red mail Byrne born Co Wicklow 1775
Andrew Byrne and other family members were directly involved in 1798 Rebellion. He was transported for life to Sydney, Australia arriving Jan 1800 on the transport 'Minerva' together with General Joseph Holt. Other family members were exiled to America without trial. His father, believed to be named Thomas, died during and as a result of the Rebellion in unknown circumstances. It is believed his mother's name was Elizabeth, and siblings included John and Hannah. Andrew was believed to be a member of the United Irishmen in Wicklow, but the list of members include three persons named Andrew Byrne with only one providing a residence. I am trying to trace Andrew's birthplace in Wicklow and any decendants in Wicklow. I have tried the usual on-line databases without success. As noted father and mother first names not 100% certain, but 30 Nov 1775 birthdate is certain. Appreciate the Byrne name is widespread in Ireland, but would welcome any leads or 'family memory' leads that could assist. Thank You Nevil
