Ireland Native
John Britton was born in Ireland.
This profile is part of the Britton Name Study.

John BRITTON[1] was probably born in Fermanagh Ireland, but there is no supporting evidence of this.

John married Mary Hamilton at the Devenish Church of Ireland, on 30 Apr 1805.[2]

The couple may have lived in Magheranageeragh Townland as there is a reference to this townland for first born daughter Anne.[3]


The paternal line is confirmed. [4] DNA evidence is mounting to suggest that John was the child of an Anglican Clergyman in Boho, Fermanagh - Patriarch Britton.
