Thank you CMcG.  My g.g. Uncle William James Bell (b.17/4/1877. D. 1/6/1912
married Henrietta Marno (b.4/10/1877  d. 8/10/1907)  in Belfast 20/8/1902
They had 3 children
Margaret b. 25/4/1903
Thomas James b 7/10/1904
Nelson b.9/10/1907
The children do not appear on the Irish 1911 census as a family unit. I do not subscribe currently to any site so I am limited on what I may view. There are a few suggestions
Margaret- Ispwich, Suffolk married Philip Stannard 1922
I tried looking at the 1911 census on family search for Suffolk and there is a Margaret Bell born abt. 1904 Belfast  boarding with a family in Wetheringsitt Suffolk
Nelson- died 1974 in Ipswich
The same census records Nelson Bell (Belfast) foster son residing in Mattishall, Norfolk
Thomas James hints suggested the Armagh connection.
When I checked the Irish 1911 census two enteries drew my attention.
1) Thomas James age 7 Ballygammom, Ballygomartin
2) Thomas  John age 7 nephew James Street (Shankill)
The head of that family  William John Bell I believe is the uncle of William James Bell, the children's father
