Family History Beginners Board / First Bangor Presbyterian Church

I've found out that the Marriage Registers for the First Bangor Church are on microfilm at Irelands Public Record Office.  Will that be the only place that has a copy?

Can anybody improve this?

My family farmed low auchleach near ardwell from 1934 to 1991 I know it well there are 2 small cottages at the east side entrance to main farm , next the sea one of which was not built until 1960's .there was an old small workers cottage one third of way up the road between low auchleach and the ruins at high auchleach , this my father converted to calf house/ hay shed, it was last lived in by tractor man who was moved to new built cottage in late 1960's. The old cottage did not even have running water and was very basic, the worker had to use a hand pump down the road . My guess would be the family lived in that old cottage which is now a shed

Many thanks.  Very interesting. I started this thread off about 4 years ago.  Pleased I kept watching it.

I visited Cairnryan cemetery.  It's very small, and there aren't many stones left to see.  As you say it's right next to Loch Ryan.  It's very well looked after, and there are a couple of war memorials there.
I still think the best bet for my Great-Grandmothers grave is Sheucan Cemetery, because of where she was living shortly before she died.  There is no stone for her there either, but there are many stones missing.

Can't make the cottage out, but noticed a "High Auchleach" to the West of Low Auchenleach.

I've found Low Auchleach - near Ardwell on a modern Ordnance Survey map that I have, but not Auchleach.
The Auchleach cottage you talk about, isn't on my map, but sounds a likely spot.  In the census, they were marked as living at "Cot ho. Auchleach.

I always get some good answers when I come on here.  (Haven't managed to be of help to anybody else yet.  Whenever I try, the questions have already been answered!)

My great-grandfather (a ploughman), and great-grandmother were living there according to the 1881 census.  They were living there with 6 children, 5 of whom were born in County Down Ireland, where the family originated from, and the youngest was born at Auchleach in August 1879. By April 1886, they had moved to Auchnotteroch, Leswalt, where my grandfather was born.

I think it must be Low Auchleach, because Auchleach wasn't in Stoneykirk Parish.  Trouble is the place I want is called Auchleach on the 1881 Census.
