Ellen CONLON nee ALLEYN death certificate

Again thanks to Terry Quinane, this is the death certificate of Ellen CONLON nee ALLEYN.

Ellen arrived in Botany Bay (rather than Sydney apparently) on the 'Thetis' in 1850 with her family. The family name was entered as 'Allen' which is probably how it was pronounced, but in both Ireland and Australia it was generally written as ALLEYN or ALLEYNE.

I know little of the ALLEYN family in Australia. Ellen was five when she arrived in 1850, born in Golden, Tipperary Ireland. Her father Samuel died in 1854 (V1854492 143/1854 and V18541855 119/1854) and her mother Mary married the following year to Michael O'LOUGHLIN at St Mary's Cathedral, Sydney. Ten years later Ellen marred Michael Joseph CONLON at the same church, and they had 11 children fro 1866 to 1891, first registered in Sydney then Glebe, where Michael had established a pottery on Broughton St. Only three of their children survived to adulthood and married - all daughters.

Ellen died on 5th March 1902 at 20 Broughton St Glebe. The cause of death was given as 'Hepatic Cirrhosis' and she was buried at Rookwood.

I have plenty more information and would love to exchange information with you. When I was in Sydney recently I found William Alleyn's headstone and have photos, along with lots of CONLON headstones including Ellen and Ann ALLEYN, who both married CONLONs.
