I would invite my Stevenson family from the Dunlop area of Ayrshire. I
would particularly like to know when they went to County Down, and which of
them stayed. I have gone back as far as James Stevenson, who farmed in
Townland of Lisnafiffy (I haven't any dates for him), because my
great-great grandfather, Thomas Stevenson, was born there in 1826. Thomas'
son, Robert (born in the Townland of Drumnagally), came to Canada in 1887
with his wife's family, the Anthonys from the Townland of Ballykelly. This
family is rather fragmented, as I suspect James had three wives over the
years. With the Irish records in particular, they have been very hard to
Have a very Merry Christmas everyone.
