Thomas Quilty

Ann Hayes

Thomas Quilty was born in 1786 in Shanagolden Co.Limerick.

Ann Hayes was born abt1799 in Shanagolden Co.Limerick.

They married in 1817 Limerick.

Thomas and Ann arrived per "Aliquis" 16/3/1839 with Children Thomas (20 Carpenter) Mary 16, Johanna 14, Margaret 12, Michael 10, Ann 7 and Edward 7months.

Their eldest daughter Ellen had married Jeremiah Kennelly 5/10/1838 just before they left and did not accompany them.

On arrival in Australia the family made their way to Gobarralong area where they appeared to stay for a few years before settling on the Gilmore Creek.

Thomas later bought blocks in Tumut after its relocation following the disastrous floods of 1852. His assets provided him with a comfortable living in his old age.

In electrol roll of 1859 Thomas Jnr appeared as a freeholder at Bombowlee and younger boys Michael and Edward held licences of the Tumut and Woolpack Inns respectively.

All except Michael remained in the area for the rest of their lives marrying into local families.

Margaret married Robert Downing (1st).

Johanna's first husband was Timothy O'Mara from Tipperary who commenced the first public house The Woolpack together with his brother-in-law Robert Downing.

He bought Rosebank estate, held a squatters licence (partnership with hisbrother-in-law John McNamara) for 40,000 acres at the head of the Gilmore and owned 1090 acres at the junction of the Goobraganda and Tumut rivers. On Timothy's death 1860, Johanna married John Henry Cassidy, an American miner.

Her brother had already taken over the licence of The Woolpack but died aged 23 following combined effects from a fall off a horse and a fist fight in which he was knocked out.

Following a letter from Thomas (1st) in 1851 Ellen and her husband Jeremiah Kennelly and five children joined the family and had a further 7 children in Australia, they settled in Lacmalac where Jeremiah donated land for the first school. Although Jeremiah and Ellen were late in emigrating, the discovery of gold at Lacmalac is credited with assisting them to early prosperity.

In the late 1850's the Quilty family headed the list of donors to the fund to build Tumut's first catholic church.

Thomas Quilty died 5/16/1870 Tumut and Ann Quilty died 1/2/1881 Tumut - Both buried in the Pioneer Cemetery.
