Taken from a speech made to mark the couple’s golden wedding anniversary in 1997, the Queen said: “He (Philip) has, quite simply, been my strength and stay all these years, and I, and his whole family, and this and many other countries, owe him a debt greater than he would ever claim, or we shall ever know.”

Belfast Genealogy / Re: Clare Family

Hi Jim thank you so much for replying to my post regarding the CLARE FAMILY.  I am indeed currently working on my family tree.

WILLIAM CLARE B.1829 married MARY MAGOWAN B.1835 on the 16/8/1855 in Groomsport Presbyterian Church.  My G.G.GRANDPARENTS.
JAMES CLARE B.18/12/1866 married CAROLINE CAIRNS B.27/6/1868 in Agnes St Church on 30/3/1889. G. GRANDPARENTS.
THOMAS CLARE B.25/4/1903 married JULIA ANNA RICHARDSON B.2/10/1902 in Crescent Church on 9/9/1922. Address  62 SPRUCE STREET My grandparents.
CAROLINE CLARE B.23/12/1927 married DAVID HENRY LAWDER B.17/4/1916 in Mohill Leitrim ROI  in St Mary's Magdalene Church Donegall Pass on 29/3/1952. My parents.
My father was in the Inniskilling Fusiliers WW2 and fought in Burma where he was shot and seriously injured with a Samurai sword.  Myself and my 3 brothers knew very little about his army life as he never spoke about it.  I have sent to the MOD in Kew for his service records which apparently take up to to 6 to 9 months to arrive.
I have been able to research most of the older CLARE family through Irish Genealogy although I couldn't find some DOB's and DOD's. I am also unsure if some of the CLARE'S I have found are correct.
MATILDA CLARE DOD 20/8/1893 age 30
ELIZABETH DOD 23/11/1885 age 40
SOPHIA DOB? married JAMES MCKAY
17/7/1876 age 19.Agnes St Church.
JULIA DIED 1869 age 40
ANNE JANE CLARE B.1872 Died 1908 age 36
MICHAEL CLARE DOB? 13 Little Victoria St married ROSE ANNA PARKES children
MICHAEL DENIS B.24/8/1881
JOSEPH THOMAS B.24/8/1881
MARY ELIZABETH B 25/6/1883
DENIS B.18/8/1885
DENNIS CLARE Birth YR 1886 Died 1916 Age 30
DOD 5/7/1916 SOMME
SON OF DENNIS AND ANNIE CLARE HUSBAND OF ANNIE CLARE 5 LAWTON ST ANCOATS MANCHESTER
1911 CENSUS - Address 18 CANTERBURY ST CROMAC
EDWARD ARTHUR CLARE age 28 B.1/4/1883
ALICE CLARE (WIDOW) age 61 his mother
FATHER'S NAME DAVID THOMAS CLARE
BORN LIVERPOOL
FLORENCE CLARE 16 ELAINE ST
BIRTH OF MARY CLARE 5/7/1901 BELFAST WORKHOUSE
MATTHEW JOHN CLARE WILTON ST
I can't find any marriage details for GEORGE CLARE B.1/9/1889 BRAMLEY YORKSHIRE and married CATHERINE DOERING B.25/2/1894 LONG ISLAND NEW YORK
They sailed to New York on THE ADRIATIC SHIP  with 2 of their 10 children.
I seem to have hit a brick wall with the CLARE'S and at present turning my attention to my Grannies side the RICHARDSON FAMILY. However this is proving more difficult as her father JOHN RICHARDSON BY1863 in England. He married ELLEN HOBSON born Co Armagh on 24/8/1888 at St John's Church.  Their address 11 Verner St on the 1911 Census.
I would very much like to thank you for your offer of help and appreciate any assistance you can provide to further my research.
Many thanks
JULIANA

Also, Roy and Locomotive: I've another picture saved which was put on here at one time by another poster, for a lot of us, realising that photo's on here wouldn't last forever, saved them all while we were able. Anyway, it shows a stone bridge you could walk underneath down at Greencastle (at Whitehouse Park?) and on the photo there is a group of young men. Some of them may even be known to both of you. I can send it too if you are interested. Maybe you already have it though.  :hi:

Roy, I so much enjoyed reading your post. It did my heart good. I delighted in the detail you remembered and the feelings you conjured up again in yourself  when you looked into the matter further. I'm not keen on adult life either and long ago even reverted to reading children's books about kids messing around on islands and finding hidden caves etc.

But anyway, the offer's here of me emailing you that picture of my family members at the side of some coastal wreckage, so get in touch if you want to see it. The sight of this particular wreckage might even be something which gives you further inspiration as it could restore to your memory some aspect of the Greencastle wreckage that you can follow up. I wonder if there were ever any "incidents" at that wreckage which might have been newsworthy? Maybe some kid getting into difficulty or someone complaining that it was dangerous? For if so you might be able to look into newspaper archives (a subscription for a few months for all British newspapers going back into the 1800s can be bought cheaply enough). If such an article exists, there might be an image. I'm wondering if there was ever some wee local Whiteabbey newspaper? Sorry, I'm sure there is, but I can't remember what it might be called. Well, looking at the archives of this paper might turn something up. Or perhaps a letter sent in right now requesting an image of it and any memories its readership might have.

 In the meantime I will prompt my brother-in-law to ask more people. He's already put the word ut, so keep your fingers crossed.

Locomotive, if you are reading this, it goes the same for you. P.M. me if you like and I can email you the image of the wreckage taken in the 1930s somehwere on Belfast Lough. I can date this picture precisely to the early thirties as my mother is about 3 years old in it.

Regards to the both of you.

JimG

I'm curious now after re visiting the marriage of Mary and John, with your expertise, do you think you could decipher the name of the witness?

I'm thinking it says Anne or Jane Willis.  Could you kindly run your eye over it, if you have time?

Also, for a bit of background - I literally started out doing my family history research with zero information back in 2006. I've ran in circles most of the time as I didn't know where to look for the information other than get certificates from city hall. Then someone told me about roots ireland and emerald ancestors.  Only last year during lockdown did I hear about this valuable website.
