Birthplace of children

The three children are listed as "Belfast" birthplace, while the census location is "Ormeau, County Down". This location is in the south Belfast urban area and is most likely where the children were born.

Anna Rose's age

Anna Rose is given as:

  • "full age" in the 1891 marriage.
  • age 27 in the 1901 census
  • Anne Rose, age 30 in the 1911 census

This is not very helpful in terms of finding a birth record.


Alexander is the person known as H A Crooks of Belfast -- this is known from the funeral clipping of his father. However we have not found any explanation of what the H stands for.
