Does anyone researching DAVOREN family in Australia have any 'Casey' connection?
My Father was 'Davoren' Joseph Casey. Davoren was reputedly a family surname used as a first or middle name. His Grandfather was James Davoren Casey....born approx. 1850 but apparently not in Aust, possibly US or Ireland?
The family was from Count Clare originally. The info I have so far:
James Casey b. unknown date & place. - m Unknown
Son: James Daveron Casey b. approx 1850 unknown location.d. Melb.Vic 1922 - m. Amelia Quinn 1876 in Burra/Kooringa SA. 5 children.
His youngest son: Francis Patrick Casey b. 1888 Melborne. d. 1919 SA. m. Katherine/Kathleen Lynch 1914 in Broken Hill, NSW.
His son: Daveron Joseph Casey b. 1915. Broken Hill d. 1958
Perhaps the wife of the first James Casey may have been a 'Davoren', hence the use of the name as a first or middle name.My Grandmother said there was some family connection to well known Solicitors called 'Davoren.
