Date Notice
Oct 25 1776 [Married] Edward Ferguson, Co Donegal to Miss Anne Montgomery of same (Londonderry Journal)
May 21 1822 [Married] On the 7th instant, at Gortin, Mr. Wm. Montgomery, of Lifford, Land Surveyor, to Miss Jane Laughlin, daughter of Mr. Laughlin, of Gortin (Strabane Morning Post)
Apr 29 1823 We are authorised to state, that Mr. Gabriel Montgomery, of Lifford, is about to set out on a Survey of the Coast of Ennishowen, to complete its improvement of the Charts of the Maritime Ports of the County of Donegal. As this is a work of much consequence to the improvement of our navigation, trade, and fisheries, and as it is approved of, and patronized by, the North West Society, in furtherance of their patriotic views for the advancement of useful knowledge it is hoped that Mr. Montgomery will meet with that countenance and co-operation from the resident gentry on the coast, which are indispensably necessary for the success of his useful undertaking (Strabane Morning Post)
Dec 20 1825 [Died] At Inver, on Friday night, to the inexpressible grief of her husband, relations, and a numerous acquaintance, Mrs. Montgomery, wife of the Rev. A. Montgomery, Rector of the parishes of Inver and Templecrone, in the county of Donegal. Steady and sincere in her friendship - of a disposition humane and charitable, her worth and her many amiable and excellent qualities of mind, will long live in the memory of those who knew her (Strabane Morning Post)
Feb 20 1830 [Died] At Dieppe, at the age of 64, Sir Henry Conyngham Montgomery, of the Hall, county Donegal. He entered the cavalry in India, showing there great zeal and ability, he retired after a period of 20 years with the rank of Major. On his return to England, he was appointed Inspecting Field Officer and Commandant of the Yeomanry and Volunteers, with the rank of Lieut. Colonel, in county Donegal. He was born at the Hall, county Donegal, in the year 1765, and is succeeded by his son, Henry Conyngham Montgomery, now in the Civil Service in Madras (Londonderry Sentinel)
Mar 27 1830 [Died] On the 20th instant, at Convoy House, Convoy, county Donegal, in the 72nd year of her age, Mrs. Montgomery, of Convoy (Londonderry Sentinel)
Apr 21 1832 [Married] On Tuesday, the 10th inst., Mr. Joseph Starrett, of Roughan, to Mrs. Martha Montgomery, of Clooney. The happy bridegroom had seen the snows of nearly ninety winters, the fair and blushing bride of seventy, yet these could not chill their connubial prosperities. The ceremony performed, they were escorted home by hundreds of the youth of Ramelton, and by an amateur band, who performed a variety of lively tunes. It is anticipated that this example will not be lost on the bachelors of that neighbourhood, but will shame them out of their single misery – misery it is, aye is it (Londonderry Sentinel)
Sep 10 1833 MELANCHOLY ACCIDENT. On Friday evening week, as Mrs Montgomery, the lady of John Montgomery, of Bavarden, Esq., and family, were returning in an open barouche, from a visit to Andrew Ferguson, of Burt, Esq., and on their way to the Farm, the door of the vehicle, against which Miss Jane Emily Montgomery, of the age of three years, was standing, gave way, ~~ the most unfortunate consequence of which was that the child fell backwards upon the road. She was instantly replaced in the barouche, which was driven with all possible expedition to the house of Thomas Harvey, Esq., in Derry, where surgical and medical aid were promptly procured – but before that, life, we are sorry to say, had become extinct. It was found that the spine had been seriously injured. It is not for us to describe the anguish of mind endured by Mrs Montgomery from the time when the accident happened. Suffice to say, that it has cast a deep gloom over the large circle of her connexions and friends in the neighbourhood (Strabane Morning Post)
Mar 8 1834 [Married] On the 19th ult., by the Rev. Robert Gray, George Montgomery, Esq., Officer of Excise, to Mary, eldest daughter of Mr. Alexander Leathem, of Burt (Londonderry Sentinel)
Mar 18 1834 OUTRAGE. On Saturday the 1st inst. as John Hamilton was returning from the market town of Raphoe, he was waylaid by two men, convenient to Convoy, who beat him unmercifully and cast him into a ditch, leaving him almost bereft of life. Examinations have been sworn against the aggressors, one of whom has given in bail, the other has absconded. We feel confident, however, that Robert Montgomery, Esq. the resident and spirited landlord, will use every exertion, not only to bring the offenders to justice, but also to prevent the recurrence of such an atrocious deed (Strabane Morning Post)
