I am researching my great grand mother Agnes Johnston, born 20/05/1881 at 29 Beech Street, Belfast.[size=78%]  [/size]


[size=78%]Her birth registration identifies her father has Henry Johnston of 29 Beech Street with the occupation of Cabinet Maker.  Her mother is recorded has Eliza Johnston formally TOMILNSON (birth index reads TOMLINSON)[/size]
[size=78%]I have been unable to trace a marriage record for Henry Johnston to Eliza TOMILNSON (or TOMLINSON).[/size]
[size=78%]

I have found a birth registration for Frances Banks JOHNSTON, born 11/08/1876 at 29 Beech Street, Belfast.  Her father is recorded has Henry Johnston of 29 Beech Street with the occupation of Cabinet Maker. her mother is recorded has Eliza Tumbelty.    Frances married in 1899 and a witness to the marriage was Agnes Johnston.


I have also located a marriage record for Henry Johnston (occupation Cabinet Maker) to Eliza Tumilty on 17/04/1865 in Belfast[/size]




I believe Agnes and Frances to be sisters ( same father's name, same father occupation, born at same address, Agnes a witness at the marriage of Frances, same first name of mother).


I can understand the spelling variation of TUMBELTY and TUMILTY but where does the name TOMILNSON (or TOMLINSON) fit in all this ?


Can someone shed some light please.

Son James Banks Johnston b. 1884 went under Tomlinson as well:

All the others went under a variant of Tumelty:
- Robert Johnston b. 1866 under Tumbelty:

- John Johnston b. 1868 under Tumbilty:

- Jane Johnston b. 1872 under Tumelty:

- Joseph Johnston b. 1886 under Tumilty:

- Thomas Johnston b. 1888 under Tumilty:
https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/images/birth_returns/births_1888/02508/1929938.pdf

My guess is that it was just an a.k.a., it may not even have a wider etymological significance, such looseness over names was par for the course in some families.

If there are any images posted above that are important to you, take your own copy - I cannot guarantee they will appear indefinitely.

Hi, i know this post is a couple of years old but Iíve just come across it. My great great grandmother is Frances Johnston who married John Farrell, and was indeed Angesí sister. My Nan (who has just passed) has told me a little about her Nans siblings but not a lot. I was hoping we could share our family tree, and if you have any information about the Johnston/Tumiltu/Tumbelty line?
