Dear Marie Christine

Easter Greetings and thank you so much for your reply. I am quite thrilled to see there is a definite O'Sughrue/Mauritius connection. Since I posted my first message, I have new information. I contacted the St John's Maritime Museum in Newfoundland Canada, for information on a W Skydeberg, who I believe to be Wilhelm, my husband's great grandfather. In the index of Mariners where I found his surname listed, another surname caught my eye, O'Suzhrue. I thought this must be a mispelling of O'Sughrue and requested the info on this person too. When it arrived recently it was for a Desiré O'Suzhrue born in Mauritius in 1850/1. I am sure there must be some connection here. A coincidence that Desiré O'Sughrue and W Skydeberg were both mariners in Canadian/US ports and Skydeberg eventually settled in Mauritus? Did they meet, or know each other? Desiré is a French christian name, definitely not Irish, but I do know that O'Sughrue is of Irish origin. I should love to know the name of the Mauritian wife of the O'Sughrue that went to Mauritius and then proceeded to South Africa. I shall see if I can trace any info on the family here in SA. Chaperon is an old Mauritian surname. Do you still live in Mauritius? If you have any other info, especially names, I would love to receive it and try to discover the Skydeberg/O'Sughrue connection. I have a CD of cemeteries in Mauritius and there are 8/9 O'Sugrue's listed with dates. Earliest date of death is 1831. If you would like more info please contact me on
Kind regards Karen
