The Irvine Family

The surname Irvine, named after the Scottish town, possibly comes from 'yr (g)wen' the Brythonic Celtic phrase (ie. Old Welsh) that means 'the place of the white river'. Welsh was a language spoken in Scotland long before the arrival of the Angles, Saxons and Jutes into Britain. (Other significant Scottish place names that originate in Welsh are Perth and Aberfeldy.)

The following Irvines are related:

Elizabeth Irvine (abt 1785 - abt 29/7/1830)

Elizabeth Irvine 
abt 1786 - abt 29/7/1830

Elizabeth Irvine was Calum's and Jamie's great great great great grandmother.

Little is known of Elizabeth Irvine. At some stage prior to April 1819 she married George
Morrow, an Irish farmer from Magheraculmoney in Co. Fermanagh, with whom she had five children. The couple resided in Leaghan townland, in Magheraculmoney.

It is believed that Elizabeth passed away in Leaghan in July 1830, and was buried in St. Mary's graveyard, Magheraculmoney, on the 29th by the Rev. William Atthill. Although her age was not listed in the burial record, her husband was born in about 1786, from which a potential birth year for Elizabeth has been extrapolated (Source: PRONI MIC/1/67 Magheraculmoney Church of Ireland).
