I am trying to trace Stephen Hoy who I believe emigrated to Australia, possibly NSW in 1965. I have found online Incoming Passenger Cards relating to the years 1962,1965,1967 and 1972 for Stephen all giving NSW as the area he was living.There are also records of Carol Ann Hoy who I believe to be Stephens wife

In 2003 Stephen posted on Genes Reunited the following message:

"Any information on Margaret Mary O'Callaghan living in Romford Essex in 1940's and early 1950's having come over from Eire".

I too have an interest in Margaret Mary O'Callaghan and by the time I replied to Stephens message he apparently was no longer a member of Genes Reunited.

My name at birth was given as Margaret and I am the illegitimate daughter of Margaret Mary O'Callaghan and I was born in 1947, I also know that Margaret had given birth to a Son a couple of years before me.

If any of this rings any bells with anybody then I would be very pleased to hear from you, I have been searching for a great number of years and time is running out.

Thank you for taking the time to read this.

Hi Wendy,

I found Stephen HOY and his wife Carol Ann living at 65 Telopea Street, COLLAROY PLATEAU NSW (a suburb of SYDNEY) on the 1980 Electoral Rolls - he was a Fireman and she was a Nurse. This is the latest ER info that is available on line - up to date ones need to be viewed at an Electoral Office somewhere.

Are you in Australia or England? I have found some S HOYs listed on the white pages on line around SYDNEY and could phone them if I had a little more information - I have sent you a friend request so that we can communicate privately - as I do not want to post any identifying information of a living person on a public site.

Hi Jenn,
That is amazing, I have been searching for a very long time and have only just come upon this site.
Is there any way you can find out Stephen or Carols date of birth,then I can be sure that they are the right people? I have only belonged to this site a few days so forgive me if I am being ignorant, I have accepted your friends request and notice that on the right hand site of the page it say "friends" do I send my message to you there?

Thank you so much for replying to me Jenn,I can't tell you how happy I was.

Kind regards


I am not even sure that the person I am looking for emigrated to Australia and to answer your question I am in England.

Hi Wendy,

From Stephen's Incoming Passenger Card that he filled in on his arrival (which I found on this NAA Site) - his DOB is 9th April 1944 and he was a Lorry Driver. He was married. His card is date stamped 28th October 1967. I couldn't find an arrival card for Carol his wife - it may simply be missing.

Now that you have accepted my friend request we can send each other information that perhaps should not be posted publicly as this search involves living people.

Hi Wendy,

In fact, Stephen was in and out of Australia 3 or 4 times between 1967 and 1972 - probably finding a place to live and a job etc., before bringing out his wife.
