Nobles Of Fermanagh

Published in Family, Personal History

My great grandfather, John Noble, was born in 1817 in Maguiresbridge. He had at least 2 siblings – Ralph, born 1811, and Alexander, born in 1818. Their father’s name is unknown and their mother was Mary Haley. Ralph was married in Ireland circa 1835 to a Rachel ??. They all came to Canada with their mother (not sure if the father was already deceased as there is no record here in Canada) and Ralph’s two daughters, Elizabeth and Ann. They settled in Northumberland County, Ontario, Canada circa 1840. Alexander married Elizabeth Maize and John married a Jane McMann – daughter of Robert McMann and Sarah Gibson.

I have been trying to track this family line back before the 1800’s without any success to date. There is a possibility that they have descended from Major Arthur Noble born in 1654 and who fought in the Battle of Derry in 1689.
