edmondsallan , from auckland .nz , has been a Family Tree Circles member since Aug 2010. is researching the following names: CLAYTON, EDMONDS.
Some Irish Orphan Girls ships went to Adelaide. My Gr x 3 grandmother, Johanna Flanagan, arrived aboard "Inconstant" 9th June 1849. She somehow got to Bendigo, and married a Cornish man, Samuel Johns.
Wow, what a huge amount of research and what passion and determination to do all of this!!!
For more information on one of the Irish Bounty girls ( ELIZA ROBINS nee THOMPSON) you can see it on the Clyde History website. http://www.clydehistory.comyr.com/html/0413robinseliza2.html
Eliza Thompson married Richard ROBINS
Hope this will be helpful for someone researching their family tree
There is alittle confusion over Margaret Donovan arriving Melb per Eliza Caroline 1850 and Margaret Donovan arriving Sydney per John Knox 1850. I have found referrence to Margaret per Eliza Caroline marrying Leonard Maxwellin Sydney 1854, however I believe this is the Margaret from the John Knox who married Leonard Maxwell. If anyone who can shed light on which Margaret Donovan it was I would be very greatful.
also....I was told Margaret Donovan per Eliza Caroline came with a sister, so does anyone knows which other Donovan girl was Margarets sister?
