Colch ex Tullamore
« on: Wednesday 09 May 07 06:55 BST (UK) »
Hi Folks,

I wonder if some kind person can add to my knowledge of the Colch family, I have Thomas Colch married to Mary Sheeran (no dates) they had three children Marguerite, Thomas b. 1847 Tullamore and George who came to Queensland, Australia.
Thomas Colch married Bridget Doud (Dowd) of Galway in Maryborough, Queensland on the 12 Feb 1876. They had eight sons and one daughter.
Would like to learn something of their former life in Ireland.

Best Wishes
Arana80

Hi, according to Griffiths Valuations (c1854), there are two Thomas Colchs living in the village of Cloncon, parish of Geashill, Tullamore.  Both leased from a Thomas Jackson.  One leased a house, offices (which could be any buildings such as outhouse, shed etc) and land, and the other leased a house and land.  There is a John Cloch living next door to one of them.

Do you have any idea what his profession was?

Regards
Lesley

Hi Lesley,

Thanks for your help, much appreciated.
Thomas & Bridget Colch after their marriage obtained a grant of land, where they spent their life farming, so perhaps he came from a rural background.

Regards
