HELLO  TEAM.I am research my O'Brien family said to have come from  Summerhill County Meath.,but with no luck I also have looked for them in other counties  but with no luck.

THe followering infornation is taken from their shipping list.They came by the FERGUSSON as SElf-funded and as BOUNTY IMMIGRANTS IN 1841   They arrived 15th January 1841 at PORT PHILLIP left PLYMOUTH  25 SEPTEMBER1840 THE. AGENT WAS JOHN MARSHALL

The Family members were Father GARRETT  age 38 Labour Roman Catholic READ &Write NO  Native Place County MEATH IreLAND         CATHERINE age 36 Dairywoman ditto ditto    CHILDREN Thomas age 21   Garrett age 18   PAT age 13
Micheal age 10   Sylvester age 7   Ann age 16   mary age 5.

I think that both Garrett and his wife Catherine had put theirs ages back when they immigrated as their their ages did not much on their death certificate when they died in Victoria.

I would be very grateful  for any infornatiom you can tell me regarding this family.

  • The following children were baptized in the parish of Tullamore, Co. Offaly; parents were Garret Brien and Catherine Whelehan. While the ages don't match the passenger list, the names and birth order do, so I thought I would sent this along. The parish of Tullamore might possibly border on or include part of Meath.
