Place of migration:
Stayed in Ireland

This photo is of either Edmund Flood b. 1845 Ballynakill d. 1899 Australia OR  one of his sons, John Flood b. 1868 Australia.  d. 1907 Australia.

We're waiting for confirmation of who it is.

So, this Flood is wearing robes from the Hibernian Australasian Catholic Benefit Society HACBS, St Kilians branch in Bendigo / Sandhurst. 

Edmund (b. 1845)  emigrated to Australia in 1854 (approx) with his Uncle (Name?). Edmund and his brother Patrick were reunited in Bendigo

(aka Sandhurst, name change) a town in Victoria Australia. It was the time of the Great Famine in Ireland and the Gold Rush in Australia.
