Hi Gary, I don't live in Gawsworth, that's where I traced the furthest family link to 1540.
I contacted a woman on a Genealogy site to give her some information, turned out she had all the info anyway but she was the one who had done all the tracing back to 1540.
She is a distant relative I never knew of and she also supplied me with old photos of my G/G/Great Grandfather.
A really lucky link up.

Here's one of Stephen Burrows my G/G/Great Grandfather born c1800, he lived at Ballyskeigh near Lambeg.
The last one I posted were my G/Great Grandparents James and Elizabeth (Nee Burrows) Henderson of Lambeg.

This a great thread.  Loved the photo of Bann Street.  Thanks for that Ulster Canadian.

Hendy, amazing to have photos of your great great Grandparents.  Stephen Burrows looks a cool dude.  Interesting to see the looks on the faces in the other photo.  I would imagine quite a rarity to have your photo taken in those days.  Their faces appear quite stern looking at the camera, but the father is more relaxed with his leg crossed and has his arm lovingly placed around the son.  Really lovely to see these photos.

That's his Grandson John Henderson.

I remember playing football at the bottom of Bann Street in the mid to late 60s. There was a bakery above andersons TV shop and sometimes the big side doors upstairs would open a man in white overalls would throw us out a few buns. (mostly snowballs)
Around the cornor on the main Oldpark Rd. the shops I remember were Orrs Grocers, the post office, a chippy (was it called the Victory?), John McCanns butchers, Ewings fish shop, and Andersons TV shop. There was also Smyths butchers, a wee sweet shop but cant remember the name, McGowns greengrocers, a pawn shop and a shoe shop. (Strongs mabye?) Have I left any out? :unsure:
