My Great Grandfather was William Olden, born in Middleton,Cork in 1851. I suppose he could have been the oldest member of this huge family. We have no details of his family history. He left Ireland around 1886 after the death in childbirth of his first wife (Ellen Desmond)to Liverpool where he was a pilot operator on the Mersey ferries. His daughter is my grand mother. Hope this is a link with you all!
