Hi Teresa, an ADDENDUM: Back in the 1960's, Maurice SEXTON, of Palmerston North, descendent from Thomas SEXTON/Harriet SWABEY, told me after his journey to Ireland that he had actually traced the Co.Clare SEXTONS back to Co.Wick - from where, apparently, one Cromwell had moved the whole population to Co.Clare for refusing to change from Catholic to Church of Ireland (Anglican). Maurice gave me some photos & a little info (as above) but then died before providing the complete details & as far as possible corroboration. Kind regards, Joe (ka949)

Joe, just picked up up your mail now hmmm....interesting info. We were always told that we were displaced from Limerick by the same Cromwell. i dont have a Harriet Swabey in my line, however I do have a Thomas Sexton.

Hi,
I am the great granddaughter of John Sexton, born 1847 in Miltown Malbay County Clare. He eloped to Hobart in Tasmania with Jane Hogan.
I can find no record of them at all before the Passenger list departing Plymouth on the Pathan in 1884.
Any connection ?
Thanks Jude

Jude, I believe that we possibly are related, although, right now I have no idea how. I come from Miltown Malbay and I have considerable work done on the Sextons. However, I have nothing on a Hogan. Do you know who your John Sexton parents were? My great grandfather was John Sexton but was married to Vaughan. Apparently, all the Sextons were related.
