    • On official records (births/baptism etc) James & family entered Aghadanove as their residence, but their property was in Slieve Gullion townland - althogh it bordered Aghadanove. There were no householders named Boyle in Aghadanove between 1864 and 1929 (Griffiths Land Valuation Revisions).

    Farmer

    Slieve Gullion townland, Forkhill, Co Armagh, Ireland 
    • James' occupation is identified in marriage records of his daughters Mary Boyle in 1882 and Margaret/Maggie Boyle in 1892.
    Died 8 May 1885  Lislea, Co Armagh, Ireland Find all individuals with events at this location  [4
    Age: 57y 
    Cause: Chronic Bronchitis & Gen'l Debility 6 mths. Certified. 
    Address:
    Slieve Gullion townland, Forkhill, Co Armagh, Ireland 
    • James' widow Bridget was present at death at their home in Slieve Gullion townland (not Aghadanove).
      Just 57 years of age; of "Chronic Bronchitis & General Debility. 6 months. Certified". The harsh life may well have contributed to "General Debility" and "Chronic Bronchitis" proving fatal even in the month of June. However, has James been debilitated in his early 20's by the Potato Famine of 1845 -1852? Locally this is an early record of when a doctor (he/she had to be paid and) was in attendance - hence the death is "Certified".

    Picture Note: Marriage of James Boyle and Bridget Grogan - 31 Oct 1861. Extract from the parish records of St Patrick's RC chapel, Drumintee, County Armagh. The Boyle's parish was Mullaghban thus Dromintee must be the bride's parish - as was customary. Witnesses were: James Magee and Mary Conroy. The McGee's were next door neigbours to James Boyle. This Witness, James McGee, would be a brother of Denis McGee - and not Denis's son James McGee (son-in-law of James Boyle) born 1846 would be aged 15. In Ireland witnesses were often first cousins or had a hand in matching up the couple. © Copyright the National Library of Ireland - http://registers.nli.ie/ Catholic Parish Registers at the NLI.

    Picture Note: James Boyle (column 1: No3) - this is an extract from the land entry for "Slieve Gullion" townland. Many official documents of families living in "Slieve Gullion" townland (birth/marriage documents) record their residence as being "Aghadanove" townland . However there were no "Boyle" families in "Aghadanove" during this perod of Griffiths Land Revision records. The discrepancy is likely as they could not Read/Write at the time and were thus unsure of the precise fields where the Townlands changed.

    Picture Note: 1864 map of Slieve Gullion and of surrounding townlands adjoining the Longfield Road. The five holdings, Nos 2 to 6, each show the tenant's name in 1864 followed by the year that a subsequent tenant took over - up to 1929.
    Picture Note: In land plot 2 John Hannaway left home in 1867 and married into Levelamore, inheriting its tenancy in 1886. Back in Slieve Gullion John later took over his parent's land (plot 2) in 1916, following the death of his brother Hughie. In plot 4 Michael McGee was from Denis (Dinny) Mcgee's household (No 5); Michael had married neigbour Catherine Farmer in 1865.
    Picture Note: These households were at 850 feet and acess down to the (Longfield) road was mostly through Aughadanove townland. Since most could not read at this time "Aughadanove" was invariably recorded as their home on births/marriages, rather than "Slieve Gullion".
