Families to New Zealand, 19th Century

Journal by stephenschollum

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

Hi Stephen,
Up near the top right-hand corner of this page you will see a 'search' box. Write in a surname, press search and a list of every journal on this site which contains the name you seek will appear. Click on whichever link looks likely.

NOTE .. search all spelling. Example, there are about 200 posts on the surname Charlton in NZ but only 1 of Charleton (Whakatane)

Hi ngairedith
thanks for the prompt.
I have spent an enjoyable hour or so checking all my family names, and discovered some new leads to follow up
I am impressed with and grateful for all your contributions to providing background information for NZ genealogy users
