I am seeking any information on any Quinn families from Co Down & Co Armagh that may have had links to Belfast.
My Quinns started off in Belfast abt.1800-40's as Shoemakers but seeking confirmation on where they came from.
Names and dates include:-
Margaret Moore (nee Agnew) or other way round - widow with children
wed abt.1860's Belfast
Robert Quinn abt.1800 born? (May have been Castlewellan)
May have had a brother named Hugh.
Roberts first wife died leaving 2 children
Sarah? Quinn abt.1843
Alexander Quinn abt.1840
9 sons born in Belfast
Robert 1864-65 Little York St
Robert James 1866
John 1876 wed Margaret Pollard
All Quinns known to be RC and lived around the Docks, Sailorstown.
Some names maybe mixed up between Robert and Margarets children but they were William, Elizabeth & Margaret.
Other names married into the line are McGregor, Gilchrist, Brennans (Belfast org.Kilkenny), Monaghans (Belfast org. Co Monaghan?), Duff, Leckey, Smith and others.
I have more information if needed.
