McIntyre family tree

HI all,

my family name is McIntyre and we have traced my great great great grandfather back to Dublin and also Roscommon (the latter was from a census document).  He left Dublin to come to Australia in 1836.  We don't know much else about him.

i am hoping through these boards i can discover more.

thanking you in advance

  • Hi Julie,

    Welcome to the site.

    Do you have a first name for your g g grandfather & an approximate birth year (from age at arrival in 1836 or age at death & death year)?

    Also, do you happen to know if he was C of I or R C?

    These will help to narrow the search

  • Hi Julie,

    First name is a help but no birth/baptism records for James McIntyre or McEntire in Roscommon I'm afraid

    The closest Irish Census to 1824 is 1821 & it doesn't have Roscommon records so I'm curious about your census info

    Do you know which state in Australia he arrived at in 1836?
