Looking to trace family connections or any info relating to John MADDEN b. ? 1785/1792? married Bridget WHITTAKER(no known info on her) about 1813 in Clontuskert, Ballinasloe.They had 3 children born there: Patrick b.?1814; Mary b.?1817 and John b.1818.
John snr was transported to 1820. His son (John Jnr) and the rest of the family followed in the 1839-44 migration, but the daughter Mary may have stayed in Ireland or gone back later? I think John jnr. arrived in NSW with his brother Patrick, in 1839/40 on the ship "Elphinstone", but am not sure of the year. This son John, married Margaret GIVNAN (parents James GIVNAN & Catherine McGEOCH/ Kath Mckeogh)who were from Kilvorragh or Killamangh, Galway. James & Kath had died by 1939 and Margaret came to Aust. as an orphan in the care of her cousin William Geogan & his wife Biddy. William's mother was Mary Givnan, James' sister. Don't know if there were any other children of either James or his sister Mary and if they stayed in Ireland. Any info re: the GIVNAN connection greatly appreciated. Aust info shows Margaret's surname variously stated as Gibney/ Gemmens/ Gemmelin/Gimmellin.
