Dates of existence
Charles William MacCarthy, senior, was born in Fethard, Tipperary, Ireland, in 1848.
He began his medical training at the Catholic University of Medicine, Dublin in 1868, but interrupted his studies in 1870 to join the Irish Ambulance Corps during the Franco-Prussian War. He finally received his M.D. from the University of Brussels in 1884.
In 1881 he married Marion Cuddihy, a contralto singer, with whom he had three children: Maud (b 1882), Charles William, junior (b 1884) and Ernest John (b 1887).
He and his family migrated to Sydney, Australia in 1884, where he remained until his death in 1919.
