2nd Strabane was an Anti-Burgher (Secession) congregation erected c1816; the meetinghouse was situated at Leeper’s Brae in Strabane, drawing many farming families from around Strabane and the Lifford district in Co. Donegal. No early history of the congregation or the reason for its establishment has survived. First and Second Strabane united in 1911 and the combined congregation worshipped in the First Church in the Main Street.

 

Surviving registers for this congregation have been microfilmed by PRONI: Baptisms: 1844-1916; Marriages 1864-94 MIC 1P/10

 

The condition of the original records, a degree of difficulty in discerning the handwriting, and at times, poor quality of filming make transcription challenging and wherever possible the Leckpatrick, Camus and Clonleigh [Co. Donegal] tithe applotment books and Griffiths Valuation (1858) and personal announcements inserted in Londonderry newspapers have been consulted for confirmation of families and townland addresses.
