Families to New Zealand, 19th Century
I am researching the origin of the Schollum family Surname, originally from Bohemia, but I understand the family name variations went to many parts of the United States, especially the names like Schallom, Schalom, and similar.
I am also researching the forebears of my parents, grandparents, great grandparents, and beyond. These names are set out below, and their likely place of origin, which I have so far discovered: McAuley, from Antrim, c 1807; Irvin from Antrim, then Rexton, New Brunswick, ; Fitzpatrick from Ireland; then Chatham, New Brunswick, Canada; Swann from Ballyvalloo, Ballina/Ballyna, nr Blackwater, Wexford, c 1820; Durney from Limerick, c 1839; Charleton, from Elsdon, Northumberland, c 1800.
Any assistance or suggestions much appreciated
