    Citation Text: 1: Hello Brian: My husband is also Brian Thomas Dowling. His great grandfather who we think was also Brian came to Canada from Ireland. Rumour has it County Cork. It is also thought that he worked as a station agent on the railway in Northern Ireland before he came to Canada. Does any of this ring a bell with any of your family history I have been unable to find out anything about his marriage. I believe he was married in Ireland. Thanks for any information you can give me. - Chris
    2: Hi Brian: Thanks for your reply. The information I have is very sketchy as the only uncle Brian has left does not remember very much of his grandfather. The information i have is that the Brian who left Ireland was born in County Cork and worked in Northern ireland for a railway company before coming to Canada. Floyd says that he was Station Agent at an important junction between belfast ans Londonderry. Floyd also says during the war he visited some relatives near Enniskillen at a farm called Florencecourt but thinks these relatives were on his grandmother's side. Unfortunately he doesn't know her name. Brian's grandfather Thomas was the first of this Dowling family born in
    Canada and he was born June 18, 1872. The children Thomas had were named, John Arthur, Frederick Lawrence, Floyd Douglas and Gladyne Mary May. I think they were Protestant which would be unusual for Southern Ireland wouldn't it? Hope you can make some sense of this I wish i had more time to spend on this as I want to visit Ireland someday and see where both our roots are. - Chris
    3: Hi Brian: Thanks for getting back to me. Brian's Father was Frederick Lawrence. Thomas was married to an Ella May Turner. He was the first od this Dowling family to be born in Canada. I don't know Brian's wife's name but her maiden name may have been Coulter. Does any of this make sense? - Chris

Hi Brian

Eventually I did get through to your website.

Although we go by the name Dowling, with the variety of spellings, the Gaelic name is actually Dubhlainn as far as I can tell. That's a fair bit different to Dunlaing the Co.Laois name. Quite inconvenient really, because there seems to be plenty of info about the Laois Dowlings but not much about Dubhlainn.

My 1760s Michael Dowling was a Tubbrid man. Whether he was born there or not I don't know. Certainly there are only 2 Dowling graves at Tubbrid, only one related. At Castlegrace a few miles south there are 4. One is a memorial to relatives lost at sea in 1855. The other 3 I don't know who they are, although one mentions a Michael Dowling of Tubbrid.

I had about 1800 Dowlings on BK5, until my old computer got a virus, and my backup went too! That was about 4 years ago. I was so ticked off I didn't go near the Dowlings for several years! My brother has just found an earlier disk with about 1000 names which I plan on expanding on shortly.

Any advice as the whether BK5 is the program to use or not would be appreciated.

I have about 20 A4 pages of Dowling Families which I formed up from Baptism and Marriage details I got through WHS and Hibernian Researchers. I'll send that through to you if you like. I posted it to the Tipperary List about a month ago.

There are some possibilities on the Hearth Money Rolls. Darby Dowly at Rochestown, just a few miles east of Tubbrid. John and Michael Dowell at Neddans near Ardfinnan. When I looked through Laffans book on the Hearth Money Rolls, I wasn't quite up to speed on the variety of ways to spell the name, so I probably missed some others in the area. Even so if I had got them all, there's not much chance of positively making a connection with my mob.

Hi Brian

Following are the families of Michael Dowling taken from my 'big list' of baptisms and marriages. The spelling of the surname is that used on the earliest documentation for that person.

1.
JOHN DOOLING 1789-January 1855 & Bridget Glasseen 1804-January 1855

Not 1854 as the Lancefield Victoria monument states, nor 1842 as the Castlegrace Co.Tipperary monument states. Their ship The Guiding Star left Liverpool on 9 January 1855 sailing for Australia. According to The Age newspaper of the 8th of September 1855, the ship was last spoken off the Brazilian coast at lat.16S, lon. 34W, on 12 February 1855. The ship was last sighted at about lat. 44S, lon.25W. in about April 1855 sailing into the 60 mile wide bay of a horseshoe shaped iceberg, in which it must have become entrapped, and eventually sunk.

There you have it. Once I get around to putting all the tree on disk I'll send you a copy. Ditto with the updated family, currently on 25 A4 pages.

The families left Ireland from about 1850, the first arriving in Sydney in 1852. The last to get here were my mob who arrived as late as 1875.

Thanks for your opinion on software. I'll try and track down FTM. I've got Microsoft Access, I'll have a bit of a play around with that also.

Cheers

Mick Dowling.

There are some possibilities on the Hearth Money Rolls. Darby Dowly at Rochestown, just a few miles east of Tubbrid. John and Michael Dowell at Neddans near Ardfinnan.

