There is one reference showing Ann Diver's year of birth as 1846. Carndonagh RC parish Baptism records started Nov 1846 but no entries for Ann have yet been found.

In Helen McLaughlin's 1904 marriage record her father is identified as William McLaughlin and his wife is Ann Dever. Helen was born Ellen and changed to Helen when she joined her sister in America. (No records have been found for a "Helen McLaughlin" born to William and Ann - Births or Baptisms).

"John was son of Peter Hannaway & Rose Mullen (she) of Newtownhamilton. The Hannaway name had not arrived (Slieve Gullion & Levelamore townlands) by the Church Tithes of 1828, but it was there by the time of Griffith's Land Valuations of 1862" (Eugene McCann's records).
Estimates of John’s year of birth:
• 1838 - from the 1911 census aged 73
• 1840 - from the 1901 census aged 61
• 1846 or earlier - from 1867 marriage; “Full-age” (21 or older)
• 1852 - from 1917 death registration aged 65
Vague dates of birth were common where most citizens could not read/write and civil registration had yet to start; 1864 for births.

1867 Marriage Record bride, groom & witnesses all sign with a X - probably could not write their signature.
1867 marriage record of residence as "Ardanove" is inaccurate: there are no Hanaways in Ardanove/Aughadanove townland at this period. From 1864 Griffiths Land Valuation the Hannaway family home is in the first farmstead in Slieve Gullion townland which adjoins Ardanove/Aughadanove: the next field! To reach the house from the Longfield Road you climb the lane through Ardanove to reach the house on the mountain - you're now in Slieve Gullion townland.
"Griffiths Valuations Revisions: Plot 19B (Hannaways) that went to Mary “Bartley” in 1881, & John Hannaway he got the place in 1889. Went to Patrick Hannaway in 1921, he still had it in 1935 & 1936-57; then it went to George Hannaway in 1965. This property along with John Quinn’s (plot 19A) total of 11.5 acres" (from an audio recording of Eugene McCann in 2016).

"See John Crawley’s bungalow (Levelamore, right of Hannaways) when (John) Quinn died John Hannaway came down to the road when he knew the landlord’s agent was going to Forkhill to probably collect rents... So he asked him could he lease Quinn’s land (strip of fields to the right/south of the lane up to Hannaway’s). John McGlade told me your man (the agent) said ‘Come up and see me when I’m here next’. So he went up and seen him and got the lease on the land-John Hannaway did" (Eugene McCann - audio recorded in 2016). This exchange would have occured on or before 1886 when John Hannaway acquired the tenancy of John Qinn's land-source: Griffiths Land Revisions. John now had the land on either side of the lane/loanin to his house.
"He (John Hannaway) would go to England for the summer and come back and work on the farm in the winter" (from a 1989 audio of Peter, Georgie & Mary Hannaway [Mary Doherty])
1901 census states "cannot read". Form B1 of census shows Roof category is 0 (ie thatch). the 4 Outbuildings (form B2):- stable, piggery, cow-house & barn. Only the last two stood since 1950 (Peter Hannaway b1948). Census form was collected 2nd April 1901.

John Hannaway is buried Mullaghban; his wife and children are buried in Lislea.

(Byrnes Red Book:married Joe Dickert, USA. Had a son Joseph who married Diana P. At time of notes (c1990) they have 2 sons at University and Rose is 93).

1897 birth registration confirms that Rose Hardy's father is William John Hardy. The mother is Mary Ann. The surname "Formerly" is scribbled "Macan..." and officially recorded as "Macaw". Likely the Registrar recorded the surname (Macken) as heard. William John, who could not write, signed with an X .
Rose travelled home to Scotland or Ireland at least three times (1932, 1951 and 1957) sailing between New York and Liverpool or Glasgow. In October 1951 Rose, now aged 55, returned to New York aboard ss BRITANNIC accompanied by her son Walter Dickert aged 17 (born in 1934).

1872 marriage, age is "fullage" - 21 years of age or more.


 
Hannaway, Anne (I229)

1878 marriage records; Age entry "fullage" is 21 or older.
1878 marriage record of residence as"Ardanove" is inaccurate: there are no Hannaways in Ardanove/Aughadanove townland at this period. From the 1864 Griffiths Land Valuation the family home is in the first farmstead in Slieve Gullion townland which adjoins Adanove: the next field! To reach the house from the Longfield Road you climb the lane through Adanove to reach the house on the mountain - you're now in Slieve Gullion townland.


