Sarah Quirey married 1870 to Thomas McMaster

Am researching the Quirey family, have found Sarah (1850ish to 1910 ish) who married Thomas McMaster (1847-1920) in Shankill Church of Ireland, Belfast.  I think this is an uncommon name, so any Quireys out there?  Give me a bell  :)

Dont know of any Quireys of Agnes Street but it is an unusual name.  I came across it when researching my family connections and wondered where the connection was? It turned out that an Andrew B Quirey is burried with my G/Father: William Lewis /his wife and my Uncle Robert. Also we have an Annie Quirey aged 3 months and a Samuel Quirey aged 2 months who both died in 1955 and are burried alongside my Uncle Samuel Lewis and his wife Annie. I assume one my uncles daughters had married into the Quirey family and that the two babies were twins who didnt make it.  Whether this has anything to do with Quireys of Agnes Street I dont know but they were all from around the Shankill area. Thought I would just throw it into the ring and see what comes out?

Wasup, I know my Sarah Quirey was married in Shankill in 1870, sounds like there may be a connection.  Let me know what you turn up with the mysterious Quireys.  Kathy  ???

Hi

There are two men (Frank and Robert) with the surname QUIREY on the WW1 Roll of Honour for Newington Presbyterian Church - the family were living at 30 in Liffey Street in 1911 and 40 Mackey Street in 1918.  Their mother was called Jane and their step-father (1911 Census) was Joseph

Frank had served with the Royal Irish Rifles and was with 1st (Garrison) Battalion, Royal Irish Fusiliers (S/N G/80) when he died on 20th September 1918, aged 21 - he is commemorated on the Taukkyan Memorial in Burma.

Robert served with Royal Garrison Artillery (S/N 42973) and survived the war.

I know that there were lots of Quireys who loved the sea, always a sailor in every family ...

And great great granddaddy William Quirey was a train driver about 1870 - 1900 ...

Anybody link up with that??

Funny, a few years ago I tried to find some relatives of my granny and the only clue I had was someone we used to visit, and I only remembered the last name of Quirey, of course I spelled it wrong (Queery)  My granny's last name was Leighton.  My father lost his life while serving with the Merchant Navy in 1942.  Other names in the family were Benson and Moreland.  I now live in Canada and this was back in the early 50's.  I am pretty sure they lived down around the Shore Road.

  My great grandmother was Bella Leighton married to James Quirey who served in the ww1 and ww2, he was in the merchant navy and died in 1952.  So we are related.
