My grandparents Mary (nee Gallery) and Joseph Collins emigrated to New Zealand in 1926 with their chlldren Josey, Harold, Winifred (my mother) Gilbert and Margretta. The oldest was 13, the youngest about 2. My mother and aunt Josey remembered Kernan. They lived at 5 Bright Street, 1 Joseph Street and James Street. They went to Seagoe School. If anyone has school photos of the 1923/24 era, I would appreciate perhaps seeing these. They remembered the headmaster of Edenderry school as Mr Lynas. They remembered Jack "Springheel" Banning, Maud and Martha Lappins, Billy Mellum, Sammy McClure. Loney were their neighbours in Bright Street. Billy McClure was my aunt Josey's "boyfriend" at school and Mona Ramsey was my mother Winnie's school friend. Cissy Chambers was a neighbour in Bright Street and there was May, Lilly, Irene, Wellington Chambers. Albert Chambers was a soldier. Mr Chambers was a baker and worked in Belfast, but came home at weekends. My mother was born at 2 Woodhouse Street. I was in Portadown in 2001 and was interviewed by the local paper then and also visited again last year in July 2008. I was given the latest 2008 publication of Edenderry, A Pictorial Past. My grandfather Joseph Collins worked as a watch repairer, bicycle repairs and as a chauffeur. Joseph Collins was born in 1864 to Sarah Collins. Sarah Collins' parents were Joseph Collins and Elizabeth (Magee). Joseph Collins and Elizabeth Magee were married in Milltown, 1853

What a classic website. was so good to see history in pictures which my dad always talks about when he talks about the good ole edenderry days. My dad has a picture of him at school when he attended the old edenderry primary school. He also has fond memories of going over the fields, swimming in the bann river and when he was growing up as a kid when the 2nd world war was happening. Glad to see a website dedicated to an area which has proud memories and images.

Best wishes
Neil

Hello, I have spent the whole evening looking at your website, it is so lovely. I began to look for any family link and became engrossed.
My maternal grandmother was born in Edenderry, ELIZABETH SCOTT 14 JULY 1880, DAUGHTER OF FRANCIS AND SARAH NEE SMITH, SISTER OF CHARLOTTE. ELIZABETH MARRIED PARK RAMSEY IN 1907. My mother Sarah (Sadie) was 1 of their chldren. I noticed some of your lovely old photos, there was a Sally Ramsey in a methodist choir in 1955 and also a Mr G Ramsey in a bible class in 1919, I just wondered if there were any links? Or if anyone new anyrhing about the Scott family. My mothers brother Frank Ramsey, married and Agnes Lyttle, not certain of the spelling, but I also noticed the name Lyttle on your site. Can anyone help?

Thank you
Olwyn Hart
