Ellen Ryan migrated to Australia onboard the "Kate", arriving in Sydney on 13/10/1850. The passenger list gives her age as 22, which puts her birth around 1828, place of birth Kilkenny, religion Church of Rome. Citation: https://indexes.records.nsw.gov.au/ebook/list.aspx?series=NRS5316&item=…]
Daniel Coyle married Ellen Ryan in St. Marys Cathedral, Sydney 29/09/1851. Citation: NSW BDM: 328/1851 V1851328 97.
Later, on one of their children's birth certificates, on 03/07/1861, Ellen gives her age as 30 which makes her birth closer to 1830/1831 (wishful thinking???) but elaborates on her birthplace as Gowran, Co. Kilkenny.
So far I haven't found any death or burial registrations for either Ellen or Daniel, but I doubt that they would have returned to Ireland in their advanced years, so I am still looking here in Australia.
I would love to connect with any members of the Ryan family from the Gowran area, to get to know what life was like back then, and to learn more about her family history.
