Subject: [NIR-DOWN] Down people married in Belfast 1895 - 1908 inclusive
Date: Tue, 27 May 2003 15:48:33 +0100 (BST)

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. Linenhall
closed in 1893 and a new church The Crescent opened, I
think this was in University Street, Belfast.

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

Thank you to all those who sent me messages of
support. This is the last of the marriages in
Linenhall Street. There are more after 1908 but I
wondered if they were worth continuing with? I will
start tomorrow to list people born outside of
Holywood, who married there as Presbyterians.
