We must live up the road from each other when I am in Ireland.  I live in Malahide and one of my daughters lives in Ratoath. .so its a small world.  My husband would give anything for a hair cut just now and I am sure your boys would be only too happy to be back at work.  It looks like we are banned from travel to Europe due to the pandemic and to the idiot in charge. .I too am well retired

Belfast Genealogy / Re: McConvill / McConville family in Belfast - Smithfield
« Last post by Steven R on June 30, 2020, 05:56:59 PM »
Thanks Jim G
These are the children I have from Sarah and James.  Thomas had nine children in Edinburgh - the eldest son was my grandfather.

Sarah McConvill (1862-1914) m. Robert McAleese (1862-1915)
   Robert McAleese (1881-)

James McConvill (1865-) m.1891 Alice Heaney
   Mary McConvill (1892- ) m.1918 John Donaghy
      Mary Donaghy (1918-)
   James McConvill (1893-)
   Hugh McConvill (1895-) m. 1920 Isabel McCandless
   Francis McConvill (1897-)

James Sr may be the James born in Edenykennedy in 1838.    His second wife Mary was born in 1836 in County Londonderry, the daughter of farmer Manus McAtamney (1807-1870) and his wife Jane, who lived in Moneystaghan Ellis.
James notes his county of birth as Armagh and his father James McConvill is also recorded as a dealer.  His father may be the man recorded in Belfast in 1852.

1852 - James McConville, Sawyer and Dealer at 5 Store Lane,
1859 - Dealer in West Street.   
1861 - James McConvill, furniture dealer living at 6 Ferguson’s Court, off Smithfield, in the Belfast Street directory. 
1865 – Hardware Dealer, 66 Smithfield
1867 – King Street (home)
1868 – Home in 3 King Street, Business in 64 Smithfield.
1868 – James McConvill, Dealer of Watches and Jewellery.  Importer of French, German and other foreign merchandise.   64 Smithfield & 3 King Street (home).
1870  - James McConvill,  Hardware dealer/merchant at No. 81 Smithfield.  His home residence is noted as 5 Little Victoria Street.
1877 - James McConville,  Dealer in Marquis Street.
1880 – James McConvile, Nos.33, 34 and 35 and 76 Smithfield.   
1880 - Sarah McConville married Robert McAleese, a dealer, in April 1880, when Sarah, aged 17, records her address as Marquis Street.  She died in 1914.
1882 – Nos. 76 & 81 Smithfield.
1897 – Nos. 75-78 Smithfield.
1901 – 78 Smithfield

The 1901 census entry address is wrong - I have informed them.   They lived at 2 Clondara Terrace in Falls Road by 1901.

Belfast Genealogy / Smyth family Ligoneil
« Last post by Bewildered on June 30, 2020, 05:41:16 PM »
Does anyone remember the Smyth family who lived in Ligoneil in the 1920s? They had sons Johnny and Jamesy and a daughter Minnie. Minnie worked as a doffer in one of the nearby mills. The family took in children who had been boarded out from the workhouse. Minnie and Johnny moved to Yorkshire in the 1930s (I think).
