My wife's family tree has a line of Gettys in it. They originated in Dundalk Ireland and then all moved to Liverpool in about the 1840s. The head of the family was John Getty, a ship builder and commission merchant. He married Lucy Sawyer from Savannah, Georgia. All of their children stayed in Liverpool. John's next brother, William George Getty became a surgeon and apothecary and emigrated to Australia in 1852. my wife's ggggrandfather. I'm interested in hearing from anyone who has a connection with this Getty family from Liverpool.
