FROM INFORMATION OF ARRIVAL IN AUSTRALIAN PORTS

ANNE TRAINER UNMARRIED FARM SERVANT R.C. AGE 22 YRS. COULD READ .NATIVE PLACE (I FEEL THAT THIS WAS MEANT TO BE KNOCKBRIDE) KNOCKBRIDGE CO CAVAN. MOTHER MARGARET (DECD) FATHER TRAINER JAMES.

ANTHONY TRAINER UNMARRIED FARM LABOURER R.C. NATIVE PLACE BAILIEBOROUGH CO CAVAN. FATHER TRAINER JAMES (FARMER WIDOWER)

I HAVE NOT FOUND THE SHIPPING RECORD OF JOHN TRAINOR MY GG GRANDGRAFATHER, BUT FROM ALL REPORTS HERE IN AUSTRALIA THEY ALL TRAVELLED TOGETHER TO AUSTRALIA. THE SHIP WAS NAMED THE “ALBATROSS” AND DEPARTED KINGSTOWN DUBLIN ON 23 JULY 1841 AND ARRIVED IN AUSTRALIA 30 NOVEMBER 1841. THE VOYAGE LASTED 130 DAYS AND TOUCHED AT NO PORTS. THIS INFORMATION APPEARS ON THE SHIPPING PAPERS FOR THE TRAINERS AND MICHAEL LYNCH

CHARACTER, AND PERSON CERTIFYING THE SAME:

PAT CLARKE I CANNOT MAKE THIS OUT RICH CLARKE BAILIEBOROUGH

I HAVE NOT BEEN SUCCESSFUL IN FINDING ANY INFORMATION ON JAMES & MARGARET TRAINOR NEE CLARKE FROM IRELAND. JAMES TRAINOR DID COME TO AUSTRALIA WITH HIS CHILDREN, JOHN, ANTHONY OR ANNE AND THE PAPERS STATE THAT WHEN THEY LEFT FOR AUSTRALIA IN 1841 THEIR MOTHER MARGARET (CLARKE) WAS DEAD.

FROM ANOTHER TRAINOR LINE STARTING IN BAILIEBOROUGH, CO CAVAN, WITH WHOM I AM WORKING WITH IN AUSTRALIA, WE ARE CONVINCED THERE IS A CONNECTION TO MY TRAINOR LINE AND THEIRS.

FRANCIS TRAINOR MARRIED MARY GAUGHRAN AND HAD THE FOLLOWING CHILDREN:

JOHN TRAINOR B1834 SHANCROCK, BAILIEBOROUGH CC

OWEN TRAINOR B16/9/1835 SHANCROCK, “

MARK TRAINOR B 18/2/1838 “			“		

BRIDGET TRAINOR B 24/6/1840 “			“		

PAT TRAINOR B 7/7/1843		 “ “

WE KNOW THAT JOHN, OWEN AND MARK CAME TO AUSTRALIA BUT FEEL SURE THAT THE PARENTS AND REMAINING CHILDREN STAYED/DIED IN IRELAND.

I HAVE A COPY OF PAPERS FROM A MICHAEL KELLY, BAILIEBOROUGH, CC FEBRUARY 1980. AND THEY INCLUDE INFORMATION FROM THE BAPTISMAL REGISTER OF THE CHURH OF ST ANNE, DIOCESE OF KILMORE.

OWEN SPONSERS OWEN GAGHRAN CATHERINE TREANOR

MARK “ PAT CLARKE SALLY ???

BRIDGET “ MATTHEW AND ANNE TREANOR

PAT “ JAMES TRAYNOR BRIDGET CLARKE

FRANK “ JAMES CULLEN BETTY CLARKE

I REALISE THAT YOU CANNOT ASSUME TOO MUCH IN FAMILY HISTORY BUT IN DESPERATION WE HAVE CONCLUDED THAT PERHAPS FRANCIS AND MY GG GRANDFATHER WERE BROTHERS. WE REACHED THIS CONCLUSION FROM THE INFORMATION SHOWN ABOVE ON THE BAPTISMAL REGISTER.

