I am looking for any information that anyone may have on my following relatives:

John McGladdery was born in Ballycor in 1823, his father was called John I have no information on his mother though a John McGladdery was married to a Jennet about 1775 in Ballycor and they had a son called John in 1786 in Ballycor. I was wondering if this was the grandparent of John Strange (born 1827) in Ballycor.

John (1827) married Ellen Strange (born 1827 Ballycor) in 1848 in Ballyeaston, Antrim.

They had six children that I am aware of all christened in Ballyeaston.

Thomas John - Baptised 12 Feb 1849
Jane Hay - Baptised 12 Feb 1851 (my great grandmother)
Mary - Baptised 13 Nov 1852
Sarah - Baptised 23 Sep 1854
Margaret Allen - Baptised 10 Dec 1857
Anne - Baptised 28 Jan 1862

Jane Hay Mcgladdery married James Boyd on 04.11.1870 at Ballynure Presbyterian Church. James and his father John were labourers.

Jane and James had three children that I am aware of all born in Ballyclare.

Ellen Jane - 25.11.1870
William John - 12.06.1872 (my grandfather)
Sarah - 06.05.1875

On his son's wedding certificate in 1903 James' occupation is stated as mechanic.

William John Boyd married Elizabeth Kate Sealy on 03.12.1903 at Albertbridge Congregational Church, Knockbreda, Belfast. They had my father William George Boyd on 25.01.1909.

I know that they were tailors and lived in Portallo Street. William John died in 1917 and Elizabeth Kate in the 1941 Belfast Blitz.

I have no information on where Elizabeth came from, on her wedding certificate her father is stated as John dec'd. it does not give her age.

When their son William John came to England in the 1930s he went to his relatives in Bristol so she may have come from Bristol.

William John's sister Ellen married Samuel Stafford Woods in Ballynure Church of Ireland 15.08.1889.

Any information would really be appreciated.
