Ballyscullion (Bellaghy) Marriage Index 1844-45
This is an index of the names of the people who were married in the Roman Catholic parish of Ballyscullion (Bellaghy) which is spread over counties Antrim and Derry (Londonderry) during the years 1844-45. The following table of marriages is transcribed from Ballyscullion (Bellaghy) Microfilm No. 5763 held online by the National Library of Ireland accessible through their Roman Catholic Parish Register Search page. All names and surnames given here are as I read them.
My list is sorted by the surname of the groom. Question marks indicate letters or words I had a problem reading. The letters ‘sic’ indicate that is how I read the letters I have typed.
[ ] indicates that the letters within the brackets are my best guess at what the letters might be.
Townlands are not given in this section of the records.
The National Library of Ireland gives this parish as occurring in Derry (Londondery) only, it does not list Antrim. John Grenham lists this parish as spreading over both counties. I am informed by Jim and Colm (members of the Facebook group Ulster Clans of Ireland thatBallyscullion townland is divided by the river Bann at Newferry and covers both Antrim & Derry, the chapel is on the Antrim side (ref. Jim) Newferry Village is no longer, it was bulldozed away in the 1960’s. Ballyscullion lies on either side of Lough Beg (ref Colm). The river Bann divides Antrim and Derry and runs through the Lough. It was Church land in medieval times “O Scullion being An Tergnach” = Custodians of Church and Parish (ref. Colm)
