Subject: [NIR-DOWN] Down people married in Belfast 1877 - 1895
Date: Sun, 18 May 2003 08:45:14 +0100 (BST)

This will be my last post for about one week.

The number of marriages from people outside of Belfast
each year, diminished after 1880.


Marriages in Linenhall Presbyterian Church, Belfast.
All are of full age, Bachelor or Spinster unless it
says otherwise. A lot of text was illegible and where
there is a “?” it indicates that it was my
interpretation of the text. * = not legible.

I have again recorded townlands I wasn’t sure of,
rather than ignore them.
