The Rendells and McSwineys of Australia

Updated September 18, 2010

About Our Family Research


My first interest in the genealogy of my family was inspired by a book. A book that was given to my great, great grandfather by his mother as a parting gift when he took to a seafaring life. He was Samuel Rendell (1831-1904), purser on the ship "Albatross" when he landed on Australian shores in 1853. He soon married Margaret Wood (1824-1912), who also arrived on the "Albatross", in Melbourne, then eventually to make their home in Yarram in Gippsland, Victoria.


My husband's family, the McSwineys, are a fascinating and strong-willed line that I find compelling and don't wish to separate from my first research. Though just starting and not much yet accomplished, the McSwineys of Cork, Ireland and those that hail from Australia since the 1860's are most endearing. This research is done, continued and dedicated to a most wonderful and charming lady, the late Christina Grace Tait Gilchrist McSwiney (1925-2008), to whom I left my surprise just a little too late.
