Not you, telling porkies! - :-X
I find it darn difficult to keep Brenda's (my wife) and my family all together in my mind, and as for dates - forget it.
Now where was I?
'Oh' yes - you are thinking that your Gt.Aunt may now be right, if so, I have great (no pun intended) admiration for Catherine Sophia S, Snr.  Makes the research a bit of a challenge though.
However. as we are fairly sure as to the family Church I wonder if it is worth consideration to contact them to see if they can help with our efforts?

Many thanks Dathai for all your helpful information, every Mairis in the irish census and birth marriage and death records are the same family from Rosemount, in the 1911 census they said they had 11 children, 8 still living, I now have these names: Edward, Fannie, Irene, Florence, Frederick, Valentine,  Rosalie, Ruly.... they lived in 6 Vernon Ros St Lukes before Rosemount, 5 Mt Vernon Row after Rosemount and then Belvelly Coby with the son V, I wonder if any descendants still living in Ireland.... Thanks again for your help, my research is on Rosemount House and the people who lived there, I now can go from 1870 to date:

Valentine Poole De Merisco Mairis, Rosemount, ‎1870 - 1882, William Good ‎1882 - 1891, William A Stoakes ‎1892 - 1913, Thomas William Good ‎1913 - 1923, Denis Russell ‎1923 - 1970, Ross Corbett ‎1970 - 1972, Michael Hegarty ‎1972 - 1974, Jerry Wrixon ‎1974 - 1989, P C 1989 - to date... I am a Russell Gt Grandson & Grandson.... Kind regards, Roger

Hello from California,
I am the great grandson of Marian "Polly" Woodside whose daughter, Jeannie Woodside, died in 1903 as a result of a riding accident in California. The barque, Jeannie Woodside, was named after her; and was built by her father William John Woodside in Belfast. I happened upon a post on this website that mentioned the later ownership of the ship and that a painting of ship exists. I would appreciate any further information you can supply; and I am happy to provide additional information about Jeannie's family and their colorful history in Belfast and sailing around the world. Incidentially, the barque "Polly" Woodside, named after Jeannie's mother, is still afloat as part of the Maritime Museum in Melbourne, Australia.
I may have an opportunity to be in Cork for a couple of days this coming July, 2018; and I would welcome meeting anyone who would like to share family lore and tales of life at sea in the late 19th Century.
Cheers
