I can't believe it is so difficult to find even my mothers grandfather! My mother is a Doyle (1 of 9) and they are related to the McCanns, Malloys, Fitzgeralds, Sheas, and she married a Foley-can't find them either and I find the people of that generation to be incredibly secretive-did
You? My mother is 97 and still going strong. Great website!

How did you find my site? Looked up Roche Name
What family names are you interested in? ROCHE
What countries are your ancestors from? IRELAND
Comments:
Hi Great to find another site with the name ROCHE.
My great great grandfather was JOHN ROCHE m RUTH WHEELER in Ireland, they came over to Victoria, Australia on the ship THAMES with one young son called John also. Ruth was apparently born in Belfast and her father was James Wheeler who was an accountant and her mother's name was Mary Anne McBride. When they got to Australia they went to Colac, and then went to New Zealand where they had a hotel at a place called Hayes Lake near Queenstown. The next i have is that Ruth died in Perth in 1902 aged 56 yrs. Am trying to locate all their children. Am having a bit of luck as i have found quite a few. Apparently John was a Stone Mason and he was born at Clonmel, on the shipping records it states the family came from Tippiary, Ireland. Have you come across any of these names in your research, and where do you come from. They landed in Australia on 11/10/1855.
It also states on the shipping records that JOhn was 27 and Ruth was 19 yrs. They could both read and write. So it appears that they were educated. Anyway thats enough of my raving. Hope to hear from you if anything rings a bell. I myself think that maybe John had a relation over here and thats why they came to Australia.
Bye for Now happy hunting, Regards Leonie
