Looking for Stephen and Martha Carter

Stephen was born in 1803 in Beckley East Sussex England and married Martha Paine there in about 1829. They had two children before emmigrating to Australia in 1838 on the Palmyra. Their son Stephen married Charlotte Masters in 1862. I am interested in finding more information on these families.

JOHN BRISLANE, convict McLeay River

I am looking for the family of John Brislane, who was a convict sent to Australia. He sailed on the convict ship the "Forth" from Cork and arrived in the colony in 1835.

In 1856 he married Rosanna Kinnavan (Canavan) who was also born in Ireland and together they had eleven children.

They settled on a property which was called "The Bend" at Knorrit Flat just outside of Taree.

Thomas Wells arrived on Java 1853

I am researching the family of Thomas Wells who arrived with his wife and children aboard the Java in 1853. Thomas settled in the Hunter Valley and later in Coolah. I believe he was from Barton in Somersetshire, England.

Edmund Battle from Suffolk to NSW

I am researching the family of Edmund Battle who settled in Dondingalong near Kempsey NSW. He arrived here on the "Java" with his wife and son Ephraim. Edmund was the son of Mary Barber (Battle) and George Self from Campsea Ash in Suffolk, England. His wife was Rebecca Davey also from Suffolk.

Looking for Meehans of Muswellbrook.

I am looking for information on Anthony Meehan b Ennis, County Clare, Ireland and emmigrated with family (all at various times). I believe his father and mother were already here, his father being a convict and his mother coming after to join her husband. Anthony was sponsored by his brother Cornelius. Jan.
