Hello Majeeka
of course thanks is needed ;D but i know what you mean about enjoying helping, it is quite satisfying when clues come together and can make a pleasant diversion from ones own research with all the brick walls that entails unless your lucky.I just find that irish research is so difficult nearly soul destroying  ::)in comparrison with say Scottish where those magic certificates/census returns just appear at the click of a button only downside being the hole in the wallet or purse that it makes.But the information they contain is just marvellous.
i will look forward to your next instalment
 ;D
kindest regards
Meg

I have found one connection to metal with the Matthews i found a John Matthews age 25 a sheet metal maker in the 1911 census living with a Joseph Still a tailor (his step father )more than likely the surname is actually Stitt ,residing in  little may street.
Meg

Hi Meg/ Mageeka

The Matthews in Little May Street is mine.  I have the following info if you can see any connection:

John Matthews: bootmaker born circa 1868

Known Children: Rachel and John Howard

John Howard Matthews married Margaret Lavery in St Joseph's Chapel in 1911.  (This is the John Matthews you mention in Little May Street - His stepfather was indeed a Joseph Stitt)  On his marriage cert John's occupation was mechanic.

John Matthews and Margaret Lavery (a walker from Nelson Street) had 13 children:

Margaret, Mary, Kathleen, Anthony, John, Archibald, Isobel, Josephine, Alice, Joseph, James, Rachel and Christine. 

Rachel is my husband's Granny - she was born in 1930 and is still alive.  Some of her siblings are also alive.  She lives in Andersonstown and is married to John O'Rawe.  Most of the siblings lived in Andersonstown, the Falls and the Markets areas.  Some also moved to Portaferry. 

I can get more info on this family from Granny, so let me know if you think there may be a link. 

Thanks

Hi Harrison, it's my husband's family - they have lived in St Agnes' Drive in Andystown for at least 25 years, probably more.  John and Rachel O'Rawe (nee Matthews).  They're both around eighty now - 5 children Gerard, Daniel, Teresa, Bridget, Margaret.
