My 4xGreat Grandparents were John Lawson b abt 1775 and Elizabeth (Bessie) Wilson. He was a Freeholder Farmer paying £4 rent pa in 1801 for a house and land in Drumhorich, Drumkeeran Fermanagh. A fair sum in those days but by no means indicating wealth! They had 10 children. Margaret born in 1813 was the 8th child. She married William Noble on 13 Dec 1844 in Lack Parish Church, Colaghty. Some of the early Drumhorich records were registered in the Diocese of Colaghty. Whether Margaret and William ran away I do not know but it is interesting that they had a daughter Bessie Lawson Wilson Noble - too much of a coincidence not to be my Bessie's Granddaughter! Son John could be named after his grandfather. In your previous thread you mentioned an Irvine and that is a common first name in my tree. Also 2 of Margaret's older sisters married into the Irvine family. The potato famine of the 1840's led to many families emigrating and a number of Lawsons came to Scotland - my line came to Edinburgh where I now live. It would be interesting if you could tell me anything more about the Canadian family. My email address is:
