Hi, I have just joined this group in the hope of tracing my g grandmother and her ancestors, which I have been researching on and off for about 5 years.

All I know at the moment is that her name is Jane Noble she was born Enniskillen, Ireland  abt 1832,  and she married a Joseph Lewis in NSW Australia in 1853.

The rest of the information I have is very murky. 

There is a Jane Noble  (COE) that immigrated to Australia in 1852 on a ship named the David Mciver,   I have a copy of the passenger list and someone has written on it that her parents were John and Martha both deceased, I don't know if this was added by someone from Ancestry?  and they are just guessing the name of her parents or if it was added my the irrigation board?

I also have a copy of her Death Cert.and my grandmothers Birth cert both of which state that she had no parents  which seems to confirm that she could have been an orphan at the time of immigration?

Best wishes for the holidays, to all the Nobles and their extended families. Still looking for the elusive possible NPE!

Thanks Danilo, I have had a look at that Henry. He must be part of the Ulster family somewhere. It seems there were a lot of them, unfortunately he does not seem to belong to any of the families we are looking for.

While researching my g-father's war records, I came across a "Henry Noble" that enlisted in the Spanish American War with an address of Fermanagh, Ireland. I found the records in the page. Hope that helps.

Hi Suzanne, I am the Scott Noble you mentioned earlier.  I checked into FTDNA and was looking for the Kit # 599041 but didn't find it.  Are you a member of FTDNA's NOBLE group or another group?  Would like to connect directly ... my email is ...

As is your brother, my terminal mutation is BY3194.

John and Ron, there has to be a clue somewhere. I had no idea there were so many different families, and so many with identical names. I started over 20 years ago and I'm worried I will lose the plot before I find the answers. I already have some diagnosed memory loss, and no one to take over. But today I will be gardening, life is not all about the past

Hi Susan. No match with me either. Those Irish Noble's are very difficult to trace..

Comment by John Noble on September 25, 2017 at 6:05am

Hi Susan - like Ron we share no DNA segments!

Comment by Suzanne Kier Himmelreich /Storey on September 24, 2017 at 9:25pm

Hi John, sorry, that kit # is for FTDNA. My GEDmatch # is T032264.

It looks from the DNA results that my male ancestors were Nobles, not Storeys

Thanks John, maybe someday I'll get a match or two.
