  • Hi Dominic,

    My name is Faye. Patrick Keirce/Kearse is my great great grandfather. He is the son of Martin John Kierce/Kearse and Mary Leydon. He was born in 1828 or 1829 at Loughafolla (spelling may not be correct) Co Clare. He was baptised on 19th Maqrch 1829.  Mary died between 1829 and 17th Jan 1832 when Martin (or John) married Margaret (Mary) Gylnn. I don't know much about Margaret. I know that Patrick married Bridget Morrissey in Gort Galway in c1855. They came to South Australia on the Fitzjames arriving in Adelaide 31st Dec 1855. They sailed from Southampton. I believe his brothers, John and Thomas came with them. I know they moved from Adelaide South Australia with the family in 1869. They moved to Eltham where they stayed.

    It seems too much of a coincidence for my Patrick not to be your Patrick even though there are some difference in spelling of name and slight differences in dates. I have checked the shipping passenger lists so I know that Patrick and Bridget were on the Fitzjames. I will check again to see if Thomas and John were on it. Maybe they did not come to Adelaide until after Martin (John) and Margaret (Mary) moved. 

    I would love to hear from you to compare Family trees. My family tree is on under the name of Faye Wilkes-Johnson.

    Kind regards

  • I will do some checking but although it looked promising I'm not sure it is the same family. Thank you for getting back so quickly. This Family herirage stuff is vey addictive once you start.

  • Hi Dominic

    My research is showing that there is no apparent connection with your Glynn females. I guess we clutch at straws when we get hooked on Family heritage. I will keep checking. Good luck with your search.

  • I hope the information you provide in your articles that are useful to help others in dealing with the problems of bitterness, and that all feel relief after completing the problem. and for that I also had an interesting info for my friends here from Cipto Junaedy with a good strategy to have knowledge about properties like this he expected us to be independent and the more authoritative because Mr Cipto Junaedy is a master of the property and many know the world Desain Rumah Minimalis and also My Otomotif
