Looking for Winchester families
« on: Thursday 28 June 12 04:04 BST (UK) »
James Winchester married Sarah Ann Hamilton in 1861 and with several children immigrated to New Zealand in 1874 from County Down.

James had a brother Christopher Winchester who married Jane Pollock. Their children are James 1868, Christopher 1869, Hamilton 1871, Robert 1872, Mary 1874, and David 1876. Does anyone know what happened to this family? 

I know James and Christopher had two sisters, Ellen who married Ephraim Burns in 1866, and Mary Jane who married William Cook in 1872. Mary Jane and William also came to New Zealand.

Any help greatly appreciated.        Heather01

Is this Jane Pollock, son David and son Christopher and family in 1901?

On 9th February 1891, in Ballymore Church of Ireland, County Armagh, a Christopher WINCHESTER married Jane Elizabeth GIBSON. Maybe the same couple as in the 1901 census record?

BTW, the same family is also in the 1911 census, now living in Hillview Street...

This is a possible candidate for son Robert living in Ewart's Row in 1911, a Robert Winchester (with father Christopher) having married Elizabeth Jane Patton on the 13th April 1895 in Trinity Church of Ireland, Belfast:

Wow that looks promising. Have checked the ages and they match my dates. I think you have found them. I am delighted to say the least  :D
Quite exciting and will now work through the leads you have given me.
Thank you very much.

There's also a James Winchester (with father Christopher) who married a Margaret Bigger on the 23 April 1896 in Albert Street Presbyterian Church, Belfast with a comment to the effect that James' father (Christopher) is deceased.

I couldn't see James in the Ireland census but this is a good candidate for wife Margaret in 1911:

And Mary Winchester (with father Christopher) of Whiteabbey married Joseph Lockhart of Tandragee on the 7th July 1915 in Ballymore Church of Ireland, the same church where Christopher Winchester married Jane Elizabeth Gibson 24 years earlier in 1891. Possibly related?
