Also, is there anything left of the Stroanshesk farm (most of which I understand is now a caravan park)?
I plan to stop by the Dunluce Castle as well as the Kinbane (Kenbane) ruins, which I understand are not open, but can be seen from the cliffs. I have been planning a trip to Ireland for a few years to retrace my family origins. They were married at the town of Five Mile which is just south of Okarito (5 miles actually) in South Westland NZ. I have more info about them but it is not with me as I write this.
Well be spending two days, 1 night, on Northern Ireland Coast My line is as follows: Daniel of Kenbaan (b. Recent events in my life have made it all the more important and my research has led me to you. Archibold was from Antrim and arrived with fellow miners named Butler, Scally, and I think Mc Cormack. I very much would like to travel to Ireland in the next six months and meet and mingle with their descendants.
There was a son Thomas Kelly married to Elizabeth Wardman who would have been my fathers Grandfather, but it would seem that he came to England and settled in Oxfordshire. He was born abt 1841 and the 1871 England Census shows they lived in Bermondsey, London, England with their sons: Patrick, Timothy, James, and Maurice. Are marriage records for Ballycastle available anywhere please?
