              The first and second Presbyterian congregations of Belfast, in Rosemary Street, owned a collection of palls, cloaks and hats which were hired out for funerals. They were used by most of the better-off inhabitants of Belfast, regardless of religion, and many of the gentry, clergy ...and substantial farmers in the surrounding countryside. This register, which covers the years 1712 to 1736, is a record of the hiring of this funeral gear for about 2,000 funerals which took place in the town, and as far afield as Counties Londonderry and Tyrone. In this period both the population and trade of Belfast were growing rapidly and the town was well established as the social and economic centre of Ulster. Much of the original register has been printed here together with an index of names, making it immediately accessible for research. To this has been added a series of biographical notes on many of the merchants, gentry, clergy and tradesmen whose funerals are noted. The register is the single most important genealogical source for Belfast in this period but this book will fascinate anyone with an interest in local history. Finally, the transcript retains the phonetic spelling of the original enabling, us to hear the authentic voice of eighteenth century Belfast.

              History of the Irish Parliament 1692-1800
               

              History of the Irish Parliament 1692-1800 (Hardback, illustrated edition)

              Format: Six Volumes (slipcased in pairs) Sold only as set. The Parliament which sat in Dublin from 1692-1800 was the last Irish elected assembly to represent the whole of the island. The principal issues to emerge during the time of the Irish Parliament--the Penal Code, legislati...ve independence, the 1798 rebellion and the passing of the Act of Union of 1800--were not only crucial in themselves but continue to influence our understanding of Irish history over the last 300 years. The Parliament played a vital role in developing the nature and character of 18th-century Irish society. Among the firsts it can claim are the Newry Canal, the first commercial waterway in the British Isles, and the first maternity hospital, the Rotunda in Dublin, in 1745. Its development of the roads network, fairs and markets, education, banking and commerce and, most crucially perhaps, the linen industry, created by 1800 a vibrant and expanding economy and population. It is entirely fitting that the recent bicentenary of the Act of Union should be marked by the eagerly awaited availability of History of the Irish Parliament 1692-1800, the outcome of decades of dedicated research. The information amassed will be presented in a format that will make this invaluable reference work accessible to academic and local historians and genealogists alike. This Publication Includes: Surveys and Statutes volume which classifies the statutes relating to the Constitution, education, local government, law and order, Parliament, religion, manufacturing and employment and, of course, the land. (1 volume). Constituency Histories of the 300 parliamentary county, borough and university seats. (1 volume). Biographical Studiesof the 2,300 MPs who sat 1692-1800, Family names and connection, their residences, titles, marriage, pensions, careers and voting records are all meticulously recorded and presented (4 volumes).

              Historians have studied Anglo-Scottish and Anglo-Irish relations extensively, but Scottish-Irish relations have been largely neglected. This book attempts to fill that gap, and provides a comprehensive study of the Scottish Army in Ireland in the 17th century.

              Researching Scots-Irish Ancestors: The Essential Genealogical Guide to Early Modern Ulster
               

              Researching Scots-Irish Ancestors: The Essential Genealogical Guide to Early Modern Ulster (EPUB ebook)

              By Roulston, William J.

              One of the greatest frustrations for generations of genealogical researchers has been that reliable guidance on sources for perhaps the most critical period in the establishment of their family's links with Ulster, the period up to 1800, has proved to be so elusive. Not any more.... This book can claim to be the first comprehensive guide for family historians searching for ancestors in seventeenth- and eighteenth-century Ulster. Whether their ancestors are of English, Scottish or Gaelic Irish origin, it will be of enormous value to anyone wishing to conduct research in Ulster prior to 1800. A comprehensive range of sources from the period 1600-1800 are identified and explained in very clear terms. Information on the whereabouts of these records and how they may be accessed is also provided. Equally important, there is guidance on how effectively they might be used. The appendices to the book include a full listing of pre-1800 church records for Ulster; a detailed description of nearly 250 collections of seventeenth- and eighteenth-century estate papers; and a summary breakdown of the sources available from this period for each parish in Ulster.

              The Call of the North: A History of the Sisters of Mercy, Down and Connor Diocese, Ireland
               

              The Call of the North: A History of the Sisters of Mercy, Down and Connor Diocese, Ireland (EPUB ebook)

              By Duddy, Marie

              The Sisters of Mercy arrived in Belfast from Dublin in 1854 at a time when, in the wake of the devastating Famine, the town's industrial growth was beginning to present the range of social problems that would become all-too-common. From the outset, the Sisters threw themselves i...nto the educational and social work for which they would soon become renowned. They concerned themselves primarily with the care of females, particularly their education as a means of helping them escape from overpowering poverty. Thousands of children and young people have looked back in later life with gratitude at the education they received in the 'Mercy Convent Schools'. The widely-renowned and highly regarded Mater Infirmorum Hospital, Belfast remains a flagship monument to the work of the Mercy Sisters in the field of nursing and medical care. From their arrival, the Sisters became fully involved in the Works of Mercy in Down and Connor Diocese and, in later years, in the missions in Nigeria and Iceland. The apostolates of the Sisters were in education, in all its aspects, in nursing and in all forms of social work. From the 1960s onwards, the impact of the Second Vatican Council was felt throughout the Catholic world and as a consequence renewal and developments took place in the Mercy Congregation. From the autonomous diocesan units that were characteristic of the original Mercy structures, the congregation has now become global in perspective. In 1994, the Down and Connor Mercy communities became members of the Mercy Ireland Union, now part of a wider international sisterhood which nobly and often heroically continues the Works of Mercy wherever their presence is needed. The recent sesquicentenary in 2004 was a timely opportunity to recognise and pay due homage to the enormous significance of the social and counselling role of these 'walking nuns' over the last 150 years.

              Elm Park 1626-1954: Country House to Preparatory School (EPUB ebook)

              By Barden, Sean

              This beautifully illustrated book by Sean Barden draws on material collated by the ''old boys'' of the school. It is much more than simply a chronicle of the school, however, as the history of Elm Park and the families associated with it are covered from the early seventeenth cen...tury through to the beginning of the twentieth.
