I am trying to track an Edwin and Eliza Courtenay of Armagh, parents of Mary Jane Courtenay who married Edward Bunting around 1836 and emigrated to Queensland with her family. Has anyone stumbled across any data pertaining to these people. Edwin was born about idea about Eliza birth or her maiden name.

Would appreciate any information to help in completing my family tree.

Hi there,
I am looking for something definitive on Thomas Courtney Sr.  He is my 5XGreat grandfather in that he is my mother's mother's mother's father's father's mother's father, through his daughter Elizabeth Courtney, who married John Downie (Downey).  If you have a source to share or a document that would be great.  My ultimate goal is any image that I could include in a digital scrapbook that I am making for my son and to cousins, but going back this far means that with the exception of the occasional portrait, bookplate, or landscape photo, I'm pretty much out of luck!
Anyhow, this is a new discovery to me, although my grandfather always said that the Downies that came to Canada from Ireland weren't Irish!
Anyway, please let me know if you have anything on Thomas Sr. or Jane Anderson.
Thanks so much!
Belva Crabtree (Iam actually using my mother's computer right now - so you can just reply to this or send any replies to my e-mail address at
PS. Either  way, it would be great to gear from you... wherever you are!

Looking for info on John and Abigail Courtney, maybe born in Scotland maybe around 1780.
They had at least 1 daughter, Jane Courtney, about 1803- died in Canada, maybe 1871.
She married John Murphy and they had at least 1 daughter, Deborah Murphy, born in Port Hope, Canada. Deborah married George Sallans and they had 3 children, one of which was Elizabeth Jane Sallans, born in Port Hope in 1865. She married John M. Mullen.
Do you have any of these people in your tree?

I am trying to identify the courtenay who married 'frances' and had two daughters (frances and elizabeth) in the late 1600s. francis was widowed and re-married a thomas hodges. widowed again, she traveled with daughters and thomas housden (friend or relative) to barbados, then to yorktown va, then to norfolk virginia, where she died in 1730. her daughters were made wards of thomas housden. any information on which courtenay might have been the first husband of frances
would be greatly appreciated. thank you, anne hendricks
