HEELEY family, emigrated to victoria
« on: Saturday 04 July 09 02:11 BST (UK) »
Hi there, Im not really sure how to look for emigration records to australia, I did find a record search at the australian national archives but didnt see anything for me...

Im after members of the Heeley family, a Dr John Theophilus Heeley (1830-1910) from Birmingham (warwickshire) he married a Mary Tiernan of Victoria (her family originated in Ireland)

Dr John was buried at  Mosman, North Shore, Sydney, Australia
His son, Edmund John Heeley (1871 - 1952 ) I believe may have been "born at sea", he was buried at Woronora Cemetery, Sutherland, N.S.W.

Anyone know if, or how, I could find out more about there journey into Australia etc? I havent a clue about how to search about that kind of thing (and the heeleys are a newly found family line to me)

Marriage - mistranscribed.

TIERNAN Mariann
HEELY Theophilus
At Seymour 1866  Reg# 2653

Excellent resources at the top of the board - Australian and the individual states.  Perhaps John T emigrated to Vic and there are a few names and a number probably mistranscribed on

As he married in 1866 perhaps just browse the 1852 to 1866 records.  I searched using just Heel*

Just adding another link to others researching the Heeley line.

Follow this link -

Perhaps some "Chatter" has access to the New Zealand Shipping Indexes.

The Victorian shipping indexes also identify ships from New Zealand.  If the linked information is correct he landed Aus 1862-1866. added later 1864.

A transcription of his death reg may also be helpful in pinpointing the year of arrival from NZ ie if known to the informant.
