What a marvellous collection Mary. Many thanks. I was able to find the street where I was born, and two others that I lived in, from the 1880 directory! I own and moderate a group of Nor'n Iron folk scattered all over the world (call them expats). All with a common heritage. We are about 70 strong and our mode is email. I was born just off the Shankill and now live in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. We are non-partisan but sometimes a wee bit of green or orange just might creep in. At the end of the day however we all are friends. You would be amazed to learn how many hook-ups have been made over the last ten years, from people known and near relatives or neighbours. If you would like to take a wee gander then write me at jrj2@shaw.ca and we will see what transpires. Always looking for new members.

Very interesting

Looking for H.Liddell, who was given a silver souvenir, apparently by the village of Donacloney, of the night of 24-5 April 1914. (UVF historical event)

Not related to me, and I'm not a genealogist, but there were Armstrongs in that village.

Like many others, I've just stumbled across this wonderful site. I'm researching HODGEN (other names ALLEN, NELSON, WILEY, JACKSON & IRWIN), and have found my family in Lisburn in the 1820s, a possible sighting in Belfast in 1837 in the Freeholders Records. The family were in Manchester by 1851, so I'm just trying to fill in some gaps. Your 1843 Directory is very interesting. I'll be back to read some more.

I have just spent an hour (when I should have been in bed) reading through the 1843 street directory for Belfast. Fascinating. My Liggett forebears from Fivemiletown must have thought Belfast to be paved in gold. Brilliant and a lot of hard work on your part. Thanks

Hello. I was directed to this site. I am doing some research on some dishes that were handed down to me by a great grandmother. She had worked for the wealthy colgate family in Upstate NY. They had given her some dishes that are traced back to Ireland and the info I do have as of now is this:Annesley family in Ireland is where they come from.....
Earl of Annesley of Castlewellan, County Down, Ireland
or Viscount Valentia of County Kerry, Ireland.
They are Worcester porcelain, by a good manufactuer Flight Barr & Barr circa 1820-5)
the dishes have a MOOR head on the front and words that say Vertutis Amore.
I am trying to find out as much as possible about the family and basically trace them back to the colgate and my great grandma.
Its very interesting. I have never seen dishes quite like these and I cannot find anyone else that can help me figure them out, history, etc.
Thanks!!!!!

Both went to New Zealand in the 1860's. I have found their graves in NZ but I want to trace their families who lived around Carryduff Nthn Ireland, near Belfast.
They have relative a Doctor Cuming who practised in the Belfast area in the 1960's. He had a daughter Christine who was studying at Belfast University around 1968 /69. I have lost contact with them and would be grateful for any info. which would enable me to re-establish contact. question

I congratulate you for your wonderful website. I have searched for my Grandmother's Belfast folks -- Goff for a long time. Her father was in the military and later a Commissionaire. As a result of my search re their address in 1907 on RootsChat, I received the suggestion to check your website. I knew the address and found them with the spelling Gough.

As I haven't yet discovered his regiment, and know the family lived in the barracks in the late 1880's, I wonder if you can tell me whether they would be in a directory? Again, thanks.

A very interesting site! My son is Robert John Morrow, the decendent of the Morrows of Rockville, Ballyjamesduff. The flag that once belonged to the quartermaster of the local militia of Bally'duff was subsequently presented to the Ulster Museum in Belfast so that it could be preserved. I was a member of a small group of Morrows who made an appointment to look at the flag around 1999 at the museum. I would be interested in any further details of the "Family Alter" by Robert Morrow. thumbup

Love your work Mary - Congratulations.I am looking for further info on my LENNON connections.Wondering if any of this rings a bell with you.

John LENNON born 1814 Niblock had a son Henry LENNON born 1840 Niblock who married a Jane BRADY.I believe the BRADY & LENNON families were both publicans.Henry & Jane had a daughter Mary Brady LENNON born 1857 Belfast.They also had a son Henry Wild LENNON.There appears to be some connection with America with Mary Brady Lennon's parents .Her parents may have been living there at some time.
Mary Brady Lennon married Patrick Joseph DOUGAL in 1877 & immigrated to Australia in 1879.
