Thankyou for marriages in the Ballymena area.

In Griffiths Valuation there were Andrew Martin snr & jnr at Martinstown, Parish Skerry.
Perhaps James Morton, son of Andrew, may have ben
James Martin ?
Perhaps the townland of Lisburn may have been Lisbreen ?
The map of the Ballymena District Council at :
shows Martinstown to be 12 kms north of Ballymena.
However, the PRONI lists the townland of Martinstown
as key #34 on their map which is very much south-east of their key #6 of the townland of Ballymena.
I am not sure if the townland of Martinstown would actually be #6 (not 34) on the PRONI map,
and the townland of Ballymena #25 (not 6).
These differences in the townland maps sure make it difficult for family research, especially if you want to go there for a visit.
