The struggle here is going to be because the events are relatively too modern to gain any information online.

However, a possibility is a 23 year old Robert Arbuthnot from Penrith Street who married Elizabeth Anderson (same age) from Wall Street on 10 March 1928 in St. Anne's Church of Ireland Belfast.

The groom's father was called William John Arbuthnot, the bride's father was called John Anderson.

There was a Robert Arbuthnot born 26 July 1904 with mother's maiden name Dickson, this would tie in to parents William John Arbuthnot and Maria Dickson who married in St. Anne's Church of Ireland Belfast on 2 March 1900.

But this is pretty flimsy stuff, does any of it ring a bell?

When Elizabeth Anderson married Robert Arbuthnot in 1928, she said she was 23, her given address was 49 Wall Street, father John Anderson was described as a labourer.  The 1924 Belfast street directory, courtesy of the Lennon Wylie website, corroborates that latter fact:

Wall Street
UPPER LIBRARY STREET TO DENMARK STREET

49 Anderson, J., labourer


The nearest available street directories on that website either side of 1924 (1918 and 1932) show a different occupier.  Given that information, it would be tempting for the uninitiated to think that this could be Elizabeth in 1911:

http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1911/Antrim/Court/Broadbent_Street/135053/

However the reality is that there are loads of Elizabeth Andersons for that era, it isn't known if the 1928 age of 23 for Elizabeth is accurate,  or if labourer father John even hailed from Ireland, it's a guess.

Do you have any other possible leads for Elizabeth's parents?

My grandfather was Matthew Anderson born April 4 1968 to David Anderson and Mary Jane Beattie,as far as I know they had 5 sons John,Robert matthew(my father)David and James.i believe my grandfather was married twice but I don’t have any information who,where or when.i do know that Elisha Anderson of Vulcan street was my fathers uncle.my grandmother (Matthews wife) was Sarah Jane lee ( daughter or William lee and Mary Curran)29 fourth street in the shank I’ll area,I have no knowledge of them ever having a daughter,so the Sarah Jane mentioned in Aileach41 posts not their daughter if you check the 1911 census she is not mentioned as living in 6 Bangor st although William I believe was my uncle john middle name.   Matthew Anderson b.july 1907 ( my father) son of Matthew b.04/11/1868 son of David b1843 son of Matthew (date not known) I hope this helps

Hi teehall, You must be a descendant of William Anderson & Agnes Stewart?  I would be interested in knowing your descent from William and Agnes. I have  much more information  on the Andersons and families descended from them.
