Looking for Brophey, Gunn, Sheridan, Tressiter, Treharne, Meredyth, Yates NSW Australia

Query by meredyth

The convict John Sheridan transported from Ireland on the Larkin to NSW in 1817, was also known as Dublin Jack Sheridan, for whom a reward was posted in the Sydney Gazette of 1826. He was freed by servitude, and appears to have had a son around 1857, William John Sheridan of Singleton NSW, whose daughter Maude Claire married into the Brophey family, free immigrants from Ireland.

Dublin Jack's great great granddaughter Jeanette Brophey married Brian Meredyth, descended from Old King Cole (Rodhri Mawr) and thereafter Sir Richard Meredyth who was a Bishop in Ireland in 1592, having spent 10 years in the Tower of London for treason, for which he was later exonerated by Elizabeth 1. His descendant Charles Augustus Jervis Meredyth was a taxi driver in Sandy Bay, Hobart, when he inherited the title, thus becoming known as the Cabman Baronet.Hence there has been a reunion in Australia of previous enemy factions in Ireland, after over 4 centuries.

Dear Meredyth, Hi. If you click on my username and click on 'contact' you can send me a message under the private messaging system. I would like to invite you electronically via your email address to our family tree online at Geni.

In my research with another distant cousin of mine regarding our CANTWELL forbears and their descendants I'm looking into all the families interconnected, and also helping my cousin research his KENNA ancestors/descendants. That's where the SHERIDAN etc. names come into it. We were always aware of 'Dublin Jack' but didn't have any more information than that. One of Dublin Jack's daughters in law was Johanna (Hanna) KENNA who married William John SHERIDAN in 1877 at Maitland. My connection is two of Johanna KENNA's sisters married two CANTWELL brothers in my own personal family tree.

Incidentally, I have lots of YATES names in my tree from Greta, Maitland, Cessnock and Branxton NSW connected to the KENNAs and DUNNE families.

Best wishes,
