Interesting to see (yet again) the inexorable link between Lalor and Dunne. Peter Lalor the famed rebel leader of Eureka Stockade was married to Alicia Dunne; my ancestor Fcs Wm Jos Breen Hanlon was a cousin of Peter Lalor tho' unsure how this is the case, BUT various memos state this (credible obituaries etc) as well I hold a piece of the relic flag of the Eureka Stockade given by Lalor to his much beloved cousin Hanlon (my grt g'father)... whatever their family ties these men were bosom buddies.


My remark is more a chat than info , sorry. I am curious to know where your line is, USA or Ireland or Australia seems the 3 main likely options.


There is a Kennedy tie-in also we have not yet nailed. A Jesuit priest Kennedy was also named as cousin of Peter Lalor in the latter's obituary in the Argus newspaper of the era.
Hi thanks for your comment :) I don't know anything really about my  family history my Nanna whom passed recently was born a Dunne then there was great gran whom was a Dunne then great great gran was a Keating, Nanna was born in Ireland, Ellen Mary Dunne and married John Joseph McMahon. we also have relatives in Philladelphia but I know nothing about these at all.

Cheers Cazz
Carolyn, I have a large data base of Lalors and Dunne in Co Laois in Ireland if that is where your nanna came from. If yes, then send me a private message with a bit more info and I can have a look,

Check out my page: Thrash 101. Might be a start for you, though I've not done a whole lot on the Dunn side of my family. Search also for "Dunn".
Sorry. Thrash 111
