Westport Presbyterian Church Marriages 1825-57

The congregation was formally organised in 1823.  Richard Smyth, the third minister of the congregation, later gained prominence becoming a professor at Magee College, Derry, and then M.P. for Co. Londonderry, 1874-8.

Interesting features of the marriage records include details of the bride or the groom coming from England or Scotland, the inclusion of the names of witnesses and often the relationship of the witnesses to the bride and groom.  The modern townland names have all been identified (given in square brackets) except for one.
