Brophy
« on: Thursday 27 September 07 16:02 BST (UK) »
I am looking for any information on Patrick Brophy who married Mary Anne (not sure of her maiden name).  One son that I know of is, is Thomas Elliott Brophy baptised in Cape Town South Africa in 1887.

I would appreciate any help as I am not sure whether Patrick was born in South Africa or Ireland.

Also does anyone know when the Irish started leaving for South Africa and was that the final destination of the ship or did it go on to Australia or somewhere else.

If you go to familysearch website or eGGSA. org (which is website for South Africa records), you can search for everything to get for Brophy family. There are also family trees on both the familysearch & Wikitree websites both of which are free. On eGGSA website it looks like various Brophy members in S.
