I am related to the Clarkes from Bessbrook, Co. Armagh. There were a few Clarke families in the area but I have not traced mine back as far as you have. The records I have are for George Clarke and Elizabeth McGiffin, but recently I have come across a copy of an early census and George (my ggrandfather) seems to have had his father live with him and his family. I will have to look up my records to see what his name was and I will get back to you. My mother is a Clarke to her maiden name. She will be 87 in February but she is very sharp and remembers loads about Bessbrook and I have heard her mention Clarke cousins who lived in College Square, Bessbrook. I would say that your relation and my ggrandfather were probably related but what that relationship would have been I think would be pretty hard to find out. Some of these days I am going to go to our local Public Records office in Belfast because I have a lot I would like to look up. It is in Balmoral Avenue, Belfast if you would like to get in touch with them, they may be able to help. In the meantime if I find anything out I will let you know. If you want to contact me my email address is

Kind regards, Anne
