Help finding Marriage of Christy Kelly and Adelaide McNeill c. 1907
« on: Thursday 08 March 18 19:26 GMT (UK) »
Can anyone help

I have a census result in Belfast showing Christy and Adelaide in 1911, with their 2 children - Chrsity and Adelaide.

http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1911/Down/Ormeau/Empress_Street/211724/

I have been able to find the birth for Adelaide - she is Catherine Adelaide and born at the address in the census.

I have also found a birth for a younger son John - born 9th May 1911.

I cannot find Christy and Adelaide's marriage or either of them in the 1901 census, I have tried searching both Ireland and England.

Their son John is baptised in St Matthews in Belfast and he married Bridie Savage in 1942.

Possibly this family, if so, like her daughter her full name is Catherine Adelaide.

Catherine Adelaide McNeil, 1881, Jul-Aug-Sep, South Shields, 10a/686.  MMN Cocherane

1891,  RG12; Piece: 4159; Folio: 31; Page: 13
John McNeil    46, seagoing steward, born Nova Scotia
Catherine McNeil    38
James McNeil    17
Mary Ellen McNeil    14
Jane Bridget McNeil    11
Catherine A McNeil    8, South Shields
Marrie McNeil    7

I think this is them in Scotland in 1901, but Catherine Adelaide isn't with them.  I'm guessing Mary E Watson is their dau, now married.
1901, 41 West College St, Glasgow.
John Mcneil    52
Catherine Mcneil    49
Marie Mcneil    11
Mary E Watson    24
James Watson    24
Catherine A Watson    6 Mo

Thanks Libby

One part of the mystery solved!

Now for Christopher Kelly

I have found a birth in August 1871 for a Christopher Kelly in Guiness, Co Down to a Christopher Kelly and Mary McCann.

This is a different Christopher to the one in Guiness in 1901, as his father is Hugh.

So I am hopeful that this is the correct Christopher!!

Thanks so much everyone

I have got the certificate and it proves that Christophers parents are Christopher Kelly and Mary McCann, so the above birth is correct!
