William Gleeson

I am keen to make contact with any Gleeson decendants/family members of William Gleeson, my GGGrandfather..

William is believed to have been born in 1821/1822 and was transported to Australia/Tasmania in September, 1842 at age 20 years on a charge of grevious assault. His offence was committed in the parish of Ballymackey, possible townland of Killeisk (report of the altercation show Killiniska), so it is most possible that he was born and lived with his family in this parish.

Australian records record his parents and Timothy Gleeson and Sarah Mallally/Mullally.

Kind regards, Edenhope
