... Hi there I'm researching the Gilroy linage of my gg grandmother Bridget Gilroy b abt 1854, immigrated to Christchurch NZ with her 3 sisters. They were from Enniskillen Fermmangh,Ireland. My mother knows one married a 'Drum' of which you have in your list Michael Drum-Annie Gilroy. I'm hoping they are one of the same. Another sister married a 'Yeoman',but unsure of the other. Unable to find any shipping records of their arrival. I have found there to be many variations of the spelling of Gilroy, probably due to their broad accent. My gg grandmother married John O'Donnell b 1843 Donegal Ireland.
I'm hoping you may have some info in regards to the Gilroys? I have my gg g/m death certificate. Which shows her correct name as Gilroy rather the Lroy on her marriage certificate.
Regards Jaye Gee

see above for any additions found for the families Jaye asked about ... (on-going)
