Thank you so much for spending your own time and looking up the inquest information at the SRO.

It is really appreciated.  Shame there are no inquest records available for us.   :(

To Everyone,

Isn't this just so frustrating!!!!   ???   :-\

I thank you all very sincerely for all your efforts.

To answer a few of the questions that have come up:
    1.  I don't have any idea of Christopher's occupation.  According to the inquest information at the time of his death he didn't leave any assets.     :-\
    2.  Re the Kingswood Reading Rooms  -  I don't live anywhere near there (Qld actually)   :(
    3.  I don't have any of the BDM certificates for Christopher or his wife Mary     :(
    4.  I did put a post on the Ireland Board to see if anybody could track down a marriage for me, but nothing has turned up yet.     :(
 
There is so much conflicting information and nothing seems to tie in together nicely.  What  we do know for sure though is that Christopher and Mary were in the Port Macquarie area since at least 1844 (maybe even earlier) when their daughter Jane was born.  Maybe Christopher and Mary weren't convicts at all???? 

I think to move forward what we need is:
    -  to get our hands on more of the inquest information
    -  someone who visits the Kingswood Reading Rooms to do some research for us there
    -  I will have to save up and try and think about getting death certificates for Christopher and Mary to see if they can shed any light, or even the Birth certificates of a couple of their children.

I welcome any further information anybody can find.

Kind regards, AB

Ireland / Help with a marriage record please - McNAMEE or RYAN (convicts to Australia)
« on: Wednesday 01 January 14 01:38 GMT (UK)  »
Hello there,

I am trying to confirm the marriage of the following people between 1830 and 1837  (before they were transported to Australia as convicts).

Christopher John McNamee to Mary (surname unknown)  or
Christopher John Ryan to Mary (surname unknown).

Mary's surname MIGHT be Dowling or Doyle or something similar.

I don't know where they were married but Dublin, Limerick or Westmeath could be possibilities.   Their ages would have been in late teens or in their 20's.

Any help would be VERY appreciated.


Thank you.
