    Notes 
    • Jane was a Tailor/Seamstress/Dressmaker and owned her own business in Larne. She sold her business to help finance the family move to Australia. The family met up with her brother James and his wife Annie and family in South Africa during the trip to Australia 1923.

      The Ulster Covenant opposed the Westminster Parliament's Home Rule Bill for Ireland. It was signed on 28 Sep 1912 by the following members of the Russell family:
      Jane Roy of Coronation Terrace
      Margaret Russell of 1 Coronation Terrace, suggesting that this was the mother, Margaret née Whiteford, since the previous year's census return has her, daughter Jane and grandson Samuel living together. It was signed with an X but this is not necessarily indicative of illiteracy. (There was also Margaret, a sister of Jane's, born about 1873)
      Among the many Samuel Russell's was one living at 1 Bank Road, Larne (=1 Coronation Tce). (Jane's father? - but why was he not in the previous year's census?)
      Note that Coronation Terrace was renamed Bank Road at some point. 1 Coronation Terrace became 1 Bank Road and is 50 Bank Road today.
