I知 a new member trying to trace my Irish roots
« on: Tuesday 24 April 18 23:19 BST (UK) »
Hi there everyone I知 trying to trace my Irish family of which I have very little information and I am keen to find out who and where they might be today. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
My name is Daniel Dunlop. I live in Ayr, Scotland.
I never had the pleasure of meeting any of my grandparents and I have no knowledge other than the enclosed.
My grandfather was married in Belfast in 1913 after meeting my grandmother when he had gone over to work in the shipyard.
My grandmother and her family were originally from Dublin.
20th April 1882 my great grandfather and great grandmother were married in north Dublin.
Edmund Wilson Sullivan and Alice McKeown.
19th July 1913 my grandfather and grandmother were married in St Mathews Belfast.
Andrew Dunlop and Eileen Sullivan.
According to the census in 1911 the Sullivan family resided at 41 Parker Street Pottinger
Edward (Edmund) Alice, Evelyn, Eileen and Mary.
All further information will be greatly appreciated.
Thank you



Thanks to information received from members I have found out that the Sullivan family were wholesale tobacco and cigar merchants who traded as;
Edmund Sullivan & Co
47 Fleet Street( Later 63 Lower Gardiner Street)
Dublin

Edmund and Alice had 3 daughters.
Evelyn, Eileen (my grandmother) and Mary.

It would be fantastic if I can find any more recent information.

Thanking you in advance.

Hello Daniel and welcome to RootsChat

Do you live in Ayr, Scotland or Ayr, Queensland, Australia?  Perhaps you could modify your profile to let people know.  Sometimes where you are can help people answer your queries.

Irish genealogy is notoriously difficult, though from the dates given at least your 'happenings' are since civil registration in Ireland  :)  :)  :)

Good luck with your quest

... According to the census in 1911 the Sullivan family resided at 41 Parker Street Pottinger
Edward, Alice, Evelyn, Eileen and Mary ...


Looks like Alice died the following year (matches Eileen's 1913 marriage address):

Your great grandparents wedding cert

Note that one of the witnesses is Marion Mckenna, possible sister of the bride.

Also The grooms father John Sullivan is Deceased, and this suggests the brides father isn't, so you should be able to find a death cert for him

Mary Sullivan married Alexander Hamilton on 25 July 1906

There daughter Alice was born on 28 May 1907.

And there son Alexander in Larne on 8 June 1912.
This could be Alex in 1911

Hi Cwellan,

I hope you don't mind as I'm unsure if you or some others may not know, at the bottom of each page/thread, in the brown coloured portion, 2nd column, below where it says 'Your Tools' (written in white), there's a link which has "ShrinkLink (make long links short)" where you can input long links & end up with this...

http://www.rootschat.com/links/01ly7/

Which is a link to your original long link...

https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/captcha.jsp

A very useful thing & saves a lot of space especially when using a link to a source in your tree or anyones tree.
