I am trying to trace my ancestors.

I live in Melbourne and my family seems to have started their days in Port Fairy / Warrnambool Victoria.

Let me know if you might be connected to this family network.

Coghlan family

I am interested in starting to trace my family tree. I am a member of the Coghlan family which I beleive to have originated in Ireland. My father always maintained that all Coghlans, unlike Smiths and Jones's were all related. As I am just starting out, the only information I have is as far back as my Grandfather, Horace Coghlan who was a member of the Staffordshire fire service and a local counsillor who was Mayor of Stafford for two years 1955, 1956. He was a very prominent figure in the town and still talked about. He died in Nov' 1966. He had a street in the town named after him. There are many Coghlans in Stafford and we are all related although I do not know them all. If I can help you out in any way I would be happy to do so.

I am also working on the Coghlan family name.
My Grt Grandfather was born somewhere in the United States but
his parents were married in Aston, a town now part of Birmingham.
My Gt Grandfather was Edwin Keating COGHLAN, his
father was JAMES COGHLAN and his mother was ANN Neville. I was
intrigued with the Staffodshire connection. Any common interest?

Hi Gaye,

Thomas and his wife came with his family and i think he had a brother named Denis.
Their names were, Thomas,Mary Hennessy,the children were, Thomas jnr. and John, his wife was Ann Hogan and there child.
There was a Denis and a boy aged 14 as well.
Thomas senior died in port Fairy in 1895.

Gaye,
Like you I am a bit interested in our background. I have in my possession an Obituary dated 16th September 1916 for a Michael Coghlan.
This Obituary included a bit of background including the fact Michael when two left Cork for Sydney, with his parents in the ship Magistrate.
They then travelled to Melbourne in 1839 on the Schooner Hope and in 1843 travelled to Port Fairy and eventually setteled on the Merri River at Warrnambool
where they live to 101 and 108 years of age the greater age being attained by Mrs Coghlan.
Michael is my Great Grand father, he had nine children including Thomas who is my Grandfather.
I don't know if this of any interest but don't hesitate to contact me for more info.
Cheers
Paul

John, my husbands' great granfather Michael Patrick Coghlan was born in 1898 in Co Cork. His parents were Cornelius Coghlan and Ellen Cashman. MP Coghlan married Annie Short from Wicklow. They married in 1885 in Australia. Unsure as to the date the family emigrated to Australia ?~1870. Any information (birth, baptism, marriage, emigration, area of origin) would be greatly appreciated.
