There is a Murphy A (painter) listed in the Belfast Street Directory at 179 Crimea Street.
I wanted to build a fortress, a bastion of invincibility.

Hello
My name is Sean. I have been researching my dad's side of the family. The Thompson's.
This is reaching way back but my Great Grandfather (John Thompson) and Great Grandmother Ellen Thompson (nee Mitchell) lived at 99 Crimea St. from at least 1915 until Ellen died in 1926.
John was a cabinet maker and/or joinder.
In 1911 they lived on Killarney Street in the Court Ward. So, they moved to Crimea after 1911.
They had a number of children-I know for sure of-Jane, Henry, John, Elennor, Kathleen, Violet. In 1915, when John enlisted in the 16th Royal Irish Rifles, he also listed a daughter Ruth (4) and William (1.5 yrs).
Henry enlisted and fought in France with the Kings Own Royal Lancaster Regt from 1916-1919. In July of 1920, he married Margaret/Maggie Stewart at St Matthews Church in the Shankill. Henry was my Grandfather.
Just wondering if anyone remembers the Thompson's on Crimea.
Cheers
Sean

HI Billy , I know all your Family very well, your younger brother Davy ,and all your aunts and uncles, your Uncle Davy and Uncle John tinkered about and fixed motorbikes.. Andy was a few years older than me and Jeannie a year younger..I remember you and Davy were very close in age and always played together, are you still close ?is he in England? I left Belfast in 1967, so you would have been quite young then..
All the best Billy , it was good to hear from you. Keep in touch.
