Completed Census Requests / Re: Doyles and Carrolls of Wicklow and Arklow
« on: Wednesday 12 June 19 09:36 BST (UK)  »
Hello Ken from Canberra here.
I am a Doyle ex Bartholemew and Bridget. Most of their children came one way or another to Australia. They were from Wicklow originally but before yours. Doyles in Wicklow are thick on the ground. Sorry I couldn't be of help.

Thanks for Trove comments. Yes only 99.9% perfect. Nevertheless a worthwhile and exciting place for all researchers regarding information on every State and Teritory in Australia, plus thousands of pieces of information added every day.

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

Dublin / Re: Bartholomew Doyle's descendants

Hi I am not aware that Bartholemew and Bridget Nugent had a daughter called Sophia Isabella. I do know that one of their sons, Andrew b 1774 married Sophia Isabella Norris in Dublin possibly at St Catherine's.
Andrew Doyle was baptised in St Catherine's Church, Meath Street Dublin on 29 November 1774.
As far as I know they had 3 children in Ireland  Cyrus Matthew born on 27 November 1792 or 1793, Louisa born 1795 and Edmund on 16 December 1799.

(Andrew was caught for forgery and as a result transported to Australia as a convict. Sophia was a free settler and they arrived in Sydney aboard the Rolla on 12 May 1803, convict, wife and 3 children. Some records state 4 children, but there was a fourth child Emma who was born in 1804. Sophia was given a grant of land and Andrew was assigned to work for her. They had more children here,  including a daughter called Sophia Isabella b. 1806

Dublin / Re: Bartholomew Doyle's descendants

Thanks for your great research and interest.
Bartholemew Doyle is my GreatX5 grandfather. He married Bridget (nee Nugent) His parents were, according to the information I have  Edward and Anna.
Can you confirm that Bartholemew had a brother Christopher. 
I have information of 7 children. James,Anthony , Mary , Thomas AndrewJohn and Bridget.
2 sons Andrew and James were sent to Australia as convicts for a) being part of the uprising in the late 1790's or b) forgery. Andrew was convicted for possession of a forged bank note in 1801 along with James, resulting in them  being exiled to Australia, being detained at Newgate Prison, Dublin before being transported.They were transported on the ship 'Rolla', leaving Ireland on 4 November 1802 Wives and families were allowed on the Rolla which left Cork on November 4 1802..Andrew's wife Sophia Isabella nee Norris and three children(Cyrus Matthew b.1793, Louisa b.1795(later to marry in Aust toJKMcDougall and later W. Ardagh) and their 3rd child Edmund b.1799) went with them. 4 children later bornto Andrew and Sophia in Aust.
For my link,Cyrus Mathew  first married Frances Bigger in 1814, Big Andrew was their first child.b.1815. He married firstly Catherine Broughton Howe in 1837. Thefirst of their 10 children was Andrew Cyrus(littleAndrew). He married Angelina Williams in 1862. Their 5th and last child was Kenneth Louis Cyrus Doyle b.1874. He married Mary Butcher. Their 3rd and last child Kenneth Raymond (Ray) was my dad.
So many questions.  I too would be interested of the parents back in Dublin Bartholemew and Bridget. They must have  been heartbroken with so many of their children and grandchildrenbeing half a world away. 
What happened to them? Did they have other family members back in Dublin? Looking for answers.
