Hi guys

I was looking for my Fryer/Frier and Pentland in Lurgan/Shankill and saw your enquiry.

I dont know if its of any help but an Agnes Muriel ORR born Belfast 1924 married a William Pentland in Sept 1945.

I would be delighted if any one can tell me who Williams parents were, especially if they were from Lurgan or therabouts!

Hi Sunny... is it Jim then javascript:replaceText('%20;)',%20document.postmodify.message);

I note Fryer is one of your Antrim interests?

William, Lydia, Robert, Emily in there at all?

My grandparents were James Orr and Margaret Foye. They married in Lurgan on 23 July 1919 and one of the witnesses was GEORGE ORR.  Does anyone know anything about him?  My mother cannot recall an uncle George but he must be related in some way.

There were a couple of George Orrs in Dunmurry on the 1911 census
George snr, 46yr, carter, b Co Armagh, wife Sarah 36 b Tyrone, [married 17 years,4 children], George jnr 16 b England, Plain Flax Weaver, Sarah jnr b England, Thomas 8 b Belfast and Alexander, 5 b Antrim

On the Fryer front..

My Emily born c 1 Dec 1854 had a brother Robert born 1831 Co. Antrim.

She may also have had a (possibly elder twin) brother Frederick born Camus Juxta Mourne which is where I thought she was born!

I think her parents were William & Lydia but until the other day I had nothing solid on them. Now I know there were a family with this name who originated in England, possibly Wellington, Shropshire who were Tax / Excise folk and went all ove ireland.

I also know mine were connected with an Emely or Emmeline who lived mst of her life in Edinburgh as a companion.

Any bells ringing?

Yes, bit slow on the uptake there  :)
I don't have any bells ringing as yet but interesting to see a lot of Fryer and Orr info here so will look out for them.
