Since October 2009 I have been working on my family tree project – primarily using the 1901 & 1911 Censuses of Ireland. I’ve also been able to piece together more information with the help of and PRONI.

David Bell’s family tree

It’s still a work in progress but I’ve decided to open it up now as other avenues become exhausted. Family surnames included in the tree include:

  • Bell – Co. Tyrone, Co. Fermanagh, Dublin and Mullingar
  • Gardiner – Brockagh, Clabby, Co. Fermanagh
  • Scott – Co. Tyrone?
  • Porter – Aughentain/Aghintain, County Tyrone
  • Keys – Brockagh, County Fermanagh and Aughentain/Aghintain, County Tyrone also a connection to Cromac Belfast
  • Paul – Maghera and Willow Creek Ranch near Weskan, Kansas USA
  • Shiels – Maghera and Australia
  • Craig – Knockan/Aughlish near Dungiven
  • Montgomery – Knockan near Dungiven
  • Gibson – Garvagh?
  • Wilson – Maghera
  • Smith – Maghera?
  • Graham – Maghera?

Please leave a comment below or contact me if you have any information you think may help with this project.

  1. Hi David
    I am married to Nigel Gardiner whose father is Christopher Gardiner of Brockagh
    & Nigel’s Late Mother Noel Gardiner of Moysnaught Clabby.
    Chrsty (Christopher) would be a great person to talk to…

    We live in Bangor but would be in Fermanagh a lot… would be good to meet up 🙂
