I would think all of the Nevins in Rafintan would be related since there are
so few of the name in Fermanagh records that I have seen so far. When you
say PRONI should be able to provide a copy do you mean that correspondence
is possible? The PRONI website seems to indicate that you have to walk in
to get assistance.

PRONI should be able to provide a copy of the lease.
The following link will provide something towards an understanding of the
leases of the day - they haven't changed that much!
I have an relative interest in LUCINDA NEVIN b. abt. 1853, d 24 Feb 1877 in
Derrycullion, dau. of GALBRAITH NEVIN (farmer) and MARY BAXTER of Rafintan.
Lucinda m. CHRISTOPHER TRIMBLE in Aghalurcher Parish Church 04 May 1876.
Christopher and Lucinda had a dau LUCINDA (aka MARY JANE - don't ask me why
the complete change from her given name - I still have to research that
one!) b. 22 Jan 1877 d. 07 Nov 1886. (Note that her mother died a month
after giving birth to her dau. who, herself, died some 10 years later along
with her 2 stepsisters.) A sad story - Christopher outlived 3 wives -
Lucinda Nevin being the first - and d 1934.
Is there a relationship between Galbraith and Thomas Nevin - brothers?
