I am researching Hilliards from Killarney from the 1890s back. I have the following:
1 - George Franklin Hilliard (1895-1988), Seaman, who immigrated to Australia in about 1918 - siblings were Richard (1893- ), Ellen (1894- , married Alf Waugh), Charles Louis Robert (1899 - ), and William (1900 - who was sent to America to live with relatives after his father died, and had a son called Jack, still living), George married Francis May Lack in Sydney; George was a son of
2 - George Franklin Hilliard (1859-1905), Surgeon and physician, born Killarney, died London, married Nellie Mobbs, this George was a son of
3 - Richard Hilliard, occupation, age, and spouse unknown.

From there I have nothing. Does anyone have any more information on Hilliards from Killarney, County Kerry?

I have a 10 page letter written by an elderly Killarney Hilliard to my father giving many details of his family. I believe his name was Dick and the letter was written before 1956. His father was John. John's father was William, Willaim's father was William and his father was Robert William, his father was William and his father was Captain Robert (came to Ireland in 1649 and married in 1651).

I am not skilled in matters forefatherish but I will be glad to send you a copy of the letter. It is an interesting history of the family in Ireland and the author shows himsef to be a scholar and an excellant writer. Captain Hilliard's family was from the Holderness Peninsula in Yorkshire.

I'm am trying to tie the Hilliard family of Killarney to the Hilliard Linage in Kerry beginning in 1649. I been speaking to Dick's son, but his father must have known more, would it be possible to get a copy of that letter and i could share with you some stuff i may have.
