Twomey Dwyer Family Tree
« on: Saturday 28 November 15 05:11 GMT (UK) »
Hi,
Adding to information below.
I am looking for:
1) Immigration records for Sarah Twomey (nee Bennett) and husband. Waiting for marriage certificate to confirm parents of Edward George Twomey.
2) Also need to clarify if the Edward Twomey (Miner)  at Gympie is my Edward George Twomey.  Edward George Twomey is buried at 1929 Balmoral Cemetery and so is Maurice Twomey who died in 1944. Not sure if this my family.
3) Edward George and Edith Alice Twomey both died young and their surviving son Leonard Henry Twomey was reared by step sister Ena Graham (nee Mantle).
4) Also looking for immigration, Marriage and/or birth records for John Dwyer and Anne King.
                                                      ---------------------------------

I am looking for ancestral information for Thomas Patrick Dwyer (?1851-1939)  who married or partnered Hannah Levy ( ?1858 - 1945)  about 1877. Unable to find marriage confirmation.  Together they had eight children. Initially they were in NSW  Australia but by 1908 they had settled in Ipswich Qld Australia. Hannah is buried in the Ipswich Cemetery Qld and Thomas Toowong Cemetery .  Hannah's parents  were Joseph Levy and ? Thompson and Thomas' father was known as John (maybe James) and mother  Anne King. 
Also looking for information on Edward George Twomey who married Edith Alice Josephine Dwyer / Mantle (1884 -1931) on  16 Dec 1922.  Edith was daughter of Thomas and Hannah Dwyer and this was her second marriage.  She had five children from her 1st marriage to Joseph Patrick Mantle and two with George  Twomey her 2nd marriage.

If anyone can assist with info would love to hear from you,
Thanks Bevcal

You need a birth certificate for a child born to Thomas DWYER and Hannah to see birthplace and age of parents.........

Maybe try this one in NSW
13819/1891  DWYER Arthur R        Glen Innes
parents  Thomas / Hannah

.....and previous issue born to this couple.

Thomas Patrick DWYER d. 1939 is buried Toowong Cemetery, with daughter Edith Alice TWOMEY d. 1931, daughter-in-law Jessie DWYER d. 1928 and Ivy May Belle MANTLE d. 1932.

Thomas Patrick Dwyer and Hannah Dwyer were in Ipswich by 1903 as they are both on the 1903 Commonwealth Electoral Roll as residing at Down St Ipswich, with Hannah as domestic duties and Thomas as a smelter.

Likely.

From the 1922 Commonwealth Electoral Roll, Edward Twomey residing with his mother, Sarah Twomey at Kennedy St, Windsor in Brisbane where Edward was a timber worker.

The family had earlier been up at Yarraman in the timber milling business.
