Posted: Thu Feb 22, 2007 9:46 pm   Post subject: The Arrells of Rocktown Castle Dawson
 
Hi All,

Your help and any assistance would be most gratifying in my quest to further my knowledge of my Mum's family the Arrells of Rocktown.

Mum's dad was John Harold Arrell his wife was Jeannie nee Mc Caughey the had a farm and as far as I know Tom Arrell had the farm next door, but he moved into Rowans Gift. Mum's name is Isabella her brothers were: Matthew, Scott, John, William, Robert, Samuel. Her sisters were: Martha, Margaret, Marie, Elizabeth, Ena. Mums grandparents were Robert Arrell and his wife Eliza. The family grave is located in Castledawson. Any information that can be of assistance in helping me with the Arrell family would be much appreciated.

I thank you in advance.

Mary,

Thank you for your research, the Arrels of 1918 are a possible match, Mum was born on the farm in 1913. Just wonder if the Thomas Arrell (spade manufacturer) is the same Tom Arrell that moved into Rowans Gift.

Thanks for the info Mary.

I know we shouldn't presume in genealogy but sometimes, when you get a really unusual name, I think it's pretty safe to do so.

I have been trying to find a list of Towns to match the Counties for the middle 1800's, no luck so far, if anyone spots a site that might have a list of old towns for the Towns listed on the Slaters thread, I'd appreciate a heads-up.
Thank you
Mary

nb
the new towns don't match, have tried several sites

Mary,

One wee question before I send a query.

Can I make requests about people who lived all over the country, not just Belfast? Gilford and Killinchy for example?

OK, let's give Gilford a shot.

I'm lookin for any information on people in the 1840s Gilford area with the name of Richard Bright and/or Richard Curry?

Any info would be appreciated.

EE I had a look for Killinchy, even got my son to check incase it was my eyesight, couldn't find it, Ros Davies has this great map though

http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~rosdavies/MAPS/KillinchyTownlands.htm

 

What would be the nearest on the list of Towns I have to it because it might have been incorporated with another Town?

Thanks Mary,

I'll dig a wee bit farther.

We talked previously about Richard Bright's and Richard Curry's grandson, Richard Bright Curry. Thanks to you and the UHF I have the latter and his Ma and Da sorted out, but the last I had on the first 2 was Gilford or Tullylish.

There are some Currys and one Bright in Griffith's Eval of 1864, but I'm not sure if they are the ones. Just wondered if there was something more substantial.

As for Killinchy, let me dig some more and post as far as I have gone with it.

Thanks again.

Thanx Mary.

Sorry I missed this reply until now.

Tullylish looks like a quaint wee place worth a visit the next time I'm over.

Dromore's near Gilford isn't it?

Could I have a lookup in Slaters for Nesbitt in Carnmoney
I am having difficulty finding a map of the area and some of the townlands I am coming across makes me wonder if they are made up
Wheres Ballyahaughy? I know they must all be near to one another

Ok Carnmoney, you ask like I know where that is I checked Antrim and Carrickfergus but you need to find the places for me to check from this list as I haven't a clue where to look other than in this Index.

Carnmoney is North of Belfast in Antrim Ballyduff is a townland within the Carnmoney borders, Its the Parish of Connor possibly the next district from Ligonel Belfast

Its now part of Glengormley Area

I will update this post when I get a map and begin to understand what my mouth thinks is sense, I unfortunately my knowledge of the area is poor

That's my problem too, I don't know where places are and I have to Google them to find out, I did Check Antrim and Neighbourhood, which lists names but no Nesbitts and Antrim, which doesn't list names just a description of the area. Checked Carrickfergus as I saw mention of that in relation to Carnmoney.
I thought for sure I'd find Ballyahaughy or something similar in Eddies Rolls of Honour, because there's every type of Bally in there but no joy, also check the Ulster Covenant, Ballyahagh is the closest but that's in Tyrone, also checked Carnmoney in the UC, hoping to find a place that is listed in the Index of Slaters, nope.
Where did you see Ballyahaughy, was it on a birth certificate?

