Surnames: Trimble
My great grandfather's name was Alexander Trimble born in 1872 in Armagh, Ireland. His parents names were David and Jane. He had six brothers and four sisters. Most of them immigrated from Ireland to NYC.

Is there anyone out there related to me??

There are 3 Trimble in the British telephone book for
Armagh, good address and postal codes. Might be worth writing to.

I am related to Alexander Trimble, he was my great-grandfather too!
My grandmother was Ruth McDonald, nee Trimble, his daughter.
I'm just getting started on the geneaology. I did visit County Armagh and the Trimble headstone in the Presbyterian church there but then fell down on the job of learning more of the family.
I look forward to hearing more how we're related!

Hello Cousin!

My grandmother was Edith Barry. So glad to hear from you. Here is my personal email account: I would love to visit County Armagh one of these days. Have you checked out my tree? There is a lot of information on it.

I got carried away as you will see, so Happy Christmas to you all
so the family including Jane the mother and nine children emigrated the year after the 1890 probate for the David Trimble estate was issued to Jane
1890 wills at PRONI Belfast
Letters of Administration of the personal estate of David Trimble late of Lurgaross County Armagh Farmer who died 20 March 1890 at same place were granted at Armagh to Jane Trimble of Lurgaross the Widow. Note Lurgagross is one spelling for the townland in the civil parish of Loughgilly Co Armagh
the Immigration record 1891 New York City, New York, United States
included Jane the mother, were there others who stayed?
Jane Trimble Female 40 1851 Ireland Celtic
James Trimble Male 21 1870 Ireland Celtic
Mary Trimble Female 20 1871 Ireland Celtic [1870]
Alexander Trimble Male 18 1873 Ireland Celtic [1872]
Joseph Trimble Male 16 1875 Ireland Celtic [1873]

George Trimble Male 11 1880 Ireland Celtic
Robert Trimble Male 9 1882 Ireland Celtic
Sarah J Trimble Female 7 1884 Ireland Celtic
Annie P Trimble Female 6 1885 Ireland Celtic
the date inside the bracket are the birth dates I started to find in

from familysearch a David William Trimble b 1876 Lurgross appears to be missing, then I also noticed another David Trimble b 1866 is missing. The Lurgross now spelt Lurgyross
is a splendid clue

The above david could be the named David the father or his father of the same name
So I think I have got you back to 1834

family trees that include Trimble has 41 entries for Trimble in members trees you need to join to look up tree . However there are no David or Alexander listed
the oldest four entries before 1861 include
Sarah Trimble 1860 County Armagh ... No Harold
Robert Trimble 1858 Co. Armagh, Northern... No Margaretha
William Trimble 1858 County Armagh ... No Harold
Robert Trimble 1841 County Armagh ... No Catherine

Griffiths valuation for detail look up inc maps which includes dates and maps etc
Griffiths valuation for quick index at as below
Trimble David Altnamackan Newtownhamilton Armagh
but no sign of David of Lurgyross
so I tried the valuation continuation booksPRONI and he is there. strange his name is not crossed out in 1890

has David Trimble plot number 3 with house offices and land 13 acres paying £15pa

has David Trimble plot number 3 with house offices and land 13 acres paying £15pa
VAL/12/B/10/34C (1894 - 1904)
plot number 3 has John Kilpatrick no mention of change
recheck he is in the indexs as David Tremble

Lurgyross borders the following other townlands:
• Ballylane to the west
• Crunagh to the east
• Drumgane to the north
Lisdrumchor Upper to the south
plot 3 is on the both sides of the road the Mowhan road, between Crunagh Rd and southwards Ballylane road a Spring Hill house up high on a hill has a drive to the right. the entrance towhaT I think is Plot 3 is visisble with some historica bld like a forge on the rhs of the road on modern google at street scene magnification try,-6.510561,3a,75y,6...

Hello Cousin Doreen!
I remember hearing Aunt Edith's name mentioned while growing up.
I will definitely check out your tree! I have an aunt and uncle still living up in NYC who would have been Edith's niece and nephew, I believe. My uncle has a bunch of old pictures we've been urging him to scan and share, and they may have pics of Edith in them. I'll put pressure on. I also need to talk to them in depth now that I've started on this as my aunt in particular is interested in family history.
My email is

Great to meet you, and I hope you're having a wonderful holiday season!

Hi Jim, Thank you so much for this additional information!! I'm thrilled to see so much of info that I didn't seem to be able to get into, and of course the history of the town names too. I was actually near some of these locales when I visited Northern Ireland a few years ago but the trip was a visit with friends so I wasn't able to go into depth. I did find a Trimble headstone in Newry, I think. I'm hoping to go back sometime and explore much more!

I hope you're having Happy Holidays there!
