I am looking for any information on Patrick Magee senior (my 2nd great grandfather) who was a cattle dealer who died in Rathfriland Down on 6 May 1881 and was buried 8 May 1881. His son, also Patrick Magee (b1853 in County Down, married Catherine Scallon and lived in Newcastle upon Tyne UK, died in 1909. There was another son of Patrick Magee senior that I know of, John Magee (b1861 in County Down). In the 1891 English Census his occupation was cattle dealer and he was residing with Patrick Magee in Newcastle upon Tyne. Any information, particularly relating to Patrick Magee senior in Rathfriland and his Irish family would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

red mail Alexander,Robert & Thomas McBurney 1819
A Website shows Alexander, Thomas & Robert McBurney all as stonecutters residing in RATHFRIKAND in 1819. Does anyone have any further details? ie. relationship ages parents spouses children. I am clutching at straws trying to find pre 1881 life of Hugh Duffy McBornie who according to records was born c1851 Belfast and worked as Stonemason. It is possible that Duffy was his mother or grandmothers maiden name.
James McConville was the godfather of my grandfather Patrick Joseph O'Sullivan; the latter's father lived in Rathfriland. My researches into rating revaluation records in Rathfriland show James McConville held about 8 acres of land in two plots at Cross (Drumgath) in Rathfriland about 1860, plus offices and land on a third site; acquired another 4 acres on a separate plot in 1868; held the house, office and yard at 31 Church Street which he sublet to Isaac Dalyell; held the house, office and yard at 32 Church Street together with a garden at 3 Graveyard Lane, which he sublet to Roger Morgan and after the latter died in 1866 to his widow Agnes Morgan; held the house &c at 22 Downpatrick Street in 1878 which he sublet to Samuel Morgan. Edward McConville in 1875 held a house at 19 Downpatrick Street, which he sub-let to James Carr. Hugh McConville took over the sub-lease of the house at 31 Church Street in 1868, and in the late 1870s also held the next-door house at 31 Church Street. Owen McConville held a house at 8 Graveyard Lane. There are also records in Drumgath of Roger McConville in 1869 and 1873, Patrick McConville in 1891, John McConville on three sites in 1891 1869 and 1887-1891 (plus a house and yard and 3 acres in the townland of Lissize, and also a house offices and yard at 122 Newry Street, which he sub-let), Denis McConville 1869-1891 succeeded by Hugh, and William McConville 1887-1892. Arthur McConville also had a house and 10 acres in the townland of Lissize. I should be pleased to be in touch with anyone researching McConvilles in Rathfriland.
My great-grandfather, Thomas Sullivan, a Catholic who was a Head Constable in the RIC in Meath, retired to Rathfriland on 1 July 1875, and rented a house at 41A Newry Street from 1880 to 1894. I suspect that Rathfriland was the birthplace of his wife, Eliza Sullivan, whom he married on 12 April 1852, her maiden name being Elizabeth Gilmore; a near neighbour of theirs was a Patrick Gilmore, whom I also think was the godfather of their daughter. Thomas Sullivan died on 16 April 1894, his wife on 19 December 1894; both are buried at Rathfriland with their daughter Mary. Any information about the family, or about the Rathfriland Gilmores, would be welcome.

red mail Thomas O'Neill
Hi there, I am looking for any information about my great grand father Thomas O'Neill. According to his discharge record Thomas was born at Rathfriland - we think about 1836/37. His parents were Thomas and Isabella (nee Campbell) O'Neill. Thomas enlisted in the army at age 18 at Banbridge in 1854 and eventually arrived in New Zealand in 1857 as a member of the 68 Regiment of the Foot. Thomas was discharged in New Zealand and settled at Bombay (near Auckland). We believe he had at least two brothers who journeyed to New Zealand after his death in 1909 to find their brother.History beyond this interesting character has remained elusive to us (his descendents) and we would love to solve the mystery of his origins. I am keen to hear from anyone with information that might help us with this puzzle. Kind regards, Maureen
