Late of Ballyutogue who departed
Does anyone know where Ballyutogue is?
This is my first posting to this list and I am hoping that someone will be
able to assist me in finding an answer.
On my recent trip to Northern Ireland, I was taken to a cemetery outside of
Belfast where I was shown a family plot with three markers. On one of the
markers it listed what I think is a relative.
The memory of William Mulholland
Late of Ballyutogue who departed
This life 2nd Feb 1844
Aged 50 years
My questions are:
Does anyone know where Ballyutogue is? I have searched the Ordinance Survey
map as well as Google.com and found no real reference to the town (other
than Uris' Trinity)
Also, does this name sound familiar to anyone?
Thanks in advance.

Have added a small section of births to my site, but have taken a
different approach. Extracted all births that had Norton as a spouse of
the child's parents. The birth is listed under the surname but the
spouse in this case is always Norton. So far I have only extracted
surnames beginning with letters A to M.
Look under subsection: Odds and Ends
The file is wide and will required scrolling to view, it may take a few
