I am trying to track down my GGGG Grandfather Hugh CONLAN.I know very few documented facts about him, but here they are He died aged 75 at Berrima New South Wales, Australia in 1867, from this I assume he was born around 1792.On his burial certificate it states his occupation as Black Smith, that his father was John CONLAN, Farrier and his Mother was Catherine REILEY, Place of birth is stated as Dublin.Also stated is his being in NSW for 35 years making his arrival around 1832.We also have a Ticket of Leave and a Conditional Pardon which means he was trasported from Ireland as a Convict. The only other information I know about him is that he married a Margaret GANNON at Berrima in 1840 and that they hadfive children:-
1Catherine17 March 1844 at Berrimamarr 4 March 1859 Garrett FitzGERALD at Berrima 2James 7 July 1846 at Berrima 3Peter 17 April 1850 at Cross Roads (Near Berrima) 4William 10 December 1852 at Sutton Forrest 5Annie Maria 16 March 1854 at Sutton Forrest marr 10 April 1872 Franz Martin BENDER at Berrima
William was deceased by the time Hugh died in April 1867 My link to Hugh CONLAN comes through his daughter Catherine's Mariage to Garrett FitzGerald and their daughters mariage to Robert Metz. I'd really apprecaite any assistance in identifying Hugh CONLAN and his origins.And if you know anything about Margaret GANNON then don't be shy about that either.
