Daniel O'Connell - The Liberator - Descendants: info will be found at

Surnames: O'Connell
Daniel's son John, (1810-1858), married Elizabeth Ryan in 1838 and, according to the Dictionary of National Biography, they had 8 children. Six of them are Daniel John (born 1839), Elizabeth (10 Sep 1840), John (26 Feb 1843), Morgan John Joseph (27 Oct 1845), Mary (1847) and Kathleen (1851).

Is anyone able to supply details of the other 2, and also of other descendants of the Liberator.

I am trying to prove or disprove if Bridget Theresa O'Connell born late 1881 in Marlylebone, London, England, is descended from Daniel. Bridget's father was John, a surgical boot maker who died before Bridget married in 1903, and does not appear in the 1881 or 1901 Censuses. I believe that John emigrated from Ireland after March 1881 when the census was taken and may have been born about 1840.

Bridget had a brother Patrick who was near Bridget in age, but I do not know if he was older or younger. So far I have been unable to establish the name of Bridget's mother.

Any help would be appreciated.
