I am seeking information about the ancestors of WILLIAM GORE (1765-1845),provost-marshal of New South Wales. Prior to his appointment he lived in Ireland, where he had property interests. In 1798 he and his wife (Ann ?) and others were imprisoned by Irish rebels but weresoon released. On 1 August 1805, on the recommendation of the earl of Harrington, Gore was appointed provost-marshal of New South Wales.
Gore travelled to Sydney with Governor William Bligh and took up his duties in August 1806.
After considerable controversy during the Rum Rebellion he received a land grant in 1810 and named his farm after his family's ancestral Irish home 'Ardthelmon' (pronounced Art-e-mon). The Sydney suburb or Artarmon was named after his farm.
But where was the ancestral farm in Ireland? Who were his parents? What was his wife's maiden name? Family oral history connects him to the Earls of Arran - is this true? Help please.
