Belfast Genealogy / Re: James and Hugh Kirkpatrick
« Last post by CMcG on Yesterday at 11:25:38 AM »
Just another connecting / corroborating piece of information... At his marriage to Kate Drennan in 1881, James Kirkpatrick gave his address as 115 Donegall Pass.  The Belfast street directories available on the PRONI or the 'Lennon Wylie' websites show the same entry for Donegall Pass in both 1877 and 1880: 115 Kirkpatrick, David, Flesher. I like to think that this match in address further re-inforces the notion that James and David were brothers, in addition I can see only one butcher/flesher called David Kirkpatrick in the various directories, and any mention of him conveniently stops altogether after the 1884 directory (David's address in 1884 was listed as 38 Distillery Street, the usual lead time for compiling and publishing directories meant that the information could be 6 months out of date).   

Taking this analysis of Belfast street directories further, it seems to me that there really weren't that many butchers/fleshers with the surname Kirkpatrick in the latter half of the 19th C, yes, the addresses change over time but it's the same old forenames that crop up, apart from David in the 1870s/80s, it's principally 2 x James whom I suspect are the father and son in question (though it's difficult to distinguish which listing is junior and which is senior). Looking at the 1890 directory for example, the following are the only two Kirkpatrick butchers/fleshers listed in the alphabetic section:
Kirkpatrick, Jas., flesher, 102 Albertbridge rd
Kirkpatrick, James, flesher, 4 Calvin st

The second of the above James Kirkpatrick listings becomes more interesting in the context of the following death notice from the Belfast Newsletter of 28 August 1889:



Apart from the main thrust of the notice, that little 'Sen.' at the end confirms that there was indeed a son called James, yes, we could have guessed that from naming convention, but this is the first actual evidence to confirm it. The death registration for William shows a reported age of 20 - which is entirely consistent with the William born to James Kirkpatrick and Jane Burns in 1869 mentioned at reply #1 above - and the informant present at death was cited as 'James Kirkpatrick Brother', so that's a nice fit as well:
https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/images/deaths_returns/deaths_1889/06135/4752558.pdf

The death notice described William as the fourth son, so the inference to be drawn is that David, Hugh and James were the older brothers, with Joseph Cooper being the youngest brother.
