1 Recart Terrace, Shore Road, Belfast - 1920s
« on: July 28, 2020, 10:07:59 PM »
Hello - there is a record of this address (1 Recart Terrace, Shore Road) given by my grandfather at his marriage in 1926 at St. Patrick's, Belfast. I've done quite a lot of searching online, in street directories etc and come up with nothing. Wondering if anyone familiar with the area knows of or remembers a street name anything like that? I've allowed for misspellings and sound-alike addresses but I've hit a brick wall. It's odd, because his family were living on Spamount Street around that era. Many thanks in advance for any assistance!

See 1924 ... number 7 Greencastle  (from Belfast along Shore Road) Recart House and Recart Terrace.

Hi, the 1932 Street Directory (Lennon Wylie) shows a Recort Terrace, Shore Road. I think this was a row of houses on the Shore Road. If you open this directory at Shore Road and scroll down you'll find Recort Terrace there.
Best of luck with your searches oneilln.

Thanks so much! That has to be it. [/size]I know they were living elsewhere by the 1930s but that's got to be the house.

That's good. I can remember Mr Malcolmson who lived in that row of houses when I was a child.

My granda's name was James O'Neill. By 1932 he was living on California Street on Peter's Hill where my dad was born in 1935. From the late 1800s onwards I knew the O'Neills lived everywhere from Economy Place to Greenland Street to Little George's Street to Spamount Street from at least 1918 onwards but Recort Terrace / Shore Road was a new one to me. My dad's generation is all gone now, but my there were still some family living in that general area until recently.

The only O'Neills I knew lived in Gray's Lane (off the Shore Road). It would be an amazing coincidence if that address pops up in your search.
