Thanks everyone!  Chewing it all over.  Nothing sounds right at this point.  Will return if I come up with anything.

Linda:. I should also have mentioned that there was an Edward Kelso in Craigarogan on 1833 Tithes, near Kilgreel.

Awesome info Linda!  Muckamore seems most likely area to concentrate for now.

Just for clarification, I place Kilgreel between Templepatrick and Mallusk, while Muckamore seems to be a suburban area of Antrim Town. Maybe you meant Kilgreel is Mallusk not Muckamore?

Not giving up entirely on the Kilgreel Robert Kelso 1833 Tithes, though.  Would you feel comfortable providing contact info on the Templepatrick researcher you mentioned? No worries either way.

Thanks again!

Hope you don't mind me sticking my nose in, but I am also researching Kelso family. You mentioned Kilgreel as well, which interested me as there is a ROBERT KELSO there in 1833 on the tithe records.

A Robert Kelso was listed as father, occupation gentleman, on 1852 Glenarm Presbyterian marriage record of EDWARD KELSO 26yo to Matilda McCombe.  She was from Larne so I am assuming this was her church.  He (Edward) is seen on Main Street, Antrim Town, in the same year (street directory) as a watch and clock maker.

This couple had at least one child, JOHN KIRK Kelso, who later emigrated to Australia.

Edward died 1859 in Donaghadee, Down. This confused me at first, as to why he left Antrim, but on further thought I became convinced he went to the seaside town because he knew he was ill, perhaps on the recommendations of his physician FIL and BIL. No proof of that, but I felt strongly enough about it that I returned to Antrim records when searching for his roots.

In his 1857 will, Edward leaves shares to both the Committee of the Second Presbyterian Congregation of Antrim and the Primitive Weslyan Methodist Congregation of Antrim.  The will also reveals the name of his half-sister HESSY or ESTHER Sheals. No other siblings named.

Hessy had three children (John Charles, Eliza, and Anne) baptized St Patrick's RC Belfast 1843-1847, so I'm assuming she converted from either the Presbyterian or Methodist church. I could find no record of Hessy's marriage, but if she was married in St Patrick's that wouldn't surprise me as there are missing records from that time. If these were her only children, Eliza may have been her mother's name.

Unsure whether Edward and Hessy shared a father, there was an adoption, or if there was a Kelso-Kelso marriage.

Do any of these names appear in your research? Can you tell me which Presbyterian or Methodist churches in the Kilgreel area I should include in my search, and whether they are searchable online?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Thanks for the update Aghadowey, good to know.  Do you have specifics on what records will be updated when they do eventually come out? 

I remember as a child hearing my grandmother and father discussing a relation who (in my grandmother's view) thought they were above her family's station, read working class.

On her death we found a detailed history she had written of the McQuillan name, not a family history.

Her gandparents were Felix McCauley and Mary Jane Shiels, and Patrick Kelly and ?Mary Ann McAteer.

Her parents, Patrick McCauley c1857 and Rose Kelly c1857, both from Ahoghill. 

I'm puzzled as to why she'd give McQuillan so much time. Can anyone help me make a connection?

Antrim / Ballymena Poorhouse/Workhouse lookup

Can't get to PRONI to do this myself.  Is anyone currently researching these records? 

Felix McCauley was born in Poorhouse in 1863, father Felix and mother (Mary) Jane Shiels, sponsor Catherine Kelly. 

Have found no marriage record for Felix and Jane, nor can I find a baptismal record for a son of theirs, my ggf, Patrick McCauley who later married a Kelly from Ahoghill

Interested in admission records which may indicate if they had children with them when admitted.

This family were RC and my ggf said his birthplace was Ahoghill, and census data shows him b1856 or 57.

Just out of curiosity: Trying to ascertain whether Catherine Kelly was a friend/relation, or an employee of the Workhouse. 

Any help greatly appreciated!

Am also looking for Kelso relations.  Would your Kelso line have lived near Ballarat in the late 1800s?  Have a John Kirk Kelso, son of Edward and Matilda (McCombe) c1852, born either Antrim Town, County Antrim, or Donaghadee, County Down. 

Edward c1827 was half-brother to my gggf, Hessie Kelso c1823.

Thanks very much for checking.
