Just confirming that the 1843 Belfast Directory listed Patrick Magee, Cabinet maker at 69 Lodge Rd. Twenty two Magees are listed including a William who was a coach body maker at 2 Catherine St. Since the occupations are very similar they were possibly related.

thankyou for that information Pat magee was Malcolm Magee's father .Malcolm was a polisher when he married Anna Eid .i know he died in 1853 as i have located his grave but it would be nice to trace possible decendants of the family.Malcolm had two children a boy and a girl and i have just traced his wife and a remarriage and then the trail goes cold again.thanks once again.

Am also researching Magee family in Belfast and would be interested in exchanging information. From my own research, I have found that Magee name in Belfast is one of the oldest Catholic names, with a lot of Patricks, Johns, Josephs and Hughs. There are also Protestant Magees , and the name has been changed to McGee and McKee.
Am having trouble confirming details of Hugh, son of John Magee and Ann? Hugh married Esther Agnew in 1890.
Any and all help would be appreciated.

Also researching Belfast Catholic Magees in same time period, some lower Falls and others on the Down side of Belfast. The names Ephraim (sometimes recorded as Abraham) and Charlotte seem to carry through.

Have purchased many bapt and marriage records trying to pin this family down. Happy to exchange any info I have in the hopes of tying these people together.

The only record I have for this generation with a definite connection to my family is a St Matthew's 1858 bapt cert for an Alice Magee, dau of Abraham Magee and Agnes Smyth, which shows my gf and gm as sponsors, John Sheils and Charlotte Maxwell. Charlotte's mother was Teresa Magee (m Thomas Maxwell).

There is another record which Teresa Maxwell as the sponsor at the 1857 St Patrick's bapt of a Teresa Magee, dau of (illegible) I____ Magee and Agnes Wilson. Found an Isaac Magee in Ballinderry and was wondering if that was what was illegible. Really perplexed about the biblical names for Catholics and suspect they were baptd with different forenames which may be why I'm having such a hard time locating records for them.

Feel this family is connected in some way to the 1851 Census Magee family in Lurgill, Ballinderry, which shows a SHARLET and two EPHRIMs.

Have found evidence of later generations connecting to the names McConville (Ballynafeigh) and Fallo(e)n (Lower Falls).

Happy to help with any questions or lookups, so please don't hesitate to ask. Any help anyone can provide would be greatly appreciated.