THE NAMES CLARKE ARE HERE AND THIS WAS THE NAME OF JAMES TRAINOR’S WIFE (MARGARET CLARKE) JAMES TRAYNOR WAS A SPONSER IN 1843 TO PAT WITH BRIDGET CLARKE, WE KNOW FROM THE SHIPPING PAPERS THAT HIS WIFE MARGARET WAS DECEASED BY THIS TIME.

THIS IS ALL THE INFORMATION I HAVE AT THIS TIME, I WOULD APPRECIATE ANY INFORMATION YOU MAY HAVE THAT COULD ASSIST ME. Judith Morrissey Sydney Australia judithmd@sia.net.au

1827 "I have a cousin who has done some research on the McGivney/McCabe family. She corresponded with an Andrew McGivney who, in 1988, resided in Crenew, Kilnaleck town, County Cavan. He was able to help her with some of the information that we have. I descend from Andrew Meguivney/McGivney and Catherine McCabe. There is a McGivney junction in New Brunswick, Canada. My cousin seems to think that our McGivney line was from Drumloman which is next to t he townland of Crenew. Andrew sent her what he found in the 1821 census for Drumloman.

Bernard McGivney, age 55, owned 27 acres of land

Mary- age 52

their children

Andrew (my line) age 21

Thomas age 19

Bryan age 12

James age 10

Anne age 14

Eliner age 10

Mary age 17

My cousin thinks the parish may have been Crosserlough. One of the McGivneys, Michael, was the founder of the Knights of Columbus. My father used to talk about that. That branch of the McGivneys emigratedto Waterbury, CT. In 1827, there was a Bryan McGivney listed for the townland of Crenew and he owned the 27 acres previously owned by Bernard. The thinking is that Andrew McGivney, b ca 1800, went to the townland of Pottlebrack as a farm hand and met and married Catherine McCabe. Catherine was born in Pottlebrack ca 1804, the daughter of Dennis McCabe. Andrew and Catherine emigrated to this country in August of 1833 along with Catherine's brother, Patrick, "Paddy" McCabe. They settled in Malone, Franklin County, NY, which had a large Irish settlement. My cousin, Carole McGivney, found in the Tithe Applotment Book that identifies Patrick McCabe of Pottlebrack, parish of Knockbridge, Co. Cavan. for 1827.

1860 "The 1860 Mt. Sterling, Illinois census records Hugh Tinley, 53, born in Ireland, a farmer. His real estate was valued at $120, and his personal property at $117. In his household were:

> Mrs. Ellen Tinley, 53, born in Ireland,

> Matthew, 22, single, born in Ireland, a farmer

> Frank, 14, single, born in Ireland

> Thos McCabe, 35, single, born in Ireland, a farmer His real estate was valued at $200; no value was placed on his personal property.

[1860 US Census, State of Illinois, County of Brown, Township of Mt. Sterling, Mt. Sterling Post Office, Page 45 [unclear], Enumerated 19 June 1860].

+++++++++++++++++++ end 1860 census +++++++++++++++++++++

Hugh Tinley was from Cavan. He emigrated ca 1850 to Quincy, IL, where his wife Bridget McDermott, daughter of Nellie Carroll McDermott and Owen McDermott, from "NocBride" [as written in an early family record], promptly died. Hugh remarried in 1851, and, by 1854, had taken up farming in Brown County, IL, just east of Quincy, IL.

There were Bradys and Henrys who came to Hannibal, Missouri, almost across the river from Quincy, a few years earlier.

My Brady/Tinley/Henry/Monaghan research fits all these folks into the parishes of Laragh, Kill, and Knockbride. But ... I'm still sorting out the pieces.

You've always been so helpful to everyone, that I thought I'd point out something I just found about a McCabe in the US, living with Tinleys from Co. Cavan: Best regards ~ Jim Dowd St. Louis

Jan. 6, 1861 I'm researching Patrick CROSSEN, b.Feb. 22, 1858, in Co. Cavan, unknown town. His parents were James Crossen & Margaret McEntee. I know of only one sibling of Patrick, but possibly there are more. Sister Susan was born Jan. 6, 1861, Drumbinnis, Knockbride Parish, Co. Cavan. Patrick immigrated to Orleans Co., New York, USA, about 1873. He married Anna Kelly, born Niagara Co., New York, of Irish born parents. (Incidentally, one of Anna's sisters married a MURTAUGH- don't know if there is any connection to the family being mentioned on the list recently).
