I have traced my Martin ancestry back to a Samuel Martin who appears in Freeholder Records in Moydalgan, Dromara in 1826 with his sons, George, James and John. I am a descendent of George who moved up to Belfast in the 1830s. George Married a Peggy Ann Moffat from the Begney district. Keen to know what happened to any relatives who stayed in Moydalgan or any ancestors

My husband's mother, Catherine Teresa McAlister, was born in Munninabane in 1924 to Daniel McAlister and Catherine McKenny. She was adopted in 1936 by an aunt and uncle from Scotland. She later married and came to Canada. Any information on her birth family would be greatly appreciated

What a nice local history site! I also have roots in the Dromara area. My great-great-grandfather John Rowan lived on Levallyreagh Road, and my great-grandfather Alexander Rowan was a weaver who lived at Tullyniskey. His daughter Ellen was my grandmother who came to America and married a Mehaffey from Loughbrickland. Am also descended from Biggerstaff from Dromara. Would enjoy hearing from anyone who knows the origins of either Rowan or Biggerstaff families there. I will keep checking back for more site updates.

Hi there. My father in law was named William roger Hamilton Corbett and was called Roy! His family originated in dromore and lived at Magheratimpany road in the 1911 census. He moved to Cumbria in the 1950s and settled here. We are the only Corbetts in the phone book! So many William Corbetts.....

I would like a copy of your book about Dromara. My 3xs great grandfather Hugh McCreery lived in Moydalgan and was married to Elizabeth Graham in 1838. Looking for more information about their family and way of life before his son's Alex, Hugh, John, and Thomas came to America. Thank you for your kind response, Lisa

Wonderful website! Amateur researcher from California here. My great grandfather, John Randolph Blackwood, was born in Dromara in 1838 and came to the United States in 1841. His father, David, or grandfather (also David) may have been from Ballynahinch. I'd be very interested in hearing from anyone with information about the Blackwoods, Browns, Majors, or Grahams from County Down. Congratulations on the site, and keep up the good work!

Hi, I would like to know if anyone can remember the Campbell family who lived in one of the cottages up the church hill above St.Johns CoI. There was a big family of them but were badly hit by TB in the 1930s. The children had attended the local primary school in Dromara until then. After the tragedy they moved to Belfast before ww2 I would love to know anything more about them. They lived not far from the McDowell family cottage on Church Hill. Any further information would be wonderful
