Fermanagh Gold Introduction
Name:  Karen Hitchcock (nee Guy) of Auckland, NZ
My Web Site:

Can anybody add anything to what I already know of my ancestry. My greatgrandfather Andrew Guy emigrated to NZ from Co Down in 1875. He left behind a brother who was a Presbyterian Minister (James McFarland Guy born 1 August 1846 d 3 October 1922). My grandfather visited him when he was on leave during or after WWI.

From investigation here I believe that James and Andrew's father was Rev William James Guy (1818-1873), minister of Lowtherstown (Irvinestown) Co Fermanagh. I am a little unclear as to whether James may also have been Minister of this area. I have also located a marriage at Derryvullan North between William James Guy and Eliza Keys in 1873 - this may have been another brother.

A memorial was erected in the Irvinestown cemetery to William James Guy and Sarah Guy (d 1894 aged 65 years) by Ellen Guy - not sure if she was their daughter.

Can anybody fill in any details of family coming from the children of William James and Sarah Guy. I have all the NZ contingent covered - just looking for the Irish side!
