McChesney Family

 

 Hi.  I am looking for any information on either Mary McChesney or George McChesney.  Mary McChesney was my great great grandmother.  I know that Mary McChesney was born in County Cavan, Ireland around 1828, possibly Bailieborough.  She came to Australia on a ship called the Wallace with her sister and uncle in 1844.  She did change her name at that time to Mitchell (her uncles surname).  She had children including my great grandmother Amelia Susan Tatham who was born in Australia 1858.  Mary McChesney's father was George McChesney, he was born about 1807.  He was in the town Drumhillagh North Knockbridge Cavan as noted on the Griffith Valuation.  I think that Mary's mother was also called Mary.  Any information on Mary McChesney, my great great grandmother or her father George McChesney, would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you for your help.

    Hi Miriam.  Thank you very much for your email.  Mary's uncle was John Mitchell, he was the brother of her mother.  Also, accompanying them to Australia was Mary's sister Martha.  Mary's mother's name was Mary Mitchell.  They were protestants.  We know that Mary's mother died when she was young.

    Kind Regards
