Hi, I'm looking for information on my family tree. My father Kevin Stapleton (b.1929) had a brother who was approx 10 years older than him. I do not know his name but he died in 1951. I am looking for any information on him, He married Beryl Nellie, I believe he had 4 children.

Found no civil birth for Amy Drawbridge in Ireland. Usually women married about age 20, so an older brother would be possible between 1922-1929.

No Benedict Stapleton in Ireland's 1911 census age 2. Also no surname Stableton in the 1911
census for all of Ireland.

Hi Annette, Thanks so much for doing that research and replying, you are very kind!! Both Amy Hilda Drawbridge and Benedict Michael Stapleton were born in Oz.
Michael Stapleton (1831-1856) and Mary McEvoy (1832-?) sailed to Australia on the Gloriana in 1855.
I'm actually looking for the children of Benedict (1923-1951) and Beryl Stapleton (Mildwater) (d.2011). There was a big family break up about 60 years ago (before I was born) so I know nothing of my cousins and would like to know more about them.
If you can help me there that would be fantastic!
kind regards
Sharyn

If you think these cousins are in Australia you could try the phone book and either write or phone any Stapleton's. There are certainly Stapleton's living in Kilkenny, Ireland about 20 of them. No Mildwater's in Kilkenny or surrounding counties.

Again you can write as the addresses given in the phone book are sufficient for mail delivery.
You might be fortunate to someone interested at least. I understand Facebook is good for
finding those cousins. I don't know any more about Facebook than that. Ask a family member or friends about this.

Other than that, there isn't anything I can do for you. Good luck in your search. You might want to post on a Auzzie message board as well.

Hi Helen, my name is Sharyn and I'm the youngest of Kevin and Joan's children. It's so wonderful that you've replied!!!!! I've been trying to trace the other side of the family for many years now and would love to make contact with my cousins to find out what happened in Stapleton family all those years ago. Mum and dad never really told us much anyway. Would it be possible to correspond with you via email instead, rather than using this public forum. Thank you, in anticipation…….Sharyn .
