Pre 1845 records have been extracted from the filmed Church’s marriage register and those commencing 1845 are taken from Indexes to Registers of Civil Registration of Marriages in Ireland

I commenced this file in 1993 transcribing names and dates only from films of Second Ramelton marriages and baptisms held in PRONI, Belfast, with the intention of adding further data on five week-long subsequent forays, but this was not to be as there were always numerous new projects awaiting attention.

HISTORY OF SECOND RAMELTON PRESBYTERIAN CONGREGATION extracted from History of Congregations in the Presbyterian Church in Ireland 1610-1982 (Presbyterian Historical Society of Ireland, Belfast (1982)

When the Secession Presbytery of Limavady was formed in 1761, a cause in Ramelton is mentioned as being under their care. No further mention of it occurs until 1808 when it is again it is listed as “a constant or occasional supply”. The Rev. Dr. David Stewart says that “it probably maintained its existence in the intervening years as a society for prayer and conference”.

The first regular minister was Mr. Samuel Gamble (lic. Markethill, 1807) who was ordained on 22 Oct. 1808. He received a D. D. from the University of Glasgow in 1817, and died on 16 Dec. 1857. The Rev. Henry Gamble of Ballywalter was a son. He was followed by the Rev. James McLaughlin, a Limavady man who had been licensed in the R. P. Church, U. S. A. He was installed here on 7 Oct. 1859 and resigned on 16 Oct. 1871.

On 29 Feb. 1872, Mr. George Moody (lic. Belfast 1868) was ordained and he was called later to Harrogate Presbyterian Church, resigning here on 28 May 1888.

The fourth minister Mr. Alfred Torrens (lic. Aghohill 1888) was ordained on 17 Apr. 1888 and twenty-three years later the Second Congregation, and the Third Congregation {Scots’) were united.
