Where to begin?
living on a farm in Cullenane
NOTE: This is a work in progress page and a number of links will not work ... alot of the information here is only guess work.
Theory (X) ___ The earliest Lendrum:( I can find as of this date) is Andrew Lendrum - born 1648 and living on a farm in Cullenane
(Spelling could be Cullynane), Blessingbourn, near Fivemiletown, in parish Clogher - country Tyrone, Ireland. c 1714
To be verified.
Theory (Y) ___They moved to Ireland 1690 (with William of Orange ) to Corlea county, Tyrone.
Theory (Z) ___A son of the Earl of Buchen took the surname Lendrum.
_____________(Derived from the place where he lived in north eastern Aberdeenshire).
Putting together information from other Lendrum family connections, gathering names, places, dates: reading books from libraries, government departments (Archway Records) family web-pages online and joining the New Zealand Society of Genealogists - has helped to reach this understanding.
Yet still unsure if the parents of Lendrums who came to New Zealand are connected to the following Lendrum families?
Family research [info] tells us, a Mrs. Lendrum (Senior), mother to Andrew and maybe a brother John were living near Fivemiletown (No mention of husband) could be living with uncles and aunties - Fleming, Brown and Wilson. (Early Lendrum Family Tree - (Attachment))
At sometime later, maybe Andrew married Mary and they moved to a farm in Mullaghmore - only up the road. (See map) - (Maybe where they grew Flax?)[FG]
Andrew [C] and Mary had children: son Andrew (Jr) (C1) stayed in Ireland - Robert [C2] and George (Cousin) [C4] left for New Zealand in 1862 and started our lineage.
A document shows that in 1796 - a James and Andrew Lendrum of Clogher and Dromore parishes in county Tyrone, were Flax growers.
From a document of Landowners in county Tyrone, Ireland as of 1876 - shows: LENDRUMS
