Lurgan Coat of Arms The Armagh Guardian

3 October, 1902  


The longest courtship on record was probably that of Clements Bingham a shoemaker living at Lurgan, Ireland. For nearly fifty years the course of true love ran smoothly enough between him and his inamorate, but somehow they could never bring themselves up to the sticking point, and Bingham's death occurred while the luckless lovers were yet leisurely making up their minds.


The information on this website is free and will always be so. However, there are many documents and records that we would like to show here that are only available for sale. If you would like to make a donation to the Lurgan Ancestry project, however small (or large!), to enable us to acquire these records, it would be very much appreciated. We could cover our pages in Goggle Ads to raise money, but feel that this would detract from the information we are trying to provide. You can also help us to raise money by purchasing some of our ebooks on our sister website:

The Lurgan Ancestry Project is a not for profit website, all monies raised from the site go back into it.
