arrivals to Hobart on the Bussorah Merchant
« on: Thursday 12 September 13 23:51 BST (UK) »
Hello I am researching the James Mahoney family who arrived in Hobart on the Bussorah Merchant in 1837 and were initially put into the BelleVue female Orphan School in Davey St Hobart.I would like to make contact with anyone else researching this group of immigrants. Also anyone who has knowledge of the Bellevue Female Orphan School.

Cheers, Katankh

Hi Katankh
My great great grandparents also arrived on the Bussorah Merchant in 1837. Their names were William & Ellen Clancy and they had with them Ellen's sister Ann Hegarty and their three children Patrick, Edmond and Ann Clancy. The youngest two children were amongst the children who perished because of measles.
Unfortunately at this stage I do not have anything to add on Belle Vue.
My ancestors came from the Parish of Aghada in County Cork and I have noted that there were two other Mahoney families from Aghada on that journey: John Mahoney and his wife Mary plus Michael Mahoney, his wife Ellen and young son John (who died on the journey). Would these Mahoneys and James Mahoney perhaps be related?
My ancestors came to Melbourne sometime before August 1839 and eventually moved to western Victoria. I am wondering if your family might have done the same and we could assist each other by an exchange of information.
