The Townlands of Holywood Civil Parish

The townlands in Holywood Parish (Ard Mhic Nasca) are those taken from Holywood Parish on Logainm.ie and validated against townlands on Townlands.ie, PlacenamesNI.org where appropriate, Griffiths valuations data and the 1901 and 1911 censuses. A link is provided in the notes for the 1901 and 1911 census. Please note that these may not always work if the townland was not available on the census in question. The census site may also substitute a similar name so be prepared for unexpected results!
If the townland has a category it will be linked in the table below. If there is no link and you need the category please contact David to get the category created or put in a request for the category to be created. Alternatively, if you feel condifent to do so, see Townland Category Information Boxes below for how to create them yourself.

Excluded Townland

Sydenham Intake. Shown on Placenames NI and Townlands.ie but is recently reclaimed land and only used for commercial purposes. It has no likelyhood of being a place of birth, marriage or death registration on WikiTree.
Victoria Park on the east bank of the Conn's Water is named from Queen Victoria and was opened as a public park on 15 September 1906 by Alderman John McCormick - some 52 years after a park was first proposed in that area of Belfast. It is first designated a townland in the 1901 Census and is partly in the neighbouring parish of Knockbreda. It is based on land reclaimed from the mudflats of the Connswater estuary.
