I have found most of my ancestors in Newtownards but there is one that I can't find anything about,please can someone help.
Easter(Esther) McCafferty was born in 1874 to Anna McCaffertty.The year before Anna had a son,William James and in 1876 she had another daughter,Mary.In 1877 she married Thomas Gunning and they moved to Glasgow.In the 1881 census there are 4 people,no Easter. I have tried to find out what happened to her but without success.Any ideas?

Think the age is out.

Date of death was 31.1.1880. You can view the original certificate on-line on the GRONI website, using the “search registrations” option:

You will need to open an account and buy some credits. It costs £2.50 (sterling) to a view a certificate.

Thank you both for going to the trouble of looking up Easter's death.As you both say the age is wrong,if she died in 1880 aged 18 she would have been born in 1862 and Anna was born abt 1856.
I will try PRONI again to see if they have anything.I've thought that maybe she wasn't Thomas' and he refused to take her when he left for Glasgow so she was adopted by someone.Her name was after Anna's mum who was Esther McCafferty nee Hollinger whereas William James was for his grandad,William and great grandad,James.Mary was for her gran,Mary Snodden
If she was adopted there aren't any records and her name would have been changed.
