Peach family in Victoria, Australia

Journal by michaelStJohn

I'm looking for as much info as I can get on the descendants of John Robert PEACH & Bridget LOFTUS. They were marry in Melbourne 1851, they then made their way to Western Victoria around the Belfast ( now Port Fairy),Horsham,Hamilton & Macarthur areas . Most of their children were born in one or other of the towns.
John R & Bridget are my gggrandparents.
I've got already over 200 people in my Peach tree but lots of gaps for some of the 2nd generation. Very happy yo share what I have.

Hello Tonkin & janilye.

Do you happen to have any further info on John Robert PEACH's brother, Thomas? I can't find any ref to him in the Western area of Vic.

I don't remember coming across this Thomas PEACH.
Did Thomas marry?

I don't know if he was married sorry.He does not appear to be any of the "Thomas's" on the Peach marriages list you put up. This Thomas was not on the same ship that John Robert ( JR) was on when he came to Australia. It may be that the newspaper got it wrong. One of JR'sons was also a Thomas and was names a butcher on his marriage cert in 1903. I may have to go to the State Library to check out the old records of the "Horsham Times". Thank you anyway!
