Thank you everyone for your input. I just assumed Miss I McDonald was a sibling because they were grouped together. So maybe she isn't. Thank you so much for the info on William McDonald it was excellent.   Cheers Robyn

Hello am looking for some help with McDonald children who came out from Scotland (via England) in 1922, to live at Fairbridge Farm, Pinjarra. I have researched Agnes McDonald but only just found she had two siblings Master William/Willie McDonald and Miss I McDonald. Agnes and Thomas Willis were the first couple to marry at Fairbridge Farm in 1928. Thank you.

Family History Beginners Board / Mary Anne Nowlan

Hi there,
My great-great grandmother is Mary Ann Nowlan,  B.1816 in Wicklow, Ireland and Baptised 11 Aug 1816. She married John Mannox/Monnox in Goulbourn, NSW in 1839
 ** Her birth record states parents as James Nowlan and Mary Nowlan. Possibly married in 1808 in Wicklow, Ireland
Am trying to find Mary's maiden name. I had Crawford but don't think that's correct
Mary Ann Nowlan aged 13yrs and her mother 42yrs came to Australia as Convicts. On the documents I read mother was "W" widow???
Mary Nowlan also had two sons who came out as Convicts also same time 1829. The four Nowlans are mentioned in Peter Mayberrys website.
The two sons are James Nowlan B.1809 and John Nowlan B. 1811.
They all arrived around 1829-1830 in Australia.

I cannot find what happened to Husband James Nowlan. Other researchers have him D. 1840 in Canada
I have a James Nolan/Nowlan B.1786 as a Convict in 1819 coming to Australia. (Peter Mayberry List)
Mary Nowlan (Snr) remarried in 1832 soon after as she arrived in Australia
to John English. Hoping this is same Mary Nowlan/Nolan.
Any help would be appreciated.

Maybe Jean had a normal life, married with children  and lied to her daughter that she adopted out, because she didn't want her family to know about it.
I know that happened alot back then.

Hi Mollipops thank you for that information. The biological daughter found her mother later in the years but Jean wasn't overly keen on the meeting as she said she never told anyone about the birth. She also said she had a twin sister and that she (Jean)  never married.

Hi there,
I'm trying to trace grandparents who came to Fairbridge Farm in 1910/1920. His surname is Allen and don't know the grandmothers names.  They apparently married at Fairbridge Farm where they met. Possible marriage around 1928/1931. I was adopted and cannot find my mother Jean Allen, B.1932 as she may have passed. So am trying to find my grandparents names then maybe find some siblings of my biological mother. 
Thank you Robyn Condran (on behalf of adoptee)
