Edit profile to show place of migration

Edward’s army discharge documents say he was born in Dundalk about 1802 or 1803. His parents may have been Edward Kelly and Margaret Lennon. He became a Master Tailor in the army. He married Anne Derrom in September 4 1838 in Brompton, Chelsea. Her parents were Sgt. Richard Derrom and Mary Winder and she was born in 1814 in York, Canada. Anne and Edward went to Hobart with a convict ship arriving in 1849 a day before their first child was born.  Edward died in his hotel The Royal Oak, Onehunga, NZ in 1860 predeceasing his wife by 35 years. DNA testing of his great-great-grandson of Sydney Australia shows a match with a Californian family who’s ancestor William Kelly was a shoemaker from the Dundalk area.
