I have just got the marriage cert back for 16th August 1856 with William Curtis aged 34 years - looks like bargeman, of west street, Gravesend - father deceased with name of Samuel - a labourer.  Ellen Allin aged 35 years spinster - no job of maybe Princes Street, Gravesend - father Joseph allin, deceased - plasterer.  He signed with a mark.  She wrote her name.  In the presence of Mary Ann Smith and Richard someone.

The old spelling of Belleek in Armagh was baleek. I am told this is Irish and pronounced roughly Ball Lough , which has an unfortunate pronunciation in English . It was anglicised to Belleek and subsequently an S was added to distinguish it from its name sake in Fermanagh .

There was a Patrick Quinn living there in the 1840's .he was a farmer .
