...Hugh Elliott b. 1905 Donegal; he m. a lady named Belle, first name ...


Is this 1938 marriage to Isabella Boyd a possibility?

Hi, I'm not sure if she is the right Bella or not. I don't think I ever met my gr uncle Hugh at any family reunions. I think he might have stayed in Ireland. I just know that his wife's name was Bella I don't know the surname. :-(

In the marriage's favour, Hugh's details are promising in that his residence, father's name and occupation all fit and his age is absolutely spot on:

In the 1911 census there was only one Elliott family living in Drumirrin (your Elliots), so promising as well.  So a definite maybe  :)

There were lots of Boyds in the area, but this one fits the Boyd side in the marriage, Richard Boyd (father Hugh) who married Ann Jane Boyd in 1912 and had a daughter Isabella later that year:

Thank u so much! I will check them again. I am on Ancestry.com, but they don't have the complete records,,just the indexes on some but that doesn't give the complete date or the parents names. If it's a marriage list there are a list of names, not just 2. Which makes it hard if u don't know both of the persons' names. But you both have given me so much info it is wonderful. :-)

Hi, I tried last night to find out more birth records etc from those websites but couldn't find anything. It kept says no records found..which isn't too big of a surprise as  it takes me a bit to figure out some websites..  :-[ but I haven't given up, I do have a stubborn streak, I will keep trying.

I did find some nursing records for my great aunt. I found she was a nurse in Donegal and went to London to train, so that was nice.
Take care and thanks again for your help. :-)

Thanks Hallmark, I was using Glengesh or Donegal..I don't really understand the district thing. I keep reading different websites about them, but I keep getting mixed up. So Glenties is the civil reg. district for Donegal then?  I'm going to write that down and start a list. Thanks again, much appreciated.  :D I'll go back and try that. have a good day!

Glenties is the Reg District for the part of County Donegal your family was living in at that time.

Choose Donegal from the drop down list on the left to see all the districts. There are 10 in County Donegal or part of
