SS Great Britain Passenger Lists
« on: Thursday 17 February 11 10:35 GMT (UK) »
Hi
I believe a Annie Caffery came to Australia in about 1869 on the SS Great Britain.  Would someone be able to look it up for me please and let me know if that is correct and if there is any other info on her?
Thanks
Robyn

The Great Britain seems to have arrived a couple times in Melbourne in 1869 - I'm not seeing her on either the assisted or unassisted immigration indexes at: http://www.access.prov.vic.gov.au/public/PROVguides/PROVguide023/PROVguide023.jsp on any ship, though.

Do you have a bit more info about Annie? e.g. how old would she have been, are there any other names she might have been using, who might she have been travelling with, where in Australia she settled, etc.

Jorose, it looks like Annie married James KENNEY in 1872 in Perth, WA, and died there in 1889 aged 37.

Hi romak,

Do you have her death certificate?  Though not always completely accurate, it should give info on the time she lived in each state and at least give you an idea of whether she might have arrived directly into WA.

Did you know that there is a good chance that she had a sister Elizabeth with her?

Thanks for replying.
Annie Teresa Caffery was born about 1852 and no I haven't got her death cert yet as I can see on the WA website that it doesn't include her parents names or where she was born.   Her parents were Patrick and Catherine and I think he was a grocer.
Regards
Robyn

Hi Robyn. I am replying to a PM email from you....for some reason I can't reply so am doing it this way. I don't think your Patrick is related to my branch of the family. At least not that I am aware of. My Patrick was married to Bridget and lived in Cavan. My direct link is James Edward Caffrey, who came to America about 1830, first in Philadelphia and then in San Francisco. Wish I could help.

I have a book with the names and details of all the passengers on the SS Great Britain between 1852-1875.

There is only one entry with the surname you're researching and that is:

John Caffery, age 21, Irish, Labourer.

He sailed from Liverpool to Melbourne, leaving on 15th Dec 1867. The journey took 57 days and there were 512 passengers on board.

Probably of no help to you but then again, it is the same surname and may be. :)
Best wishes HL