Yes the name is on a birth transcript, not an original. Dont worry for the time being let me source a map of the area, trouble is I keep buying maps of other areas in case they come in handy and don't find the one that would be really helpful,I will let you know when I am more prepared, you never know that information may just be round the Corner.

Of course what compounds the whole thing is that it could be a local name... there are plenty of those... especially in the like of the ROH transcripts as Mary mentioned... which aren't on any official records... like maps

post moved by Mary - original post by Eastender

Posted: 14 Feb 2007 11:39 pm Post subject: Family Tree

My tree isn't on those fancy pages online, but here are the names I've dug up so far from circa 1800-1840, responsible indirectly for yours truly;

Andrew McKinstry, Jane McBroom; Robert Shepherd, Elizabeth Martin - Ballyeaston and Ballycorr County Antrim.
Jackson Wallace, Martha Rainey - Belfast.
Alexander Larmour, Margaret McKeag - Killinchy County Down.
John Curry, Eliza Bright - Gilford County Down.
William Creelman, Margaret Smyth - Belfast.
John Cumming, Johanna Crowe - Belfast and Dublin.
William Adgey, Agnes Bailie - Belfast.
Samuel McKeag, Agnes Gilmore - Boardmills and Killinchy County Down.

They have a lot to answer for!

I was able to take m'wife's father's side back to the late 1500s to a place just outside Zurich. All done on the LDS site. Amazin so it was!

Absolutley fantastic site, well done!
Have hit a brick wall. My great uncle is a Henry Carney born circa 1919 (dont know where as I cannot find his birth record although I have found all his younger siblings and his death certificate) His father was also called Henry Carney and there is a rumour that he was from scotland and was possibly in the Black Watch or the Scottish Cameronians - as identified by a supposed photo of him - although its not definate that it is the Scottish Cameronians as the cap badge is not completely visible. Anway Henry senior married a Margaret Ogilby and they lived in the Shankill area of Belfast. Henry senior was born circa 1893 (from his death certificate) To complcate matters further his dad waas also a Henry Carney although I know even less about him and his possible wife/mother of the chidren died a Mary Cotter!!!! If ANYONE out there has ANY info whatsoever on my Carneys, I would love to hear from you, this is driving me crazy!

Keep up the great work Mary!!!

Gary

Dear Gary, I would love to find out what info that you have on the Carney/Kearney family names. There is another lady researching Carney from Belfast and Scotland areas also. Please, contact me and let us see if we can get a connection going. Maggie

Mary.
I have sent a reply to Celtic Moon by email with some of the info about my Carneys on which I have hit the brick wall. Here is the info I have sent her for the other posters...............

My grandfather James Carney was born in Argyle street in the shankill area in 1926. He had other brothers and sisters most of which I have birth dates and places for, except the oldest sibling Henry (I'll call him junior)He married a Catherine Fitzpatrick in St Annes in 1944 and they later lived in Paris Street, Belfast. I have Henry's death certificate, incidentally he was killed after getting involved in a fight in the Rinkha dance hall in Larne in 1948 aged 29, so I know roughly his age. This would have him born circa 1919. I cannot find his birth certificate so do not know where and when he was born. I had someone check the Scottish records in Edinburgh for a Henry carney during this period turning up nothing, I have also checked the GRO in Belfast, turning up nothing.

Couldnt find them in the census either.

Buried in Belfast City Cemetery, apparently there are no headstones.

Now his father was also called Henry Carney who was ACCORDING to my late grandfather, Scottish. This Henry (senior) married a Margaret Ogilby at St Annes, Belfast in April 1920, he was 27 and she was 26. I have a photograph, which according to my late grandfather was this Henry. He is dressed in Army fatigues and my grandfather always insisted that he was in the Scottish Black Watch. I had the photograpgh looked at professionally but unfortunately that whilst the photo is in good condition, whatever way the subject is standing the regimental cap badge is hidden. The best guess from the identifier was the Scottish Cameronians, although I cannot be certain. I cannot even be certain that this is indeed that Henry, I just have to go by what I have been told. I have searched the National Archives in case he was awarded medals but unless I am not doing something right it has not beared fruitation. This Henry died in Belfast, 54 Lisburn Road (hospital?) in 1943 aged 49 at this time the Carneys were living in Walton Street in the Shankill. He had a partner or wife called Mary, I do not know her maiden name or where she was from, or whether they even married but she died a Mary Cotter in 1945 aged 73 after marrying a Robert Cotter from the Shankill area (dont have any info on this person or events). Henry (junior, I think) is on her death certificate as her grandson)

