Charles Daly
« on: Thursday 27 April 17 22:59 BST (UK) »
Greetings from South Africa,
I may have posted a similar query years ago - so please forgive me. I am looking for information on Charles Daly (b 1832) who came to South Africa between 1847 and 1849. He later decided to return to Ireland, but took ill on board ship and was  left on St Helena to recover. While there, he changed his mind and decided to return to S.A. He was picked up by the Birkenhead troop ship en route to the Cape. This ran aground at Danger Point and Charles Daly was the only civilian survivor. He died in 1903. I know nothing of his Irish history except that his death notice shows his father as Martin. He is purported to have come from Gort. A chink in this wall would be amazing!!
Regards

Hi,
I searched for Church records,, too early for those listed.
BUT
The Tithe records (tax and rents) have this.........
Surname   Forename   Townland/Street   Parish   County   Year
Daly         Martin        Rosmore           Ballynakill    Galway   1834

Ballynakill is south of Gort town.

I did see the Death Notices for Charles in 1903 and also for his wife.
A Charles Daly left SA and went to the USA in 1902 he was 24, I did see a Charles on the Children list on the death notices.

I hope this is a  help.

Hi Maggsie,
Bless you for all this info. I do have most of it - what a fascinating chap he was. He is mentioned quite substantially in the Birkenhead piece. I just can't find him in Ireland. The Birkenhead piece mentions that his father was an agent/bailiff for Earl Clanricarde - but one can never assume anything without records.
I did not know that bit about Martin born in Ballinaskil. If this Martin was born in 1834, he may have been a brother.(Charles b in 1832) Again too many maybe's - will need to persevere with that clue.
Thanks again.

Hi,
No Martin was the tax/rent payer in 1834.

Had a grey moment there!! Thanks for clarifying. I shall persevere with that. The Charles Daly who came from South Africa aged 24 doesn't seem to fit in my timeline. After the death of my Charles' wife, Harriet Jeanette,  he, together with one of his sons went home to Ireland where he met up  with an unnamed sister, It was soon after his return to SA in 1903 that he was killed in an accident involving one of his oxen(!!)
Thank you so much for all your help.
Regards
Flick
