  • Notes 


    • The Rev. James B. Leslie in his book Armagh Clergy and Parishes (William Tempest, Dundalk, 1911) refers to Ford on page 386:
      '386 PARISHES OF MULLABRACK AND MULLAGLASS.
      ...
      MULLAGLASS. — (Co Armagh.)
      Incumbents.
      ...
      1885—James Madden Ford, inst. May 26 (D.B.), son of Rev. A. L. F., and brother of Canon Lockett F., of Ardee ; B.A. (St. Edm. Hall, Oxf.) 1880 ; ord. D. 1879; P. 1880; C. St. Thomas', Seaforth 1879-80; C. White Roding 1880-2 ; R. Diamond 1882-5 ; res. Mullaglass Oct. 10, 1895, and
      and became R. Yate (Gloucs.) 1896; m. 18 April, 1887, Jane Seton, only dau. of Parker G. Synnot, of Lurgana, Co. Armagh (B.L.G.).'

      The 1881 census gives his occupation as curate of White Roothing (rather than White Roding). James was boarding with the family of Alfred Oliver, a farmer.

      In 1901 he was a Church of England clergyman, living at Yate Rectory, Gloucestershire. His wife Jane was at Ballymoyer at this time, and their daughter Constance, then aged 13, was a boarder with Sarah Drew and her daughter Helen in Oxford, Oxfordshire.

      A friend wrote an obituary for the Rev J. M. Ford, published in The Times newspaper on 7 Sep 1935. It gave details of his career in the church, and noted that he was survived by a widow and one daughter.
