There's a few references on the internet to a Bertie Shillington who was into the triple jump and long jump, he competed in the Commonwealth Games in the 1930s and was present in NI amateur athletics as late as 1945 (possibly as a QUB old boy), it may well be another Bertie Shillington and not Albert born 1912, but just mentioning it as pure speculation so it can be closed down if not the right one. Eg. examples here:

Oops, should have mentioned at my first post - Reply #8 - that GRONI online only makes available the following records (for Data Protection reasons):

- birth records over 100 years old (so Thomas and Catherine might have had other children);
- marriage records over 75 years old;
- death records over 50 years old.

The website is accessible here:

you're bang on with Douglas and all the others! Eileen did marry Harold Strong but they divorced and she married Richard (Dick) Shaw who was somewhat well known for his football skills.
A mystery about Thomas Shillington's past exists; do you have any idea what it could be. It's interesting that his mother's name was not on the birth certificate.
Thank you again CMcG !!

Any relationship to the Shillingtons from Portstewart

Hello! I know this was some time ago time ago but I am the grandaughter of Albert Shillington (Barbara's daughter) who posted on here.
I would love to get in touch with anyone else related. Cheers, Nicola

Shillington family history appears to start before the Doomsday book and it is recorded in   The Oxford Dictionary of the English Place Names, records “Shillington, Bedfordshire (Scythingedune 1060th, Sethlindone D, Scetlingedon 1202P, Scythingas or Scillingas) and suggests that such place name may be derived from a tribal name. It suggests further that such name like many other Old English names, may have been Scandinavianized, that is, adopted by Scandinavian invaders of Britain and changed in form to Scandinavian habits of speech, Old English "sc" was difficult to pronounce and was changed to the easier "sh". (History records that part of Britain, including Bedfordshire, was overrun by the Danes in the 900'sA.D.). The author, P.H. Reaney states that many English place name ending in "ington" trace back to Old English "ingatum" and denote willages established by tribal communities. Our best evidence, therefore, is that Shillington was originally an old Anglo-Saxon village whose name had been changed during the tenure of the Danes.” see http://www.shillington.net/english_background.htm


I became curious as to where the Belfast Shillingtons had come from and rushed at it in my usual way I tried my subscription to genes reunited https://www.genesreunited.co.uk/ which has 48 Shillington entries starting with
Thomas Shillington b1750 Syerla   Co Tyrone Ireland  treeholder Bennett who has several treeholder covers 11 other Shillington births in Syerla up to 1819 has several named ancestors.   Syerla road, is just south of Dungannon park close to Moygashel
Henry   Shillington b1775 Aghagallan Parish, Co Antrim   treeholder   Pauline


1796 Flax Growers of Ireland see
Shilerton  John  Clonfeacle  Tyrone .   Clonfeacle is a split civil parish it also has two portions on the inside the northern border of Co Armagh next
at that stage I felt Co Tyrone was worth pursuing further a quick glance to CMcG reply          lead me to the 1901 census
1 in Aughrimderg (Mountjoy, Tyrone) where David Alexanders family has a servant
Shillington   Thomas   16   Male   Servant   Church of Ireland
which diverted me totally to look at more Co Tyrone Shillington, then a quick look at familysearch.org established that Tyrone seemed to be the where they settled first in Ireland.

As I finished I had a quick look at the HEARTH MONEY ROLLS of 1669
see http://www.billmacafee.com and realized I had left out the earliest  in Ireland! ie
4978 Shillington Shillinton James Antrim Upper Doagh Grange Coggrey Cogry
4715 Shillington Skillinton Tho Antrim Upper Nilteen Grange Rathmor Rodmoore
Antrim Shillington in ancestryireland.com was further confirmed as a long lasting homestead area for Shillington I then looked up Shillington in all of Ireland using https://www.failteromhat.com/post1845.php that illustrates that of the just under 50 entries,  over 30 entries are focused in Co Armagh in Drumcree parish; 6 in Co Antrim  inc 3 Aghagallon, 1 Aghalee, 2 in Conlon st belfast ; 12 in Co Tyrone inc 8 in Clonfeacle, 1 in D, 2 in Drumglass and 2 in Desertcreat and 1 in Desertcreat

back in Belfast street directories lennonwylie 1861 Conlan St off the old lodge road is described as 20 small houses without tenants listed, in 1868 there are no Shillington in that Street which is now listed  in PRONI collection there are entries for James Shillington who has an address as Ulster Bank, and 34 Eglinton St in the intervening years and a mention of Gamble & Shillington linen merchants in LinenHall& Carrickfergus in 1865 this is expanded to John J Shillington, 8 College Square East.

finally I didn’t find a Shillington in Portstewart see http://www.lennonwylie.co.uk/PT191813.htm#Portstewart or census, is it recent perhaps
any dates to connect the family into one of the other lines
Good luck in your search for living relatives
