The Perry family of Seskinore and Perrymount, county Tyrone

Confusingly, there are two residences in the north of Ireland named Perrymount, after the family that owned them. This page related to the County Tyrone family, who later named their residence 'Seskinore'. If you are looking for the County Down family, then please go to their page.

County TyroneI have not done so much work on these northern families, but below are my attempts to create a pedigree for them, based on the information that I have. This has mainly been compiled from wills, but earlier pedigrees, including one by John O'Hart, have also been used. Some of these earlier pedigrees contain conclusions that conflict with information contained in Betham's will abstracts and so the below chart should be used with caution. If you are descended from this family, then I would suggest that you look at the primary sources yourself, and please contact me if you spot any mistakes!
