It seems likely that William Cree (farmer in Lisburn) was the father of James Cree and Alexander Cree.1 William Cree was born in 1819 or 1820.2 He was the son of William Cree (farmer in Lisburn).

His daughter Jane Cree was born on 15 March 1839 in Lisburn, County Antrim, Ireland.3

William Cree married Jane Willis in May 1839 in 1st Presbyterian Church, Lisburn, County Antrrim, Ireland. Witnesses were John Cree and S. Keith. Jane's surname is not clear and could be Wily, Willy or Willis. Willis is the most likely as it was a known surname in this congregation at the time. (Ancestry has it as "Ball.")4,5

His son John Cree was born on 15 February 1840 in Lisburn, County Antrim.6

His daughter Agnes Cree was born on 27 April 1843 in Lisburn, County Antrim.6

His son William Cree was born between 1847 and 1849 in County Down, Ireland.7,8,9

His son George Cree was born between 1849 and 1851 in Hill Hall townland, Drumbeg, County Antrim, Ireland.9,10,11

His daughter Mary Cree was born in 1850.12

William Cree was a weaver in August 1870 in Lambeg, County Antrim, Ireland.13

William Cree died on 17 July 1880 in Lisburn, County Antrim.14

  9. [S419] Website, Ulster Star (Lisburn News) 30 March 2009 http://www.lisburntoday.co.uk/news/lisburn-news/…, A LOCAL man has published a remarkable book of poems he has written over the past six decades which record a 'History of Lisburn in Rhyme'.
    84-year-old Don Savage, who describes himself as a 'simple rhymester', has published 'A Sate in the Park', a collection of beautiful poems ranging from the amusing to the thought-provoking with some sad and nearly all focusing on his favourite subjects - family, football and cricket.
    Remarkably, the book is not for sale and and Don is handing out copies to family and friends.
    Don, who lives in Barley Hill, was born in Wesley Street in 1925 and attended nearby William Foote Mem PES.
    He started working at Harland and Woolf in September 1939, the fifth day of the Second World War, and retired in 1986. He married his first wife Olive in 1946 and they had four children, two were stillborn and another Susan, died at the age of five. Their only surviving daughter was Evelyn.
    His wife died in 1976 and two years later he married was again, to Elizabeth McKenna, who already had three daughters Alison, and twins Denise and Julie Steele and granddaughter Nikola Steele. He also has a great granddaughter, 'Princess' Olivia, who is just one year old.
    Don, who was a founder member of Wesley FC in 1956, regards himself as a mediocre junior footballer and played for Sandymount from 1948-1950 and McQuiston Red from 1950-1956. He was Honorary Secretary for Wesley for 17 years and a Secretary for the Lisburn Amateur League for ten years and a member of Lisburn Cricket Club.
    He has written poetry for most of his life - and inspired by his idol Thomas Moore. His favourite poem, about his favourite subject, Cricket, is called 'Sate in the Park', which also gives the book its title.
    "I love cricket and have been well presented within the cricket fraternity," he said.
    Don's poem was first published in the Ulster Cricketer. His work was praised at an AGM by a former Mayor and he got a good reception from all who attended. Don, who only writes for the love of poetry, never expected to see his work in print.
    "I just wanted to have my pieces published as a book at some stage," he said. "I have written one-off pieces for my family who are very important to me. I have lots of poems but they will not get published, this is a one-off. This was just something that I always wanted to do."
    Some of his other pieces include Pity the Old Man, Ode to a Broken Rib, Death of Glory, Tribute to a Sportsman, Wesley and the Legend of Princess Olivia's Birthday.

    He has written poetry for most of his life - and inspired by his idol Thomas Moore. His favourite poem, about his favourite subject, Cricket, is called 'Sate in the Park', which also gives the book its title.
    "I love cricket and have been well presented within the cricket fraternity," he said.
    Don's poem was first published in the Ulster Cricketer. His work was praised at an AGM by a former Mayor and he got a good reception from all who attended. Don, who only writes for the love of poetry, never expected to see his work in print.
    "I just wanted to have my pieces published as a book at some stage," he said. "I have written one-off pieces for my family who are very important to me. I have lots of poems but they will not get published, this is a one-off. This was just something that I always wanted to do."
    Some of his other pieces include Pity the Old Man, Ode to a Broken Rib, Death of Glory, Tribute to a Sportsman, Wesley and the Legend of Princess Olivia's Birthday.
