Looking for Victorian descendants of this irish born couple
Ceangal has been a Family Tree Circles member since Jul 2013.
Would this be the marriage of your John and Ellen.
Groom: John HALLORAN.
Birth place: Given as Tipperary.
Bride: Ellen MAHER.
Birth place: Given as Kilkenny.
Year married: 1867.
Place: Victoria, Australia.
Ref: Registry of marriages, Victoria. Reg #3787.
Yes that is it - I am the grand daughter of one of their sons - Richard. We now live in Western Australia but I don't know anyone from this family living in Victoria or other eastern states. We have no photographs of either John or Ellen and would love to find out if one of Richards siblings families have anything.
To start with I'm not connected to this family.
I'm just trying to give you a helping hand and wanted to confirm the correct John and Ellen as you did not mention when and where they were married, and did not include Ellen's maiden name. Having confirmed the parents names and marriage details it should improve your chances of a reply from other members connected to this family line.
Thanks for that - next mission is to track down the siblings and their families.
Had a play in the records during the day and have put a few details together on the family line of John and Ellen for you. It does not tell you much but hope it will give you a kick start with your research. I have only looked at the Victorian records to date and if I pick up any more details will let you know.
Hope this helps for now.
Sorry, the journal title is: HALLORAN John married Ellen MAHER 1867.
It's been a long day.
Thank you - strangely enough we have some good records of the irish connections and a cousin is travelling there later this month. I am hoping to get some time to search the Victorian records....somebody mus have a photograph somewhere, although I suspect the family would have been quite poor. We are also not sure if John and Ellen were both convicts.
