Family looks to have been Church of Ireland (certainly up to 1901). They had 8 children, 7 of whom were alive in 1911. Suspect Wm junior may have been born before the start of statutory registration (1864). For births between 1856 and 31.12.1863 you will probably need to search church baptism records. Bailieborough Church of Ireland baptism records start in 1824. Copy in PRONI in Belfast. They may not be on-line anywhere though.

Family in 1901 census:

and in 1911:

Births for son John 1877 and daughter Jane 1872 both in Greyabbey with father as sailor or sea-capt and mother as Sarah so 'tailor' is probably sailor in post #1.

So age in shipping record is not correct. William born abt 1860.

Burial details taken from the original cemetery card index now in possession of local council.
