Francis McGartland 18 Ferndale Place, Belfast
« on: April 20, 2017, 08:15:39 PM »



Many years ago Francis McGartland left Omagh to work in Belfast and met his wife Mary Jane Dolan. Mary died at the age of 32yrs but they had three sons Leo b. 1907, Patrick b. 1910 and Catherine b. 1903. Francis remarried in St. Pauls Church to Ellen Murray of Majorca Street and they sadly Ellen died in childbirth in 1914, the child Mary Jane died one month later.


We know nothing about these McGartlands but I am sure some of the three children could have married and had children. Francis and Ellen were living in Townsend street at the time of her death.


Does any of these names ring a bell?

1951 Alton St 47 F McGartland labourer. Belfast

I think there were McGartland's in the Springfield area of Belfast to this day. But as for a connection?

1965 71 Monagh Road F McGartland Belfast

Timmo, sounds good.
He was listed in the census records as a labourer,so I assume this is him ok.  The Springfield connection is promising.
Thanks

Timmo, thanks for this also. I should really check out the grave, maybe Francis was buried there too. The childs mother died at child birth as I say so they should have been together.


I'm trying to find a marriage date on them but what I have states 1919 - after the child was born and died??
It didn't happen too often in those days.......

A Franis McGartland of 20 Bank Street married Ellen Mullan of 43 Alton Street in St. Patrick's, Belfast, on 23 October 1929, the transcription of the church marriage record I can see confirms his parents as Francis McGartland of 9 Whiterock Road and Mary J 'Doolan'.

The bride's parents were given as John Mullan and Susan Largey of 43 Alton Street.  The witnesses were Patrick J. McGartland of 12 Ferndale Street and Ellen McCamley of 8 Upton Street.

Thank you so much for your time and research skills on this. It would be nice to be able to connect with the Belfast McGartlands.
Does your initials suggest anything close to this name?

I'm afraid not, I'm not related.  It might be worth contacting the OP in the RootsChat website topic that I posted above.  Failing that, some of the more recent marriage and baptism information I posted may ring bells for people reading this topic.

This is an interesting one because the McGartlands were married to Boyd - thus Kath Boyd was sponsor on baptism of John.
