James Stephen Nolan, son of James Nowlan and Ellen Dowling of Co. Kilkenny, was born in 1851 and emigrated to Australia in 1875/76. He and two other brothers, Edward James and Stephen Patrick, sailed from London on the ship Gauntlet on 18-Sep-1875 bound for Moreton Bay, Australia. Before reaching final destination, sometime in January/February 1876, James Stephen got off at Robe, South Australia, perhaps because a step-sister, Mary, married to an Otto DOPKING, already lived there. Stephen Patrick may also have gotten off at Robe but ultimately made his way to Queensland. A third brother, Edward James appears to have only alighted at Brisbane.

A 4th brother, named John (d. 1944?), apparently stayed in Ireland and married a Kate Nolan, no relation, and they had no children. apparently John Nolan died in 1944.

James Stephen Nolan married Ellen “Nellie” Drewham/Drew at Williamstown, Victoria. He first worked in the silver mines at Zeehan and then ultimately moved to Hobart where the family lived at 10 Tasma Street North. James died on 24-Oct-1925 and was buried in Cornelian Bay Cemetery in Hobart.