Hi Brian

Eventually I did get through to your website.

Although we go by the name Dowling, with the variety of spellings, the Gaelic name is actually Dubhlainn as far as I can tell. That's a fair bit different to Dunlaing the Co.Laois name. Quite inconvenient really, because there seems to be plenty of info about the Laois Dowlings but not much about Dubhlainn.

My 1760s Michael Dowling was a Tubbrid man. Whether he was born there or not I don't know. Certainly there are only 2 Dowling graves at Tubbrid, only one related. At Castlegrace a few miles south there are 4. One is a memorial to relatives lost at sea in 1855. The other 3 I don't know who they are, although one mentions a Michael Dowling of Tubbrid.

Any advice as the whether BK5 is the program to use or not would be appreciated.

I have about 20 A4 pages of Dowling Families which I formed up from Baptism and Marriage details I got through WHS and Hibernian Researchers. I'll send that through to you if you like. I posted it to the Tipperary List about a month ago.

There are some possibilities on the Hearth Money Rolls. Darby Dowly at Rochestown, just a few miles east of Tubbrid. John and Michael Dowell at Neddans near Ardfinnan. When I looked through Laffans book on the Hearth Money Rolls, I wasn't quite up to speed on the variety of ways to spell the name, so I probably missed some others in the area. Even so if I had got them all, there's not much chance of positively making a connection with my mob.

Thanks for your opinion on software. I'll try and track down FTM. I've got Microsoft Access, I'll have a bit of a play around with that also.

Hi Brian

Eventually I did get through to your website.

Although we go by the name Dowling, with the variety of spellings, the Gaelic name is actually Dubhlainn as far as I can tell. That's a fair bit different to Dunlaing the Co.Laois name. Quite inconvenient really, because there seems to be plenty of info about the Laois Dowlings but not much about Dubhlainn.

My 1760s Michael Dowling was a Tubbrid man. Whether he was born there or not I don't know. Certainly there are only 2 Dowling graves at Tubbrid, only one related. At Castlegrace a few miles south there are 4. One is a memorial to relatives lost at sea in 1855. The other 3 I don't know who they are, although one mentions a Michael Dowling of Tubbrid.

I had about 1800 Dowlings on BK5, until my old computer got a virus, and my backup went too! That was about 4 years ago. I was so ticked off I didn't go near the Dowlings for several years! My brother has just found an earlier disk with about 1000 names which I plan on expanding on shortly.

Any advice as the whether BK5 is the program to use or not would be appreciated.

I have about 20 A4 pages of Dowling Families which I formed up from Baptism and Marriage details I got through WHS and Hibernian Researchers. I'll send that through to you if you like. I posted it to the Tipperary List about a month ago.

There are some possibilities on the Hearth Money Rolls. Darby Dowly at Rochestown, just a few miles east of Tubbrid. John and Michael Dowell at Neddans near Ardfinnan. When I looked through Laffans book on the Hearth Money Rolls, I wasn't quite up to speed on the variety of ways to spell the name, so I probably missed some others in the area. Even so if I had got them all, there's not much chance of positively making a connection with my mob.

There you have it. Once I get around to putting all the tree on disk I'll send you a copy. Ditto with the updated family, currently on 25 A4 pages.

The families left Ireland from about 1850, the first arriving in Sydney in 1852. The last to get here were my mob who arrived as late as 1875.

Thanks for your opinion on software. I'll try and track down FTM. I've got Microsoft Access, I'll have a bit of a play around with that also.

Cheers

Hi Brian

Eventually I did get through to your website.

Although we go by the name Dowling, with the variety of spellings, the Gaelic name is actually Dubhlainn as far as I can tell. That's a fair bit different to Dunlaing the Co.Laois name. Quite inconvenient really, because there seems to be plenty of info about the Laois Dowlings but not much about Dubhlainn.

My 1760s Michael Dowling was a Tubbrid man. Whether he was born there or not I don't know. Certainly there are only 2 Dowling graves at Tubbrid, only one related. At Castlegrace a few miles south there are 4. One is a memorial to relatives lost at sea in 1855. The other 3 I don't know who they are, although one mentions a Michael Dowling of Tubbrid.

Any advice as the whether BK5 is the program to use or not would be appreciated.

I have about 20 A4 pages of Dowling Families which I formed up from Baptism and Marriage details I got through WHS and Hibernian Researchers. I'll send that through to you if you like. I posted it to the Tipperary List about a month ago.

