25th Mar 18 09:53:31 gary porter My ancestor Richard Byrne was imprisoned on ''the Lively'' and transferred to the Minerva and travelled with JosephHolt to Australia.He was obviously known to Joseph Holt as he was one of the ''resolute men and true'' chosen by Holt to fight the pirates . Richard is listed as aWicklow United Irishman in Wicklow gaol although resident over the border at Calverstown ,Kildare . He was arrested near Wicklow and was named in the Banishment Act 1798. I am hoping to find any more connection withJoseph Holt

25th Dec 15 23:04:54 Ian Robertson Hello yet again. I'v just read all the too-ing and fro-ing in 2007 re the Harmans. Does anyone know what became of Constance (Harmon) Fowler? If someone still has her email address I'd appreciate it if they could contact her and seek permission for me to contact her. Many thanks
25th Dec 15 22:27:14 Ian Robertson Hi again,
There does not seem to be a "search" feature for this chat room. Am I missing something?
25th Dec 15 22:12:12 Ian Robertson I'm researching one of the Rebels transported on the "Tellicherry" in 1805.His name was Lawrence Harman (although there are variations in spelling). I have traced him up to 1821, when he is shown on the Convice Register as "Emancipated" and a servant of Joshua Holt (Joseph Holt's son). I'm wondering if there are any primary sources which mention in detail Joshua Holt's life or recollections, and if anyone can point me towards any further records that there may be of the Joshua Holt household.
31st Aug 15 18:44:58 Lionel Fowler Hi Heather, It is important that you validate your chats before submitting them to our chat rooms otherwise it skews our family research with incorrect entries with false assumptions. Your Holt enquiries must be made in The General's Chat Room as you have done with other entries.
Thomas Holt was one of Joseph Holt's brothers. If you read our articles you will learn that Joseph's daughter was left in the care of the La Touche family who paid the passage of his wife and elder son. They sailed with Joseph aboard the 'Minerva' as a political prisoner.

29th Dec 14 09:26:22 Lionel Fowler Welcome Alan, Thank you for your informative chat, however it is in the wrong chat room!
if you wish to progress your Holt Family Research please request it in The General's Chat Room. I am sure that we would all be interested to learn of both Walter Henry Holt and his aboriginal partner, Maggie, and their descendants. Some of our Holt descent chatters may be able to help with your family research.
1st Dec 14 11:55:37 alan holt G'day I trying to find some family history regarding my Holt surname. I'm interested in doing a documentary of my Australian History of the Holt name and find it's connections to the Irish side. Particularly the history of the name in Ireland. Some of the genial birth history from great grandmother paternal side is a bit hazy as she was a full blood Aboriginal woman living under an act that had many implications and controls of her movement, relationships, lifestyle etc. As far as I can asceratin at the present that My Great Grandmother Maggie had a child to Walter Henry Holt. Walter was a land owner and apparently a Mayor of Bauhinia Shire Council around the Springsure area of Central QLD. Any comments or info would be appreciated. REgards Alan
