Excuse me, i am french and I don't speak English vey well.
The site of the marriage of Rudolph Felton and Ellen Sullivan is Queenstown (Cobh).The couples witnesses were John Tohan & Mary Coughlan
So I thought the parents of Ellen Sullivan was John Sullivan and Joanna Dignan.

I am much interested in your last post:-

"So I thought the parents of Ellen Sullivan was John Sullivan and Joanna Dignan".

Do you have any documentation or other records to support the parents of Ellen Sullivan being John Sullivan and Joanna Dignan?

This John Sullivan is my Great Grandfather X 4.

I have done extensive research around Ellen Sullivan include visiting St Colemans Cathedral in Cobh (Queenstown) and could not establish any further link after her baptisim record of 1840.

Incidentally I have a copy of this record.

I also have a copy of the baptism record of her brother John Sullivan, my great grand father X 3 who came out to New Zealand.  He fought in the Maori Wars around Wanganui and south Taranaki in 1866.

At the time of my visit in 2013 I was much assisted by the office staff at St Coleman's Cathedral and a considerable time was spent on this research in Cobh including other genealogy agencies.   There was no other record of Ellen Sullivan after 1840 ... she had vanished !!!

Also another twist.  Joanne Dignan's correct surname is DINAN.  This was established beyond doubt if I recall correctly from John Sullivan's hospital admission records from 1920 in  Christchurch, New Zealand.

You might also want to refer to my post about John Sullivan and Joanne Dignan (Dinan), John Sullivan, his sister Ellen Sullivan and my visit to Cobh (Queenstown) in 2013.

Hello,

I have seen in this forum that an Ellen Sullivan was married with Bernard Mac Namara. So I am not sure of my infomation.
In attachment a copy of marriage of Rudolph Felton (german) and Ellen Sullivan at Queenstown in 1863?

Greetings Arnaud

I am very certain of my information.

John Sullivan and Joanne Dignan (Dinan) are the parents of  Ellen Sullivan baptised on 23.02.1840, very soon after her birth, at St Colemans Cathedral in Cobh (Queenstown).  I have viewed in person this baptisim record and obtained a copy when in Cobh.

Neither of your Ellen Felton's (nee Sullivan) can be the daughter of John Sullivan and Joanne Dignan (Dinan).  One died in 1885 aged 48 which meant she was born in 1837.  The other died in 1886 aged 45 years which meant she was born in 1841.

The facts cannot be any clearer then that.

Further information

For those residing around or near Christchurch.

The Baptism records for John Sullivan and Ellen Sullivan siblings of John Sullivan and Joanne Dignan (Dinan) can be viewed in the Christchurch City Library and Archives under the Glennie / Sullivan Family History.

I donated those records to the Christchurch Library 2 or 3 years ago.
