Hi all,
Does anyone have photographs of North Thomas Street about 1911-1930.
My grand parents, ( Thomas and Mary Crawley ) lived in North Thomas Street from 1911 to 1930.

Can anyone tell me anything at all about a shop which was a house-furnishers and went by the name of "Crawley and Quinn". It was at 69 York Street in the 1960s. Thanks. If anyone can recall any detail about it I'd be delighted to know.

I worked in Crawley &Quinns in the 70's

My GF Samuel Irvine b1874 -d1940 from Belfast was a Docker. He died in Purdeysburn Hospital March 1940.
I don't know anything about my GF's occupation. Are there links to Belfast Dockers or their welfare ?
I'd to know more about what he did for a living. He was from east Belfast.

My Father was born in Osborne Street east Belfast. Really would appreciate a photo of that

street, which is now gone. A photo of his Father Samuel Irvine would be more appreciated. GF was a docker, married twice.First wife Ada Coaton, died young, his second wife, my GM was Sarah McLarnon.
She died a few months after my GF. They are buried in the same grave.

Thanks for the info.,  So poor St. Joseph's is gone forever after all the hard work they did  :'( :'( :'( :'(
All the O'Preys are relations of mine.  My Great Grandfather started O'Prey Brothers (Boatmen and Raftsmen) back in the 1800's.
If you knew the O'Prey's you must know the other side of my family, the Murphy's - Bobby, Tommy and Sean from North Thomas Street
 ??? ??

Hi, my partner is related to the opreys and from England, looking some memories/photos if you have any?

Hi thanks for the response! Anne Marie O'Prey (Annie) was my partner's grandmother, she moved to England quite young I believe, around 20. Her parents were Patrick O'Prey and Mary Ann Murray from what I can gather.

Jacqui,
I know it’s a bit of a pain but there is a lot of family information that Irish Dance supplied on here. You will probably be at sixes and sevens trying to navigate your way around the Forum but you can look at ever post that Irish Dance has made.

Get back to me if things get difficult
