Loves of Ballymoney, Antrim
I have been able to trace my Love lineage back to the birth of Robert Love in 1770 of Taghey/Craigatempin, Ballymoney, Antrim.
In a refernce cited in the book "The Love Family" by Franklin D Love, 1929, a Robert love settled in an area called Craigatempin about 4 miles east of Ballymoney prior to 1666. (Earl of Artrim trust records) Franklin claimed that Robert was problaly a son or grandson of William (Luiff)Love, who was the original Love to migrate from Scotland to Ulster. William Love settle in Cooly/Androme, Tyrone in 1629.
How was Robert Love of Craigatepim related to William Love of Androme?
Franklin list Sally Longwell as the wife of Matthew Love. Matthew Love was problaly born 1738 to 1742, however Sally Longwell from many other histories is listed as being born in mid 1600's? I now question Frnaklin's work.
Linton E. Love, a noted Canadian Love genalogist has published works on the Love descendants of Tyrone. He has been able to trace William Luiff-Love to Scotland and his family's settlement there.
