The William in Woodlee Street was the son of Matthew Anderson and Catherine O'Rourke!

Civil Marriage
Date of Marriage   1 Dec 1892
Groom Name   Matthew ANDERSON
Bride Name   Catherine  OROURKE
Church   Saint Marks Dundela Church of Ireland
Parish   Holywood
Civil District   Belfast
County   Down
ANDERSON   MATTHEW   1892   DAVID   Antrim

And was Sarah Jane 15 when she was married in 1911? She was 5 in 1901

U/1893/59/1007/10/60   William   Anderson   29th May 1893   Male   O'Rorke   Belfast(pre-1973 Q4)
U/1896/59/1007/12/54   Mathew   Anderson   16th October 1896   Male   O'Rorke   Belfast(pre-1973 Q4)

There is no Marriage c1901 of Matthew Anderson and Sarah Jane.
Was there a 2nd William Anderson?
The William in 1901 was 7
The William in 1911 was 9

I'm confused!

Valkerr, I'm confused as well. I have found that census returns are not always accurate. The age thing had me pondering as well. It would also seem that Matthew may have been married twice or my sources are wrong. I will have to re-valuate what I have. Thank you so much for your information. Again, much more than I expected.

Found more that I didn't get a chance to post earlier. The census information doesn't seem very accurate but I found this family which I think might be them- in which case the parents seem to have married in 1918.

Matthew Anderson/Sarah Jane Lee 4 Jan.1918 Belfast
Father Anderson- mother Lee
Matthew Anderson born 2 Apr.1902 Belfast district (likely the child deceased by 1911)
William Anderson born 17 Aug.1903 Belfast district
Robert Anderson born 2 May 1905 Belfast district
Matthew Anderson born 13 July 1907 Belfast district
David Anderson born 25 Feb.1910 Belfast district

Certificates would be needed to confirm all this.

Added- the son William Anderson in 1911 census is age 7 so wouldn't be listed in 1901

Hi Chicago, you could maybe help me sort this out. I'll get back to you shortly. Lakemba and Valkeer, according to my information and the 1911 census, Matthew Anderson of Bangor St married Sarah Jane Unknown 10 years before, which would be in 1901. This Sarah Jane was the mother of Sarah Jane who married James Parker. Do I have two different Matthew Andersons here? One who married Catherine O'Rourke? If so, how does Sarah Jane of Westmoreland St who was in the same age range as Matthew Anderson of Castlereagh Pde, and was buried with him, fit in here? This is a case for the FBI. :(

Hi Chicago. Would you possibly know the name of the mother of Sarah Anderson who married James Parker? It may make things much clearer. Matthew Anderson was my mother's uncle and she told me that her father Elisha Anderson (who was a brother of Matthew) married Agnes Rice, a Catholic, and they lived in Vulcan St, Shortt Strand. Elisha had been in the British Army for a short time ( he was in the transport core and was kicked by a mule and invalided out), and Elisha living in a republican area at that time feared for his safety went to stay with Sarah Jane and James Parker until things cooled down. Any help would be gratefuly appreciated. Thank You

There seems to be some confusion here?
1901 census shows Elicia Anderson (changed to age 15 on original but shown as 25 on transcription)but father's name is David not Matthew.

Here's Elish and family in 1911-

Lakemba In 1901 Elisha was 15. He and Matthew were sons of David. What is the source of the following information you sent me and is there no address?

Hi Aileach41.  I am Chicago's sister so I am also a gt granddaughter of James and Sarah Jane.  Unfortunately we have been unable to trace Sarah Jane prior to her marriage in 1911 so being able to find her now in the 1901 census has been a bonus - thank you for that information.  On her marriage certificate it states that her father was dead but i have been unable to verify that.  Where you aware that Elisha Anderson was a twin?  Mathew would have been 18 when Elisha and his brother were born.

Hi Zinfandel, nice to hear from you. According to my records Matthew Anderson b.April 11, 1868 at Ballyaltikilligan, Comber, Co. Down, died May 10, 1948 at 9 Castlereagh Parade and was buried in Dundonald Cemetery grave no. B5 319. A Sarah Jane Anderson aged 83, of 57 Westmoreland St. is buried with him, along with whom I assume are grandchildren. Have you any idea how this Sarah Jane fits in? Yes, Matthew was 18 when Elisha was born and Elisha was a twin, but I cant find any record of him; I have been given different names for him so I'm in the dark. Many twins in the Anderson family, my mother was an only surviving triplet. Do you know the name of the mother of Sarah Jane  who married James Parker?[/font]
