Birth
Rather than Castlereagh I think Ballymacarret would also be correct... According to CaptainBeecher on Rootschat, talking about where Ballymacarret is "Your issue here is that Belfast is classed as County Antrim so any reference to anything happening at any time after the 1880s in Ballymacarrett will state it as County Antrim. According to CaptainBeecher on Rootschat Prior to that Ballymacarret was a village in its own right and not part of Belfast. However the county boundary for Antrim/Down is the river Lagan which seperates East Belfast from the rest of the city. Ballymacarrett, although part of Belfast is County Down and its citizens would regard themselves as County Down. The boundaries of Ballymacarrett traditionally would be the railway line, heading east until it meets the river Connswater which provides the east boundary travelling south until it meets the Beersbridge Road heading west onto Castlereagh street and then Mountpottinger Road, which heads north and stops just short of the Bridgend flyover, which then meets the railway and completes the perimiter. The spine of the area is the Newtownards Road. This can be easily viewed from Google maps."
