Cynthia Neale (my email bounced back 10 Dec 2004) writes:-
John Torney and Margaret Brougham married 21 Jan 1854 (I have certificate) and first child John was born 1855 but not registered. I have his deathcertificate.
John Torney and Margaret Brougham are my great-great-grandparents.
John was born in Portaferry County Down and Margaret was born in Flagmount, Shank Hill, Co Kilkenny. But I am having trouble finding out much more than that.
