Hi family researchers. One of the most useful resources to track down Australian birth/weddings/death announcements is Trove from National Library of Australia ( All newspapers/gazettes in the country from earliest settlement in 1788 are digitised.This is a free service. Also maps diaries,journals,letters. etc. regards K Doyle

The Common Room / Doyles in Wicklow
« on: Tuesday 07 May 19 02:36 BST (UK)  »
From many posts it seems like there were/are many Doyles in that part of Ireland.

Andrew (b 29/11/1774) and his brother James was sent as a convict (along with his wife and 3 children including Cyrus Matthew) to Australia, in 1803. It was his son  Cyrus Matthew who after marrying Frances Bigger daughter of a local farmer(Oct 1814) is said to have lived in the home he built on the Hawkesbury river called "Ulinbawn".

According to a newspaper record of 'The Hawkesbury Doyles' Cyrus Matthew named it 'Ulinbawn' after the old Wicklow home of the family.

Question is there a Ulinbawn in Wicklow? Is it a village or would a farm so named in the late 1700's still exist?

Can anyone shed any light on this? Hear from you. K Doyle Canberra, Australia
