Hope everyone is well during this crazy time.


Looking to suss out further into my Papa's side and I would love to know more and possibly get in contact with family as I'm sure they're out there.


Dad's name John Vincent Carroll.

Parents are John Joseph Vincent Carroll and Neta Elizabeth Burt.

Dad's grandparents are John and Margaret Carroll married at St Patrick's cathedral in Melbourne, Australia 1882 (maiden name was Hayes) both from County Clare, Ireland.

Children: Patrick Owen, Mary Agnes, Johanna Zita, Margaret Florence, Catherine Eileen and another younger female sibling who my dad believes is Doris.


Zita married a Patrick O'Shaughnessy and from what I know lived in Sydney/New South Whales at some stage.

Eileen married a Patrick Carroll who lived in East St Kilda: son Xavier and I believe a daughter Zita.

Doris married a F.J.Quinn, who apparently has 4 children that had resided in Hawthorn at one stage.


If anyone knows more or even if you're keen for a chat with a fellow Carroll I'd be more than happy to.


Thank you.

  • Hi Helenarose:  

    Thanks for your post.  Do you have parents' names for John and/or Margaret?  It might help to narrow down where in County Clare they came from.  I think that I see a John Carroll born about 1855 with a headstone noted on FindAGrave and date of death 1929.  

    Any other information would be very helpful and we can narrow down the search for you.  

    All the best,

  • Hello Jane,

    Thank you for your reply.

    I do believe I found some more information. John's parents names I think are Patrick Carroll and Mary Moloney and Margaret Hayes's parents are I think Owen Hayes and Margaret Eagan possibly from Sixmilebridge.

    Kind regards Helena :)

  • Hi Helena:

    That's great information.  I would recommend that you check out the Clare Library website for further information.  The link is here:

    You will see the Sixmilebridge parish registers are in the above link and you may be able to find Margaret Hayes baptism record.  

    Let me know if you need further help.

    All the best,
