In 1862 Griffith Valuation took place in Fermanagh. There
are 43 Armstrong's in Parish Magheraculmoney, Poor Law Union Irvinestown. If you have the name of the male children of this couple and check them against the names/occupiers to get a townland. Too many for me to be guessing. lst. son usually named after his father and 2nd. son her father.

There are 3 Henry Brown's listed in 1)Parish Clones, TL Clonatty & 2)Drumrainyand 1 in 3)Parish Galloon,

1) Henry Armstrong Parish Clones, Townland Clonatty
Earl of Erne

#4 house, outbuildings and land 21.0.20

2) Henry Armstrong, Parish Clones, TLDrumrainy, tenant of Earl of Erne

1b Pound (not sure what this is at this time in history)

3) Henry Armstrong, Parish Galloon, Townland Killycarnan
tenant of Earl of Lanesborough
#4 house, outbuildings and land 15.2.25

#2a John Armstrong tenant of Hamilton Glendennen a house

#5 John: house, outbuildings and land 12.1.10

There are 13 William Brown's in Fermanagh, 4 in Parish Galloon

www.askaboutireland.ie for Griffith Valuation

www.leitrim-roscommon.com has a data search for townlands which might help you.

There are 51 Armstrongs in the British telephone book for Fermanagh, with the Poor Law Union you should be able to bring that down in numbers. You may start an interest with your inquiry and people are very helpful even if 200 years have passed. They maybe able to tell you where to look for gravestone inscription and burials.

Parish Magheraculmoney is in the Poor Law Union of Irvinestown (12 mi)

Parish Urney Castleberg or Strabane can be the Poor Law
Union.
Parish Magheracross, Irvinstown is the PLU

You can look for the estates they may have lived and worked on www.landedestates.ie

Makenny was a townland in the Parish of Kilskeery, in Tyrone. All the Browns appear to have lived in the Parish Urney?

There are two resources for baptism and marriages in Northern Ireland.
www.emeraldancestors.com free to view pay for records
www.rootsireland.ie pay for records but a not for profit
foundation.

Neither Tyrone or Fermanagh have the best Parish records.

Both names sound Anglo-Irish and many parish registers are in the custody of the Church of Ireland, Representative Church in Dublin, personal research only. You can email
and see if the records are with them. They are starting to put the records on line but early days.

If you are looking for what life was like back then you can be sure the Anglo-Irish didn't suffer in the same way as RC Irish did. Lots of books about counties, try Eneclann or Four Courts Press.

Hope this helps.
