary Polly Cravens and had at least one child, John D who was born in Mongongalia County West Virginia. He married Catharine Rodes and married again to Eliza Ann Boyd. Among their children was Mary Elizabeth Courtney who married Samuel Horton Anderson. They were my great grandparents. I can fill in some gaps if any relatives are interested. thanks, Lynda

ancestor: Eleanor COURTENAY who married James ANDERSON

comments: Eleanor COURTENAY was the wife of James ANDERSON. Their daughter Jane/Janet ANDERSON married William McEWEN/McKEOWN at Sixmilecross, Tyrone, Ireland in 1857. By 1861 William and Jane McEwen were living in Ayrshire, Scotland, where they had 7 children. Their 3rd child, James, was born and baptised at Sixmilecross in 1866.

Jane McEwen nee Anderson died in Ayrshire, Scotland in 1899, and her parents are listed on her death certificate as James Anderson and Eleanor Courtenay. Her death was registered by her husband, William McEwen, and that both her parents were both deceased at the time of her death.

Does anyone know anything about Eleanor Courtenay?
Many Thanks

Courtney/Courtenay of Ilfracombe Devon England

Submitted on Tuesday, August 25, 2009 at 01:19:27

fname: Jason
lname: Courtney

ancestor: Courtney/Courtenay of Ilfracombe Devon England

comments: Hello
I am wondering if anybody has any information about the Courtney/Courtenay family line in Ilfracombe Devon.
In a nutshell it goes back from:
Thomas William Rice Courtney (b1879)
Thomas Henry Cotton Courtney (b1855)
William Rice Courtney (b1815)
James Courtney (b1778)
William Courtney (b1728/9)
John Courtney (b1681)?

I cannot seem to go back further than this at the moment.
Any suggestions
