I am researching my husband's O'NEIL family. Edward O'NEILL married a lady by the name of Charlotte O'BRIEN, I have NO other information on them except that they had a son named Charles O'NEILL b 1830 Tasmania, Australia. Charles O'NEILL married a young Irish immigrant by the name of Mary BUTLER b 1840, Tipperary. Ireland. They were married in 1858 at St Mary's Cathedral, Sydney. Australia. They had many children I've been told, though I have only the one name, who is Charles Edward O'NEIL b 5 sept 1862, Little Plain, NSW. Australia and died 4 May 1950. Charles Edward married a lady by the name of Isabella Ada Althea PYE b 12 Sep 1870 and died 31 Jan 1951. In total Isabella and Charles had 17 children, though only 15 survived. My husband's great grandmother was child number 12...Ruby Ester O'NEIL. I've been told from a source that NO information on Edward O'NEILL can be found in Tasmania, Australia or over in Ireland, which makes us to believe that maybe he changed his name to O'NEILL (for what ever reason). If you have ANY information at all regarding this I would really love to hear from you. Thanks! Kellie

I am researching an GGGGgrandparent called Bridget O'Neill. She is sometimes also listed as Margaret. All I know so far is that she was born in 1821 and was in a County Cork Orphanage until 1833 when Lady De Bathe organised or was involved in an emmigration scheme for young ladies to work abroad. Bridget was sent via Liverpool on the Edward Colston in June 1833 to Tasmania. She married James Brown in Tasmania in 1839 and moved to Victoria, Australia. She may also have a brother called Michael. If you have any info at all that might be relevant I would love to hear from you. Thanks, Sonya. email: andyfryer@iprimus.com.au

My great grandfather, Patrick O'Neill came from Northern Ireland. He first went to Australia with two brothers (possibly John, Hugh, James or Joseph)not sure if they were convicts. When they left Australia, Patrick came to America and settled in Berkeley, California were he married Julia Curran from Quebec, Canada. His brothers supposedly went back to Ireland. Any information on this family would be appreciated.
