Hi Cando

I've seen censuses and passenger lists were Marg (abbreviation for Margaret) has been transcribed as Mary so the Napier passengers could well be the right family.

Elaine is not that far from Geelong where George Beilby was born, where was the Beilby/Fahey marriage?

Mary Fahy born Accrington 1861 could well be 3 when the Napier arrived in 1865 depending upon when her birthday was. and the ages of the boys, Michael 11, and John 9 fits with the 1861 Accrington census.

Also, even though the John Fahy/Margaret Cunry marriage was in 1860 the boys could be from a previous relationship.

Married women were often referred to by the husbands name, ie Mrs John Smith, so Mrs D Jenkins would not be incorrect if her second husband was a D Jenkins. Whether there was an actual marriage or not is a different issue.

I can't see a birth of a daughter to George Cornelius BEILBY and Mary FAHEY.

Didn't search late enough.  Apologies.

Elaine is the residence of John FAHEY Labourer in 1897 and death of Margaret FAHEY in 1899....and the birthplace of one of George and Mary's children.

Still puzzled where the James FAHEY and Elizabeth GRAHAM came from ;)

Hi Cando,
James Fahey and Elizabeth Graham must be the NSW couple, who someone else has put in their Anscestry tree as the parents of Mary Fahey. There were two Mary Fahey's born around 1858-61, one in NSW to James and Elizabeth and one in Lancashire to John and Margaret.

Another reason to treat online trees with caution.

John and Margaret may even have married sometime after they began living as husband and wife, the boys may be hers.
Can we see John or those boys on the previous census?

Yep Cando, I know, but sometimes they can give you an idea. This one does mention the Jenkins connection.

This is the only one that looks likely but no mother's maiden name given  :(

FAHEY Michael b. 1852 Prescot, LANCASHIRE #PRE/14/75


I am also searching for a possible first wife to John & her death.
