I would like to find out if poss if Daniel Ballentine was my grandfathers parent it looks like my Granda Thomas Ballentine was born 1877 don't know where as he married 3 times it gives Billy Bushmills for 1 st marriage and Larne for his other 2 marriages he lived in Larne until he died 1961


Was Thomas' first marriage not the one to Margaret Armstrong that I posted above at reply #10? That marriage took place at Cairncastle Church of Ireland, just north of Larne and Thomas' residence was given as 'Ballysnodd', which is just south of Larne:

As gaffy quoted in reply #10, Thomas's second wife was Maria Hull (marriage 1903). His father was Daniel Ballintine, a carpenter.

Have you purchased, or hold the marriage record for Thomas in 1923 when he married Margaret Magee (reply #13)? His father should be named in col 8 with name and surname and (in col 9) his father's rank or profession.
