The Irish Genealogy site (free) have vital records for Northern Ireland counties up until 1921- births, deaths and Catholic marriages 1864-1921 and non-Catholic marriages 1845-1921.
GRONI, Belfast's online site (pay) have births more than 100 years old, marriages more than 75 years old and deaths more than 50 years old.

Thank you. I shall take a look later

The family myth (so to speak) is a story that has been passed down from generations, and this story is 'supported' by a marriage certificate

Robert Owens Meadth married Annie Painter on 17th July 1921 in Barton Upon Irwell, Lancaster.

He is 27 years old, a bachelor and his occupation is Motor Salesman. He is living at 6 Osborne Avenue, Weade. His father is listed as Hugh John Meadth (deceased) and his father's occupation as 'of independent means.'

It is believed that the Lord of Meath funded his upbringing.

Robert was born in 1899 and the 1901 census says he was living with John H Meadth and was his step son.

I am unsure if John H and Hugh J are the same person or not. Robert's marriage certificate says that his father had died prior to 1921. Obtaining his father's death certificate might unlock a few answers.

I also want to try and find John/Hugh on the 1911 census.
