Apologies for the delay in responding but am having HUGE issues with Rootschat.

Very much appreciate all your replies.  Have tried to reply to each individual message but have been unable to do so.

Stay safe.

Again very much appreciated receiving your comments.  According to the records I have found on line son David was born in 1845 or 1847, Margaret was born in 1851 and a son Thomas in 1853 all born in Scotland.  Five other children were born in Victoria, Australia.

I realize dates can be incorrect and I do wish your information was correct but I doubt it.

Again, thank you and stay safe.

Australia / Smith, David and Elizabeth
« on: Tuesday 17 August 21 17:00 BST (UK)  »
Searching for the arrival date in Victoria, Australia of  David and Elizabeth Smith and children David, James Stewart, Margaret Watson and Thomas.  Believe they arrived between 1852 and 1855.

David born in Lanarkshire in 1822 and Elizabeth in Lanarkshire in 1828.

David died in Creswick, Victoria in 1868 and Elizabeth in Brunswick, Victoriia n 1911.

Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

Mega apologies for the lateness in my response, but I very much appreciated receiving the information.

Stay safe.


Mary/Maria Hedican/Hedigan born 1847, County Clare, Ireland.  On her marriage certificate in Australia her father is listed as MICHAEL and mother as MARGARET McNAMARA.

On the birth certificate of my grandfather it says MARIA HARPER formerly REICHEU (we do not understand this name or reference).

On the marriage certificate of my grandfathers it has her name listed as MARIA HADIGAN.

On Mary/Maria's death certificate the name of her father was MARTIN HEDIGAN and her mother MARY HEDIGAN maiden name Mary McNAMARA.

All very confusing.  Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Researching Preston family father William mother Jane Fry who lived in the Parish of Tagshinny near Ballymahon, County Longford.  Have been advised that William was a 40 shilling freeholder and a tenant of A. Hamilton, Esquire, Barony of Tullyvallan.  Sons William and Thomas and daughter Margaret went to Victoria, Australia in 1850.

Would appreciate any information.

Have been unable to find Mary's baptism or her parents marriage.

Trying to find information regarding the Hedican/Hedigan family from County Clare in the 1840's, 1850's and 1860's.  Martin Hedican had a daughter Mary/Maria in 1847 when he was 18; wife/mother was Mary McNamara.  We believe they lived in or near Kilmacduane, Kilrush area.

Have found a lot of conflicting information.  Would appreciate any information.
