John O'CONNELL [Parents] was born in 1847 in Lahardane, Ballybunion, Co. Kerry. He died on 3 Jun 1930 in Melbourne. John was in a common law marriage with Sarah BAWDEN.

Other marriages:
HARRINGTON, Bridget

John emigrated to Australia in late 1875, settling in Melbourne, and I am told his wife, Bridget, did not accompany him. However, an obituary of Bridget's sister Ellie (1931) mentions a sister, Mrs. O'Connell, of Australia.

~According to family lore John was "a bit of a bounder". He had the bailiffs after him when he left Ireland and it appears he abandoned Bridget. It is believed that he never married Sarah Bowden with whom he had two children in Australia.
