John Erskine
« on: January 03, 2021, 05:37:34 AM »
Hi. I am looking for info on John Erskine that was a hatter in Belfast in the late 1800ís.  Does anyone have any knowledge of John or his family?  He built Hatfield House in Glengormley

Any help would be appreciated

Thank you Elwyn.  Your links are correct.  The James Erskine is my great grandfather.  I have been researching for info on John to see if he married and had a family, so far no luck.  I am also hoping to find info on their parents William b. 1820 d. 1800 and Agnes
Thank you for the reply!

John is described as a bachelor on both his death certificate and on the 1901 census, so unless thatís incorrect, he didnít marry.

His mother Agnes died in 1913:

Father John looks to have died in 1900:

All I can say is wow!!  The articles are great to read, thank you so much for taking the time to find and post them!  It is often difficult to find these as I live in Canada.John did eventually build his Hatfield House in Glengormley.  Sadly it has been demolished and the Public Library now sits in its place. :)
