Emigration from Lisnadill parish
« on: Tuesday 10 November 15 06:23 GMT (UK) »
Hi Rootschatters who know about Irish social history in the 1830's.  My ancestor came from Lisnadill Parish, and with her children, applied for assisted emigration to South Australia.  They applied twice, once apparently in Ireland, then again in November 1839, in Scotland.  They came to SA on the "Tomatin" in March 1840, leaving from Greenock, Scotland.  I'm wondering if this was a "normal" pattern for the time, or is there another reason by the widowed Ann Hanlin and her children Thomas, Letitia ( my ancestor), James and children William and Ellen, made the journey across to Scotland.
Her husband James had died before they emigrated, and I'd like to find his grave, but have had no luck trying to find him.  Griffiths Valuations (1864)had Donnellys and Hanlons in Ballybrolly, but that's not definitive enough, obviously .  Any advice gratefully received.  I'm very new to Irish searching, and am learning fast!  We'll be visiting early next year, so would like to find out as much as I can before we get there!  Thanks, in anticipation,  Meredith (Adelaide, South Australia)

Hi Hallmark,
Though not noted on their emigration applications, Ann and other family members were buried in a Church of England cemetery.  So, my assumption would be Church of Ireland?  Am I correct in that assumption?

Yes, always good to have a good idea of their Religion so your assumption would be correct!

Actually you can't assume that they were Church of Ireland. They might have belonged to another denomination but when they got to Australia started going to another church in the area for some reason.

Thank you, Hallmark.  I'll try and contact the Lisnadill Parish, to track down James Hanlin's burial.
