comments: My mother was Mary Gertrude West Courtney b in Co Antrim Ireland. Her father was Thomas Courtney son of Henry Courtney and Anne Ellen Dawson, m 1866 Co Antrim. My research only goes back as far as John Courtney of Glenavy Co Antrim in 1800. I know Richard Courtenay b c 1600 of Powderham Castle Devon England m Mary MacDonald dau of Earl of Antrim c 1626,and sons John, William Francis, were born at Aughagallon Antrim Ireland. I have great uncles John, William ,Francis, Charles etc. The same Christian names are reoccurring over the generations. I would appreciate finding out the ancestry of John Courtney of Glenavy in 1800,Co Antrim Northern Ireland. The Courtneys were Church of Ireland (Anglican communion)Thank you,

Marie Courtney Parker

    1. Hi Carol,

      Do you have a living male Courtney relative (with the surname Courtney)? If so the Courtney DNA Project would like to sponsor a DNA test, we would pay all fees and postage. You can reach me at stancourtney@hotmail.com
