    My gg grandmother was Sarah Bredin (Braden in Canada now) married to Robert Henry pre 1820. The family lived at Condermott /Glendermott and emigrated to Canada around 1845. Their son William Henry who died in 1889 left a sum of money to William Henry  Bredin in Londonderry.
    It is likely we are related to thiese people; an old letter mentions Ballymagrorty.

      Hello Sean,
      In the Registry of deeds project Ireland there is a marriage settlement dated 1776 concerning John Bredin of Ballymagroarty ( my Dad’s relatives), and Isabella Moore daughter of Ezekiel Moore of Ballymagroarty.
      I’d love to know where you found the information about Yally Bredin and do you think Yally is short for something?

      Dear Lynne,
      My name is Julian Margaret Bentley Edelman . I believe you connected with my brother Sean Bentley some years back while he was researching our family tree on our dad’s side. Our father was George Nelson Bentley IV (1918-1990). His father was George Bentley III, and his father was John Bentley– married to Margaret Bredin. Our great grandmother Margaret Bredin Bentley was the daughter of William Mitchell Bredin (1823-1885) and Sarah Shaw Bredin. My brother traced our family back a bit further as well. My husband David and I will be traveling to Ireland later this year and hope to visit some places where my ancestors once lived. If you have any suggestions for us we would love to hear them. Thanks so much, sincerely Julian
