Dever, McBrine

i have an Elizabeth Dever married to a Christopher McBrine some point in the 1840's i think Elizabeth might have been Irish as her first born child was born in Ely Fermanagh in 1866, the rest of the children as far as i can tell were born in Glasgow. The first born was Margaret Jane McBrine, by the time the son im researching was born the surname was McBrien but that could just be a Scots/Irish misunderstanding.
Anything would be of help

I suspect the marriage you are looking for was between Christopher McBrine and Elizabeth Dowers. Registered in Enniskillen, Co Fermanagh 1864 Volume 17, page 85. You can order a copy of the cert from GRO Roscommon or GRONI in Belfast.

Thanks, i managed to find Elizabeths death cert in scotlands people it has her parents listed as Andrew and Barbra Dever, the kids birth entries arent clear enough for me to see what it actually said.

Bear in mind the information on death certificate sis often inaccurate. It's the informant's best guess, and often they get things like maiden names wrong. I can't see any other marriage in Fermanagh that fits your information. If you get the marriage cert it should have the bride's father's name on it. Perhaps it'll be Andrew?

The Griffith Valuation of 1862 in Fermanagh:

Andrew Devir, Parish of Devenish, Townland Gorteen, Poor Law
Union of Ballyshannon, tenant of Robert Ovens

26b - a house

There are only 2 other names in Fermanagh:

William Devers, Parish of Aghalurcher, PLU Lisnaskea
James Devers, Parish of Derryvullan, PLU Ballyshannon

It wouldn't be spellings from Scots to Irish just variations that were common in Ireland before 1899 few people even could read or write and depended on others to spell their names.

1901/1911 census there are 8 Devers in 1901, Fermanagh
www.census.nationalarchives.ie

www.emeraldancestors.com (Northern Ireland)
or an
Irish History Foundation has parish records prior to 1864 and both church and civil records after 1864 to 1900 and sometimes later, a few death records. Methodist,CofI and RC.

You should be able to send for a copy of the death certificate but as stated by others not a lot of information. However, other people maybe able to read it and you can scan to this posting.

If interested I have an LDS CD of civil births from 1864-1875 in Fermanagh, spelling is Devers, none of the father's is named Andrew. On request.

The Scotland records on www.familysearch.org are excellent
and matched up with public records in a search I did for
a friend who then went to Scotland.
