Sponsors: Bob McDonnald and Annie Connor

There is a marriage of Hetty Driscol to a John Crowley in 12 May 1804 at St Finbarr's (South), Cork city, Ireland, Ireland.  It is not at all certain that this is the same as Ellen Driscol d/o Timothy and Bridget.

There are a number of parties that link John Crowley to an Ellen Driscoll that is the daughter of Timothy Driscol and Bridget.  Unfortunately the names Timothy and Bridget do not feature in any of the children or grandchildren's names.

Ellen Driscol is a common name and more evidence is required to make the firm connection.  But some material is provided below to assist others make the clear link.  Those that make this link have Ellen and family going to Ontario Canada.

Possibly relevant Material - needs more evidence of the link to Timothy Driscol and Bridget Clifford.

An Ann Driscoll, from Cork, aged 27, arrived in Australia as an assisted Immigrant 27 Feb 1835 on the Duchess of Nothumberland.  It is possible that this Ann was the daughther of Bridget Clifford and Timothy Driscoll.
Unfortunately none of the childrens or grandchildrens names carry those of her parents or siblings.

The following material all relates the the Ann Driscoll who arrived in Australia on 27 February 1835.  I have not seen any evidence that is convincing that this Ann was the child of Timothy and Bridget.

The only link is her age and birth location: The NSW assisted passenger list clearly gives her age as 27.  Given the ship that arrived in Sydney in February 1835 the ship would have left Ireland in late 1834 possibly before her birthday that year.  This gives her birth as about 1806-7.  Her death was in March 1865 (probably before her birthday that year) and her age was listed as 60.  This gives her birth year as 1804-5.  On her application to marry on 20 July 1835 her age is given as 30. This gives her birth year as 1804-5.
