I love this site...I found it quite accidentally while googling. I am trying to research my Irish roots. I have a Thomas Hyde married Douglas (female) Burrows in 1871 in Shankill.
I look forward to spending some time going through the site properly. smile

Very interesting..among my grandmothers effects was a cutting announcing the death of colonel John Haughton on the N W frontier.

Her mother was married to a William Haughton, chandler of Birkenhead. Have never been able to establish a link but assume there must have been one.

Only info on William that born in Ireland father a farmer.

Any leads would be welcome.

Excellent site. Fascinating looking up old family members in old streets. The link to the Ireland 1911 census is also very useful and provides lots of interesting anomalies in what we thought we knew.

Dear Mary, Could you please tell me how to get the O,NEILL and other Os,on the COMMONWEALTH WAR GRAVES RECORDS SEARCH .I have been unable to access the name.Since I started my family genealogy,I have found your site and street directories most rewarding.As I have worked in the BELFAST POST OFFICE from 1960 [now retired]I knew where the streets were,but it was great after using your site ,I discovered my ancestors were from sailortown and Union /Kent Streets and it was later on that they moved to the Fall,s/Springfield/Grosvenor areas.I have found further names in my research and it,s A BIG THANK YOU,TO YOU AND YOUR GREAT SITE. I have also seen you giving help to others on BELFAST FORUM.
Again MANY THANKS MARY.

Stumbled across your site looking for info on my great grandfather. My grandfather, Powell Cheveral Foxall emmigrated to Australia around 1845-47. I have traced a Powell Foxall who was the owner of Killevy Castle, Co. Armagh, but have so far yet been unable to form any link between the two. I found your site most interesting, and hopefully will one day unlock the links of my early family.

Hi wink

What a wonderful research site, it has been a great asset in finding some members of our family.

I have one query though would you have any idea where I could find records on those who worked at Hillsborough Castle in the late 1800s. My great Grandfather and great Grandmother supposedly worked there as a stable hand and a cook. Any information at all would be great.

Thanks again for all your hard work in such an informative site.

Hello

Good site !
Don't suppose you have come across ....
Robert & Margaret Garvey ( both born around 1860 ) in 1911 census they are listed at 9 Malvern street .

But in your 1910 list they are not there , do you know was the house rented to them or others ?

Cheers
Simon

Or if there is anyone visiting the site who would like to help me I would be awfully grateful.

Hi
I just wanted to say a big thanks for all your hard work and dedication in creating this wonderful website. I am researching the Kerr surname and it has been very helpful, especially as all the 1800-1900 census have been destroyed. I am not having much luck with the Mullan family from Johnston's Court, but I will continue plowing on.
Thanks. smile

Mary,it was great to see you on TV last night ! You will be inundated now. Haven't had any joy finding my late mothers half sister but I'll keep trying. My GG Grandfather John Connor is listed in the 1880 directory at 200 Argyll Street. My late mother said he was involved in the surveying of the Antrim Coast road. We didn't pay much heed at the time but I have since discovered that one of his children was born in Cushendall in 1865. The parents names are John Connor and Eleanor Brosnan and the daughter was named Ellen. Have you any idea where I could find out more about him . I know he originally came from Portumna in Co Galway,but I am intrigued as to how he got a job surveying in the Antrim area. Thank you so much for all the hard work you do it is much appreciated.
