looking for any family member with the surname 'HOLY'
« on: Sunday 06 June 10 12:56 BST (UK) »
Hi folks,
I am new at this.
I would like help in finding any information on Jeremiah Holy born 1814 died 1884 at Smythesdale. He married Elizabeth Barry born 1817 died 1881 at Smythesdale, Victoria.
One son was Timothy Holy born1858 Geelong, died 1933 at Deniliquin, NSW.

Welcome to Rootschat, Tocumwal.

There are some digitised WW1 records for Albury (Aubrey) Rupert HOLY, Clifford Percivall HOLY, and Jack HOLY all with father T HOLY, as well as a WW2 mention of Blodwen Morwenna HOLY dau of George HOLY.

http://www.naa.gov.au/collection/recordsearch/index.aspx

Search as a guest - unfortunately there are quite few records to sift through as  the word "holy" is also used in its more usual meaning.

National Library digitised news papers show:
1854 - A Jeremiah HOLY gave 3 pounds to the Convent of Mercy.  The Convent appears to be in Melbourne but his money was collected in Geelong.
1848 - A Jeremiah HOLY was assualted at his place of work.

Births of nine children are shown on NSW BMDs for Timothy and Janet in Deniliquin - some deaths and marriages for HOLY in Deni also.

Electoral rolls show
1903
John Thomas HOLY,  miner and Michael Joseph HOLY, miner both at Smythesdale

I don't have access to Victorian indexes but some other 'chatters may be able to find some births for you.

Hi Judith,
I diidn't that about John and Micheal. It is hard to find out any information on the name Holy.
