WELCOME...My name is Richard W. Hyland. However, my friends call me Rick and geneology is a passion of mine. Some say a curse - I say a passion - I love it!

I have an Irish connection dating back to my Great Grandparents, Charles Cornelius and Ellen (Temperly) Hyland (see the photo below), who came to America from Ireland in 1915 by way of Ellis Landing in New York City.

Charles Hyland and Ellen Temperly were married on February 6, 1884 in a Parochial church, in Avoca, County Wicklow, Ireland by a Father Flanagan. They moved to Santry, County Dublin, Ireland shortly after they were married - just south of where the Dublin Airport is located.

They had four children who died at birth or in infancy. However, six children survived to adulthood; their names were Catherine, Ellen Elizabeth, Charles C. Jr., Rose Ann, Mary Agnes and John Joseph.

Charles Hyland was the Stewart (foreman) on a farm in Santry, County Dublin. The Hyland family lived in one of eleven "Swiss" style homes (see the photo below). The homes were situated in a wooded area, of about 250 acres, between Ballymum and Santry Village and the local people refer to this area as the "Santry Demesne". It's history dates back to prehistoric times and its name in Irish means "Old Tribe". The property was owned by the Domville family - whom Charles was employeed by.

However, in March of 1915, at the request of Ellen's sister Jennie - who was then living in Rumson, New Jersey, Charles and Ellen Hyland along with five of their six children; Ellen along with her husband, John Stanley, Charles Jr., Rose, Mary and John left Ireland and went to Liverpool, England.

Note that the oldest child, Catherine, did not make the trip to America with the Hyland family because she had married Patrick Mcloughlin and they had a family of their own.

On March 20, 1915, the Hyland family sailed from Liverpool to New York on the "SS New York" (see the photo below). About nine days later, they all landed and were processed at Ellis Island in New York City.

I had the privaledge of being escorted around the Santry Demesne in 2004 - while visiting Ireland with my older brother John David (Dave) Hyland and our wives. A man by the name of Tommy Simpson and his cousin Noelene graciously provided us with a tour of the area. Note that Tommy and Noelene are related to Charles C. Hyland Jr's second wife Catherine Hayden.

Note that as of 2010 the Descendants of Catherine Hyland Mcloughlin were scattered. A large group continues to live in Ireland - some in the Dublin area and some in Mountshannon, Co. Clare. However, some also live in Manchester, England, Spain and both British Columbia & Nova Scotia, Canada.

The Descendants of Ellen E. Hyland Stanley were living in the Rumson, New Jesrey area.

Two of the Descendants of Charles Cornelious Jr, were known to be living in Ireland in the Dublin area, however another group was known to be in Florida.

The Descendants of John Joseph Hyland were split between the Wood-Ridge, New Jersey area - near New York City - and the Houston, Texas region along the Texas Gulf Coast.

Below is a link to the Descendant Tree of Charles C. Hyland. It takes a while to load because it contains approximately 368 individuals. Last count the children of Charles C. and Ellen T. Hyland had equated to the following: (32)grandchildren, (94)great-grandchildren, (47) great-great-grandchildren, a few great-great-great grandchildren and also numerous spouses.
