Hello Jim,

When were the Beatty/Beattie, Gilmore, Allen, Davis and Gibb families living around Bangor and Belfast?

Hi Christopher
Thank you for responding. I'm trying to trace the family of my grandfather Jim Beattie/Beatty who was born at Cottown Aug 31 1883 to Hugh and Agnes (Gilmore) Beatty. Hugh was born 20 March 1860 in Herdstown to Charles & Christian (Davis) Beatty. Agnes Gilmore was the daughter of Hugh Gilmore and Agnes Gibb of Herstown and was born 7 February 1855.
I know that my grandfather Jim married my grandmother Maggie Allen on 24 September 1906 at Shore Street Church, Donaghadee and their children were all baptised at the Ballygrainey Presbyterian Church. His parents Hugh  and Agnes were married 10 April 1882 Ballycopeland Presbyterian Church. I know Hugh had one brother Charles but this is all I know of his siblings. I also know from the 1901 census that Hugh and Agnes were living at Hugh and Agnes were living at 11 Ballyfotherly, North Down, Ireland. I believe that Agnes died before the marriage of their daughter Eleanor (Nellie) in 1916 but have no proof. I have no more info on the Gilmore family other than a John and Annie Gilmore were witnesses at Agnes and Hugh's marriage and absolutely nothing on the family of Agnes Gibb. Unfortunately all of my family that might of had any answers here in Canada are now all gone and unfortunately I never thought to ask when they were still alive.
I really appreciate any and all assistance.
all the best
Jim

Hello Jim & Jake:
Just yesterday I discovered that one of our Mackey ancestors, Edith Mackey, married James Beattie on Aug. 6, 1918 in Shankill, Belfast, Antrim. 

This may be of no use to you, but if you have any info that would be helpful to us we would greatly appreciate it!!   :)

Deb
Looking for Mackey, Smyth, Ferris, Flanagan, Newell, Coburn.

Harrison, I was hoping to send you a personal message so as not to restart this thread, but I was unable to.   My great-grandparents were also Hugh Beattie and Mary McShane.  Their son, Patrick, was my great-grandfather.  Patrick's daughter, Alice, was my grandmother.  I was hoping to ask you some questions as to that line, if at all possible.   I am going to Belfast in June to attend a week-long session at the Ulster Historical Society mainly to gain a better perspective on research but also to fill in a number of holes on my family tree.  My Dad, at 88, is very curious about his ancestry (my fault, I'm afraid) and I'm hoping to be able to get BOTH of us answers.    Thank you.   Also, just to note, we've been spelling the name as Beattie.  Now I'm even more confused...

Harrison  remains active on this website today. he has done much research see search engine top rh corner icon type in  mary mcShane look for  a Harrison reply Re: Tracing the Beatties through Donnelly's and Enniskillen McGuinness's« Reply #21 .    : November 18, 2013, 06:06:36 PM
in his contribution he had a fuller name list of Hugh and Marys children
eg 13 Dec 1856 Hugh
of special interest to you is he also had
Patrick Beattie [m  1/1/1899 St.Peter,s Patrick--]Catherine Matthews
 [children]
23 March 1900 Mary-------death 7 Nov 1979
8 August 1903 Thomas Leo ---death 1931
1 Jan 1905 Patrick
                  Hugh
26 Dec 1907 Catherine---death 20 Dec 1978
15 Nov 1909 Agnes ---death 22 Aug 1935
4 April 1911 Alice --- death 18 June 2002
30 July 1914 Josephine---death 10 July 1993
in his original message his bottom line after listing Hugh and Mary children was
“ALL BAPTISED ST.PATRICK'S RC DONEGAL STREET,BELFAST” that could save you hours of work


how did you know about Hughs siblings?


James Beattie/Beatty could be 153-159 Old Lodge road in 1858-9 hugh
possible address for Hugh in 1877 2 Annie Court a painter in street directory


AbbyGG quoting yourself “Harrison, I was hoping to send you a personal message so as not to restart this thread, but I was unable to.”      you will be able to contact him by private message as soon as you have sent 3 messages.in total is the way it works, replying to my message is no 2  and add a new one about bit more for instance asking Harrison about St Patricks  baptism records and where are they kept no 3 and then do you PM to him


 Good luck and have fun at the UH Foundation or Society which ever it is

Thanks, Jim!  And you are correct, it's the Ulster Historical Foundation, not Society.   I will take your advice below about posting another message.   I am so looking forward to this trip.
