Sparrett - Samuel died 1826 )
Ebch

Yes, I noted this in reply #20 ;D

It is good you are pleased with the outcomes and findings ;D

During the process of this inquiry I was browsing some online trees and family histories related to the ORPENs in Australia and must say you (and we) now know more about them than most who have published material.

Sad the Edward died only a couple of years into his sentence. >:(

Yes Neil - I had come across a marriage in 1816 of what appears to be two brothers, Lieuts. Redmond and Merrion Moriarty R.N. to  Dorcas and Anne, daughters of Edward Orpen of Kerry.  But that Edward Orpen died I think 1817 before my Edward left Ireland.  Any of their children would be .......Orpen Moriartys.   Glad I am not sorting out their offspring!  But the information might be useful to anyone researching Edward Orpen Moriarty in Australia,  the engineer?

Just in case anyone is following the Orpen Moriarty line - Whilst tidying away I found a note that
REDMOND MORIARTY married ANNE ORPEN and had 4 sons, one a barrister, and 7 daughters.  There is a very detailed obit for MERRION MORIARTY in Cork Examiner April 1864 going back to Admiral Moriarty and through the Admiral giving links to Daniel O'Connell :)

Hi Ebch

Are you researching Edward Orpen out of curiosity or is he family.

There is a very large facebook group of his descendants via his daughter Maria who married Adam Sproule (plus some of the descendants of Maria's brother) and they are having a reunion in a couple of months

Thanks Aussie - that is really kind of you.  My gut feeling is that he was joined in Dec 1824 by some of his family and that Maria Orpen could have been his wife Maria Crumpe Orpen.  He did leave behind, when transported,  a wife and eight children.  Look forward to seeing if you can get further information.  Meanwhile I am happy to search anything you need here in England.

Edwards wife was Maria Crumpe Orpen. His daughter was also called Maria Orpen. The family came out to Australa following him on the Lang. He came over on the Sir Godfrey Webster

Hi all, thank you for this wonderful information. I've just started researching Edward on behalf of a descendent and your info has really helped. Could anyone possibly advise what the name of the Facebook group is? Cheers
