Australia / COMPLETED:"Purfield" in Muswellbrook
« on: Friday 02 September 16 13:32 BST (UK)  »
I am interested in locating "Purfield" Muswellbrook. I believe it is a residence/property and not a suburb.

John and Grace Morrison are said to have lived at "Purfield" in Muswellbrook, New South Wales, in 1874.

I don't need any information on the folk themselves.


These photos were taken in Australia

I am wondering if anyone could suggest a year/s for the photo with the girl in the short skirt. The older woman - Grace - died in1923. Could the girl be a daughter born in 1876? or a granddaughter born 1897?

I have added a photo of a granddaughter and a daughter (woman in the hat).

Ross & Cromarty / COMPLETED:Point Canten - ? Contin
« on: Monday 01 August 16 02:58 BST (UK)  »
Good morning from Australia.

I have a possible ancestor Margaret Cameron, daughter of Kenneth and Christina/Christie/Christy/Christian who arrived in NSW in 1839.

It is said that she is from Point Cantin. I'm certain it should be Contin, but what could the Point be.

Waterford / Arthur Leary/O'Leary and family born 1819
« on: Sunday 03 July 16 14:13 BST (UK)  »

After years of seeking and not finding I may have just found a helpful clue.

1851: I have Arthur Leary in King St, St Georges East, Middlesex, England on the 1851 census.

His information is: Widower age 32 born 1819 and a carpenter. He is the cousin of someone in the household, those being the Donovan's and the McLean's.

1861: On the '61 census he is married to Johannah (nee Murphy) , aged 39 born 1822, and they have daughter Mary 15 born 1846 in Ireland, with them. I have now just found Catherine Leary visiting elsewhere aged 18 born 1843 in Waterford, Ireland.

I believe Mary and Catherine to be daughters from the first marriage of Arthur.

I also can't find a marriage in England for Arthur and Johanna, so I think he may have gone back to collect the girls and marry Johannah.

Arthur and Johannah had their first child, in England in 1953.

Any information on would be greatly appreciated.
