For some reason you posted on the Lancashire board but there doesn't seem to be any connection to Lancashire from the info found.

I will ask the moderator to merge that post with this one for continuity

The marriage certificate should list their residences at time of marriage as well as fathers' names & occupations. For earlier records you'll need to search for church records (if they survive) so the marriage certificate will also list where the marriage took place (may well be in bride's church).

Are you sure of the names? Can't see the marriage anywhere in Northern Ireland yet.

Thanks, Carole.

This marriage is on FS but I can't match it to a William Rowney

The groom for that marriage is named Venables and it took place 12 Feb.1874.

As other contributors have mentioned, the William John Rowney (or Roney) who married Annabella Foster is not the person you think was born about 1875.

William John Rowney/Roney was born about 1843 and married Annabella Foster (born about 1845 and died 1901-04) on 3 June 1862 at Townsend Presbyterian Church, Belfast.  By the way, for some reason Annabella is called Isabella on the marriage certificate. They had eight children to my knowledge:

Eliza 1864
Margaret Jane 1866
William John (junior) 1868
Samuel 1870
George Foster 1872-1942 (my grandfather)
Robert James 1875
Annabella 1877
Thomas 1882-1933


William was a printer, though he tried his luck on the railways in the 1860s. The family had moved to Newry by 1877 and back sometime in the 1890s.

Hope this helps.
