Related Families from the same areas
Other (probably unrelated) Bailey Lineages
This family originated in the Clogher
/ Aughnacloy area of County Tyrone, Ireland about 1750. Some descendant
lines are known in England and in Australia (New South Wales) to the present.
Note that there are some phonetic variations for "Bailey".
Bailey was born at Clogher, County
Tyrone in Ireland, c1805, the son of farmer JOHN BAILEY and his wife JANE or
AGNES KERNES. Vicky Bailey (5 January 2004) notes John as being born in 1773. Obscure references connect
John Bailey to the Battle of Waterloo; others suggest that he was killed in
the Phoenix Park massacre [or similar]. Some have Johns father as WILLIAM
In 1984, Alice Morrow of Thornton NSW received from Mrs Muriel Auld in Ireland the following:
The Bailey family have been in the (Clogher, Co Tyrone) area for at least 200 years. The church records at Clogher list a James Bailey baptised in 1794 (son of Archibald of Shane). They have been in the town of Clogher for almost 200 years as tenants of Dr Story. Most of them were blacksmiths and for many years they had a forge in town
George Bailey married Jane Armstrong at the English Church, Aughnacloy TYR Ireland on 19 May 1829. Jane was a native of Belfast ANT (according to Immigration details), the daughter born in 1808 to farmer WILLIAM ARMSTRONG ("Win") and his wife ELIZABETH.
George, 36, and Jane, 33, left home in Ireland for Australia on 12 July 1841, departing Grennoch on 22 July aboard the 344 ton barque Trinidad; they arrived as Free Immigrants in Sydney on 6 November 1841. With them were their children Margaret Bailey (aged 10 years), William Bailey (age 9 years), Eliza Jane Bailey (5 years) and Aiken Bailey (3½ years; also known as Erskine). George and Jane described themselves as literate Protestants, he a farm servant and she a house servant. As well as their own family, George and Jane also had 20-year old Roman Catholic Bridget ONeill (Biddy) in their care.
Immigration records shew that George, before disembarking the Trinidad, was engaged by Mr D L Irving of the Shoalhaven for three months employment. Mr Irving also engaged another passenger, Owen Macanally from ?Trout TYR, for 6 months. Owen, a Roman Catholic farm servant aged 28, was accompanied by his wife (who died on arrival in Sydney), daughter Rosa (4) and son John (1½). Also aboard the Trinidad was Enniskillen agriculturist John Beattie, 24, his wife Jean, 22 (daughter of Robin and Mary Cranstown) and their children John (aged 4½) and Robert (13 months) [of no known relationship to the Beatties of Kilskeery TYR].
Jane bore George a total of ten children:
Mary Ann Bailey was apparently born in
the Shoalhaven area six or eight weeks after George and Janes arrival,
and was baptised in S Philip's CoE Sydney in July 1842; her father was stated
to be a labourer residing in Kent Street, Sydney. When Charles was baptised
in 3 September 1844, George was a farmer residing at Mr Charles Whalan's Glyndwr
estate immediately east of the present Oberon township and overlooking Fish
River Creek; by George Thomas' baptism in December 1852 the family had moved
to the nearby Fish (alias Duckmaloi) River.
A story is told that about six weeks after Charles was born, Jane's friend (?sister ) Mrs Pierce became seriously ill in Redfern. George was away somewhere with the bullocks and bullockies so Jane carried infant Charles and luggage to Sydney, 130 miles east across the Blue Mountains, to see her friend. The child was then about 6 weeks old, and Jane stayed at gatehouses along the road, and with Mrs Pierce in Redfern when in Sydney. There is general support for this story, though Charles' birth and baptismal dates indicate that some details may be inaccurate.
George had two blocks of land in what is now Oberon (a pisé house still stands behind a more recent frontage) and in 1851 and 1853 purchased land on the Duckmaloi, to be named Bloomfield.
Jane Bailey née Armstrong died at Duckmaloi near Oberon NSW on 8 December 1879, aged 71 years. The informant on her death certificate named her father as William Armstrong, farmer, and her mother's maiden name to be ERSKINE, and that she had been born in Co Armagh Ireland. She was apparently unrelated to oother Armstrong families from Tyrone and Fermanagh which settled about Oberon and were neighbours.
George Bailey, farmer and grazier, died at Duckmaloi on 27 April 1882.
Patricia Blore (Bessell) [Trish Blore, 26jan2012] eMailed that her grandmother was Gertrude Beryl Bailey, daughter of William Herbert (born 1876) and Edith Rebecca Maude Seymour (born 1881); William was a son of William (born 1844) and Eliza Bellamy (born 1845), born in the Bathurst, O'Connell area; William (born 1844) was a son of William (born 1827) and Elizabeth Enright (born 1827 in Ireland). Patricia was unable to find where the last William was born and is seeking any information.
and John Parkinson Mawhood were married Macquarie Plains near
Bathurst on 17 December 1851. Margaret, born 6 April 1831 in Ireland, was the
eldest of ten children born to GEORGE BAILEY and his wife JANE ARMSTRONG. John
Parkinson Mawhood had been born in 1822 at Kingston upon Hull in England, the
son of THOMAS MAWHOOD (born 15 May 1781, died 13 December 1849) and his wife
MARIANNE LEIGH of Hull.
Margaret bore John some fourteen children, eight in New South Wales and a further six in England.

Glenis Feltham eMailed [26 December 2006]:
I am descended from George & Jane through their son John, married to Elizabeth Dugan, and their son Robert Dugan BAILEY. He was apparently married to someone who died before he then married Lucy WILLIAMS, and he had a son when he married Lucy. I haven't been able to find out her or her child's name for sure, although it is thought he was called George. Robert and Lucy's first child, Minnie Grace BAILEY was my grandmother, She was so tiny when born she was not expected to live - hence her first name. However, she lived 87 years, reared four children of her own and three step children, and has 9 grandchildren, 20 great grandchildren and now a number of great great grandchildren. … I am planning a 150th wedding anniversary reunion for the descendants of Minnie BAILEY's maternal grandparents, John Gwynne and Annie WILLIAMS née KENNY in the Oberon/O'Connell area. They settled in the area in about 1860. I hope to be able to take some time off work to look for various sites of historical family interest for the Williams and the Bailey lines.
