Need help to figure out location of Larne, Derry, Ireland.
« on: Friday 03 July 20 11:40 BST (UK) »
Hi

I have relatives who came by ship in 1840 all from Larne, Derry, Ireland. Is this now in Northern Ireland and what is the connection to Antrim?
Thanks :)

Hi,
These must also be related.
You are very lucky to have a Census information from 1851.
Creelan .......Anna and John they are brother and sister.
1851 house number 15.  This link is the page.

This is the civil parish of Glenarm Upper which takes in the majority of the present day town of Larne.
It is south of the village of Glenarm.
