This bible is with Clive Rowland Torrens. It is a bible in 3 volumes. All I have is an extract as below. The last known location of the bible was at Braidujle house near Lisburne, Ulster. A reward would be made for its return.
Transcription of 'Extracts from family bible at Braidujle, 25 June 1963'. Braidujle is the name of the family house at Drumbo (Co. Down). There are photographs of Braidujle house available.
The Bible entries were copied by R G Torrens. This copy was then transcribed to computer file.
