thank you i see on these 1911 it show he 8 yrs married but i think in 1901 james is with wife and son elizabeth and james so that means that he married while still married to elizabeth unless she deid in 1902/3 but cant see that he would of married striaght away or he would of been going out with sarah surely before they married. confusing or were did elizabeth go??

The 1911 census where it states married 8 years, fits with a marriage in 1903. Maybe Elizabeth died just after the 1901 census


This looks like her death. When in 1903 did Sarah marry James?

james and elizabeth addis is the same james of sancroft st above in 1901 census aged 18 yrs old. on the elizabeth death she is 35 in 1903, but in census she 37 in 1901. i dont seem to find a marriage in 1903/4 for sarah and james at all but her name is changed i have found a sarah pentland marrying a james but is same one. if i could find james at 18 birth then i will find his mum maiden name of elizabeth who died in 1903. she was born glasgow on census

Sarah Addis and elizabeth i believe were sisters who married father and son. James was born in ligoneil but i cant find the birth for 1879 as he states on wedding cert he is 24 yrs old and i cant find any of his dads 2 marriages either but on the census in 1901 vit shows elizabeth from scotland so I wonder if he married her there then she came to live in belfast. I dont know if there was issues in 1st marriage other than James but would love to find these details. Thank you for you help

Sorry for the confusion Gins. James Armstrong's son James also married in 1903. His wife was Elizabeth Kennedy born Antrim who may have been a widow as her child Alice born in Glasgow is living with them in 1911.


On the 1911 census Elizabeth is listed as the daughter of Robert addis i.e. the sister of Sarah.

I have went to belfast gro and also proni and I cant find marriage or death cert for James armstrong of 4 wier st in 1918- 1969 nor can I find his sons death cert James junior of 42 wier st 1916-1937 living at address. Most of the sons lived in the same street over the years ie James snr son John lived at 46 weir st and James jnr 2 sons lived at 42 weir in 1939-1970 Thomas Armstrong and wife edith, thomas died in 1958. James (son of james at 42 weir st) lived at 31 with wife isabella (annabella) 1943-1980 til it was all knocked down. I really need help to get these death certs because they are not in the gro nor proni wills. dont know were else to look

I cant find sarah mcbarron nee addis marrying james armstrong but i found her death as 21.8.1941 buried roselawn.

looking to see if her son edward born 1904 daughter maryann born 1906 survied her and married. I know her son john born 1908 lived til he was a hundred died 2008 married dinah niblock from 46 weir st belfast, dont know if they had children.

lastly daughter of sarah ann born 1910 named sarah ann im unsure if she married or died in infancy but I dont know what connection Harrison and mckibbin has to the mother Sarah ann but she is buried with these in same graveplot.

The Harrison and Mckibbin lived 10 arygle street in the 1920s-1954 when william harrison died.

I think possible one of her daughters married william.

Any information of the connection between these will help or family issed from children of sarah armtrong (which says she was a spintser when died but dont know whom was informant)

I thought Sarah Ann Armstrong from 4 Weir Street Belfast was a Relation I was Searching for but I have just got back from Belfast and found out while there that this is the wrong Sarah.

The only last Address I have for Sarah Ann Armstrong is 66 Pernau St Belfast in 1912 with Husband James and Children Edward Mary Ann John and Sarah Ann Jnr.

I dont know where else in information and paperwork I can look to find this Family.

I have found out that John Armstrong had a Daughter Dinah in 1930s and she married George Scott in 1960s but I cant find if Edward and the Sisters were married and had Children.

Can someone help with which sites to look for these as I have done Street Directories, GRO, PRONI, and National Health.

I am not able to trace the death of Michael mcbarron of Belfast abt 1900 1901 but on his daughters Elizabeth birth certificate 1901 shows her father deceased.

the family was living in most of the houses in pernau street from 1897.

Michael was older than sarah ann when married and in pension age.

As your help found that sarah then met and had children with james Armstrong after death of her husband past.

Ive not been able to trace the 4 childrens marriages or deaths. Ive only found their birth certificates. I couldn't find any marriage for James and sarah either so could it be possible they could just of lived together?

Sarah and James last seen together 1911 living weir street and I cant find them after that. please can anyone help me find any on this information BMD or were they moved. Thank you
