Antrim / McAulays of Antrim
« on: Thursday 17 September 20 23:48 BST (UK)  »
I mistakenly posted this on the Armagh board (sorry for the confusion). I am looking for any information on the McAulays of Belfast/Antrim. More specifically, an Elizabeth (b. 1837) or Rebecca (b.1835) to parents Thomas McAulay and Margaret Brown. Any hints would be most appreciated - thanks!

Armagh / Looking for ancestors/information on William Brown and Rebecca Armour
« on: Thursday 17 September 20 01:35 BST (UK)  »
A real puzzle, with no information to go on. William and Rebecca are supposedly from Northern Ireland - county unknown. Both were probably born in the late 1700s. They had a daughter, Margaret Brown who was b. around 1819, in Northern Ireland. Sorry for the lack of details, but I'm sadly lacking any additional information. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello - looking for anyone that has information on A William McAulay m. to a Diana McCarrol (both born in the late 1700s in Northern Ireland). Unsure of the the County. The only information I have is that they had a son, Thomas, who was born in Northern Ireland around 1809, and later settled in Scotland. Thanks in advance!

Lanarkshire / Looking for ancestors of McAulays from Calton Glasgow area
« on: Tuesday 15 September 20 20:30 BST (UK)  »
Hello - I am looking for anyone who is tied to a Thomas & Margaret McAulay (nee Brown) of Glasgow - Calton or Lanark. I would love to be able to learn more specific information on either of them prior to their coming to Scotland (it seems that both came from Northern Ireland, but I have no record to prove this - only the fact that they indicate their place of birth as Ireland on the 1861 census). I know of a different Thomas & Margaret in the area, but their children are different. My Thomas & Margaret's children are as follows: Elizabeth, Rebecca, William, & Margaret. Of these, I can only confirm the birth date of Elizabeth McAulay, who later married Joseph Murphy (b. 1837, probably in Armagh; d. 1905 in Dennistoun). As of the 1861 census, they are living in Glasgow, Calton.

I have also located a record for the Christening of a Margaret McAulay on April 6, 1855 at the Great Hamilton Street Reformed Church, to parents Thomas and Margaret McAulay, but I'm not sure this is the correct Margaret, as her age is off by 6 years from the census, and, it is in a Protestant church, when previous marriages were in the Catholic church. Any help would be appreciated!


Lanarkshire / Murphy family - Lanarkshire area - c.1870
« on: Tuesday 25 August 20 01:36 BST (UK)  »
hello to all - I am researching family that lived in Lanarkshire back in the mid to late 1800s. Of interest is a Theodore Block/ch, who married a Catherine Murphy (nee McAuley). Catherine's father, Joseph Murphy lived with his mother, Hanna Murphy (nee McConville) at 53 Great Hamilton Street in Carlton c.1851. Joseph married Elizabeth McAuley and moved to  161 Cumberland Street in Govan. Finally, they end up moving to No. 2 Risk Street, where they had my GGM, Catherine Murphy (who later marries Theodore Block). They loved all over Lanarkshire, but lived on Pine Street and Rose Street.

I am look for ANY information on my family - pictures of the area as it was, pics of family or friends. If anyone has any stories about these families, I would GREATLY appreciate it! After four years of hitting brick walls, would be nice to have some sort of breakthrough, no matter how small it is. Hoping some of you can help. Thanx in advance.
