In one of the Courtenay family trees in the 198 page version of the Crossle manuscript, on page 165, John Courtenay, third son of John Courtenay (d.1812) and Sarah Clibborn, is shown as marrying Mary, daughter of James Hogg of Redford. It further states that John junior was first of Waterford and afterwards of Grange, Clansfield, Co. Tyrone. John died in 1851 having had a son James Courtenay (1809-1878).
I can find no evidence of the marriage of John and Mary Hogg; where their son, James, was born; or information that points to John’s residence at Grange. Indeed I have not been able to place Grange, Clansfield, Co. Tyrone.
I do have John Courtenay born in 1775 and alive and a widower at the time of the 1851 census. (Presumably he could have died later that year, but where?) I have details of the James mentioned above, and a further two sons: John (born 1808), William James (born about 1814); and two daughters born in 1815 and 1817.
I would like to communicate with anyone who can throw more light on where the sons were born, where their parents were married, and where they died.
Apart from this one area, I have the family well documented in Waterford and England.
