Aye, aye Capt Jock!
I would love to learn more, if I'm not putting you to too much trouble.
If you are happy to deposit details here, that would be great - it means they're in the public domain if anyone else is interested.
I look forward very much to hearing from you in due course.
Thank you for getting in touch.

Some information from the previous reply was removed, as the source was a website where it clearly states:

Fascinating stuff, Capt Jock; thank you.
The earliest Colbert we have to date, is William - we believe he arrived in Waterford from France, in 1690, ironically to escape religious persecution - who'd have thought Ireland was a sensible alternative!!
You've certainly given us something to think about - many thanks.

I am very late entering this conversation and may be of little help!
My great great grandmother was Sarah Gilbert (1828-1910), daughter of William Gilbert a prominent Belfast jeweller and silversmith. Sarah married Rev Samuel Mateer.
Sarah's younger sister was Emma Gilbert (2 Oct 1839 - 6 Jan 1866) who was the first wife of Hugh Mack. They had 2 daughters, Emma Laura Mack (b1863) and Alice Gilbert Mack (b1865) but Emma died when they were very young. I understood from my grandmother (1893-1973) that the 2 sisters lived together in Eglantine Ave, Belfast, they never married and were rather eccentric.
Family information I have relates to Gilberts and not Macks.

Thanks. Do you have the actual date of birth of Alice Gilbert Mack in 1865. Her mother died on 6 January 1866 and I wonder if it was related to childbirth?

Alice Mack's birth registration is online- born 25 Dec.1865:
https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/images/birth_returns/births_1866/03545/2304944.pdf

Mother's death will eventually be available on same site (death imaged back to 1878 at the moment, I think) and you will be able to see cause of death.

Emma Laura Mack born 21 Mar.1864-

Hi hmstew
It's great to hear from you!
The elderly sisters are not directly related to my husband, being the product of Hugh Mack's first marriage, and having had no children of their own.  My husband is Hugh's gg-grandson, and my father-in-law remembers fondly the elderly maiden aunts. He can recall seeing them at family gatherings at David Mack's (their half brother) house on Windsor Avenue.  My father-in-law says he was amazed by their longevity, Emma in particular, given both of them were heavy smokers and enjoyed a sherry or two! And it was sherry, specifically.  They apparently did not have a house of their own, preferring instead to live in a guest house.
I, too, have wondered if their mother died in or shortly after childbirth - the website Aghadowey mentions may be able to enlighten us, in due course.
Thanks for responding!
Gail
