I located a travel record which I believe is for Peter Cuskelly and his family in 1855 to NSW. Name is slightly different but I believe they may have used a variation after arriving in NSW -

Peter Quiskelly - 45 from Horseleap, Co. Offaly, Ireland - Parents Owen and Rose both Quiskelly dead
Elizabeth Quiskelly - 44 from Horseleap, Co. Offaly, Ireland - Parents Lawernce and Elizabeth Fox both dead - Elizabeth states the family are going to her sister Mary Daly in Armidale
Owen Quiskelly - 22
Lawrence Quiskelly - 20
Eliza Quiskelly - 18
Rose - 15
Peter - 11
Mary - 8

I did a search for Ireland and located the marriage of Peter "Quiskly" and Betty Fox on 11 Oct 1929 in Clara, Horseleap, Westmeath

Horseleap was on the boarder of Offaly and Westmeath so some records may come under one area and others in another.

Thanks Hayley.

Interesting how districts span the counties. If you ask what county Clonmel is in you would rarely get Waterford as the answer.

Absolutely Dave. I’ve worked a few cases where districts span boarders here in Ireland.

I can look some more into the Cuskelly family here in Ireland for you if needed
