Irish place name? Co. Down
« on: Tuesday 08 May 12 20:23 BST (UK) »
Hello  :D,  Would appreciate some help on deciphering the following two place names in the left-hand image....I'm happy the first word is Down, as in County Down, but the town/village names I'm clueless on!

Also in the right-hand image, what is said below the first Hopton Street?

Thank you in advance,

A

Hi anabanana :)

I also see Ar(d)quin for the second place. 
Could the first one be "Stroul"?  The only Stroul I can see on a modern map is in Scotland, but it might be a townland name in Down.

The name under Hopton Street looks like "Dunlop Land/Lund/Lunch"  ???

Cheers
Prue

Wonder if the first one is supposed to be Struell (Down Civil Parish, Downpatrick Poor Law Union/registration district)?
Away sorting out DNA matches... I may be gone for some time many years!

Thank you all - Aghadowey; Prue and Bristolloggerheads.  That makes sense - Ardquin and Struell,,they are quite close to eachother from what I can see on the map - husband from Struell and his wife, Ardquin.  Ancestry transcribed them as Stroud and Azgrin!  ;D
