Ballynure Old Church Gravestones

This is in the townland of Toberdowney, parish of Ballynure, and barony of Lower Belfast and is severed from the older part of the village by the main road. Of the old parish church of Saint Mary Magdalene which stood within the graveyard, only the west doorway and part of a later porch now remain standing. Near the ruins are three family vaults. One (Dobbs) is Victorian with steeply pitched roof, while the earlier two (Dobbs and Ellis) are barrel vaulted.

Fagan noted sixty-one surnames from gravestones. The following names are included in his list but cannot now be found on pre- 1840 stones: Anderson, Barklimore, McConaghy, McCrom, Morrow, Macky, Rogers, Stephenson, Stevenson, Watson and Wiley. The earliest date of death to be read is 1628 (Clements), although Fagan has 1717 as the oldest legible stone.
