Re: O. DONNELLY, of Campbelltown,

In Reply to: O. DONNELLY, of Campbelltown, by Diane Alexander of 82824

Hi Dianne , extra to what Debra gave you, if you look for births on NSW BDM for children of Owen Donnelly ( inc Donelly , Donnely, Donnley etc) there are only 3, 1847 James, 1851 John and 1859 Peter , at Campbelltown. Mother given as Margaret for the three.
On the arrival of " William Sharples" 29/1/1842 Owen gives his parents as James and Anne (dec) and Margaret gives Peter Kelly or Kellidy and Anne (dec)
So of these three births , most likely at Campbelltown,James and Peter are there. As both of Owen and Margaret's mothers are Anne , it would have been likely to call a daughter Anne, they were Roman Catholics who could not read or write, so I would be looking for more variants of Donnelly, as I am sure they would have baptised her.
Another interesting thing is that Owen aged 24 had under his care Anne Kelly or Kellidy and Bridget English "under his care"
Cheers
David Dwyer