There are some possibilities on the Hearth Money Rolls. Darby Dowly at Rochestown, just a few miles east of Tubbrid. John and Michael Dowell at Neddans near Ardfinnan. When I looked through Laffans book on the Hearth Money Rolls, I wasn't quite up to speed on the variety of ways to spell the name, so I probably missed some others in the area. Even so if I had got them all, there's not much chance of positively making a connection with my mob.

Hi Brian

Following are the families of Michael Dowling taken from my 'big list' of baptisms and marriages. The spelling of the surname is that used on the earliest documentation for that person.

1.
JOHN DOOLING 1789-January 1855 & Bridget Glasseen 1804-January 1855
William. d.o.b. approximately 1822 going by his age of 78 years when he died in 1900
as stated on Victorian Death Certificate No. 255.

Keating, Honor Shine. (HRC Jim Keating, Honora Shine) Priest. N. Power.
James. d.o.b. approximately 1840 going by his age of 15 years when he died in 1855
aboard The Guiding Star.

The Guiding Star. John and Bridget Dooling, sons Michael, Edmund, and James, nieces Judith Ahern, and Bridget Glasheen were all lost at sea in 1855. Not 1854 as the Lancefield Victoria monument states, nor 1842 as the Castlegrace Co.Tipperary monument states. Their ship The Guiding Star left Liverpool on 9 January 1855 sailing for Australia. According to The Age newspaper of the 8th of September 1855, the ship was last spoken off the Brazilian coast at lat.16S, lon. 34W, on 12 February 1855. The ship was last sighted at about lat. 44S, lon.25W. in about April 1855 sailing into the 60 mile wide bay of a horseshoe shaped iceberg, in which it must have become entrapped, and eventually sunk.

2.

years at death in 1893. Unmarried. Parents names Maurice Ahern, Estate

Hi Brian

Eventually I did get through to your website.

Although we go by the name Dowling, with the variety of spellings, the Gaelic name is actually Dubhlainn as far as I can tell. That's a fair bit different to Dunlaing the Co.Laois name. Quite inconvenient really, because there seems to be plenty of info about the Laois Dowlings but not much about Dubhlainn.

My 1760s Michael Dowling was a Tubbrid man. Whether he was born there or not I don't know. Certainly there are only 2 Dowling graves at Tubbrid, only one related. At Castlegrace a few miles south there are 4. One is a memorial to relatives lost at sea in 1855. The other 3 I don't know who they are, although one mentions a Michael Dowling of Tubbrid.

I had about 1800 Dowlings on BK5, until my old computer got a virus, and my backup went too! That was about 4 years ago. I was so ticked off I didn't go near the Dowlings for several years! My brother has just found an earlier disk with about 1000 names which I plan on expanding on shortly.

Any advice as the whether BK5 is the program to use or not would be appreciated.

I have about 20 A4 pages of Dowling Families which I formed up from Baptism and Marriage details I got through WHS and Hibernian Researchers. I'll send that through to you if you like. I posted it to the Tipperary List about a month ago.

There are some possibilities on the Hearth Money Rolls. Darby Dowly at Rochestown, just a few miles east of Tubbrid. John and Michael Dowell at Neddans near Ardfinnan. When I looked through Laffans book on the Hearth Money Rolls, I wasn't quite up to speed on the variety of ways to spell the name, so I probably missed some others in the area. Even so if I had got them all, there's not much chance of positively making a connection with my mob.

Cheers Mick Dowling.

This is what I have found out so far....To start I married Lester Gregg Jr on June 1, 2008 so my last name is Gregg not Hornsby. Next...My parents Darryl Thomas Dowling ( Feb. 10-1949- Feb.20-2004) and Claudia Jane Shumate Lee ( Sept. 24-1951- still alive) married Nov.18-1970 divorced March 15-1974. They had two children Tracy Lynn Dowling Gregg and my twin sister Stacy Ann Dowling Thornton on Dec.14-1971. I have found out that my dad's parents ( my grand parents) names were Thomas David Dowling Jr ( Apr.-15-1911 -June 4-1991) and Ruth Phillips Dowling Brady (not sure when she was born) but she pasted away March 21-2002. My great-grandparents were Thomas David Dowling Sr (12-27-1871 -9-27-1950) and Margret Grace Dowling (12-6-1875 -10-27-1977) she was 102 when she died....I hope you can understand this......Ha Ha. Ok. My dad ( Darryl Dowling) married Cathy Dupre and they had my sisters Suzanne Dowling McKinney (3-15-1973) and Nicole Dowling (8-13-1974) they are both still alive...Cathy also has a son named Thomas Dowling (11-12-1978) who isnt my dad's son but they were still married and together when he was born so he has his name and is family but no real Dowling blood. So..thats what I've found out so far. I will keep you updated...
Tracy.
