My O’Connor ancestry descends from Thomas O’Connor, of Co. Wicklow who married Ellen O’Connor, of Co. Limerick.  Thomas married Ellen in Portland, Vic.  Their descendants lived in Victoria and South Australia.

Thomas was the son of James and Mary O’Connor or Connors and Ellen was the daughter of Timothy O’Connor/Connors and Margaret Condon.

Ellen came to Victoria with her sister, Catherine, and brother, John and his wife, Elizabeth, on the “British Empire”.  Another sister, Margaret, arrived at a later date.
