TURNER of Belfast
I am searching for info on the TURNER family who resided at:- East Bread Street, Belfast and Creagh and Castlereagh Rd Belfast and UK mainland.
They used to visit us at 36 Willow Drive, Coleraine when we were younger and the last visit was around November 1993.
The names are TOMMY (father deceased) META (mother) HILDA, MAUREEN, VIOLET, PAMELA (daughters)and ROBERT, TOM, LAWRENCE (sons)also
Lesley Crawford and son (brittlebone disease)who has a granny in NEWTOWNARDS called HILDA (nee TURNER).
Maureen Turner, when younger, visited my uncle Bob (ROBERT J HILLIS) when he was ill in Australia and died on homeward journey via tramp steamer (name unknown)and was buried at sea. He had set sail for Oz on 26 June 1950 aged 26years on the P.&O.Liner "S.S. RANCHI".He married in Oz to Ellen and had two daughters, Sue and Ellen (I think?)
He owned a sheep farm when he was younger. They had live in Adelaide, Melbourne, Queenland and Perth. A pastor helped them for three days to reach the coast by car to come home as he was gravely ill.
All help would be warmly appreciated.
Kindest regards from the North Coast of the Emerald Isle.
