Glenavy & Killead, Marriage Index 1848-50
This is an index of the names of the people who were married in the Roman Catholic parish of Glenavy & Killead during the years 1848-50 The following table of marriages is transcribed from Microfilm No. 5467 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. This section of the register is in English.
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. Although I have listed this index as being the years 1848 to 1850 the number of registrations for 1850 are very few. The register jumps from 6th February 1850 to 16th November 1853 and the gap does not seem to be filled at any point later in the register.
Townlands are not given.
