Looking for LILLEY connections in Larne........

Post by Anonymous » 14 Oct 2004, 17:03

Hello, I have the following LILLEY in my family tree:

[color=blue][b]Alexander Lilley, Born 1889 in Town Street, Larne[/b][/color]

but have had no luck in tracing further back (eg his parents).

If anyone has any links to this Lilley on their family line I would love to hear from you.

Thanks for looking :) .

After my first post above, I searched a bit more under the other board subjects (great site by the way ) and found the following entry:


1901 North Antrim Census
Townland:Cubbindall
Archibald Lilley (head of house)
8 (persons in house)


Not sure if Cubbindall was part of Larne but if yes, I am wondering now if this is the father of Alexander. I know that Alexander had a grandson named Archie.

Again, if anyone has further info it would be much appreciated.

Thanks :) .

Oops, now discovered that 'Cubindall' was a townland in Ballymoney so maybe no connection to my Lilley after all.

Further update:

Now believe Alexander's father was also 'Alexander' and that his mother was 'Anne June (don't know surname)'. I realise this probably rules out the possible connection to 'Archibald' in my earlier post (although I suppose there still could be a family connection)

Again, longshot, but if anyone has anything on these names in or around Larne area, it would be much appreciated.

Thanks, again, in advance.

Another little bit of info. Believe Alexander (1889) had a sister Mary and possibly one caled 'Celine'. The latter may have gone to Australia at some point.

Update:

sister's name was Selena and she went to America.....found a marriage entry for her in Manhattan, New York in 1907 to an Alexander Blair (not sure if he was also from Ireland).

More updates:

Street name above should be Pound Street not Town Street.

Also, now believe that Ann Jane (not June) was also a Lilley before she married Alexander senior (their son Alexander's birth certificate states Mother: Ann Jane Lilley formerly Lilley - not sure if this means she had previously been married to another Lilley or if she was born a Lilley).

Interestingly, the certificate shows that a Mary Blair was present at the birth ( Alexander's sister, Selena, later married a Blair - see above).


So, still looking for any other info/links on/to these names.

:)

Hi
There's no Lilley/Lilly mentioned in Slater's 1881 directory for
Larne. Also, none by that name in the 1862 Griffiths Valuation
for Larne but there were numerous Lilleys in nearby parishes to
Larne.

I don't know if you have this info on Selena Lilley so I'll list it.
She arrived New York 19 June 1907 on the SS Astoria and she
was going to meet friend Alex Blair of 313 West Street, Wilmington,
Delaware. Selena's last residence listed as Belfast.

The April 1910 census for Wilmington shows Blairs living on West St.
Blair, Alexander, 27, born Ireland, parents born Ireland. Immigrated
1903, machinist for railroad.
Se???a, 22, born Ire, imm 1907
Martha M, 2, born Delaware
John A. 8/12 , b. Delaware

January 1920 Census Camden, New Jersey
Blair, Alexander, 36, b. Ire, foreman at shipyard, Im 1903, Nat. 1910
, Selena, 30, imm 1907
, Madge, 11
, Allen, 10

Looks like the family took a trip back to Europe in 1922 and they
returned to NY 6 Oct 1922 from Liverpool. The family was listed as
Alexander Blair, 40, res- 610 Pine Street, Camden, NJ
Selina Blair, 35,
Madge Blair, 14, born 15 May 1908
Alan Blair, born 15 Nov 1913

Looks like the John A Blair born 1909 must have died young.
Do you have the info from the 1930 census ?

Rick Hutton
descended from Blairs of Glynn parish, just south of Larne

Hello and belated thanks for taking the trouble to post.

Another kind person found quite a bit about Selena (Lilley) Blair for me and I will cross reference your findings with their's. No, I have not seen the 1930 American Census.

I strongly believe my 'Lilley' line probably moved to Larne late 1870's/early 1880's. I know my grandfather was born at Pound Street, Larne, in 1889 and was also led to believe that some of the family continued to live there beyond 1900. I knew his sister Mary married a William Thompson and continued to live in Larne and also now know that the Nancy Ann Lilley (his eldest sister) I was aware of was probably known as Agnes and that she married a 'Workman' and also continued to live in Larne. So, when I finally got a chance to search the 1901 Census recently , you can imagine my disapointment when I didn't find them in Pound Street - albeit there was an Andrew and Sarah Lilley in Pound Street with their children.

So, yet again, anyoe else with any possible info on the 'Lilley's', please do post.

:D ....have found where the Lilley's were before Larne.

It seems they lived in Tamybuck townland in the Civil Parish of Racavan at least in 1876 and probably before. I will leave this part of post here for the post-1878ish stuff and goadd a thread on the Ballymena board in hope that I can get pre-1876 info.
