red mail from Killinchy to Manchester
My g.g.g.grandfather was James Thompson who we think married Jane Hanna in Presbyterian Churches, Killinchy and Kilmud, County Down,in 1819 when she was 18 years old. As far as we know at present they had 3 children; Edward Thompson,(1821),James Thompson,(1826),and Christina Thompson,(1831). Edward was my g.g.grandfather. All we know for certain is that Edward's father was James and both he and his father came from Ireland. Through process of elimination we came up with Jane Hanna as the possible wife for James. Edward's son was also Edward, the father of my granddad David. There is little known of these people and it doesn't help by the fact that the 1861 census for parts of Manchester is missing.They lived in Hulme and Edward sr. was married at Cathedral in Manchester to Margaret Clarke who was born of Irish parents (Robert and Isabella Clarke)in Campsie ,Scotland.Edward jnr. (married Sarah Holden) was also Christened at Cathedral. Granddad David was Christened in Clifton (Ashbourne,Derby) in 1875.Does anyone know anything about James Thompson * abt. 1800 in Ireland,and /or where the family lived in 1861, Manchester or Ashbourne area? If our assumption is right they must have moved from Ireland after 1831 as Christina was born in Ireland (That is if the wife. of james is Jane Hanna .We think that it might be possible that they first settled in Liverpool before moving to Manchester as there are many Thompson's there.Any snippets of info are very welcome.

MARSHALL, BROWN, GIBSON families lived in the Tullycore, Ballymorron, Killinchy area from at least the late 1700s to the mid-1800s before going to the US. I am told there are still some people of these surnames living in that area.

Would like to contact them or anyone researching any of them.
