My Grandfather (Joseph Kerr) had a sister called Florence (Florry). The grew up in the markets area. I don't know too much about that side of my family but i have been trying to.

Hopefully there is a connection.

I am currently looking for a James Kerr.  He would be my granny's father.  Her mother was a Susan Cairns and she was given up for adoption shortly after she was born in 1934.  The only address I know of is norwood street Belfast, but I'm not sure if that was Susan's address or James'.

William, you'll find a marriage for James Kerr and Florence McBride dated 21st January 1927 on GRONI site. Both parties were 21 years of age. You should find their households in the 1911 Census but you would need the names of their respective parents. If you purchase credits with the GRONI you can obtain a full copy of the marriage which will give you the parents' names.
