Roberts family of Downpatrick
« on: Tuesday 18 September 12 08:13 BST (UK) »
Searching for descendants of Roberts family, in the 1901 census living in Stillorgan, but in 1911 Amelia (mother) had remarried Robert Nixon and was living in Downpatrick with her youngest son, Edward. Another son, John, a groom in 1911 lived in Newcastle.  He was killed in World War 1 while serving with the North Irish Horse.  I would love to hear from anyone with a connection to this family.

Amelia's first husband was a Thomas Roberts - a gardener/labourer/coachman.

baptisms for several of the children are on the IrishGenealogy website, all are in Taney CofI parish with residence given as Somerville/Summerville.

see : Roberts baptisms, Dublin

Summerville is the name of a house/estate located in the townland of Churchtown Lower near to Dundrum. It's located about 4km west of Stillorgan North townland.

Iwas searching sites for the Roberts of Downpatrick and found your old post. My Great Grandmother was Amelia Roberts who married Mr Nixon in Downpatrick in 1902. I have a lot of information about the family if you are still searching.
