The Birth Date is a rough estimate. See the text for details.



John BRITTON.[1] . May have been born in Ireland, but there is no supporting evidence of this.

The couple may have lived in Magheranageeragh Townland as there is a reference to this townland for first born daughter Anne.[2] They were also married there at the Devenish Church of Ireland, on 30 Apr 1805.[3]

Possible family

John may have been the child of an Anglican Clergyman in Boho, Fermanagh. DNA evidence is mounting to suggest he is related to the family of Unknown Patriarch Britton.
