Breens Tipperary, Irel => Australia

Breens Tipperary, Irel => Australia

I'm looking for information on the BREEN family who moved from Ireland to Australia. My GGGrandfather was Thomas BREEN born in Tipperary, Ireland around 1853. He went to Australia sometime between then and 1880 when he married Catherine TODD in Victoria, Australia. They had 5 children: Richard, John (b. 1882), Patrick, Mary (b. 1887), and Edmund (My GGrandfather, b. 1889). Richard and Patrick both died as children, but I don't have any other information on John or Mary.

I'm interested in hearing from anybody with connections to this line.

This may prove to have some use > http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~obrienclanaus/

click on the Victorian links for info on your lineage. I married into the Breen line via Thomas Breen and Johanna Maher.

I believe I saw your line (Breen / Todd) in these pages.

Hope this helps

Cheers!

I have a Catherine Breen married to Daniel/Thomas Todd. They lived in Tipperary Ireland. Parents of Margaret Todd who married Patrick Dwyer (b. 5 August, 1843 in Gort, North Tipperary, Ireland).
There is also a Thomas Todd mentioned as sponsor to baptism of one of Patrick & Margaret's children but I do not know if he is a father, a brother or an uncle. All I know is there are members of the family in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, England etc.

HI,
I have Breens in my line. Margaret Breen from Tipperary had children with John Flower in Victoria and then married Wiliam Thompson and had two further children. She is a bit mysterious though, not much known about her antecedents.

I have just found this post in March 2012.
I can add more information. My name is John Breen and my grandfather was Thomas Breen born in 1895. He was the son of Thomas Breen and Catherine Todd. While your post refers to 5 children from this union I am aware there were two additional children after Edmund - Bridget born in 1892 and Thomas born in 1895. Further Thomas Breen (the one born in 1855) died in 1898 aged 43 years. His wife Catherine Todd married again to a man called Coakley and I think had 2 further children Joe and Nell.
Therefore my grandfather Thomas was the brother of your great grandfather Edmund.
Thomas Breen (b1895)and his wife May, lived in the state of Victoria in Australia, in a town called Longwood, near Euroa, all of his life. His son John (b1923) is my father.
I am aware that his sister Mary Ellen married a man named Brodie and lived in the same area for the whole of her life.
Feel free to send any further questions about this section of the Breen family.
