Thanks so much for all your hard work. This site is wonderful and I have been able to find quite a few of my ancestors ... . I'm still hitting a brick wall in regards to the Storeys of Island Street. Basil and Mary ( Robinson) Storey had quite a few children .... Sammy, Andy ,William John ( Jackie ... my Dad), Bobby, Ardie and Matt. I remember visiting them in the 50's and 60's but wonder where they have all relocated?

Think Evolina Street address for my grandparents is incorrect.
They lived in 27.
my father Henry Williamson Heald took possession of 27 in the late 1930's (I was born in 77 upper Mervue St in 1935).
Our family was there during the Blitz in 1941 under the stairs.
My mother Gertrude Eileen Heald nee Scott just died Jan 7, 2009 seven weeks short of her 99th birthday.
She was forced from 27 when they did street modifications I think in the 1980's

Most interesting and useful.
As my name is relatively unusual tracking people down is possible, and Grandfather is right there in 1911, 1910 and earlier, as are relatives in Ballycastle.
Thank you for all the work.

Dear Sir,
I am one of the great grand children of late Mr.Thomas Joseph Mackey who settled in Tavoy, Burma. According the family information carried from fathers to children, we know that our great grand father used to serve his militry service in Bore War (Africa). He married to a Tavoy Lady named Daw Aye and he died in 1931 in Tavoy, Burma.
I would be very glad to have his information but I don't know where and how I could find.

Thanks to you Len, I have finally found a long lost relative in Antrim. Your website "Down Memory Lane" has made this all possible. I also found my great grandparents wedding details and their children.
The Millar and Fleming families of Antrim are no longer "lost".
Looking forward to any more relatives to make contact.
A great site and I regularly visit to see what else is new.

Regards Ducie

The site is a great resource. I'm trying to access listings for Townsend Street from the period 1913 to 1950 any of the intervening years. I'm interested in specifically identifying the exact location of the Soho Foundry which is variously listed from 1843 to 1880.

My mother-in-law was Eileen Constance Chermside (she died this January aged 88 bless her). Unfortunately she was abandoned as a baby and was placed in foster care.

I have traced her father Thomas Arthur Fitzgerald Chermside born in Holywood 4-Feb-1869, whose father was William Dawson Chermside born Aug 1824 Belfast. His father was Thomas Martin Chermside born Aug 1792 who married Mary Dawson born 23 Jan 1799 at Shankill St Annes, Belfast. He was the co-founder of Drumaness flax spinning mill with William Davidson built 1850.

I'm struggling to find out more due to being an disabled (polio 56 years ago) and the paucity of N. Irish data.

That is why this site is so helpful - thankyou Lennon Wyle!
If anyone can add anything to this history please email me.
