I have been researching the Barnett Family. They lived in a house, Northleigh, Somerton Road. In 1902 the house was (owned?) by Robert and Martha Barnett. Robert was a Grain and Produce Merchant. It is interesting that Somerton Road does not show up in the Belfast Street Directory. In the Fortwilliam Area, there is a House called Northleigh.
