I'm looking to try and find out information about a missing branch in my family tree...
Matthew Williamson born around 1850/51 ish whilst in the (Royal Navy?) jumped ship in Monte Video sometime between 1880 and 1882.
Matthew was born in Ballymena to William Williamson and Margaret (nee Cuthbert, nee Carson)
He had a sister Sarah (1853-1936) and brother Robert (1858c-1936) who named two sons for him.
Family gossip suggests that Matthew turned up back in Ballymena in the 30's/40's trying to track down his family and was at this point living in Brazil with a Daughter. Unfortunatley the remaining family were now in Portadown and did not manage to meet him before he left again.
I realise this is a ridiculously long shot but thought would post incase it sets any bells ringing for someone.