Anway the story carries on......this Henry (senior) also had a father called Henry, when born? where born? I do not know. Scotland? Possibly. I have checked Scotlands people online but with the information that I have, I wouldnt even know if I found him if it was right under my nose!!

Gary!!!

PS Incidentally the names I am interested in are Carney, Annesley, Ogilby, McCluskey, Fletcher, Wilson, Cotter, to name but a few.

not sure if this is the correct place for this topic, but I would like to find out the history of Larchfield House in Lisburn. My great grandfather worked there for 60 years for Mr OB Graham who apparently was a magistrate.

I would like to know is there anywhere I can find out who else worked here, and also what my ggrandfather is likely to have worked at. I know he lived in the gate lodge but that is all I know. Any help would be appreciated.

http://www.proni.gov.uk/records/private/mussen.htm DEAD LINK

 

Summary.
The Mussenden papers comprise c.1,100 documents, 1694-1831, consisting of c.650 estate papers relating to the Larchfield estate, Annahilt, Co. Down, and to Mussenden property in Belfast, 1694-1831, and c.450 business papers of Daniel Mussenden, an important Belfast merchant (d.1763), and of his son and successor, William, 1712-1794.

By the late 1750s Mussenden seems to have acquired enough wealth to retire from the business and go landed. His new country residence at Larchfield, between Lisburn and Ballynahinch, was ready in 1757, and he moved out of Belfast.

thank you both of you, I will try the Lisburn historical society. Eddie C those papers will be very interesting for the history, it looks like the Mussendens had the house before OB Graham as my ggrandfather lived there from about 1860

Hello and Welcome - Please check the links section for the already online Street Directories on my site

for Street Directory enquiries-
Please try and give us all the information you have

If you do have a query with very little information, post it anyway, we will always try our best

If you have first names, trades and particularly specific streets, it makes life so much easier, unusual names might be found in the alphabetical section of the directories but not all the people listed in the streets section are listed in the alphabetical section, especially labourers, sorry about that, not my fault.

Childrens names are NOT listed in the street directories, only the main house tenant or owner.

We will do our best to get back to you with results asap but most of us work (occasionally ) for a living.

IntelliTXT is NOT visible once you become a member of this forum :- IntelliTXT is that aggravating underlined text that activates when you mouse over it.

Natter Room - talk about anything you like BUT no swearing, no fighting, no sectarianism and be nice please, people who are persistantly rude will feel my wrath

1861
BELFAST AND COUNTY DOWN RAILWAY
DIRECTORS
Wm. Sharman Crawford, jun., Esq., Crawfordsburn.

1861
BELFAST DISTRICT HOSPITAL FOR THE INSANE POOR
Falls Road.
Established in 1829, for the relief of the insane poor, pursuant to Act of Parliament.
The district comprehends the Counties of Antrim and Down, and the County of the Town of Carrickfergus.
The Board of Governors meet the first Monday of every month, at one o'clock, PM.
No patient can be received without a medical certificate of insanity, and an affidavit of inability to meet the expenses
of a private asylum. Printed forms may be had at the Hospital, to which all communications are to be addressed
(post-paid) to the resident physician.
BOARD OF GOVERNORS APPOINTED BY THE LORD LIEUTENANT AND PRIVY COUNCIL OF IRELAND
Major John Sharman Crawford, J.P.

