Surnames: Strain/Kennedy
I am searching for information on my Grandfather & Grandmother who were originally from Donaghadee but moved to Bangor where they lived for many years until their deaths around 1976/77. My grandfather was David Strain who was a Master Baker and at one time had his own shop in Donaghadee. My grandmother was Isabella Kennedy and I think her mother's name was Anne Tollerton. They had children called Georgina, David, Marie, Annie and Dorothy. My mother is Annie and met my father when she lived in Downpatrick and he was doing his national service at Bishops Court. They moved to Scotland in 1948.
