Hi sgtrel
At the moment none of those really ring any bells.  My Lacey's were Peter and Mary all in Arklow, Wicklow Irealand.
They had a number of children Bridget being one of them (She is my Great Grandmother) but I am afraid I can't say I have come across any called William.
Where were your Lacey's born?
Thank you

The WALL family migrated from Dunlavin, Wicklow to work for a while in Dublin and then emigrated to the Capital of Ireland to set up home 'OTB' (over the bridge) which was an Irish enclave close to the docks were, most all of the Irishmen found work.

As kids we ran the horse betting slips from family tables to the back street bookies and, in our case the instructions were pretty clear and that was to deliver the bets and cash to Lacey's. I forget the street name but it was the next one down (south) from Lemon Street which is off Stanley Road, if I recall correctly it was a stones throw from Saint Alophonsus Church. 

Anyhow there was a large Lacey family living in this home and as they were close friends of the WALL family chances are they left Co. Wicklow around same time.  The Lacey I delivered the betting slips to all those years since was probably born around 1900.

Hi Paul,
Just found your post now as I didn't get the email to tell me someone had replied to one of my posts.
This sounds like one of mine, Mathew Lacey could well have been my Grandmothers brother. He married a Mary and Canavan was a name I came across often in my research of my own Lacey connections. Arklow and Avoca Co Wicklow also.
I would have to have a good look through my documents as its a long time since I did anything on the family tree, but I am sure this is  a connection.

Hi Pete.......this definitely sounds like one of mine.....the betting slips and a large family :-) 
I only know they lived in a place called Johnstown, inch, Arklow when I found them.  Any of that relavent to what you mentioned above? I don't know Ireland at all unfortunately.

We have a Margaret Lacy (Lacey) married to one Patrick Hughs, both from Wicklow...married about 1836?  Had daughter Susan baptized Roman Catholic..Oct 14, 1837  son Thomas, baptized 01 Jan, 1840...son Patrick, baptized15 April 1842...daughter Elizabeth, baptized 10 April, 1844.  A Stephen Lacey was one of the children's sponsor...and they had a son they named Stephen, after they immigrated to Canada.  Does this fit any of your family?

My great great grandmother was Bridget Lacey, born Wicklow 1837, daughter of Patrick Lacey and Esther Byrne. I have no other details of her birth.
She emigrated to South Australia in c1852 aged 15 and worked as a domestic servant. She married William Byrne in Adelaide in 1856.
A witness to the marriage was Mary Anne Lacey, presumed sister of Bridget.
No other Lacey relatives, including parents, have been traced in Australia.
Bridget died in Western Australia in 1910.
