Hi,

Gorman

Thomas Gorman

Gorman

I am tracing ancestry of Patrick Gorman and Eliza Sanders who emigrated from Liverpool 1834 on the ship, Briton, after marrying at St Paul's, Arran Quay, Dublin in April 1834. Parents' names James & Mary (m.n. unknown). A brother, John, emigrated with his wife, Judy and children, Mary, Anne, Bridget on The Bee, 1856. Patrick's death certificate has place of birth as County Galway. Patrick & Eliza settled firstly in Hunter Valley, New South Wales, Australia from 1834 then Dapto, New South Wales, from c. 1840. Children of Patrick & Eliza, all born New South Wales, Australia: Patrick b 1834; John b 1835; Mary b 1839; Bridget b 1841. Jill

Gorman

I am looking for living relatives to Patrick Gorman and Eliza Sanders who, it is believed, emigrated from Liverpool 1834 on the ship, Briton, after marrying at St Paul's, Arran Quay, Dublin in April 1834. Parents' names unknown; siblings of Patrick are unknown. Patrick's death certificate has place of birth as County Galway but no other details given. Patrick & Eliza settled firstly Hunter Valley, New South Wales, Australia from 1834 then Dapto, New South Wales, from c. 1840. Children of Patrick & Eliza, all born New South Wales, Australia: Patrick b 1834; John b 1835; Mary b 1839; Bridget b 1841. Patrick was a farmer. Have done extensive genealogy searches for ancestry but to no avail. Visiting Ireland October 2018; would be great to link

Gorman

I am looking for the Gorman family in northern Ireland. My grandmother and her sisters left in the early 1900s. Ellen Gorman stayed in Ireland. How can I get it touch?

Anthony Barrett

(Part 1 of 3) The Gorman name has a long history in Ireland, but now DNA and some recorded history says its origin is from the south-west region of the Emerald Island. The Gorman story [dominated by DNA tribal marker R1b-L513, Subgroup O2] can trace their beginnings to what is now County Kerry from 50 BCE. Perhaps the journey begins with the Clanna Dedad; Deda, son of Sen or Deda Mac Sin. The Gorman surname origin is possibly a branch of what will become the Dáirine [R1b-L513] who are found in south Ireland around 300 CE.

Anthony Barrett

(Part 2 of 3) According to research, the Dáirine will join with the Dál Riata of north-east Ireland and invade Scotland around 500 CE. But how could this be? Recent discoveries from DNA testing are unlocking the migration patterns of Celtic tribes as late as 800 CE to 1200 CE. The Gorman story begins in pre-history Ireland but many of his descendants will then move to Kintyre, Scotland where they and other R1b-L513 members will form the Dalriada. This line and many of his kin will then travel to Brittany, France during the Dark Ages.

(Part 3 of 3) Discover their newly found untold story and how forgotten texts bring their story back to life. From the ebook, “The Tribe Within” learn how DNA unfolds this amazing tale and if you look in the right places, how history narrates this evidence. There is another written account of their story, but it is camouflaged in smoke and myth – it will become the tales of King Arthur.
