George Cree. Photograph posted by Diane Quinn
George Cree was born between 1849 and 1851 in Hill Hall townland, Drumbeg, County Antrim, Ireland. (His date of birth was critical to his claim for an old age pension but the evidence is inconsistent.)1,2,3 He was the son of William Cree and Jane Willis.

George Cree married Jane Cree, daughter of Andrew Cree Jr and Jane McGimpsey, on 2 November 1869 in Ballygilbert Presbyterian Church, Bangor, County Down, Ireland. They were first cousins once removed, George's grandfather William Cree being a brother of Jane's father Andrew Cree Jr. George was of full age (over 21) and Jane was a minor (under 21). His father William was a weaver and her father, Andrew Cree, a farmer.4,5

On 2 November 1869 George Cree was living in Knockbreda, Holywood, County Antrim, Ireland. Subsequently George and Jane moved around and had a different address at the birth of almost every one of their children: thus they lived at Ballykeel in 1871, Ballymiscaw in 1873, Castlereagh 1875, Redburn in 1876, Belfast Rd, Holywood in 1878 until at least 1886. I guess shepherding was like that.6,7

His daughter Elizabeth Cree was born on 31 May 1870 in Newtownards Reg Dist, County Down, Ireland.8,9

His son William Cree was born on 6 October 1871 in Ballykeel, Holywood, County Down, Ireland.10,4

His daughter Margaret Cree was born on 24 March 1873 in Ballymiscaw, Dundonald, County Down, Ireland.4,10

His son Andrew Cree was born on 16 June 1875 in Belfast, County Antrim, Ireland.4,11

His daughter Margaret Cree died on 13 July 1875 in Belfast, County Antrim.12

His son George Frederick Valentine Cree was born on 30 August 1876 in Redburn House, Holywood, County Down, Ireland.4

His son John Carsewell Cree was born on 8 June 1878 in Belfast Road, Holywood, County Down, Ireland.4,10 George Cree was a witness at the marriage of John Carswell and Jane McGimpsey on 15 May 1879 in Church of Ireland; Since the bride gave her name as Jane McGimpsey, rather than Jane Cree) this may be a diffent person. However she stated that she was a widow and daughter of James McGimpsey which suggests she was marrying under her maiden name, so it seems likely that she was the same Jane.13

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

His son David Henry Logan Cree was born on 21 March 1881 in Belfast Road, Holywood, County Down.10,4,15

George was a labourer aged 50. His son David was a shoemaker aged 16. Robert was a labourer aged 16.15

On 2 April 1911 George Cree and Jane Cree were living in 3 Ballycullo, Malone, County Antrim, Ireland, along with Margaret Jane Cree and Arthur Cree. George was a farm servant aged 61 and could read but not write. Jane was aged 60. Margaret was a dressmaker aged 24. Arthur was 19 and a tenter. It was recorded that George and Jane had had eleven children of whom ten were still alive. George signed the census return with his "mark" - an X - witnessed by the enumerator.19

  23. [S447] Posting on message board, by John Craig on Cree Family History Network, 4 Nov 2017, "My father told me about visiting George Cree in the 1920s when my father was a boy. He recalled that George worked as a ground keeper for the wealthy McCance family who lived at Larkfield House. He told me that George lived in a picturesque whitewashed cottage at the foot of Black Mountain, where he kept a few pigs and grew vegetables and potatoes."
