  • He also had a 3rd son who was transported to NSW per the "Surrey" in 1836 his name was Bryan (aka Bernard) born c1811.  Along with his sons Patrick and John Creevy, a nephew, Lackey (Malachi) Creevy was also transported in 1833 per the "Royal Admiral" for the same offence.    

    It appears that son Patrick Creevy  was born at Horseleap near Kilbeggan, Westmeath .   On Patrick Creevy Jnr's daughter's birth certificate, for which Patrick was the informant, he states his place of birth to be Oslif, Westmeath, Ireland.  It is fairly certain that Oslif should be Horseleap and no doubt Patrick's accent caused the place name to be incorrectly transcribed.

  • Hi Maggie, yes, we have come to the same conclusion regarding “Oslif and Horseleap”.  Lovely to hear from you.  Do you have any other info on Patrick and Catherine!  I am planning a visit to Ireland in 5 weeks and would love as much info as I can get before visiting.  Would be glad to share photos or anything else I find whilst there. Kind regards Trina
