Isabella Cullen & William English

Isabella Cullen & William English

Surnames: Cullen & English
Hi all.
Isabella Cullen: b abt 1840 Armagh; d 1924 Qld,Australia (parents: William & Mary)
Married William English in 1862 Armagh
William: b: 1838 Ireland d 1877 Qld, Australia (parents: John English & Mary).

I have come to a standstill in relation to these two adventurers. I believe they may have left Ireland about 1863'ish but have no birth records for either.

I would love to know more about them!
Many thanks for your assistance!

Birth records for Northern Ireland available from two
resources, both a pay webites. - free to view,pay for record - used to be free to view but no longer

Both birth and marriage records would be Parish records as Civil Registration didn't start till 1864. However, if they were Protestant marriages were recorded from 1845-1875.

In 1864 the Griffith Valuation took place and now used as a census substitute. At this time there are 4 William English listed and 8 John English.

William's in Parish Derrynoose, Lisnadill, Mullaghbrack, Shankill (I think Belfast)

John 6 of 8 in Derrynoose Parish and 2 in Parish Keady

Cullin - 96 - Parish's in common Keady, Mullaghbrack and

You can use the British Telephone book to see how many still live in the area.

I'm not sure people leaving Ireland were adventurers, most left because circumstances required it.

Marriage listed on

a match for 1862 Armagh, Latter Day Saints microfilm
Volumne 1, Pg. 259 #4195894

A marriage record will give you date, place/parish,
and both their father's names.

A birth record gives you date, place/parish, both mother and father's name and mother's maiden name

There were no births from 1864-1875 listed for the parents

A further look to www.familysearch with just parents name

Hi Annette.
Thank you for the trouble you are taking with my query. It is very kind of you.

I have all this information you have offered. John English led a very eventful life - it is just wonderful to read about our ancestors past. I am sure my descendants will think me very boring.

I think I have the "family tree bug".

yes, obsession I think is the word.

There are two persons in the british telephone book for Armagh. You could write letters, most living in Ireland don't get why we do this. The addresses are complete with postal codes,neither address had Kilmore in it. Look for addresses in these areas

Cullen, there are 37 listed in the phone book.

Parish Kilmore and Townlands are in both the Civil Registration District/Poor Law Union of Armagh - located within 12 mi. of named town. Also in the Parish of Clonfeacle and Banbridge.

Another source of the lives your ancestors lived would be books. See under counties on Eneclann or Four Courts Press.

Bye now and good luck. Annette
