Joseph O'Neill

Hi everyone,

I'm at a brick wall with My Ancestor, Joseph O'Neill.

I believe he was born in either England or Ireland around 1847.

On his death certificate, it states his Father was John O'Neill. Occupation - Labourer.

No birth location on his marriage or death certificate.

Jospeph immigrated to Australia approximately 1876

He was a foreman in the Timber Industry and married Sarah Riley in 1881.

Any advice on how to proceed would be incredible.

Thanks

Oz

Re: Joseph O'Neill

The O'neil's were a clan name of Ulster/Northern Ireland.

Apart from chasing down all births registered in England,(which you would have to do, for elimination purposes), the best I can offer is this........!!

Joseph O'Neil
Baptism Age: 0
Event - Baptism
Birth Date: 1848
Baptism Date: 5 Sep 1848
Baptism Place: Dromore, Down, Ireland
Parish Variants: Dromore and Garvaghey, Garvaghey
Diocese: Dromore
Father: John O'Neil
Mother: Margret Watson

Mothers maiden given, would suggest a Catholic baptism.

Re: Joseph O'Neill

There are a couple of public trees/researchers have a Joseph arriving mid 1860's as a convict - not validated and doesn't fit with your 1876 date...

Geoff

EDIT:
May be worth noting that the above Joseph received 12y in 1865, he would be free by 1877...

Re: Joseph O'Neill

Thanks, Gibbo.. May be the poster isn't too sure of the arrival date, that's the one that leapt out.
