The family remained in Ballymena (at 3 different addresses) where first 4 children were born then they moved to Coleraine, where my mother was born on 20/07/1896.

red mail Craig & Nickell (Nickle) families
Hello, I'm searching for my ancestors in Northern Ireland, but I do not have much to go on. However, I do know of the strong connection of the two families Craig and Nickell (Nickle)--sometimes Nickles. It is my understanding that Nickell (Nickle) and Craig are common in North Antrim especially around the town of Ballymena. This connection, I believe, may be a key to finding, particularly, my Craigs in Ulster. "Across the pond" in America my ancestors arrived sometime in the early 18th century. My William Craig married Elizabeth Nickell. Their son, Robert Craig, born 1781, also married an Elizabeth Nickell. This Elizabeth was a niece of William's wife. William Craig's father-in-law was Isaac Nickell. Isaac's father was John Nickell of Northern Ireland. Thank you very much for your time and patience.

red mail Armstrong/Reid/McCoy
I am searching for information about James ARMSTRONG b. 1840, son of Samuel Armstrong and Jane (Jenny) REID. James was born in Ballymena but married Anna B. McCOY "of Belfast" in Belfast sometime in the late 1850s or early 1860s. The Armstrong family was from Ballykeel townland and births and marriages were registered in First Presbyterian at Ballymena. After about 1850 there doesn't seem to be any evidence of them in Ballymena and I am wondering if they may all (or most of them) have gone to Belfast to find work. James Armstrong and Anna B. (maybe Annabelle)McCoy Armstrong came to the USA in 1865. My grandfather, their son, William C. Armstrong was born in Belfast in 1863. He may have had an older sister, Eliza Jane, born a few years earlier. I'm hoping to find information about this family. Thanks, Marilyn in New Hampshire USA

red mail Jane Holden
Unfortunately little is known about Jane Holden, although hearsay states she was born at Rothkenny (is there such a place, or was it the name of a house or farm?) 14 October 1832, Ballymena, County Antrim. Assume she was of Anglo-Irish extraction asfamily history (unproven) states she was related to Hannah More of 'bluestocking' fame. She obviously migrates with her family to southern New Zealand, marrying Paul Augustus Fredric in Dunedin on 4 October 1864, leaving five children of their own and adopting two others. Jane dies in Stratford (Taranaki) 18 February 1917. Seeking any assistance as to possible family, and whether Rothkenny was/is an actual place.
