The Moylan family
My own branch of the Moylan family came from county Kilkenny in
Ireland, and is probably unrelated to the Moylans from other counties.
I have other ancestors who came from various places around Ireland and
southern Scotland. This page is devoted to my own family history
research, but there are also links to other Moylan pages I've found on
My own family
Other sites with family trees
Here are the relevant web sites I know about so far. I haven't yet found connections between the people mentioned below
and my own family, and the indications so far are that there are none to be found.
Moylan's site. If I've
interpreted his information correctly, Ken
is descended from someone who migrated from Galway to Massachussetts
(USA) some time in the early 1900s. Ken has also collected a huge
wealth of information about other Moylans. This used to be an extensive
and informative web site, but I haven't been able to reach it for a
while now; I suspect that it no longer exists. I am now trying to use
reconstruct a mirror
of this site.
Sean is a descendant of Michael Moylan who came from Co Clare in 1837
to settle in Ballina (NSW, Australia). He's collected information on
quite a few of his relatives, most of whom live in Australia. The site
has some interesting historical chronicles.

Monaro (NSW, Australia) pioneers.
Family Website of Tom Moylan and
Olivia Murray of Dublin. The
Moylan information here is not very extensive, although there's a
wealth of information about Olivia's family.
whiba website includes
information about Moylans who came from Quin, Co Clare, and settled in
the Maitland (NSW) region.
This has nothing to do with the Moylan family, but it's as good a place as any to put it on my web site. The Mathematics
is a project run by some American mathematicians to trace
back chains of researchers and their supervisors in mathematics
and related areas. From this I have worked out my research heritage.

If you used a search engine to find me, you might have seen pointers to
pages in the domain newcastle.edu.au. Those pages no longer exist,
so don't be surprised if they lead nowhere. It takes search engines a while to "forget"
about obsolete pages.
