Hi,
My name is Peter Smith now living in Australia.
Charlie Dobbin and Margaret Quinn were my grandparents and my mother was Bernie Dobbin.
I lived in 2 Stewart St in the Market with my grandparents and aunts and uncles until I was about 13 yrs old.
Let me know if I can assist you further
 
Peter

 :) I suppose you guys are aware that the surname Dobbin was originally D'Aubin, and that the Dobbins (some in my family tree also) were Huguenots who came from France to flee persecution and found a warm welcome in Ulster.  Dobbins Hotel in Carrickfergus is a notable landmark.  The Huguenots left their mark on Belfast in a great way, eg the de Crommelin family (Crumlin Rd).

Hello everyone,

I realise this is an old topic, but I'm hopeful of getting an answer to my question here. I am looking for information about a Mary McGennity (widow of John McGennity) who died at 2 Stewart Street on December 24th 1940. The informant is listed as S. Dobbin - grandson. A copy of her death certificate was found in my family but we are struggling to figure out where she fits in. A common connection is the surname Quinn mentioned here - my great grandmother was Catherine Rose Quinn (1880 - 1940) who married a John Murray in 1903 in Ballymacarret.

Any info appreciated.

Joe.
