I have an earthenware jug with the vendor’s address of “Richard Thompson, 17 Church Street, Belfast" and I had assumed it was from Belfast, NY but no such address or street exists. I was more than surprised that it traveled across the Atlantic and ended-up along the shores of Lake Ontario! thumbup

Thank you so very much for taking the time to post this information. It was truly incredible to come across on the internet! Norah Haughton was a direct relation of mine. Her father's sister, Kathleen McQuillan, was my grandmother.

I am extremely interested in making contact with any other family members who can help fill in the gaps of our family's history.

Thank you!

I am flabbergasted! I have been researching my family history for 15 years and I never knew that my grandfather only "joined the colours" in October 1918. How do you know this> have you found his army records at Kew? If so, what else do they say? How do I access them?

I recently viewed a posting of 'LOST PHOTO'S. RUC-RIC -B SPECIALS sent to me by a friend and to my pleasant surprise the 'Entry' regarding the 'RUC PACKING NOTE' refers to my Uncle 'JACKIE' (John) BRADLEY who was a Baker in the Ormeau Bakery, Ormeau Rd Belfast. In one of the accompanying photograhs I 'think I can pick him out' from the 1st Nth Btn; Belfast District 9.3 1922 (32). As he was born around 1910 I would guess 1932 to be more realistic date. He had a brother Richard Samuel BRADLEY who was in the RUC last serving as a Sergt; in NEWRY Co Down

Their son John married Mary Jane Harpur. It appears the Harpur's came from Newry, Lissadian, Rathcarbry area and the Cleland's from Rathcarbry. wink

Found your site by total chance this evening whilst searching for any information after 1911 Census on my great grandmothers brother Ernest Henry Flatman. I didn't find him but I did find out that his mother, Mrs Annie Flatman was still alive and well in 1918. So that is something! She was born in India and had her children everywhere from India to Kildare to England and seems to have ended her days in Belfast.

They would appear to have always been in the North Belfast area, a range of different streets from 1897 to 1918. Any information would be much appreciated.

Hi. Found your site while doing some research on the McNeill family tree. Was looking for my grandfather who survived both world wars. (James Bristow McNeill) Born in Bushmills and lived in Sherwood street Belfast before marrying and moving to Ballyclare. I have no idea which regiment he was in. Possibly the same as his brother. I found his brother Robert Boyd McNeill who, according to your statistics, died on 1st July 1917. We always thought he died on 1st July 1916. I will have to try and find out more unless you can shed more light on it.
Very well done.

I often dip into your website. Our family used to holiday in Bangor in the sixties when it was a proper seaside resort, I have magical memories if it then. I was delighted to com across your Bangor Street Directory of 1965, it listed two of the places we used to stay in.
Best regards and good luck with the site

Hi Mary, I have used your wonderful site before researching on behalf of my now deceased sister, it was so helpful to find out where he was commemorated -before she died we to her to see the memorial in Surrey.

Trying to trace my great, great grandfather Daniel Russell married to Sarah Wilkinson in 1844. We know from marriage certs that he was deceased by Aug 1871. He was a seaman/ sailor and am well and truly stuck any help, pointers would be gratefully accepted.

Keep up the excellent work
