searching for relatives of my grandfather Hugh McGilton
« on: January 28, 2014, 06:34:39 PM »
I have no information on my grandfather's family.  He married my grandmother, Ellen Prenter in the late 1920's or early 1930's and they lived (from what I can remember) in Alliance Drive.

My great grandfather was Hugh Magilton. He may be the father of your Hugh McGilton. I have seen the name spelt both ways. Address in 1911 is Henry Street. 1901 Southwell street. There is a discrepancy in the  ages of Hugh senior between these two documents but I believe that was common.

Thank you for the information on my great grandparents.  Is there any way to trace the Taylor family?  I know my great grandmother Taylor lived on Hooker Street.

Thanks Sanbrad.  Unfortunately I don't have any information on my grandfather's side of the family.  I know they lived in Belfast and my grandfather married Ellen Prenter.

Sam Barry, thank you so much for the information.  Is it possible to get more on Matilda Taylor?  I believe she was my great great grandmother.

If Matilda was 85yrs when she died, that would mean she was born around 1867 ?
I have found this marriage for 1886, which might be her's :

Record Type   Civil Marriage
Date of Marriage   24 Apr 1886
Groom Name   William TAYLOR
Bride Name   Matilda  PARKS
Church   Saint Annes Church of Ireland
Parish   Shankill
Civil District   Belfast
County   Antrim
