|I am from the Scone / Aberdeen area in New South Wales, Australia. All of my ancestors came from Ireland apart from the Whiteheads. They all migrated to Australia between 1835 and 1860.|
My Spencer ancestors came from Avoca Wicklow - Ireland in the 1840's. My ancestor came out on "the China" and was married to a Mary Ann Stark before coming out.My Walkers came from Enniskillen Ireland the same time about. The Whiteheads came from Hoyland Yorkshire 1840's. These are my father's side. My mother was a McGoldrick- whose ancestors came from from Boa Is. in Ireland They came out in the 1850's. Also Flanagans from Tipperary in the 1850's. The names Tripp, Butler and Carrigh feature. Also a name Anne Lilbyrne who was first married to a Neilan but married McGoldrick here in Australia . All of the above settled in the same area of NSW Australia mentioned above...
I married a Mackay who descended from Mackays in Brisbane, and Grey - Walkers from the same place. The grey - Walkers came from Ayr in Scotland in the early part of the 1900's. On his mother's side are Towners/ Greiggs or Greggs from St George/ or Moree in NSW Australia.
