New Zealand SMIDDY'S
William Smiddy and Abina Hearly (also recorded as Alice Hurley) from Glanworth in Cork
Hi Ann
I am a little unsure of which gentleman you wish to know if I am related to
or not? but I have had a look at your site and could not make an immediate
connection.
I am descended from a William SMIDDY and Abina HEARLY (also recorded as
Alice HURLEY) from Glanworth in Cork and they had two children that I know
off and both came to New Zealand at a young age and when the son married at
17 he signed a declaration that there was no one in the colony to give
consent to his marrage so his parents either had died before 1876 or he came
out with his sister (the same was true of the girl he married so they all
may have come together) with out them.
The eldest was 
Michael Smiddy (b c1859 in Glanworth d 24 Aug 1885 in
Dunedin NZ) 
married Kate Sheehan in Oamaru NZ 18 Mar 1876 
Their children were - 
Mary Smiddy (b 1877) married Mr Baillie (d 13 Oct 1963)
Abina Smiddy (b 1879 d 1881)
Kate Smiddy b 1882 married Ernest Forbes 1914
William Smiddy (b 1884) married Mary Cecilla Dwyer in 1906 
and had Mary Catherine Smiddy born 1906, 
William Gregory Smiddy born 1907 
and Phillis Eileen Smiddy born 1909.
The second child of William and Abina was Mary Ann Smiddy born c1860 in
Glanworth and died 15 Aug 1948 in Gisborne NZ and married William McIlwraith
in Oamaru on 18 Sep 1878 and had five children one of which was my great
great grandmother.
I am afraid that is all the information I have on the NZ Smiddy's and I have
not been able to find out any more on William and Abina.
I will keep an eye on your home page,
all the best
