Hi,

All my migrant ancestors settled in NSW, most arrived directly to NSW.  Two arrived in the early 1850s, aged 11 and 14 or thereabouts.  Unaccompanied.  Unable to read and write.  - Gold fever.  Those two (brothers) arrived Melbourne, and rushed off to the Goldfields.  They married in Victoria and their Vic m.c.s include the name of the village where they were born and grew up, plus the names of both their parents including mum's nee name.  Yes the person who wrote it on the m.c. was the clergyman, and yes he had trouble spelling, but the name of the village and the county (population in 1840s in England - about 17 inter-related families), and mum's nee name 'clinched' the official record with the known family Bible and the known Birthday Book passed down through the family.

What a story. Brave and desperate. Can't imagine my 12 year old grandson doing that.  No info like that on any certificates I have. I do not have the marriage certificates, only death. William 's death certificate did say Milford, Ireland . The others just Ireland. Will download marriage certificates. Thanks for your help.

That thread started over eight years ago  :) Perhaps there's clues there to help with this current thread.

Welcome to RChat Christine  :)

Possibly there are clues on that thread...names or dates or something?

October 2 1857

On the 24th Sept 1857., marriied in the First Presbyterian Church, Ramelton, by the Rev. James Reid, MARY ANN McNUTT, daughter of the late MR JAMES McNUTT, of Ballyconly  to  MR CHARLES BOVAIRD, of Ballybolother,


As yours had maiden name McNUTT,  First Presbyterian Church, Ramelton might be a good starting point??

You have the likes of

Patterson , William , Glenleary   http://donegalgenealogy.com/aughnishgv.htm  ...but is it correct William??

The key word to find on a Marriage would be the Townland.

Some people named houses, farms etc after where they came from!
