Moloney. J
Janet or Jeanette Moloney nee Foster married my great uncle John Lawrence Moloney 1905 in Wimborne. They lived there. After he died at Ypres 1914 where did she go ? Were there any children ? They honeymooned in Poole so it's just a hunch she moved there .. Any Moloneys in Poole ? Wimborne Minster were looking for The Men on the Monument 1914-18 when I contacted them - they are making a Book to go in the Minster. Coincidence ! [ Rose Moloney ]

I have just located you site and thought that I would post a notice and get on your mailing list if possible, as I have been all around the world without any luck. This is my side and love to find a connection, as I am starting to believe that my family did arrive via the stork???

This is the information of my Moloney's, love to hear back.

My g grandfather Michael John Moloney from the information I have, would have been born around 1839. It appears that he could not read or write, as most documents are marked with an "X". It appears from most records certificates and paper clippings that he arrived in Australia around 1860. The first record (official) is he gets married in 1874 at Cressy which is near Geelong to a Jane Ann Nelson,here he states that was from Limerick, a farmer, aged 29 years and the Moloney is spelt MAloney In 1875 a daughter Isabella is born and shortly after the family moved to Donald, where most of my family still live. At Donald the name changes to MOloney. Two further children are born Mary Catherine 1879 and Michael John 1881.

In 1883 Jane passed away and she was returned to Cressy and is buried in the nearby cemetery of Rokewood In 1884 Michael married Mary Grogan at Donald, here the marriage certificate stated that he was born in Tipperary and the name is spelt Moloney. No children from marriage. Michael worked all his life as a farmer and passed away in 1922 where his age was given as 83 years. Michael's parent's my g g grand parents were Michael and Catherine Moloney nee Ryan on Michael's first marriage certificate (Nelson) his mothers maiden name was Egan, but it also could be the writing I have sent several request to the County Tipperary Historical Society, with no replies, so I am looking for other doors to open.

My limited research into what ship he arrived on has a few possibilities around the 1860 2 Michael Moloneys are recorded as farmers one on the "Royal Character" arriving in 1859 with his age 21 years the other "Empress of the Sea" 1861 aged 25 years. More work needs to be completed in this area. I have a documents that I can forward to you setting the information and the update to you Love to hear from you [ John Moloney ]

Looking for any information on the name in Poole. [ Kim Cannings ]

Known to have NEWFOUNDLAND links .[ JOHN RIGLER ]

My great-great-great grandmother, Ellen Munday (nee Senneck) and her daughter, my gg grandmother, Mary Munday, are listed as being resident at Poole Union Workhouse in 1871. In 1880 my great-grandmother, Lilly Munday, was born there, although she and Mary were living elsewhere in Poole by the time of the 1881 census. It seems that Ellen had died in Poole during the 1870's and Lilly went on to live in London. I am not (yet) sure what happened to Mary. Any information about this family would be very welcome.
