ancestor: Henry Courtney b c 1844 Killead Parish Antrim Ireland father John Courtney of Glenavy Co Antrim Ireland.
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
