Need a few more details for Mary.
Approximate year of birth and parents names will speed up record searches, and don't forget to mention the details you require.

Come back soon.

Martin Linnane, well known in Albury as " Martin the well sinker," was killed by a fall from his horse in September or October 1858. Would that be the Martin you seek?

Thomas BATH opened the Ballarat Hotel in 1853. It was the first licensed hotel in Ballarat.

Hi Janilye,
my related Martin Linnane was buried in 1877 at Ballarat cemetery. Occupation was agricultural labourer but like all good Irishmen,kicked himself up and used Farmer on official documents.
Will look into Thomas Bath for marriage details,
cheers !!

Thank you,throws a different angle ,but was he born Clare Ireland OR Sth Australia ?
I have visited the cemetery and in the area he is interred there are no headstones,presumably pauper's graves.
His other daughter Bridget was illiterate but spelt her name Lennane on the marriage register,
cheers !!

Groom: Thomas PARRY.
Born: London.

Bride: Bridget LENANE.
Birth place: Galway.

Year married: 1867.
Place: Victoria.
Ref: Registry of Marriages, Victoria. Reg. #2890.

Bridget's maiden name was also recorded as LENNANE and LANNON in the Victorian records. Several spelling variations for the name appear in the records and this makes record searches time consuming.

I expect Martin was born in Clare, Ireland.

say hello to my GX2 Grandparents,
cheers !!

Located a marriage and death that may be of interest to you. I'm unable to confirm if this Mary is Bridget's sister but it's very possible going by the spelling variations of her maiden name appearing in the records.


Groom: Owen JONES.
Birth place: Anglesea.
Bride: Mary LENORD.
Birth place: Clare.
Year married: 1870.
Place: Victoria.
Ref: Registry of Marriages, Victoria, Reg. #2305.

Owen and Mary had nine children in Victoria between 1871 and 1887. In the birth and death records for the children Mary's maiden name was recorded as


Name: Mary JONES.
Died: 1942 Canterbury district, New South Wales.
Father: Martin.
Mother: Ann.
Ref: Registry of Deaths, New South Wales.

Hope this is of some help.

Thank you,
Extremely unlikely the person in the death record is my relation because she was recorded on passenger lists in 1853 as being 20 years of age.Her
place of birth is recorded as Kinvarra,Galway on the same list and there are several families of Linnanes( etc ) recorded in that town/parish.
But I will follow up the marriage as she may have met Owen on the Ballarat goldfields,not an unrealistic distance from Anglesea.
cheers !!

Thanks Tonkin,
the names of my GX4 grandparents were a great help but still to verify marriage to Owen Jones,
Cheers !! Chatham

Sorry CHATHAM I missed Mary's birth year of 1833.
If this Owen JONES and Mary had their last child in 1887 it means Mary would have been about 54 years old when she gave birth, so the chances are it's not the Mary your looking for.
