Compiled and submitted by Faye Logue, Tully, Queensland, Australia
With assistance from Len Swindley

These marriages have been extracted from LDS films of the Civil Registration of Marriages in Ireland, copies of Marriage Certificates, Transcriptions of Certificates from Emerald Ancestors and by searches of their database at , along with personal notices inserted in the LONDONDERRY SENTINEL 1829 – 1869 and the LONDONDERRY STANDARD.


Please note that to-date not all marriages in this church are included in this file, as it is an ongoing project. Full details of all marriages from 15 May 1845 to 18 November 1846 have been extracted. From then up to 23 September 1929 many marriages have been noted, but with quite a few gaps and most of these don’t have the full details. and should be consulted for more information.


The Glendermott Presbyterian Church was established in 1654 and is situated near Drumahoe, Co. Londonderry, only a few miles north of the border between Counties Londonderry and Tyrone at Donagheady Parish. Being so close to this border quite a few marriages in the church were for people from Co Tyrone.
