Bridget Condron From Mullingar Co Weastmeath.
I am looking for my Great Grandmother’s family, her name was Bridget Condron
RC - Baptised Mullingar 11th Feb 1834.
Elizabeth (born L’estrange) and Edward Condron
Her 2 Siblings
James Condron RC - Baptised Mullingar 11th May 1826
Mary Condron RC - Baptised Mullingar 11th Mar 1831
In 1849 Bridget and her sister Mary where part of the 40 girls sent from Mullingar, to Adelaide South Australia,
as famine orphans (Earl Grey’s Scheme)
I have found a death record for an Edward Condron in 1836, may have been their father?
What became of Elizabeth their mother, did she die before they came to Australia, or was she in a workhouse?
What became of Bridget and Mary’s brother James Condron? ( I couldn’t find any death records)
There is a Mullingar RC marriage of James Condron to Catherine Casey 11/1/1851 (no parents names recorded)
I am trying to verify if this James Condron is Bridget’s brother?
I have worked forward in time with this James Condron, in the hope I may find a descendant who can verify their family history before James and Catherine?
James and Catherine Condron had 7 children,
