Jack O'Loughlin From Australia. Aboriginal as well not sure of DOB but is great great grandfather

Dermott O’Carroll Mullin

My O’Loughlin family lived in the Port Elizabeth/Uitenhage area of South Africa’s Eastern Cape province. Siblings were Joseph, Thomas, John, May (Mary?), Margaret. Joseph, the eldest (b.1897 d.1969) married my father’s sister, Norah Mullin (b.1898 d.1958), in 1935. The O’Loughlin siblings’ parents, John and Margaret (nee Canavan, also settled from Ireland - Waterford) died in Uitenhage late 1930s; believe his parents (siblings’ paternal g.parents) settled in South Africa from County Clare, Ireland (date not known). Last of the siblings named above died in 1970s. Would be grateful to learn any particulars that may be known (names, family relationships, date(s), name of vessel, ports of departure and arrival, etc) of that O’Loughlin family’s S.African settlement and of it’s more immediate (pre-settlement) Irish history. Also anything known on the Margaret Canavan family’s settlement and immediate pre-settlement Irish history. There is evidence that she may have had a brother, or close relative, George. Thank you.
