Thank you Arthurk and Aghadowey.  That's great - it really helps give me a much richer picture of Bertie as an individual, plus it confirms he was married, which I suspected but did not know or have any sources to support.

Thanks again!

Thanks wee Hugh, this confirms and updates some of what I've discovered already on this thread.

The details for Rev R H Faulkner's wife are not quite right, as I've seen her birth record and on 1911 census, so her father's surname was Dallas, her mother was Dallas nee Boyle, not the other way round.   One of her brothers was called Dorrington so for me that explains where their son's name came from.

Rev. Leslie's book looks like a good resource - do you have to be a member of the Ulster Historical Foundation to get hold of it?  Regardless, good to know it exists.

The books are available in bookshops, but I think they cost £40 each.  I recently picked up one volume in the Oxfam bookshop at about half price, although in new condition.

I misunderstood the way the Raphoe book expressed his wife's name.
Hope his mother's maiden surname was correct: it was given as Hogg in the Connor book.
