My G Grandfather was Daniel Patrick Carroll born Malta 1866. He gave his next of kin as Julia Carroll, Conner Street, Birr, Co Offaly. He had brothers: Patrick, John, Christopher, Thomas, Michael, and Robert; sisters Bridget and Julia. I think the father was Rory or Roderick but others have said Patrick John Carroll. Malta suggests a connection with the British Army since there is no record in Maltese Civil Records. They moved around.
