John James O'Leary & Harriett Jessie Son's
« on: Monday 20 May 19 12:38 BST (UK) »
Hi I am looking for information on the children of John James O'Leary and Harriett Jessie Barrett. I know that they had a son Donald which I have found. Apparently they had another son but he changed his name to Allan Byrnes? and married Emily Tuttiett in Australia.

I have Allan and Emily's marriage cert and it says his fathers name is John Byrne (miner) and mother is Harriett Jessie Barrett. I can't find a John byrne married to Harriett but I can find a John O'Leary.

In my family bible it mentions that Allan's possible other name is Joesph Alan O'leary.

Can anyone please help?

"..In my family bible it mentions that Allan's possible other name is Joesph Alan O'leary...."

Can you scan the full page of the bible and post here for us to see.


Where does this information come from -
"..Apparently they had another son but he changed his name to Allan Byrnes? and married Emily Tuttiett in Australia. "

From reply #1......

WW1 file of John William O'Leary [free to view and download] Full name of his mother and a brother shown:

https://archway.archives.govt.nz/ViewFullItem.do?code=21382176&digital=yes

[His date of birth is recorded here as 29.6.1895, birth registration shows 1897.]

Death registration: Actual date of death was 1.10.1916

1918/58830   O'Leary   John William   21Y

Cenotaph record- with photograph:

http://www.aucklandmuseum.com/war-memorial/online-cenotaph/record/C11693?n=john%20william%20o%27leary&w=World%20War%20I%2C%201914-1918&ordinal=0&from=%2Fwar-memorial%2Fonline-cenotaph%2Fsearch

Scroll down to the foot of the page. There is a message from a relative who says the father of John William was Jeremia**. Also a place where you can contact this relative.

**Possibly an error? See burials below.
