I know it's a long-shot, but here goes:

My name is Colette O'Rorke, and my great-grandfather was MICHAEL RORKE/ROURKE, born c. 1820. I'm not sure where, but possibly Kildare as he married Bridget McNally (born Celbridge c. 1825) at Catholic Church of our Lady's Nativity, Leixlip, Co. Kildare on 10 February 1852. I have their Church Marriage cert, but unfortunately no parents or townlands given. Witnesses were Margaret McNally, Laurence Mangan & Michael Mannion.
They had daughter Ann in Leixlip in Dec 1852.
They then moved to Dublin, and were there in 1857 when next daughter that I know of, Catherine Mary, was born in June 1857. Both Michael & Bridget died in Dublin too.
Their son Christopher, born Dec 1859, is my grandfather.
They also had another daughter, Mary Helena, born June 1862.

Just wondering if anyone knows about Rourke family left behind after Michael & Jane + family emigrated to Oz?

Thanks in advance for any help or info.

Colette xx
