Hi Becoe

I see you have Courtney's in Ballemena and I think mine came from that area, could we see if we have a connection or help each other please?

Your PM is too full and you may not be able to receive any more PM's, you will have to delete some.

Kind regards

Hi,

I am looking for any information on a Mary Wolfendon/Wolfington who married a John Titterington. They had at least one son, called Edward (born circa 1840 +/- 10 yrs). They lived in N.Ireland.

Kind regards,

Sarah

 I am a descendant of Edward  Wolfenden who migrated  from Belfast to New Zealand  in the early 1900's.  He is my great grandfather. Edward was born  in 1883 to Robert Wolfenden  (died 1887?) and Mary (n Watson). Family records indicate that they were in the linen trade and that  Robert  three sisters who migrated to the USA.

Going through family records a Mr William Wolfenden corresponded to my  Edward in 1927  William was noted to be the propietor  of the Duke of Gordon Hotel Kingussie Inverness-shire. The uncertainty of the relationship is noted.

The parents of Robert Wolfenden who married Mary Watson in Keady 1st Presbyterian Church in 1881 were Thomas Wolfenden and Ann Jane Lewis who got married in Belfast in 1851, Thomas was a 21 year old bleacher at that time (his father Thomas was given as a blanket manufacturer), Thomas and Ann Jane and family then seemed to be County Antrim based (eg. lived in Moorfields for a while).

The parents of William Wolfenden who owned the Duke of Gordon Hotel, Kingussie were John Wolfenden and Mary Anne Corner who got married in Magheralin in 1860, John was a 28 year old farmer at that time (his father Edward was given as a farmer), John and Mary Anne and family then seemed to be Counties Down / Armagh based (eg. lived in Taughrane and Lurgan for a while).  I suspect any connection between William Wolfenden and Robert Wolfenden lies further back.

A couple of other sons born to the couple as well, Hubert Watson Wolfenden in 1885, George Wolfenden in 1886.
