Donaldson/Coulter of Mill Park Co. Down Ireland
« on: Saturday 14 November 09 18:44 GMT (UK) »
Can any member please help me learn more about the families of John DONALDSON b:c1812 Mill Park Co Down (believe that is in Tullyshire), who married Annie COULTER b: 1814 Co. Down.
Their children were: Samuel D 1839-1902 arriv. NZ 1860;
John D b: 1845 Mill Park; Hugh D arriv. NZ 1860 & Elizabeth D b: 1846.
I believe some of the family may have also sailed to Australia or a brother further back, family.

Also wondered was Mill Park Tullyshire a small village around early 1800's.

Thank you,
Tiffaney

Mill Park or Tullyshire are not names of townlands according to www.thecore.com/seanruad

Someone else mentioned Tullyshire in another post a while back-
www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?PHPSESSID=b0b12ec00905db3f9496489d3188ef3e&topic=377379.0

Perhaps someone that knows that area of Co. Down will be able to give you more details.

I can tell you that you will need to search for church records (if they exist) as registration of births, deaths and Catholic marriages began 1864 and registration of all other marriages in 1845.

Hi Tiffaaney,   There was a Mill Park estate at Laurencetown, which is a village beside Tullylish, which is outside Banbridge.  Have a look at http://www.raymondscountydownwebsite.com/ 
 There is plenty of info on the south Down area there.

  Cheers,   Sam

Sorry aghadshadowey & Sam for your posts.  I am still not receiving notifications which is rather embarrassing when members take the time to do lookups and help me.
A friend on rootsweb notified an administrator on my behalf & I did received an email but it was my deceased husbands username.

Fantastic site Sam - yes there are several Donaldsons on there - thankyou so much for giving me URL
regards,
Tiffaney

Hi there, I got online to try & find where Mill Park was, where my great great grandfather John Donaldson was born in 1812 and I found your post so joined this site. You're query's pretty old so I hope you still can get this. We're obviously talking about the same relative as I'm related to his son John who came out to NZ, not sure when but sometime after his brothers Samuel & Hugh in the late 1800's. John Donaldson (b 1812) was married to Eliza Coulter (b. 1816 d. 1848) and she's buried in Ardkeen, John's buried in Ardquin. Hard to find on Google but in that County Down area. Must be near Mill Park, wherever that is/was. Also, John senior's parents was Samuel Donaldson (b. 1782 d. 1855) and mother Anne (b.1776 d.1841). Hope this helps.
