Have you searched the Belfast Directories for James and his father William O'Neill? There are searchable online sites for the Belfast Directories.

Coincidence ? My Grandfather was Ernest James O'Neill b New Zealand, his Father, William O'Neill bc1848-50 South Australia. My Family have told me years ago that the Family originally came from Belfast. William married Ellen Mary Driscoll & their son Ernest James married Florence Bennett my Grandmother.I have had no luck in searching for William in Adelaide S.A.& have presumed the Family had emigrated there from Ireland hence his Birth there. If you think this is the same Family please contact me on anita.barbie@yahoo.com.au

Erin, I don't know if I have already corresponded with you - my G Grandfather was William O'Neill, bc1850 South Australia, but I believe his parents emigrated there from Ireland.Clearly he would not have been an only child & there would be siblings. I have not found the Ship yet on which he came to NZ. but he Married & settled & died here. I do have his MC plus the BC's of his Children. I wonder with a name like William ( common enough ! ) he could be a Son of your William ?? My Grandmother always said the Family came from Belfast.

I found James and wife Elizabeth who came to the US from Ireland in 1868. Family stories say we have Antrim origins. These are common names but the ages seem right. They apparently first went to Iowa, then to Winchester Kansas. They had two boys on arrival in US, Henry (4) and William C (3) who was my Great Grandfather. I find further records of William C of course, but not of James and Elizabeth - or Henry. Moved on to NZ? Perhaps but thats a major move leaving children behind.

Not sure this helps but thought I would post anyway.

Not our James I think. I have James and Elizabeth's marriage in Todmordon England. The four boys were born in NZ.

Thank you Erin. No, James wasn't b. Belfast. He was my Grandfather b. NZ along with his other siblings. His Father William was b. South Australia & his Mother, Ellen Mary Driscoll, b. Monmouth, England.
