Gone off the Planet ???
« on: Saturday 27 August 11 14:03 BST (UK) »
Would anyone like to tell me about JAMES BELSHAW Watch and Clock maker of MAIN STREET, LURGAN. Northern Ireland,1846. but particularly what family he had, as my Great Great Grandmother was MARHARET BELSHAW, but I just can't find any information at all about BELSHAW'S that is why I am convinced the name has gone off the planet.

Am I convinced right. ?? If not would someone Please please help me.

Thanks,

Heppy

Do you think that perhaps James Belshaw might have moved to Belfast?? Here is one who is a pawnbroker (and watchmaker??)

Belshaw, James & John, pawn brokers, 2 New Durham Street and 49 Devis (Divis) Street

There are lots of Belshaws mentioned in Marriages etc. on AncestryIreland

http://www.ancestryireland.co.uk/

Are you sure that your Margaret was from Lurgan?

Hi there,
I am looking for any information on a Richard Belshaw born ~1770 Shan(k)hill, near Lurgan. This information came from his army discharge records in 1809. Its also stated he was a weaver. On discharge he moved to London, England, married and had a family, from whom I am descended. Thereafter his surname has been spelt Bellshaw. It is our understanding that his forbearers were French Huguenot refugees. 
I would appreciate any help please.
Kind regards
Jocelyn

Have you got Richard's marriage details?
His father's name should be on the certificate.

Unless he married after civil registration started in England (1837) there won't be a certificate. A church record of the marriage might, or might not, include his father's name.
