    I’ve done research on the Ballycroy Conway family.
    The Tithe Applotment Book for the Civil Parish of Kilcommon (Erris/East) was submitted on 25th February 1834 at which time there were the following tithe payers named Conway recorded in the parish.
    Logduff Beg Mary, Neil & Patrick Conway 251 acres £17. 15s. 8d. Real Value per annum.

    The Conways who were driven from Donegal in the 17th century settled in Ballycroy. James Conway lived in Logduff and one branch of his family came and settled in Shramore and another in Shragraddy, convenient to Ballycroy in 1841. Father Michael Conway who was parish priest of Bangor and his brother, Most Rev. Dr. Hugh Conway, Bishop of Killala, 1872-93, were members of the family that settled in Shramore, one mile from Bangor. Pat Conway who bought and repaired the public house (now owned by his grandson Mr. Hugh Conway), belonged to the Shragraddy family. Source: 5th & 6th Grade Classes of Bangor National School (ca.1938).

    Mary Conway, wife of James Conway, died at Lugduff Lodge, Ballycroy, on October 19, 1839, aged 72 years. She was buried in the Fahy Cemetery.

    They had eight sons, including Rev. Michael Conway 1791-1852 and Bishop Hugh Conway 1816-1893.
