Glenfield Place and Lonsdale Street
« on: March 31, 2012, 09:46:48 AM »
Hello
 
Does anyone know where Glenfield Place and Lonsdale Street were situated in 1870s Belfast?  I'm trying to locate exactly where in Belfast my ancestor lived at that time.
 
Thank you
Carol

The 1877 street directory on the Lennon Wylie website describes Lonsdale Street as "Crumlin Road to Old Lodge Road".
 
The same street directory shows Glenfield Place being off the Ormeau Road:

Interestingly, a Francis Glenfield is listed as a resident, but that's one for another day.

Hello Carol, here's a useful tool, Lonsdale is off Old Lodge Road & Crumlin Road.  Its 1861 I know, but it hadn't moved before 1870's as far as I know  ;)   Glenfield Place is south off Donefall Pass but, doesn't show on this map.

Hello CMcG and 17124
 
Many thanks for your replies to my query about Lonsdale and Glenfield street locations, which have helped me trace where they are.  The 1861 map proved useful in also pinpointing the church where the ancestor I am researching, my great grandmother, married in 1876, which was Mary Magdalene Church on Donegall Pass.  The 1861 map shows an Asylum Church on this road and I am presuming this would be the same church in 1876 but with a different name.
 
Thanks again
Carol

Hello CMcG
 
Thanks for providing the link to the Mary Magdalene Church.  I have read the interesting information about it - it's a lovely church with a beautiful interior and stained glass windows. Hoping to visit it when next in Belfast.  Would you know if the Church is open to the public during the week?

I don't Carol69, but there's an enquiry page in the following link to their website which will enable you to email them...

Glenfield Place is part of Ormeau Road, it runs from 121 Ormeau Road as far as University Street. The details are in the Belfast Street Directories on the Lennon Wylie website, look up ‘Ormeau Road’
