Although this Palmer family distinguishes where they are from I believe they were all originally the same family. As the families grew they would have to acquire more land for sons when they married as only the eldest son would inherit the farm.
The oldest grave is for an Adam of Portavogie but in the same grave there is a John of Ballyeasborough, born 1749.
