thanks buddy, you know ,having slept on it last night now i,m in a quandry. What if i,m wrong and it was the other Robert from cambrai st who married my grandmother.?  the thing that has me wondering is the stated religion of robert alexander as C of I.
I have my grandmothers wedding to robert brown and elizabeth montgomery at college st. presbyterian church on 27/05/1911.  She was born 1889.
i,m out of my mind,but feel free to leave a message.

Based on what you say, I don't think you're wrong.

If the following marriage (which took place on 27 May 1911 between Robert Brown and Lizzie Montgomery) is the one you are referring to and which you know to be your ancestors ...

... then the combination of information in that marriage registration (ie. a groom who is a plumber called Robert Brown, with a father called Robert Brown who is a rivetter), reads across nicely to the following 1911 census return, which was only taken 2 months earlier (the same one posted at reply #7):

If it helps, note that one of the early children born to Robert Brown and Elizabeth Montgomery was Winifred b. 1913 in Jordanstown, the father's occupation was given as plumber, the father's name given as Robert Alexander Brown:

great,   winifred then sadie,robert,ernest,and betty would be the children.  Going back to 66 foundry st. that came out of Ancestry.com and was probably a slip as 56and 66 could easily get mixed up.

Wonderful job sir.
