thanks very much Viola! And nice to hear we're related (sort of):-)!
I had a look at the records.
1864 to 1876 VAL/12B/27/8A no alterations.
Plot 1Aa and B occupied by John Aiken lessor M Archdall
Plot 2 occupied by Wm Stewart lessor M Archdall
Plot 3 occupier Wm Burnett lessor John Aiken
Plot 4 occupier Catherine Slevin lessor M Archdall
Plot 5 occupier Rebecca Clarke lessor M Archdall
Plot 6 occupier Henry OLIVER lessor M Archdall (4 acres 2 rood 35 poles/perches.
1877 to 1881. /8B Plot 5 John Aiken became occupier in 1887. Plot 6 taken over by John
Aiken in 1880.
1882 to 1898 8C plot 3 occupier To John Aiken in 1882. And plots 5 & 6 combined and a
note that the house that had been reported as "down" still standing.
That is the only mention of that Henry Oliver
In 1858 John OLIVER me Jane CHITTICK in Irvinestown.
On 17/04/1868 a Jemima OLIVER d/o Caldwell Oliver and Jane WATSON was born Ederney.
On 23/02/1887 Death of Thos OLIVER Drumgowna West
On 23/04/1912 Wm OLIVER married Eva BROWN in Irvinestown.
So there were still OLIVERs living in the general area.
Incidentally the John Aiken was the GGfather of my sister-in-law. His
son James AIKENs daughter Annie was her Mother. And that family lived in Florencecourt at
the time of Annie's marriage.
