Hi Kildare, I would appreciate any help. I am trying to trace the family of Mary Farrell who I understand to have been born in Kildare 1825. I am assuming this means Kildare in Kildare, rather than the county. She had a sister named Jane who I think was a bit younger, and a brother named Thomas, possibly also younger. There may have been other siblings. All 3 were in South Africa before 1850.This means that Mary and Jane were in their early 20s or younger at the time of emigrating from Ireland. Given their age and that at least 3 siblings left together, it is likely that they came with their parents. So this would be a Farrell family who disappear from Irelend maybe during the 1840s with at least 3 children named Mary, Jane and Thomas.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you

    Welcome to Ireland Reaching Out!

    I will alert our parish liaison in Kildare town that you posted a message. However, your Farrells could have come from another part of the county. I did a quick search on Roots Ireland and there were 18 Mary Farrells baptized in Co. Kildare from 1823-1827 so having the parents names is very important (I know you don't have this info).

  • Thanks Roger. the information I have that 'she was born in Kildare' may well have referred to the county. The link then would be the 3 siblings born to the same parents. I assume you referred it to the county site and there is no need to re-post my message there?

    I saw your message and the county level which is fine. I posted a comment there just to make sure the message did not appear to be an unanswered message. (We do periodic cleanups of unanswered messages). If you have not heard anything by Monday, let me know by posting a comment here.
