Capt Anthony James Pye Molloy's son: John William Molloy was a barrister in London, not a Captain in the army.
AJP Molloy's second son Charles Robt Manners Molloy WAS a Captain in the army. This is stated in Anthony Molloy's Will (National Archives KEW)
Nobody knows the father of Capt John Molloy (b. 1789) who settled in Western Australia.
Hi, I am one of the managers of Captain Molloy's profile, and am in the process of trying to fix this mess!
I am not a descendent nor even related (as far as I know) to these Molloys, but ended up so after a little merge accident due to others ascribing erroneous parentage to him.
With respect to the whole of his family and descendants, I am trying to fix this up...
I refer all interested parties to what I consider is the most credible source at this moment, ie
Where an account by a descendent of John and Georgiana Molloy tells how his daughters Mary duCane nee Molloy and Amelia knew themselves to be the granddaughters of a William Molloy and Mary Molloy nee Connor.
I have added these parents, but am still undoing the tangle of excess parentage!
John was almost certainly born on the 5th September 1786. He was baptised at St Martin in the Fields on the 8th October 1786 (parish register). Mary du Cane and Amelia has it right. His parents were William and John Molloy. This John Molloy did not go to Harrow School in 1802 as some have suggested: this was John William Molloy, son of AJP Molloy. The Harrow School Register was corrected in 1987. Hope this helps. Nick Peacey (great great grandson)
