William Simpson ( Belfast ) Looking for my Ulster origins.
I am the Grand-daughter of William Simpson.
William married my grandmother Elizabeth McQuillan,
29th April 1918 in Dundalk, Co Louth.
On their marriage certificate my GGrandfather is named
as James Simpson of Belfast. The two witnesses are Robert
McQuillan and Maggie Hoey. After they were married my
grandparents lived in Belfast, althougth my Grandmother
is known to have returned to Dundalk where my mother
Winifred was born May 1930. Sadly my mother had only
one memory of her father, William visited her in Dundalk
in 1936 when she would have been six years old.
If anyone can enlighten me in anyway as regards my grandfather,
I would be delighted. I suspect that my Mother may have
had other siblings, if not I would still be happy to
know that I may have distant cousins out there.
Many Thanks in Anticipation
