Michael Doherty and Hannah Gibbons
« on: Friday 04 August 17 04:36 BST (UK) »
Hi - I am trying to find records for Michael Doherty and Hannah Gibbons - I don't have a lot to go on.  I beleive they had children Patrick Doherty, Hugh Doherty and William J - there maybe further children.  The children mentioned moved to Australia
Any help of information with this would be great - thank you all

Just adding a link to the Australian thread http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=656367.0

Patrick DOHERTY was born in 1832, Hugh DOHERTY was born 1845 (or possibly 1855) and William was born in 1849.  They were born in Church Hill (or Churchill) 8 miles from Letterkenny.

adding : Patrick's daughter left money to a cousin Annie O'Callaghan, a cousin, in Letterkenny in 1937

Do you have a possible address for your Doherty's or year that they traveled to Australia
The surname Doherty is plentiful around Ireland

There are three people with surname DOHERTY arriving together into Melbourne in the colony of Victoria on 18 October 1852 on ticket no. 165 per the Maria which departed from Liverpool, England
James DOHERTY aged 36
Patt DOHERTY aged 32
Mary DOHERTY aged 21

Many others surnamed DOHERTY arrived in various colonies in Australia in 1852, but this is the closest for "Patrick" that my limited resources turn up at the moment.   I think it may be possible the gold rushes lured them.

This is the information that I have
Hugh Joseph Doherty  B:1845  Donegal - parents Michael Doherty and Hannah Gibbons

Hugh Joseph married Eliza (Lizzie) Fitzgibbons in 1898 in Victoria

I have a note that he has a brother Patrick but no details to back that up as yet - I believe Patrick married Mary Brennan

Does this help.
