I am very well thank you. Annemarie do you speak Dutch? I speak it, although I lived for 50 years in England (Stockton on Tees), and 5 years now in Spain. In about 6 months I am going to move again, I am going to live in Columbia. Theo en Maria.
I am fine, thank you. I gather from the the time you sent this mail (9.21) you are somewhere in the U.S. Is that correct? I am currently in Spain, but in a fortnights time I will be in Columbia for two months, take a nice holliday. I am going with my girlfriend who is Columbian. I have been there before. The best wishes from Theo and Maria.
No, I only have something that was said to my brother by someonr that is Irish that "The name CAULK was pronounced CORK in CELTIC and that my ancestor must have come from Cork County" as who that person was or where he got the info I don't know. The other thery that was fielded was tht it was really a nickname for his white hair (In a swedish town) or that he was a white washer and took the old english name CAULK that ment that. The only thing I'm sure of is that his name was Issac Caulk born around 1693 and died 1748 or 1749 in Maryland. That's not very much info to go on. Thank You very much for looking for me. This may just simply be the end of the line for my hunt for caulk's.
HI, Annemarie, I think you are also friends on Facebook with my nephew Brian Healy! No, these names don't ring a bell at all. Most of our Healy ancestors weren't from West Orange, although they lived there later. They were from Orange, close by. And I don't know those names from Succasunna. We haven't lived here that long- when were your ancestors here?
my greatgrangfather came from kings county james grogan father john mother catherine born around 1814 came to australia as a convict 1836 for firearms was suppose to be married left a wife and son behind.
Noting Tim Healy's comment, permit me to add a Healy comment of my own: My double great grandmother, Lucinda "Haley" (1818-1893) wife of Ezekiel Dorland (1812-1846), was the daughter of Rachael Cotton (1785-?) and Richard Healy (1786-1824); Richard and Rachael were married April 16, 1807, perhaps in Wayne County, Ohio. I have not taken the time to trace Richard Healy's ancestry. (Just lazy I guess. But I am only four - look at my picture.)
I have put a very sweet portrait of Lucinda Haley in my book, ALL OF THE ABOVE II (p 74). I think you can view this portrait at googlebooks.
You mentioned "Jannetje van Arsdale born 1670 New Amersfoort USA daughter of Simon Janszoon van Arsdale and Pietertje Claussen, Jannetje died 1728 Staten Island New York." Thanks for the info. My family remembers Hilitie (Matilda) Van Arsdalen (1712-1774), who married Gerrett (Garret) Dorlandt (1707-1774)in Somerset County NJ on March 13, 1730/31. If you Google these names, you will get hits on my book, ALL OF THE ABOVE II, which traces my father's family back through its many lines, incl several Dutch lines.
The Dutch who moved out of Staten Island to New Jersey prior to the American Revolution (1776-1783) were able to avoid the trauma of six/seven years of British military occupation. After the Treaty of Paris in 1783, many of the Staten Island Dutch (and not just Dutch) were accused of aiding the British during the war and were threatened with property confiscation and prosecution. I have read that 25-40% of the population of Staten Island moved to Canada at that time.
The Healy's from Donoughmore :
The most prominent Healy from this area married an aristrcratic English Lady,
he took her surname, amalgamting it into his own.
He bacame HelyHutchinson, and was the Earl of Donoughmore, I believe he also became a Protestant, what people did for money then, all the other Healy's who would not give up their religion had their land confiscated.
If I can help in any way, especially with English Census or BMD records let me know
I don't know if there is any connection between our Healy's, but one story my father told me when I was a child comes to mind.
His father was killed in Action in WW1 when he was very young so this must have been related via his mother.
Apparantly he was named after Timothy Michael Healy, a famous Irish politician and later first Governor/President of The Free State of Ireland.
His brother James named after the aboves brother.
He was told that he was a distant cousin, Timothy Michael Healy was born near Mallow ?
Good story, I like to think that it is true.
I have been told that my Great Grandfather came to London from Youghal,Cork,but I do not know if he was born there.
My Great Grandmother was a Scanlon, and was born in Castleisland,Kerry
I have found four distant American cousins through DNA testing, their ancestors were living in Kerry when they left for America in the 1880's.
Through our DNA link it looks like our common ancestor was about 1780.
Because most people lived off of the land then as tenant farmers, I suppose they moved around.
