Thomas CARRICK and Julia RYAN were married in county Clare on 10 February 1847 according to one of their children's Birth Certificates.

Thomas and Julia had a daughter, Catherine (aged under 1) with them when they arrived in Australia in March 1850 in Port Melbourne.

I am trying to find out which parish they may have come from - the only written clue in Australia is that they married in Drumleigh.  I can find no place of this name, so I presume that this is how the name sounded, rather than how it should be written.  I noticed that there is a townland called Drummaneen and wondered whether this may be the place.

All I am trying to do is to establish which town this event may have occurred in so that when planning a trip to Ireland in the next couple of years, I can visit and find out more information about this family.

Julia is listed as coming from Kings County, her parents being Thomas RYAN and her mother was Julia, formerly RYAN.

  • Hi:


    I have some information for you to get started to try to narrow down where your Carrick & Ryan ancestors came from.  If you want to message me at, that would be great.

    Many thanks for your query to Ireland Reaching Out.


    Kind regards,
