Thanks.  It looks like they're at the Library only.  Long way to come on the off chance - one day hopefully!!

Thank you for all this, I'm very grateful for your help.  Ancestry had given me the births of the 2 boys but not John, (although the English censuses I have for him all say he was born in Belfast).  I looked at the links you posted to the deaths of James and Margaret Sturgeon, and I noticed that both had their births registered by their daughter Margaret McKie.  Assuming my Maggie is really Margaret, she was married to Samuel Fawcett by then, so maybe this is a different family?  Or am I missing something?  I wondered whether Maggie may have been baptised in the Upper Falls Methodist Church where she married.  Does anyone know if I would I be able to find the records for this church online please?

I'm looking to find the birth or baptism of Maggie Surgenor sometime between 1850 and 1860, probably about 1857. The first concrete information I have is that she married Samuel Fawcett on 24 Jan 1879 at the Upper Falls Methodist Church in Belfast.  They were both of full age and Maggie was living at 30 Railway Street. Her father was James Surgenor. The couple have 3 children (Thomas 1879, William 1881? and John 1882) in Belfast before moving to Portsmouth in Hampshire.  They never returned (permanently) to Ireland.
I am inexperienced at Irish research.  Please can someone suggest how I go about finding the records?

Hi Richard
No problem - I'll keep looking.  The other names you quote are not names I've come across yet.
Several trees on Ancestry show Mary's parents as Samuel and Mary, but none of them have any sources.   :(

Hi Richard,
I know your post is very old, but I wondered if you managed to resolve it as I'm just facing the same dilemma?  i've actually found THREE Mary Verrall baptisms in St Mary Eastbourne that could be 'our' Mary:
Verrall — Mary of John and Anne baptiz'd Sept 13th 1767
Verrall — Mary of Samuel & Mary privately baptiz'd Aug 17 admitted into y Chh Aug 19 1770
Verrall —Mary of Thomas & Elizabeth baptiz'd Oct 3 1773

I don't have a clue which is the right one!  I've tried tracing as many Mary Verrall marriages as I can backwards but got nowhere.

I don't know if you know but Mary died in the Workhouse on 2 Nov 1848 of 'Decay of Nature' and was buried at St Mary's on 5 Nov.


It was!  Very helpful staff. 

SOLVED, thank you all.  I phoned the Crem, and not only did they give me her burial date, but told me there were 2 other children buried with her that I didn't know about (the burials not the children!).  Thank you all for your help.

Thanks.  I'll call the Crem later.

I don't know the area so I'm not sure about that.  I know it's in Caernarfon Road, Bangor.
