janilye - 7th generation, Convict stock. Born in New South Wales now living in Victoria, carrying, with pride 'The Birthstain'.
The surname Hebir is an incorrect transcription. The correct spelling is Hehir. This can be verified independantly using the digitised Trove record. I assume Bridget John & Patrick are members of the same family & are my possible antecedants.
Thanks for that Peter, actually I picked up a few more mistakes, by looking again. Might be time to hand over the transcriptions to younger eyes.
Those particular HEHIR's MIGHT be John HEHIR 1806-1896 and his wife Bridget, nee HARTNEY 1804-1884 They had a son Patrick and settled in South Australia in Lochiel but don't take my word for it. There was another HEHIR family in Kapunda but they arrived in the 1850's, about the same time as the Victorian HEHIR's.
