Yes, I guess DNA is the only way to be sure. I have been considering doing DNA but it's not high on the agenda at the moment. By the way, my 2xgreat grandfathers full name was William John Tweedy, and my great grandmother was Martha Tweedy.

Hi, I have been reading your Rootschat comments on your Tweedy Family. I too am researching my great great grandfather William Tweedy from Newry (Co Down). William was a convict transported to Australia in 1849; he was 17 years old and the ONLY info I have on him is he was born 1830 was Presbyterian and spent time in the Newry Workhouse. He seems to have been educated and could read and write, always signing his name, not using a mark (X). He married in Australia, children Elizabeth (d) Mary, Martha, Robert, Jane, Ellen, Sarah and William (d), and a second William. As Banbridge was within 15 miles of Newry, I am hoping your Tweedy/Tweedie may be the family I am looking for. Hope to hear from you. Kind regards, Narelle.
