An informative journal. To have first ship THAMES to carry immigrants from Ireland. Amazing!!
Do you have an interest in the Irish emigration ship "Thames". Did you have relatives arrive on the ship?
My 3rd. great grandmother Mary McCarthy 1795-1870 the wife of Ribbonist John Kilduff 1793-1854 was onboard but that was not why I was collecting names. The list was for someone else who is researching the Thames and I posted this for him. Although now, I have no idea who it was because someone HACKED my email and deleted all my folders and my contacts. - all is not lost though, I can send it a distant cousin John Kilduff he's in the loop!
Mary McCarthy was great, great grandmother. William (John and Mary's son) was my great grandfather. Frank was my grandfather and Alfred Martin Kilduff was my Dad. Thank you for your interesting articles on all things history.

I haven't added beyond your father on my tree (privacy and all that). Thank you for your comment. Glad you think they're interesting.
Do you live in Grafton?
Dear Janilye, My name is Paul Donohue and my GGG Grandfather James (possibly with alternative 'Donohue' spelling) was transported to Sydney on the 'Mangles'in 1822.
He applied to have his wife and family sent to Sydney on the 'Thames' in 1825.
I would be so grateful if I could find out if his son James (my GG Grandfather) born in Limerick in 1820 and other family members were among the passengers on the 'Thames' which arrived in Sydney in 1826. Does Lyn Vincent have such a list?

I have 2 of Clayton's documents on my old computer, I think one 'Thames passenger data Base' an XLS file I can't open. The other is the Thames ship's surgeon's report. I'd forgotten all about this research.
Private message me your email address and I will send them to you, perhaps you can open them, I don't think they will be much as I've had them since the very beginning of the research. I don't know how far the list has progressed.
DONOGHUE, James. Per "Mangles", 1822
Trial Place: Co Limerick
Trial Date: Spring 1822
November 1822: On list of convicts landed from the "Mangles" and forwarded to Airds for distribution (Reel 6009; 4/3506 p.431)
10 April 1824 On list of prisoners on establishment at Bathurst with sentences not transmitted (Reel 6028; 2/8283 p.103)
James Donoghue Mangles (2) According to State Records, family came free on the Thames.
Thanks so much, Janilye. I really appreciate your wonderful, quick response. I'll email Robert Clayton first, to try and get his passenger lists for the "Thames". If this doesn't work out, I'd like to try to open the old Excel files you mentioned. I'll let you know what happens. Of course, I'll be only too happy to share with any other interested people whatever information I have and/or new info I might find out. Although I now live permanently in Bulgaria, I also proudly wear the 'birthstain' which I only recently discovered I have.
Hi again, Janilye,
I've been in touch with Bob Starling and he is very graciously doing some research to more accurately and fully identify my Donoghue ancestors, as they should appear on the "Clayton's" 1826 "Thames Passenger List".
I'm greatly indebted to you and FamilyTreeCircles for this marvelous assistance.