1861
BANGOR
Bangor, a seaport town in the County of Down, ten miles distant from Belfast.
The terminus of the County Down Railway at Newtownards is within three miles and a half from Bangor.
The town is very ancient. It is said the first stone and limestone house built in Ireland was built in Bangor.
It is stated that Saint Comgall founded an abbey about the middle of the sixth century, which was burned
in 674 and rebuilt in 1125, by Malachy O'Morgair, then abbott; he also added an oratory or chapel, of white
stone, from which the place derived the name of Beauchoir, now Bangor, signifying the "White Church" or "Fair Choir."
Part of the abbey ruins still exist, and the traces of the foundations show it to have been of great extent.
The town has greatly improved within the last few years; the harbour is good and commodious - there is a good pier,
a steamboat wharf, and fine beach, well adapted for bathing. Near the beach are many neat furnished houses and villas,
built for the accommodation of parties visiting this favourite bathing shore. Two steamers ply between Belfast and Bangor
thrice daily each during the Summer season. The principal hotel, "The Royal", Mr. Henry McFall's, is in a most agreeable
position, facing the sea, commanding beautiful views of the Lough and of the County Antrim, on the other side.
These conveniences and attractions, together with hot and cold baths, render this one of the most agreeable localities
for the Summer season. The vicinity is enriched with several elegant seats. R. E. Ward, D.L., J.P., part proprietor of the town,
has erected a splendid new castle, in the Elizabethan style of architecture. It is a superb building, and well worth notice.
The castle is surrounded by an extensive demesne, tastefully planted, and is contiguous to the town.
Crawfordsburn is the residence of Wm. Sharman Crawford, Esq., D.L., J.P., and the splendid seat of Lord Dufferin
is within two miles of the town.

Dispensary (under Medical Charities Act), Catherine Place - Philip C. Russell, surgeon. The committee of management meet a
the dispensary on the 3rd Monday of the month. Chairman of committee, William Sharman Crawford, D.L., J.P.; vice chairman,
Mr. John Boyd ; Hon. Sec. Mr. H. McFall ; Hon. assistant secretary, Mr. McCulloch.

Most people will already be aware of this site, if you're not, you are in for a treat. It's probably the site I use most.
Search has a wildcard feature which is excellent as spelling and transciption errors are quite common.

If searching for a Street say, Spamount Street, try just Spa* and try variables on the 'a', same with Names, there are a variety of different spellings on the Covenant, the obvious like Smith/Smyth and Stewart Stuart, regardless of how your relatives spell their names, try every variation you can think of, also if you have an address, use the street and then try a * search with the first few letters of the name and vice-versa.

and its FREE
Have Fun Mary

I have searched so many times for people until I found the wildcard search, you think they would make it a bit clearer, its so important once you do find it.

If you have streets need checked just yell

I recently ordered a death certificate application form from England and they enclosed a sheet of "USEFUL WEBSITES" thought I would share some of them with you. Perhaps if not of use, interesting instead.

might be a good idea for all members to check their personal settings, I know there's quite a long list of options but a few moments spent setting it to your liking can save time later.

Hi, Greetings from Canada:
I am looking for a few places in or around Bangor. I am trying to track down the places in which my grandmother lived around Ireland. She had to give my father up to the Barnardo organization in 1916, due to being badly burned. Very sad, indeed to lose your son for reasons such as those. Anyway, she lived in Bangor at two spots: Balloo House, and the Seaside Home of REst for Working Girls. I have some info on Balloo House, but not a lot. Does anyone have anything historical or pertinent that they know or can find out about those two places?

Is there anyone out there that is going to PRONI, that could look through the census for me? Would greatly appreciate it! This mystery is one that I intend to solve, hopefully!!! Greatest plans of mice and men!
God Bless all of you,
Judy

Hi Judy, Welcome to the Forum

I can only find one small entry re your query, in the 1910 Street Directory, it says

Bangor
Seaside Home of Rest opened 1894

it doesn't mention it or Balloo House in later years.

Was there any mention of an address for either in the info you found?

Mary

Do you have any spare time? Would you like to help?

Mary and myself have a lot of stuff that needs transcribing. We are both busily working on various files for our respective sites but have a lot more that we could use some help with.

