What was the name of their father.
I attach two records of an Edward McGlynn who emigrated to Melbourne in 1852 and the death record of an Edward McGlynn in 1855.
Do they relate to your "Edward McGlynn".
Have you the death records for Edward and Martin?
Yes that is Edwards death record. However he died in December 1854 - his death was not recorded until 1855.
My death certificate does not have his father's name. The informant was a storekeeper.
But his brother Martin named his only son Thomas - could that be their father's name?
There is no death certificate for Martin - he died in 1853.So I don't have any family details for him either.
That's interesting about the ship's record - maybe it is Edward.
So what is your interest in Edward?
Thanks for responding.
Attached record from Subscription site www.rootsireland.ie which shows a baptism in the parish of Carrick-on-Suir in 1786.
Apparently the entry in the church record was MA Glin which was corrected to "Glynn" by Roots.
A check for a "Thomas MA Glynn/McGlynn" in County Tipperary was negative.
Griffith's valuation in Henry Street, Tipperary Town record a Mrs Margaret O'Leary of being the owner of No. 80 Henry Street.
You should contact St. Michael's Parish in Tipperary Town - email: firstname.lastname@example.org to see if there is a death record
for MaGlyn post 1850.
Ned McGlynn was involved in the miners protest at the Ballarat goldfields in December 1854.They took up arms and built a stockade on the Eureka site of the goldfields as a protest against the mining license. It's known as the Eureka Rebellion. The Eureka area was well known because there were many 'Tipperary Boys' living there. The army attacked stockade - 8 of the 30 miners who died were Irishmen - including Ned.
So now I have a famous ancestor in my tree!
His body was put in an unmarked grave at the Old Ballarat cemetery.
