I came across the following people who although
resident in Down married in Linenhall Presbyterian
Church Belfast. I wondered if they may have some
interest to you.

All are of full age unless it says otherwise. Much is
indistinct, so if there are gaps it is because I could
not discern what was written. There are 40 years from
the 1830s and I shall try not to take that lenght of
time to transcribe them, I started in 1871.

married Margaret Campbell, father Hugh a carpenter,
both bride and groom lived in Bangor.
