Baird Family in Coleraine
« on: Thursday 30 December 10 23:47 GMT (UK) »
Hi looking for info on The Baird family - my Great Great grandmother Nancy Baird married Robert Caldwell in 1872 December (new row pres church, coleraine), was born 1852 and died in 1896.  I cannot find any information if she had siblings or where her parents were.  Any help would be appreciated.   I have had a lot of help re the Caldwell side so I thank everyone.   :)

Hello again!

From the Caldwell thread there's the marriage-
Robert Caldwell married Nancy Baird on 24 Dec 1872 in Terrace Row 3rd Presbyterian Church.

The actual marriage certificate should list important details such as her father's name and occupation as well as Nancy's residence at the time of the marriage.

I'll probably get to Coleraine Library in mid-January once school holidays are over and can try to check the microfilm for the marriage if you haven't found the details by then.

Hi,
    I note that there is a discrepency in the location of the marriage. My sources say Terrace Row Presbyterian Church and Jeni says New Row Presbyterian Church.

My Great Great Uncle married a Braid from the Coleraine area:-

William GUTHRIE, oldest son of Samuel & Margaret Guthrie [nee Wray]of North Ballinteer, married Martha BRAID, third daughter of John & Elizabeth Braid [nee Rankin] of Mullenhead on 1st June 1876 by the Rev. Dr. Wylie at Terrance Row Presbyterian Church, Coleraine, Co Londonderry, Northern Ireland.

In 1880 they emigrated to Canada and in 1881 moved to Wisconsin, USA. Along with William & Martha, were 4 children from Williams first marrage. His first wife, Sarah Anne died young at the age of 31 years.