Looking at the lists of Provinces, Counties and Towns, I would need a Town name to do a look-up as each Town does not have 1 individual alphabetical list of names, the names are in separate lists of Trades or Nobility or Clergy, etc. and each of those is alphabetical so a request for a name in a Province or County would mean hours of searching through each town.............clear as mud

UPDATE - still no paint on the walls and mum is still in hospital

Anyone waiting on a lookup, please email me and remind me, the design of this forum means I can sometimes miss a post if it is replied to by other than myself as it doesn't show in the "unanswered posts" and also I tend to miss the "posts since last visit" facility as my country broad band drops out, usually when I have just entered the forum, hence, by the time I reconnect and sign back in, I've lost the "since" part of that theory.

UPDATE - still no paint, still no life and very few look-ups done, Mum is home from hospital and I am up to my neck, I am very very sorry if you are waiting for a look-up, I have a few here that were posted within the past week but if you posted something prior to that and I haven't answered...........could you send me an email or pm and remind me please? If you could send the link to the page that you posted your query that would be very helpful thank you.

I've emailed another free forum provider to see if we can move intact to their site, bear with me people.

Hi Wendl Welcome

I Googled that, it seems a really neat prog., has lots and lots of dif. features, I like the DNA thing, seems that's getting more popular nowadays, I'm trying to get my brother to do it but I think he thinks it involves a needle *chuckles, I spose I should tell him it doesn't or maybe not

I use Legacy and love it... it is so multi-layered and full-featured that I find it "grows" with my skill level.

The other benefit is that they offer a free version that is fully functional and about 60% of the features of Deluxe version.

Well worth it in my books.

I use Ancestry.co.uk the good thing is its all set up for you and easy to use and also you can find other people researching the same tree as yours and gather info. I only started it because my maternal grandfather was from Yarmouth and it was easy. Wouldn't it be great if we had the same records here? Sigh.....heaven

My cousin has done a brilliant job in transferring our family tree onto the Ancestry.com site - it is named the Taylor Family File.

Our Cassells and Castles rels are listed in the index:

I checked the link there now and it seems the yorick.plus server is down (or gone )

I did a bit of a search and found many other links to the areas of the site showing it had photos from a lot of areas especially North Down.

The National Archives in London have a wealth of information on researching your both family and military history.

Service Records for the First World War is a good place to start for all services in The Great War

http://coleraine-battery.tripod.com/index.htm

 

Lots of images, be patient

This web site will present the social history of The Coleraine Battery from 1939 to 1945. The Coleraine Battery was a Light Anti Aircraft Unit of 200 volunteers raised to meet the threat of the German Blitzkrieg Attacks during WWII. In 1946, one year after the defeat of the Axis powers in Europe, the Battery was disbanded. The following pages will discuss the exploits of the volunteers as they fought their way through Scotland, Egypt, Libya, The Western Desert, France, Belgium, Holland, Germany and Italy. This history will also be illustrated with photographs taken during the war by the veterans.

I WOULD LIKE TO FIND OUT HER MOM'S NAME (THE *UNKNOWN CALVERT* THAT IS LISTED) AND ALSO HER CORRECT BIRTHDATE IF THAT IS POSSIBLE. I HAVE LOOKED AT A NUMBER OF WEBSITES AND HAVE HAD A COUPLE OF RESPONSES FROM OTHER POSTINGS I HAVE MADE. I DO, NOW, HAVE ALOT MORE INFORMATION THAN I HAD A YEAR AGO WHEN I FIRST STARTED THIS "QUEST"!! AND I HAVE ALSO BEEN IN CONTACT WITH SOME VERY DISTANT RELATIVES!!
ANYWAY HERE IS MY INFO SUCH AS IT IS:

As you have Elizabeths name, Date of birth and Fathers name you should be able to get the birth certificate with that missing name from either

General Register Office in Belfast http://www.groni.gov.uk/index.htm

General Register Office in Dublin http://www.groireland.ie/

or through your local LDS Family History Center http://www.familysearch.org/Eng/Library/FHC/frameset_fhc.asp
