Going back to the County Down angle-

"Peter FAWCETT   , Saintfield,   son of Anthoney Fawcett, married Jane Clanney 13 Feb 1851."
same database has "Anthony FAWCETT, Saintfield, burglary in his Saintfield house; publican 29 Nov 1856"
http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~rosdavies/SURNAMES/F/Fa.htm

Perhaps a co-incidence but will see if I can find anything else about this Anthony Fawcett in Saintfield.
Away sorting out DNA matches... I may be gone for some time many years!

Peter Fawcett - father Anthony
« Reply #10 on: Friday 22 November 13 04:28 GMT (UK) »
Thank you aghadowey,
I did not intend to use your expertise by stealth.

1. I have a copy of the church marriage - Peter says he is of "full age", a bachelor, a servant at Strangford, and his father is "Ant y" Fawcett, a steward.
2. His NZ Death Certificate (24 Feb 1891)says he was born in Wicklow, his father was Anthony, a land steward, he was married in Saintfield, and had been in NZ for 40 years.
3. He has two newspaper biographies - one says he was born in Saintfield, the other in Wicklow. 

One record that I thought some one in Ireland might find was for the marriage of an Anthony Faucett and Rosanne?
I have found on ifhf.rootsireland.ie a baptism for the birth and baptism for a Peter Faucett to these parents. The birth is 22 Aug 1827, bapt 25 Sept 1827, COI, Donnybrook. This is only 3 years out for my Peter.
And if not the marriage, then the death for Rosanne Faucett. (There may be many Anthony's but I have not found another Rosanne F.)
These records would help - one way or the other.

Yes, I have wondered about the Fawcett publican in Saintfield, but have never found anything extra.

aghadowey, if you can find me a lead of any sort, I will be over the moon, excited, thrilled etc, etc.

Many Regards

This is an old post but Im also looking for Fawcetts from Wicklow.

My ancestor Mary Fawcett was born around 1817 and married in Co Longford to Thomas Morton. He father was named at William Fawcett. Fawcett was not a name normally associated with Longford.

A recent DNA connection between two members of Mary and Thomas shows a link to Henry John Fawcett 1819-1884 who moved to Australia. Ruling out any of the maternal lines the connection is more likely to be to the Wicklow Fawcetts. Henry John Fawcetts parents were William Fawcett and Grace Meates who married in 1810.

Knowing that death certificates can be notoriously unreliable have you looked at using DNA as one of your sources to link/delink your family from the Wicklow Fawcetts?

The Church of Ireland registers may contain the information you need as they seem to be largely intact for the time periods although Ive not had this confirmed from the COI staff.

If you can confirm a link between the Fawcett families you may be interested to know that Elizabeth Morton - daughter of Thomas and Mary Morton nee Fawcett moved to New Zealand as well and married twice with both husbands dying tragically. Her descendants being some of the Seawrights and Mawhinney families.

Thank you for your reply Revolution,

Yes, I am definitely looking at DNA to help with brick walls. (One might just be about to come down in England with another of my ancestors).

I do suspect that my Anthony Fawcett is English born, and I am even more sure that his father is English. I just cannot find the link between the two men.

I will have a look at your Australian Fawcett names.

Regards,
Jean

Thanks Hallmark. On ancestry one of the descendants has put up a headstone photo. Would love to be able to determine if this is my family too before my trip to Ireland in September.
