Hi again,
I have been going through my paperwork and found the certificate of freedom for James Murphy I got from the NSW state archives. It is for the the James born 1816, it states he was born in Bardon (I think this should read Bandon) County Cork. You might already have this too, not sure if this will assist you with tracing his parents, maybe there are church records for that parish, Irish records are not easy to locate

Hi,
I have a copy of the original transcript of that James Murphy’s baptism, dated 14th October, 1816. It says the parents are Tim Murphy and Ellen Sullivan, and the sponsors are Denis Murphy and Mary Cotter.  Because of the date 1816 I thought this might be the James Murphy who arrived age 14 on the Andromeda in 1830, not one of the two who arrived on the Lonarch. 
Ellen Murphy the sponsor for their son John could be a relative, there are a few Ellen Murphy’s on the convict lists, maybe she followed in her brothers footsteps

Hi,
I have just come across one of your roots chat scavenger hunts from May 2010, regarding a very elusive James Murphy, the opening information has listed the children of James Murphy and Catherine Kelleher aka Callagher, Callaghan, Higgins, Sheehan, Smith and Walker, my great great grandfather Philip 1837-1877 has been left off that list. I was wondering if there has been any more information on James as I have joined the queue in trying to find out who he was, including one who arrived on the Andromeda 2 in 1830. Regards

Hi mosher, I found the information on ancestry.com. Twelve different people had posted this James Murphy, born in Cork in 1816, and have Catherine Sheehan as his wife, with her also marrying a Phillip Smith and John Walter,  the information also matched their children's names to my list. You might already know what I do about Anastasia (1847-1939) she was married to John Duncan Gow, children Catherine (1873-1951) and James (1875-1875), then married Michael Kelly.  She then had a relationship with Percival Cochrane, who died in a mining accident in Mitta Mitta in 1890, they had three children Sarah (1879-1954), Percival (1881-1937) and Elizabeth (1885-1961), she is stated as being Percival's widow when he died.
I have found some interesting stories in a book Pioneers of the Omeo Plains, by Jane Vince Pendergast, which mentions John and Michael Murphy and their uncles Thomas and Michael Sheehan (Sheean) and John Higgins, Catherine's brothers. The Sheehan's father died when he was only 35 and their mother Matilda married James Pendergast.

James Murphy, Anastasia's father arrived in Australia on the convict ship Andromeda II in 1830, aged 14.  He was an errand boy tried in Limerick for pick pocketing, and sentenced to 7 years deportation On his arrival he was sent to Carter's Barracks, and received his ticket of freedom on 13th March, 1838. James married Catherine, who was also know with the surnames, Kelleher, sometimes spelled Callaghan, Higgins and Sheehan (Shean). Catherine arrived in Australia aged 2 on the convict ship Canada IV with her mother Mary Kelleher (Sullivan) from Cork. Anastasia was my great, great grandfather Philip's sister.
