    Notes 
    • Although Albert had been a joiner in the Shipyards he moved to Dublin with the family and his father-in-law Robert McDowell around 1915 to start a joinery business. From there he moved to Castlecomer Co.Kilkenny to become a manager in the anthraacite mines. Ormonde was born here in 1921. Albert was apparently disliked because he was a Protestant from the north and was kidnapped for a few days by the IRA. When released the family moved back to Belfast and were there when Stewart was born in 1925 (partition of Ireland took place in 1922).
      After his return to the north Albert was later appointed as Clerk of Works in Belfast, hence the title civil servant in his will. According to my father he collapsed in the City Hall on the day he started work there and died soon after, just a few weeks after his wife Margaret. [4]