Hughie Hannaway died on 3 Jan 1915. Hughie's wife Bridget (Henry) died four days after Hughie on 7 Jan 1915. Her death is registered the next day 8 Jan 1915 by son Peter, home from Coatbridge in Scotland. Hughie's death on 3 Jan 1915 was not registered at Forkhill by son John until 18 January 1915. John, who was present at the death of his father is 25 years of age; older siblings may well have married or emigrated at the time.
In 1916 John Hannaway (now married into Levelamore) takes over as tenant of his brother Hugh's land on SlieveGullion, following Hugh's death in 1915.

"Hughie Hannaway's headstone in Mullaghbawn cemetry has nothing engraved about earlier burial dates." (From 2016 audio recording of Eugene McCann). The location of headstone in Cemetery not known - nowadays it seems to be for the family to locate headstones.

Eugene explained the route up to Hughie Hannaway's house from the Longfield Road - via the gate after Hughie Creegan’s. "It’s not a straight path, veer left; there are 2 fields & 2 fields up to Hughie’s. They had a horse & cart and had a cart-house half-way up where they took the horse out, reversed the cart in & left the cart there & just took the horse on up. It was tough going - that". (From 2016 audio recording of Eugene McCann).

Catherine was likely the Godmother on 23 Sept 1876, child of Bennetts of Ballykeel.(Godfather was John McGlade: Catherine's bridesmaid the following year was Margaret McGlade). See copy of Baptism entry in Media.
Catherine Hannaway was “Full Age“ (aged 21 or over) in her 1877 marriage record.

Daisy and Peggy = Margaret. It seems like there should be a long explanation for Daisy, but it's as simple as this: the French word for "daisy" is "marguerite." As for Peggy? Well, Margaret was shortened to nicknames like Meg or Meggy, and the rhyming nickname trend turned Meggy into Peggy.
Also nicknamed "the Quaker"-not known why (source Eugene McCann) 
McCoy, Margaret (I516)

In 1864 Ambrose Hardy was the occupier of over 7 acres in Ballylummin townland (House, offices & Land). An "Alexander Hardy" was also tenant of a house on that land (source: Griffiths Land Valuations 1864).
In August 1870 civil records show that Ambrose Hardy of Ahogill, a widower aged 70, married Rebecca Diamond. Rebecca, unmarried, was a Weaver aged 30. Ambrose and Rebecca had 7 children; the first, twins James and Maria died just a month after birth. The last recorded child was Hugh Hardy, born to them in 1881. All their children's births are recorded on the civil register with the father as: "Ambrose Hardy" and mother: "Rebecca Hardy" ( formarly Diamond/Dimond) living in Ballylummin. There is only one other Hardy in Ballylummin; Alexander Hardy, a tenant on Ambrose's land. The last-born in 1881 would mean Ambrose was a father aged 80/81 years. Ambrose could not read/write and would have no record of his birth. It is more creditable that Ambrose was in his 60's and not aged 70 when he married Rebecca.
Researching the earlier marriage of Ambrose Hardy has produced a marriage at Ahogill RC chapel (St Mary's), Ballylummin, on 30 Aug 1854 of Ambrose Hardy to "Lucind(a) O'Rourke". Witnesses are: John Lynn & Alex'r Hardy (source-Ahogill RC parish records) . Alexander Hardy was a tenant of Ambrose Hardy in the 1864 Griffiths Land Valuations of "Ahoghill" townland.
Ambrose Hardy had deceased on the 1897 Registration of his son William Hardy's marriage (he had died in 1886). After his death a neighbour took over Ambrose Hardy's house & land tenancy and not a member of his family (Griffiths Land Valuation Revisions). 
Hardy, Ambrose (I284)

In 1889 Patrick was born to Mary Hannaway - this is about 22 years after the first of her nine children. However Mary was married at the age of about 16 or 17 and would then have been in her late-30s.

"Mary Hannaway’s" house & land was bought by Hughie Bennett in the 1960’s from Johnny McAffrey living in Birkenhead (thanks to Tommy O’Brien, Ballard resident: audio recording in 2010). See photo of remains of the house today.
