    Handwriting help please

    Can anyone decipher the name of the church for the 4 marriages on this page, plus the occupation of George Thompson, the last entry on the page.
    Also confirm names of witnesses on last entry - I read as Edward Branigan and James Fielding.

    Thanks,
    Christine

      I'm pretty sure it's hall at the end. Might be Linenhall Street?

          Its prebyterian

          agree with glassblower and the witness names although Fielding has been written very quickly and looks a bit odd I still feel its Fielding.

          Edit: Interesting piece about the minister Robert Knox

            Thanks all. Glassblower is reasonably clear once somebody points it out!
            Thanks for confirmation of Linenhall, Kat.
            I've been to the Linen Hall library in Belfast - lovely building, although the buildings around Donegall Square have changed a lot (not always for the better) over the years. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linen_Hall_Library
