Brick wall

Postby Annetwoc » Mon Aug 19, 2019 6:52 pm

I’m trying and have been for nearly 10 years to find my 2nd Great grandfather. Name Samuel Calder born around 1815 in Ireland, he was a seaman. Im looking for a birth, wedding or death certificate for him!? Samuel Calder married Eliza Jane Gillespie, (don’t know when), they lived in Belfast Northern Ireland, they had 5 children John, Eliza, Jane, David, and Samuel. they were born in Belfast Ireland. I’m hoping someone can help me please.

Found a few of the childrens' baptisms at Shankill St. Anne's Church of Ireland online at RootsIreland.

Shankill St. Anne's marriages don't appear to have been uploaded yet on that site.
However, 1745-1845 marriages & 1745-1865 burials are available through the Anglican Record Project.

Don't seem to be very many Samuel Calders in Ireland.
Merchant seamen records
Samuel Calder born Strangford, Down, 1816

The record in BT 113 has been indexed with Samuel born 1826, but I have my doubts that it actually says that, and 1816 also ties in better with the other ones.

I notice son, David Calder, says he was born about 1853 according to his 1876 Toxteth, Lancashire marriage record to Sarah Whiteside. Subsequent Garston, Lancashire censuses say he was born in Liverpool.

There was a Samuel (son of John) Celder, Widower & Mariner, who married Margaret Doherty in 1856 in the Liverpool Church of England according to FindMyPast. He may be the same Samuel Calder who died in Liverpool in 1868 age 50.

I also noticed in a few of his childrens' baptisms he and his wife went by Samuel, John, Elizabeth, Jane, and Eliza Jane.

The South London Press of Saturday 19 Sept 1868 carried an article about an inquest into his death which was held 'on Saturday'. He was a Seaman on board the Belfast steamer Electric and on the Friday he fell down suddenly on the forecastle deck and died almost immediately. According to the report he suffered with fits.

A similar article was in the Liverpool Daily Post on Monday 14 Sept 1868, so presumably he died Friday 11 Sep and the inquest was Saturday 12th.
