Re my post yesterday. I have just spoken to Mum and apparently Richard Shepherd Close's brother was also involved in the Henry McNeill Company, George Alfred Close. Also her mother Dorothy Shenton, nee Close, and her sister Dorothy Glover (nee Close) were also directors. Mum also remembers visiting the Manager who she thinks was called Henry? Forbes, she only ever called him Mr. Forbes. He lived in a bungalow out of town in the countryside. I would be very interested to know if anyone has any memories of them

I came across your site whilst searching for Henry McNeill and found "McNeill, Henry, Limited, proprietors of Main Street Hotel, King's Arms Hotel, Lancashire and Yorkshire Hotel, Eagle Hotel, Garron Tower Hotel and Posting Establishment" My Great Grandfather Richard Shepherd Close was the Chairman of Directors of Henry McNeill Ltd. My mother remembers often visiting The Kings Arms in Larne and her mother Marjorie and Aunt Dorothy crocheting mats for the dressing tables in the hotel and visiting the Manager who used to live in a farm? Every year they used to receive a Turkey from the Hotel which used to arrive in a basket, complete with feathers! Was good to find some more information. I believe the Kings Arms has now been demolished. I've looked on Google Street View, is it now Dunnes Stores?

Great website. I found it hunting for information on a banner found in my wife's late Aunt's belongings.
One side of the banner is identical to the cover page on the Regimental Gazette and the other side has the Crown, Eagle, and Faugh A Ballagh on a Black, Red, Faded Green, Red, and Faded Green striped background.
If anyone has any information I'd love to hear.
I lived in the same neighborhood with the Fusiliers' families in Tripoli in 1959 to 1963. I'd just about forgotten. The memories come from the most unexpected sources.

Interested in the McQuiggs of Islandcarragh and Bushmills area along with the McAfees. (Sam McQuigg farm photo posted here).

Sarah McAfee married John McQuigg in Co. Antrim. They came over on the "New York" arriving in New York City, NY, USA in July of 1843. Sarah's father, William McAfee (or McDuffee) Sr. and his wife, Margaret "Martha" Taggart", came over on the ship, "St. Andrew", arriving in New York City, NY on June 7th, 1838. William McAfee's father was John McAfee (or McDuffee). John came from Scotland with William McQuigg as young men before 1794. John McAfee and William McAfee lived around Ballymagarry in Dunluce Parish. I descend thru William McAfee's son, Mathew McAfee. The McAfees and McQuiggs were Presbyterians and farmers. William McAfee Sr. & his family settled near Dalton, Ohio. John McQuigg & Sarah McAfee lived near Wooster, Ohio both in Wayne Co.

Hi, Re the "Lost Photo" section, chancellor Dublin, It appears to be part of the RIC Reserve Force during 1920/1. The Reserve Force is not the Black & Tans or Auxiliaries. The Reserve Force had a surgeon attached to them and the picture shows an ambulance which indicates that it may be the Reserve Force. The RF consisted of 2 x Sub Inspectors, 4 Head Constables, 200 men consisting of Sgts, Constables and Sub Constables. They travelled the length & breadth of Ireland helping local police in crowd control etc.

An excellent site.

I moved to England in '94 and now live in north Wales. I loved your site. I enjoyed the snippets you post about your life. It seems that we have similar visitors to our gardens.

But I wanted to say what a public service you perform by posting the street directories. Keep up the good work. I'm sure I'm not the only one to find these simple documents a real source of delight.

My grandparents on my mothers side (Savage) are from Belfast and I found their details on the 1911 census but not 1901. Having used your website I now know they were in Belafst in 1901 and indeed 1880 - really good news. Thank you. I just need to wait for updated census information assuming that it wasnn't destroyed.

Your website is really very helpful.
