Cully

I can trace my family back to Robert Cully who married a Mary Martin and had at least four children, George born 11/3/1866,
Jane Martin born 21/9/1868, Bessie born 27/12/1870, Mary born 24/3/1872 and lived in Lurganbane, (at least from 1863 to 1872)

I have found five people that I share a common ancestor with. These are all
McCully's and it is believed that they originate from the village of Cully
in Normandie then moved to Scotland about 1550 and became McCully's and then
to Down about 1850 where they became Cully. The five of us that share a
common ancestor can all trace our family to county Down. George Cully moved
to Brisbane in 1885 where most of my family still live.
