Journal by Marto1

I am looking for information relating to John Martin born 1755 died 20.12.1837 and his possible marriage to a Mary Randall. Mary Randall was a convict transported to Australian for a term of 7 years on the Lady Julianna departing 1787.

Any information on either would be appreciated

Dear Marto1, Welcome. I looked for a marriage in NSW round about the right timeframe and found one below.

Registration No. V18121383 3A/1812 John MARTIN married 1812 to Mary RANDALL NSW Australia in the church of England, Parramatta St.John's.

Source: NSW Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages

There are approx. 19 births surname MARTIN parents names: John and Mary between 1810 and 1830. Some of them no doubt would be children of your John and Mary.

NSW bdms are free to search online.

Tip: On FamilyTreeCircles have the surnames that your journal is about at the bottom in the Surnames section separate by commas and written in uppercase (they link back to surname wiki pages, other researchers and links about the surname).

Tip: On FamilyTreeCircles, search for convicts, free, freebies, and newbies to find out lots of great information.

Tip: Join up as a free member of the site, goto the Emigrants to Australia board, try and find out more information on these ancestors.

It looks like your ancestor is listed in my journal "CONVICTS 'transported' to Australia 1790 (Newspaper article, plus lists of convict names)". If you read the article in detail it can make one feel rather emotional for the convicts. {I have two in my family tree so far}.

Hey there Brett. Don't give up, you've only just begun. All you need is a few reference points to start from. And the more information you share about your ancestors, the more you will find out.

Tip: Please remember to always protect the privacy of the living - on the worldwideweb.

Of interest to yourself, as mentioned before, will be the 'Emigrants to Australia' childboard, in addition Ireland - General - Dublin. Check out the resources and start posting some new topics (like journals here).

Up the top it should say - WELCOME GUEST, PLEASE LOGIN OR REGISTER FOR FREE. Then follow all the login instructions. I'd recommend having the same username as on here in case other researchers/descendants are looking for you. I'm on there as 'allycat' also.

I highly recommend you thinking about how you're going to store all your family tree data. I use PAF (Personal Ancestral File) downloaded for free from - see my journal, search for PAF here on familytreecircles. And I have my tree online at genesreunited, it costs me under 20 aussie dollars/yr. But then I never knew about the tribalpages website which is also brilliant, and best of all free.
