O'Donnells to Victoria on the MARCO POLO 1850's and 60's

MARCO POLO was used alot and I can see the dates that the ship arrvived in Victoria, Australia. I have access to the many other ship's names and the O'Donnells that sailed on them. If you need any info drop me a line.

The following O'Donnell individuals sailed on the Marco Polo and arrived in Victoria in the 1850's and 60's.

Thomas O'Donnell January 1854 aged 28

Jane O'Donnell February 1856 aged 31

John O'Donnell July 1858 aged 20

John O'Donnell January 1861 aged 21

Michael O'Donnell October 1864 aged 20

Ellen O'Donnell October 1864 aged 22

Thomas O'Donnell March 1862 aged 26

You would expect Michael and Ellen would be related as either brother and sister or husband and wife. I haven't checked that out yet.

I have been able to access their resources and have 100's of Tolliday names to look at.

Birth, Deaths and Marriage records - includes registration numbers, mother's maiden names and location of the event.

I have information relating to BDM 1902 - 1913, BDM 1914 - 1920 and Marriage records 1921 - 1942. Two names available on an Inquest Record of 1840 - 1985.

John Harker and Margaret Shade Updated June 2008

John Harker was the second child of Leonard and Mary Harker and was 8 years old when he accompanied his family to Australia in 1852.

In the June of 1852, his dad Leonard (44) his mum Mary (35) his four siblings Margaret 10,Elizabeth 6,Mary 4 and 11 month old Thomas sailed to Australia on the ship Merlin. They departed from Liverpool and arrived 3 months later in September 1852 at Port Phillip Bay, Victoria, Australia. Leonard was the 4th child of Simon and Margaret Harker (nee Mudd)

I have obtained details of a Thomas Harker son of Leonard and Mary Harker being born in 1854 and dying in 1862. This means that this is a second Thomas. The first Thomas was 11 months old on the voyage to Australia in 1852. See above paragraph.

John Harker married Margaret Shade in 1871. MRN 259. They had twelve children.

Mary Jane Harker born 1875 in Gaffney's Creek, in Victoria. BRN 22997.

William Harker born 1873 in Gaffney's Creek, Victoria. BRN 2545.

Margaret Harker who married Albert Feldtmann they had a son Leonard who married Thelma Burrows.

Mary Jane Harker

Thomas Leonard Harker who married Eleanor Charlotte Ludeman and they had five children.

John Henry Harker

Alfred Harker born 1882 at Dookie, Victoria. BRN 2017. He married Florence Hall and they had four children.

George Harker

Emily Harker who married James Ratcliffe and had four children.

Louisa Harker who married William Hall and had three children.

Charles Harker born 1888 in St James, Victoria. BRN 15879

Arthur

As was a usual practice in the old days, if a child died at a young age, sometimes when the next child of the same gender was born the parents would call it the same name as the one they lost.

In this family there are two girls who have been called Mary Jane, I have just found details of one of the girls.

I have a large family tree chart showing the descendants of Leonard and Mary Harker nee Sharp. If anyone wants any information from me then just drop me a line. Unfortunately the big chart has no dates on it apart from the first generation. I have a smaller chart of the Harker/Corboy clan which is our side of the family (Simon and Margaret nee Beattie). This shows dates and locations.

Contact me if I can be of any assistance with your research on any of these families.

O'Donnell Births Deaths and Marriages

I recently joined our local Family History Group in Benalla.

I have been able to access their CD's and found large numbers of Australian O'Donnells.

I have printed out 200 names from each of the following indexes :-
(tho there are many more names on each index that is the maximum allowed for printing)

Births Deaths and Marriages for Victoria from 1889 - 1901 called the Digger Federation Index.

Births Deaths and Marriages from Digger Edwardian Index for Victoria 1902 - 1913.

Death Index from Digger dates range from 1921 - 1985.

These records show the parent's names if known, the location of the event whether it be a birth, a death or a marriage and the registration number of the event. I am sure we are all used to seeing either BRN, DRN or MRN. It also shows the age of the person listed at the time of the event.

All good viewing. This helps you put the right parents with the correct children and gives the maiden name of the mothers.

So if you require some information about the O'Donnells I think I can help you and if I don't have it with me today I can go back to the group and do some more searching.

Contact me if you need my help.
