Here are a couple more sites for you to search re "Terrington's"
www.findagrave.com  and www.billiongraves.com
There are several Terrington's on both sites, the second one has an Isabella Terrington,buried in Clandeboye Cemetery,Bangor,Co.Down. together with a photograph of the headstone.
You never know you might just find some distant relatives.

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

looking  [ for a friend ] for any info on Henry Watts , born circa 1811 and possibly migrated to Canada. Maybe because of the potato famine
                More than likely was an Ulster man
                                                     regards and thanks   johnmc

I've been researching family history for over one year! My Great Grandparents lived 10 Garnet Street in 1887 approx.  their name McAllister (but there's many variations of the spelling)! Can anyone help?

I'm sure someone could help but would need a bit more information than just a last name and address.  Could you post as much information that could point us in the right direction?

new FREE genealogy website irishgenealogy.ie gives lots of detail and photographs of actual registry details [including ni] - well worth a look - only up to c1920's at this stage but i believe they are working to expand as time goes on. Enjoy!!

     John McIlvenny and Maria Cunningham’s marriage was registered in Belfast on 12.4.1914. You can view the original certificate on-line on the GRONI website, using the “search registrations” option:
 
https://geni.nidirect.gov.uk
 
You will need to open an account and buy some credits. It costs £2.50 (sterling) to a view a certificate.
 
With the addresses, fathers’ names and other information on the certificate you should be able to locate the 2 families in the 1911 and 1901 censuses.
 
For John & Maria’s children, you would need to contact GRONI. (Births under 100 years are not on-line). You can go to their search room in Belfast in person or get them to look them up for you. (There may be a fee for that).
