Henry Index Henry of MuntoberHenrys of DrumnagloghKildress - Henry Marriages Land Valuations for Muntober Unrelated Henrys

There are several different Henry families in this townland. To separate the groups they have been known as:

Ballintine Henry's
Strand Henry's
Civil Henry's
King's Henry's

It is from this last group that my main branch of Henrys are from. However I suspect that some of the families probably intermarried and so in the long run most of these Henry's may be related either through marriage or the distant past.

Muntober Henry family 1 - unknown branch

Muntober Henry family 2 - Civil Branch

Drumnamalta Henry family 3

Henry's from Drumnaglogh, Kildress Parish married into the Muntober Henry's
