I am looking for the birth (C1820) and marriage (C1845) of a Daniel CAMBRIDGE, presumably all in Belfast. I have found a possible death match on the Family Search Pilot site, where there is a death recorded for a Daniel CAMBRIDGE in Belfast in 1888, at the age of 77. I shall be following up on that record.

Similarly I have looking for information on his wife, Catherine CAMBRIDGE, nee O'NEIL

I should explain that 'my' Daniel is NOT the Daniel CAMBRIDGE, V.C. born in Carrickfergus C1820 and died 4 June 1882 at 57 Frederick Place, Plumstead, (Woolwich) aged 62 years.

Having said that, I suspect that 'my' Daniel CAMBRIDGE's life span was similar.

'My' Daniel CAMBRIDGE and his wife, Catherine (or Kate) Neil (or O'NEIL) had at least two children:
William (born and/or baptised 1848, Ant, Ireland & died 12 April 1920 in Greenock, Ren, Scotland), and;
Catherine (born and/or baptised 04 May 1854, Belfast, ANT, IRL and died 08 April 1921, Belfast, ANT, IRL). Catherine (born 1854) is my great grandmother.

William's Death Certificate records his parents as:
Daniel CAMBRIDGE Farm Labourer (deceased), and;
Catherine CAMBRIDGE ms O'NEIL (deceased).

I have found Daniel CAMBRIDGE residing at 10 Baker Street, Belfast, ANT, IRL in both the 1877 & 1880 Belfast Street Directories, after which he 'disappears' from the Street Directories. He is not listed in the 1861 Street Directory.

The 1861 Belfast Street Directory has a William CAMBRIDGE, shopman, 36 California Street, who could possibly be Daniel's father.

The Griffiths Valuations for Ireland also show a Daniel CAMBRIDGE in the St. George's Ward Townparks Baker Street Townland, Shankill Parish, Co. Antrim, so I assume he is 'my' Daniel CAMBRIDGE.

The marriage on 04 May 1877 of Daniel's daughter, Catherine CAMBRIDGE at 'Cathedral at St Peter's Square, Belfast' to William McCORMICK, shows her address as 10 Baker Street, Belfast.

There is no record of Daniel & Catherine in either the 1901 or 1911 Census for Ireland.

I have found possible matches on the Roots Ireland website for these people, but they are too numerous and it would therefore be too costly to obtain the documentation.

Has anyone come across these people in their search or can provide me with more information.
