Looking for Garden West of Dublin

Journal by ianjarvis

I am trying to link Garden West b c1821 in Dublin to Temple West, Vice Admiral of The White, b 1713 d 1757 m 1737 to Frances Balchin. Family anecdotal notes indicate there may be a link.

Garden West was married in Dublin to Susan Browne b 1820 Kilrush, Ireland and had 4 sons John, Alexander, George, Garden T. and a daughter Alice. Susan remarried in 1853 to Thomas Spence Hutcheson my GG Grandfather.

My ancestor from Dublin, Edward Browne, blacksmith (son of John Browne, farmer) was with the Ribbonite movement and sent to Australia in 1822 for the term of his natural.. for Catholic anti-English allegiences.
His wife Bridget (who resided with a prominent gentleman - registered voter - in Dublin during the trial and after) and three children later joined Edward in NSW where his name changed to BROWN.
A book (now classified as rare but held in three legal libraries around the world) was written about the trial, which set an important legal precident in English law. He had several co-accused.
The eldest child, Robert Brown (farmer,inn-keeper,grazier and founder of town of Albury on the Murray River NSW) took the family to new heights of wealth, along with social and political recognition. (His daughter Florence danced with the Prince of Wales during the prince's visit to the Governor of South Australia, while Robert and Florence were in residence there.)
Probably not your mob, but amazing times!! I have been unable to trace Edward's father John Browne farmer -- such a common name...
Good luck with your search.

Thanks for the comments. Fascinating times and good to hear of success stories. I suspect I need a holiday in Ireland to dig up more info.
Good luck and best wishes
