Griffith Valuation occurred in Armagh 1864. Mother's Parish was Newry in the Poor Law Union of Newry. A PLU cover
12 mi. so James Quinn could of been from another Parish but within the PLU.

Terence,Peter, James Quinn Parish Killevy, PLU Newry has civil registrations of bmd from 1864-1950's


James Quinn age 67, died 1865, estimated born 1798 based on age given at death Vol.1, Pg. 52 #101582 (LDS)

There are also some probate records
There are others but since Mary was born 1811 thought stick close to her age

another possible

James Quin age 72 died 1877 estimate of birth year 1805
from age given at death

Peter Quinn died 1907 age 60 Newry born est.1847

Terence died Oct-Dec, 1902 Armagh age 66 (est 1836)
Terence died Oct 1911 age 65 est.birth year 1846 1901 Census

No James Quinn of Armagh in the Transportation records of 1791-1853, other Quinn's 141 of them, ages didn't match or wrong counties etc. Very sad to read this when a man whose stole food and clothes and was leaving behind a wife, children and mother - how did they fend for themselves.

The british telephone book for Northern Ireland shows
61 Quinn's and 3 McEvoys. They come with a full address and postal code
