Hi this is my first posting and was hoping like crazy that someone could help me. Firstly, I'd just like to say that l think everyone connected to an Irish Palatine is somehow related.
Okay my ancestor is Matilda Fitzell who immigrated to Australia.
Her parents were Adam Fitzell who married Anne Heavener and then later Maria Jones. (Anne died in childbirth).
Adam and Ann had a truck load of kids as well as Adam and Maria. Hence why most of the kids went to Australia, NZ, Canada and US.
Adam is the one driving me crazy, as there are so many Adam Fitzell's l dont know his parentage.
I can tell you that he married Ann Heavener on the 4th Nov 1856 Chapel Russell, Limerick.
Ann Heavener's parents were John Heavener and Lillias (or Lily) Cooper. John was b 4 Jun 1795 his parents were William Heavener (c 1750) and Mary Seale (c 1760). William's father was John.
Lilly's parents were John Cooper and Ann Bovenizer (b1766). Ann's parents were Michael Bovenizer (c 1734) and Barbara Piper from Killenheen area.
If any of these names ring any bells to someone could you please help me out. I would be happy to share any info.
