John and Eleanor (Ellen) Daly, were from Strabane, County Tyrone, according to their immigration records. They were Government Bounty immigrants brought to Port Phillip in the colony of New South Wales (Australia) on 21 January 1840 by Mr John Marshall of London, on the colonial secretary's authority of his agents in Sydney. They came out on the ship "John Bull". John's age was given as 24 and Ellen's as 25. He was listed as a labourer; she a nursemaid. Neither could read or write. He was Roman Catholic, she was Protestant.

John's death certificate in 1874 says he died in the Borough of Brunswick, County Bourke, Victoria (this is now a suburb in Melbourne called West Brunswick). His occupation was farmer and Daly's farm is mentioned in local newspapers in Brunswick in the 1890s. There is a street named for the Daly family (Daly Street) in West Brunswick and is where the family home was situated. John died at 8:30pm on 21 April 1874, age 60 years. This gives a birth year of about 1813-1814. According to the death certificate, with information provided by John's son, John James Daly, John's parents were John Daly, a farmer, and Elizabeth Daly, maiden name Flanagan. John was buried in the Melbourne General Cemetery on 23 April 1874. He'd been in the colony 33 years.

John Daly was married to Eleanor at St Columb's (Parish/District) in Co. Derry on 1 Oct 1839 (marriage record shows inferred date and month) in Londonderry, Ireland at the age of 26. She was 28. Eleanor's maiden name was shown as McCleary - her parents were James M'Cleary, a book binder, and Elizabeth, maiden name Anderson. She was born in 1811 in Londonderry, according to her death certificate (which then differs from the immigration record). Eleanor died at 1:45pm on 20 September 1889, age 78 years. She was buried in the Melbourne General Cemetery with her husband on 22 September 1889 in the Roman Catholic Compartment Q, Grave no. 169. She was a colonist of 49 years.

Sept. 6, 1870 - The Philadelphia Inquirer newspaper Death Notices "HOLMES - At Dungannon, County Tyrone, Ireland, on the 13th ult., Valentine HOLMES, Esq., formerly for many years a merchant and resident of the city of Philadelphia; well known and highly esteemed by many friends and acquaintances."

Ship passenger lists show that Valentine Holms, age 20, merchant, origin Great Britain, arrived at the port of New York in 1820 on the ship "Robert Burns" from Londonderry, Ireland. He was naturalized in Philadelphia in 1832. The 1850 Philadelphia, PA census shows Valentine Holms, 40, merchant, born Ireland; and Glasgow Holms, 20, merchant, born Ireland, in a large household of different individuals ("Butler's House" operated by Samuel Harrison).

The book, "History of the Friendly Sons of St. Patrick and of the Hibernian Society for the Relief of Emigrants from Ireland, March 17, 1771-March 17, 1892" by John Hugh Campbell (viewable on Google Books), has excellent short biographies of Valentine Holmes -- who served as U.S. Consul at Dublin, Ireland -- and his brother John, who were born in Strabane (Co. Tyrone). The articles also mention their father JOHN HOLMES, said to be a native of "Buncrana, Ireland" (which is in Co. Donegal).
