    1. [BELFAST] Miss LEWIS married Mr BELL in Belfast 1786 - help please
    2. Hello - I am a new subscriber and hoping that someone may be able to assist me. I am looking for information regarding a Miss LEWIS who married in Belfast in June or July of 1786. Her father was James LEWIS and he was deceased when she married a Mr Bell who was attached to the 5th Regiment of Foot. Sadly I do not know her first name, her age, or any details about her birth. If anyone is able to assist with any information about this marriage, about Miss Lewis or her family, or about her new husband Mr Bell, I would be most grateful. Thanks, Beth Auckland, NZ

    3. Hi Heather Thanks for your interest, I'm also interested as well, whenever I see the name Spence in relation to Northern Ireland. I checked on the Irish civil records website https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie and found 4 Martha Spence records between 1894 and 1898 but none with a fathers name of Henry. Of course, Martha may be a nickname or a middle name. I'm glad your son loved Australia. Have you had your DNA tested? That may be a help Kind regards Mike On Sun, 12 Aug 2018 at 05:33, Heather chambers <[email protected]> wrote: > Good afternoon Mike, > > This is indeed a long shot but anytime I see Spence from Ireland it peaks > my curiosity. > > My grandmother, was Martha Spence(b. 1896 ?) from Ireland. > > She married by grandfather, Alexander Angus (b. 1894) in Glasgow in 1917 > > As the family story goes: > > Both her parents were dead in an auto accident (!) so she moved to Glasgow > to live with an aunt. > > Parents names: Henry Spence and Martha ? > > Thank you in advance, > > Heather in Montreal. > > PS.

    2. Heather chambers
    3. Good afternoon Mike, This is indeed a long shot but anytime I see Spence from Ireland it peaks my curiosity. My grandmother, was Martha Spence(b. 1896 ?) from Ireland. She married by grandfather, Alexander Angus (b. 1894) in Glasgow in 1917 As the family story goes: Both her parents were dead in an auto accident (!) so she moved to Glasgow to live with an aunt. Parents names: Henry Spence and Martha ? Thank you in advance, Heather in Montreal. PS. Just picked up our son from the airport this morning after a month in Australia., Melbourne, Brisbane, Cairns and Whitsunday Islands. He loved it all - thinking about a return trip next year.

    1. [BELFAST] Belfast - Hamilton and Mateer/Mc Tier Families
    2. Jill Forster
    3. Hello Listers My Hamilton family was in Belfast from at least 1826. John Hamilton and his wife Mary Mateer/McTeer/McTier. had children there from at least 1826 to 1842 (John, Mary, Alexander, RoseAnn, Eliza, Alexander, William, David, Mary, Annabella). Mary Mateer was baptised in St Anne's Shankill on the 7th September, 1796 the daughter of John McTier and Eliza. The first two children were baptised at St Annes but the remainder were baptised at Fisherwick Presbyterian Church in Belfast. My gr gr grandfather William born 1836 apparently had his basic school education in Ireland and appears in 1851 in Edinburgh where he trained as a schoolteacher, later becoming the headmaster of a C of E school in Hove Sussex and later in Sth London. He is not in the 1851 census of Scotland so probably came directly there from Ireland. A local researcher could not find a marriage for John and Mary but said the original Belfast records on film were of such poor quality that they were mostly illegible. John snr was a Shopkeeper according to his son William's marriage certificate in England. Despite calling up a lot of marriage records for the children other than William, I have no definite sightings in Belfast of any of my Hamiltons or Mateer/Mc Teer/McTier. None of the Belfast death/burial records turn up any definite links. Anyone searching for Hamiltons or Mateer/McTier? Regards Jill Forster Sydney Australia
