Flynn McNamara to Australia
« on: Friday 27 January 17 00:12 GMT (UK) »
Hi - this is my first post.  I am looking for any information on these two families; rumored to be related in Ireland. Any help or hints gratefully received!  Sue

I am hoping for help with my husband's Laois ancestors- have hit a brick wall. Siblings John Flynn b~1809, Catherine Flynn, b~1819 all came to Australia with mother Mary McNamara? Flynn b~1770 on the North Briton arriving 14/12/1839. Siblings Margaret Flynn b~1824, Bridget Flynn may have come earlier 1833?. Father John Flynn was dec. ll the details came from their ships' papers: John Flynn (Kildare?, Queens), mother Mary McNamara Flynn (Maryborough, Queens. p: Thomas McNamara and Margaret Hutchinson).

They are supposedly cousins with Thomas McNamara (Co Galway, b ~1814), son of Patrick McNamara and Ann Hough, arrived 1830s. Thomas McNamara from (Glencoe, Galway).

Australia/Ir: Kelly, Flynn, McNamara, Dunshea
Oz/UK:White, Higginbottom, Oz/DK: Miller (Moller-Danish),
USA: Olson (Danish), Larson (Swedish), Ongstad (Norwegian), Stockert/Bast (German via Ukraine)
