Crossle Papers

The Crossle Papers at Libraries NI comprise background and genealogical information on families in the Newry area of Northern Ireland. The information is handwritten and accumulated in notebooks and scrapbooks from the early 1900s. Francis Crossle, and later his son Philip Crossle, compiled the information from old newspapers. The information, gathered in scrapbooks and notebooks, was often supplemented by correspondence with members of the various families detailed within. The notebooks were compiled for personal use rather than for formal research purposes. They contain valuable information on prominent families as well as social and local history - with details such as addresses, family members and occupation information. Information on families throughout Ireland may be found - insofar as it relates to families in the Newry region of Ireland. The work in the Crossle Papers was carried on and added to by T.G.F. Paterson (associated with Armagh County Museum). Some Crossle material may also be found at Armagh County Museum and Queen's University, Belfast.
