Mc Kinnell Family On Bourton Street In Mid 1950's - a Memory of Belfast.

Does anyone remember or know someone that might remember the McKinnell family who lived on Bourton Street in the mid 1950's. The property they lived at may have been a Blacksmith's I think. I am producing an extended family tree and would like to put a little history to the families I research. The McKinnell family consisted of James & Sarah McKinnell (nee Bamford) and their children. It is the McKinnell children I am researching. I know what happened to most of them but am trying to ascertain exactly when two of the children, Violet & Sarah came to England - they would have been about 17 or 18 years old at the time. I know that Violet got married in Margate, Kent and Sarah got married Blackpool, both in 1958 but I would like to know how long they had been in England and what was their reasons for leaving Belfast. I do know that both Violet and Sarah then emigrated to the USA and have now both passed away.
