Hi Merlin
just wondering if you can help. you said John was granted his TOL on 10 /1/1843 at Scone and I cann't find it in the Archives I would like to order TOL papers if you don't mind giving me the rego no. as I think he may have been placed in Catherine care. as there first child was born in 1844
I have now received John pardon papers but didn't give me any more information then all you guys found
                   Thank for you help Robyn

The date I gave you was from the NSW Government Gazettes.

On checking the SRNSW have his name listed as DONALLAN TOL #43/0024

So if you go here:

http://srwww.records.nsw.gov.au/indexes/searchform.aspx?id=36

Surname=DONALLAN, Given name=John, Ship=Blenheim, Year=1834 the records will show up for you to order  :D

Hi to all
you have been so helpful in the past so I though I would give this a go. I have now received the ticket's of leave passport for John Donnellan but they never mention Catherine or give up any more information that was't already found
I have received new information that Catherine may have used her maiden name Catherine or Kitty McMahon arriving 3/10/1836 on the Duchess of Northberland but can't find it on shipping records any help would be appreciated

Hi Debra
Thank you for your reply.her age is close, I know her father was Terence McMahon and Catherine had a daughter named Bridget, may be after her mother. is Kitty another way of saying Catherine? and she was Roman Catholic
she may have used her maiden name to hide being a convict's wife ::)
                             Thank's again it's very much Appreciated
