I am searching for Catherine Casey from Ireland. My Family came to Australia in 1839 leaving behind family Peter Cardiff and his wife Catherine (Casey) Cardiff, in Newbridge We have never been able to trace those Cardiffs or any before them.

Peter who came was my gggrand father born in 1793 and accompanied by his wife Hannah Maher from Dublin and all of their children. Hannahs parents were Betty (Molloy) Maher and Con Maher.


We are seeking ancestors of our family who came to Australia in 1839 from Ireland. Ours is the CARDIFF family but the names I have mentioned are of their spouses and parents. This is the brick wall we have hit. A snippet about our Peter Cardiff Snr who was on the ship is that he was a distributor in the Sydney/Parramatta area for the newspaper from 'Van Dieman's Land' called The Irish Exile! and Freedom's Advocate published by young Irelanders who had been deported to Australia.

It would really be great if we could jump over this wall.
