The following is from  : A History of the Presbyterian Church in Ireland - Scotch-Irish Pioneers, Appendix VI, titled “Home Towns of Ulster Families 1691-1718."   The list in Appendix VI included the names of those involved in the Presbyterian Synod meetings of the time and gave their hometown, as follows :

1718      Thomas DAVIDSON, Parish of Urney, Co Tyrone






The following information was provided to me in Jan 1978 by someone named Eileen, from Ontario, Canada.   She signed her letter “Eileen,” and unfortunately I cut her address with full name off the envelope, obviously to store somewhere, but I can’t find where I stored it!  The envelope was postmarked Woodstock, Ont.  The following is the information that she sent :




Wednesday, Feb 5, 1890


CARLINGFORD, ONTARIO : A short time ago I noticed a communication in THE TIMES from North Easthope, giving a sketch of a family in that township noted for longevity.  Length of days had certainly been bequeathed to them; but I think the Davidson family, many of whose members reside in this vicinity, take the palm for age.  The family were all born and brought up in the county of Monaghan, Ireland and originally consisted of 12 members - 7 sons and 5 daughters - 8 of whom still survive.  The eldest was born in 1800 and the youngest in 1825.  The sruviving members with their ages are as follows : William 83, Abraham 82, Mrs James Hamilton 79, Mrs. S. Giddens of the township of Wallace 77, Rev John Davidson of Co Tyrone 75, Mrs Geo Reaney, township of Downie 73, Mr Andrew Davidson, Co Monaghan, Ireland 71 and Mes Hamilton of this place 65.  The aggregate of their ages is 604 years, the average is 75 ½.  If any family in the county can beat this record I am sure an account of it will prove interesting to the readers of THE TIMES.  We regret to learn that since the above was wwitten, Mrs. Geddes had died.


According to Eileen, the following applies :


John Davidson* 1775-1848 m Elizabeth 17??-1870.  They farmed at Drumneill and attended the Presbyterian Church at Legnacreeve, Clontibret, Co Monaghan.  Their farm at Drumneill, Co Monaghan sat directly on the Co Armagh border.  They had 12 children, all born at Drumneill, as follows :


1.  Thomas Davidson m Jemima Ross.  Child :


1.1.  Son born 1828.


2.  Mary Davidson 1800-1865 m John McNay.  In 1890 they lived in Logan Tp, Ontario.




3.  Alexander Davidson 1803-1861 m Mary Morrow.  Stayed in Ireland


4.  William Davidson 1807-1893 m Janet Barbour.  In 1890 lived in Carlingford, Ont. William trained for the Presbyterian ministry but found he was too nervous to preach so became a teacher.  In 1843 he came to New York City, but didn’t like it there (possibly being a Protestant Irish had its disadvantages) .  He moved to Kingston district of Ontario and then to Etobicoke, Ontario.  He homesteaded soon after at Carlingford, becoming the first school teacher there. 


5.  George Abraham Davidson 1808-1897 m in Ireland in 1828 to Martha Boyd. In 1890 lived in Carlingford. In 1845, Abraham and Martha  followed brother William to Canada.  They had five children born in Ireland and one more born in Canada.  His oldest son was Alexander Davidson.  They went on to homestead at Carlingford, where Abraham was the first Post Master.  Eileen is a descendant of Abraham and Martha. 


6.  Susannah Davidson 1811-1892 m James Hamilton.  In 1890 lived in Fullarton Tp, Ontario.


7.  Elizabeth Davidson 1812-1890 m Samuel Giddens.  Lived Wallace Tp, Ontario


8.  John Davidson 1815-1893 m Anna Marie Moore.  In 1890 lived in Drumquin, Co Tyrone, Ireland.  He was a Presbyterian minister serving all his ministry at Drumquin.


9.  Martha Davidson 1817-1893 m George Reaney.  In 1890 lived Downie Tp, Ont


10.  Andrew Davidson 1819-1907 m Ellen Haire.  In 1890 lived on the family farm at Drumneill, Co Monaghan.  His descendants were still farming the original Davidson homestead farm there in 1978.


11.  Robert Davidson 1823-1870 m a McKelvey.  In 1890 they lived in Belfast, Ireland.  He was a Presbyterian minister, serving at Lisbellaw, Co Fermanagh.


12.  Agnes Davidson 1825-1895 m George Hamilton.  In 1890 lived in Fullarton Tp, Ontario.



* John Davidson had a brother and sister as follows :


1.  Mary Ann Davidson b 17?? m ? Eagle

2.  Alexander Davidson b 17??



Martha Boyd had a sister as follows :


1.  Ellen Boyd 1804-1891 m James Donaldson 1799-1880.  They came to Canada in 1824 or 1825, first settling in Quebec where they lost several babies at birth, later settling in Matilda Tp, Dundas Co., Ont


Relatives in Ireland sent Eileen information on a family member that they can’t figure out how to fit into the tree as follows :


Jane Davidson m James Hamilton from Kilnacran, Co Tyrone.  Possible child :


- Rev William Ross Hamilton.  His funeral card passed down and in the possession of the Davidson family,  says that when he died, his body was returned to Omagh, Co Tyrone to be buried in the family burying ground at Edenderry.


Eileen also indicated that she has several Mitchell relatives buried at the Presbyterian Church at Drumhillery, Co Armagh.  It is also thought to be the burial place of her Boyd ancestors
