Ellen WHEELER, nee Ronayne,married Hobart 1875
« on: Tuesday 06 February 18 00:41 GMT (UK) »
I'd  be grateful for any details on this lady...

What I know so far includes:

      . her marr. certificate shows Ellen Ronayne, born 1855, father Richard Ronayne and mother Margaret Ronayne. Spouse was Martin Wheeler, a mariner. Both 20 years old.

      . info from c.1890 newspapers, re. the criminal case against her father Richard.

In these newspaper reports, she is described as both daughter of Richard and step-daughter of Richard.

Confusion resulting.

I have been unable to find a birth, or any other, record for her or Martin. Margaret, the mother, may be the one born in Ireland, and I am wondering if Richard and Margaret may have been related and not married? Perhaps Ellen is Margaret's dau. only?

I have good records of her father Richard, who was transported form London 1843.

Thanks, dear readers.

The Female Convicts Research Centre has Margaret in their database under a number a name variations.
https://www.femaleconvicts.org.au/

They have her marrying Richard Raneque on 28 Sept 1857 which seems to be this one on the Linc Names Index (Richard Ronagan and Margaret Lundakin)
https://stors.tas.gov.au/RGD37-1-16p137j2k
It does read as Ronayne on inspection

They also have her as convict Margaret Laundrygan (Aurora 2 dept. 1851)
and Ellen as born Nov 4 1853 as shown on Margaret's conduct record
https://stors.tas.gov.au/RGD33-1-5-p626j2k

I recommend having a look at all the information researched in the database, but checking the facts for accuracy

Says Martin was a native of Holland, so you would have to look for a birth there.
