1872TimothySullivanWelcome to the family history website of Timothy Sullivan and his Australian descendants.  Timothy Sullivan: 

  • Was born in Baltimore, Ireland. in 1815.
  • Went to sea at the age of 15 in 1830.
  • Married a Cornish girl in St Ives Cornwall in 1841.
  • Migrated with his family to South Australia in 1859. 
  • Died and was buried in Moonta, South Australia, in 1887.

The website will eventually contain articles about Timothy and the many descendants identified so far. Plus, there will be articles about the history of the Sullivan clan, and articles about particular features of our Sullivan family, like service in the two World Wars.

There are still mysteries to uncover, missing years and missing persons to be found, and stories to be told. So we look forward to more contributions from descendants and others to help complete this family history.

We hope you enjoy the story!
