I am so thrilled my brother found your web site. It has brought back so many happy memories to me. My beloved granny, Agnes McConnell, lived in Belvoir Park till her death in 1967, my uncle Robert lived there until his death in the 1980's? I went over every year to visit my darling granny till I moved to the U.S. in 1964. Is there any information about Belvoir Park available?

This is a great site and a very helpful one for all the Lisburn Expats - giving them a means of staying in touch with their birth place and some of the folks back home. Please ensure to keep it updated as much as possible -some of the photographs and stories are great or maybe I am just being a little nostalgic.

Morrison Joan

From: Ballynahinch Road, Lisburn

Now Living: Costa Mesa, California

Country: U.S.A.

Email: lisnagarvey1@earthlink.net

Our family name was Morrison. My father, James Morrison, was a well-known painting contractor in the Lisburn area. His brother Bertie Morrison lived for years in the Longstone area, his wife Eileen still living on Slemish Way. We lived at 80 Ballynahinch Rd. but would soon have had to move as there were five children. The names of the children were: Elise, Margaret, Joan, Jim and Tom. Our Grandmother Small had a small shop at 1 Quay St., just over the Union Bridge on the way up Bridge Street. Alas, the old house has been torn down and a traffic roundabout put there. All of us except for the youngest boy attended Brownlee School, so we would enjoy any photos of that, especially some from inside the school. My two older sisters went to Wallace High School. My father first emigrated to Flint, Michigan in 1949. He had an accident which resulted in a broken leg. This idleness caused great homesickness, so he returned to Ulster and once again set up his business. Wanderlust once again took over, and in 1953, he returned to the States, this time to Costa Mesa, California where he had relatives nearby. After one year, the family came out to join him. Our mother brought us out by herself, and that is another great story.
