Thank you very much Jenn and Sue. Great to get some additional information. John Carey Beaglehole's father was called John but his mother was Mary Ann Carey. Of course she may have called herself Ann or the Mary may have been missed off the death record. In the UK records she is always Mary Ann. I will see what I can find on the Dignam side- assuming his wife also emigrated? 50 years back from John's death would give an entry date to Australia possibly in early 1860, a couple of years before he married maybe.
Intriguing!

Hi again, I have managed to tie up a lot of loose ends but still struggling to find John Cary Beaglehole in passenger lists. I found a transcript that cited him on the 'Charlotte Jane in 1852 but the list I viewed did not show him. Could he have been crew? Are there crew lists?
Also Constantine Dignan died in Stawell aged 91 years in 1892 (b-1801). There is a transcript for a Constantine Degnin for 1866 Liverpool to Melbourne on the 'Dallam Tower' but gives his age as 55 years. Is this him? if so he came out after his daughters. Have not been able to find Mary Dignan's immigration record either. Feeling pretty pleased with what I have got though!

A copy  of John's Marriage certificate  in  1862  will confirm  his parents.
