My thanks to you all.  I have been trying to find this info for over a month and you guys have answered it so quickly.
Thanks Merlin I now have another avenue to follow with Annie's sister.  Oh and I don't do mornings either!
Regards
Robyn

Elizabeth CAFFREY married Edmund William READ at Perth in 1874.  They had three children, Florence Ada in 1875 (infant death), Bertha Naomi in 1878, married Charles SHEPHERD and died 1966, and Annie Agnes born c1881 (where?), married James DOHERTY and died 1943.

Edmund READ remarried to Mary Ellen GUERIN in Victoria in 1888, so I wonder if this is Elizabeth's death:

1886
Port Melbourne, Victoria
Elizabeth  Ann READ
Aged   37
Father: Pat CAFFRAY
#14016

Edmund and Mary Ellen had two sons in Victoria and then returned to WA. When Edmund died in 1937, his obit mentions a nephew J. KENNY.

Mary Ellen's death notice:

The READ/CAFFREY marriage cert might confirm a relationship between Annie and Elizabeth, and if they are sisters then Elizabeth's death cert might provide more info.

I've downloaded Elizabeth Read's death cert.  It says her second name is Ann and that she was born in Dublin with her parents as Patrick, a contractor, and mother illegible first name and 'not known' surname.  I'm not totally sure that she is Annie's sister and may get her marriage cert to check.
Would you be able to tell me where the references like #Acc115/110 that Merlin mentioned came from?
Thanks
Robyn

I see that Hampshire lass has information about passenger lists for the S S Great Britain, and wondered if a look up could be done for a Domenica Righetti who arrived in Melbourne 2nd May 1861. She was from Switzerland, but was probably living in England prior to her voyage. Any info would be good although I guess it would be difficult finding any ancestors for her.

The person listed on the Great Britain manifest in 1861 is recorded as Domenico RIGGATTI, a male farmer aged 21.

Your Domenica's marriage certificate should give her age and birthplace and name both her parents.

Extracted from Metropolitan Cemeteries Board of WA website:
A James KENNY (sic) died 23 January 1936, age 90 years, at Fremantle and was buried in Fremantle Cemetery, RC Area, Mon CC, Gravesite 0555. OF SPECIAL INTEREST is the Grantee (purchaser of plot?) was noted as a James KENNEY (sic). The deceased may be your James KENNEY as his age at death places his DOB circa 1846 which would make him about 26 years old at 1872.

No my great grandfather died in 1902 and my grandfather in 1948 (I think).  There's quite a few families of Kenny's but we're not related to any that we know of.

Thank you for the information on the Righetti family-that certainly looks like the family I am after.
