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.

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

Other Henry families Relationships Unknown

Muntober Townland is 613 acres, in Kildress Parish, Dungannon Upper Barony

I have found this entry for a Mary Anne Henry from Killycurragh which is very close to Muntober - which could be for the above Mary, if so she was baptised in 1867 in Derryloran Parish Church.


Mary Henry and Glasgow George Henry definitely came to Australia (possibly before 1893) as they both married their partners in QLD Australia.

There also appears to be a Glasgow Henry in Drumnamalta in plot 8 noted in15A (changed from Robert Henry can't read the date), 15B, 15C, 15D, 15E (changed to John Greene 1903)


David Henry married Mary Jane Glasgow in Orritor Presbyterian Church 30th Oct 1884. Mary's father was David and they were from Ballinagilly / Ballynagilly in Lissan Parish nearby. In GV (1859) there is only one Glasgow entry:

Griffiths Valuation
8 Henry Glasgow Mary E.S. Trench H L 36-3-20 2-10-0 1-5-0 3-15-0


I assume that Henry Glasgow may be the father of David Glasgow, but I would need to check the later land valuations.

David and Mary Jane later emigrated to Australia before 1901 so they don't appear in the census.

There is also a Glasgow Henry in another household in Muntober - who is 16 years old and the son of John and Mary Henry.

Possible Sibling of Glasgow Henry?

Baptised: April 22 1841

Born 25 September 1838?

Christian Name: Esther?

Parents Christian names: Thomas & ? Elizabeth

Surname: Henry

Abode: Montobber or Killycurragh

Occupation: Farmer


Sam Winter

Mary Winter

May Winter

Church: Derryloran Parish Church


Could this be a sibling of Glasgow? - who based on information on Marriage certificate, and Valuation Records may have parents Thomas and Eliza. The date would make her younger than Glasgow who was born in 1834.

The entry next to this baptism is for a Thomas Winter (parents Samuel and Mary, and the witnesses listed are May Henry, Thomas Henry and possibly a Dr Barder?) Perhaps the two families are linked?
