Born in Hobart Town about 1847 Thomas Henry WHITE.

I have hit a brick wall, Thomas Henry WHITE , born Hobart Town Tasmania about 1847 I think, to Alexander WHITE & Mary SMITH. came to Victoria & married Louisa LINACRE. Where did Alexander & Mary come from ? for generations Thomas has been a christian name in the family.



My ancestor Margaret CLARK came to AUSTRALIA from SLIGO IRELAND as a bounty immigrant aged 22 years on MARCHIONESS OF BUTE in 1842.

She married John ARNOLD at Bathurst Australia and had a family I think. I would like to find more about this family as I am related.

I think she married Thomas MALAHAN at NSW.

She later married John LINACRE and had a family and died 1898 at WHROO Victoria.

Her parents are down as OWEN O'LEARY and SUSAN REID from SLIGO IRELAND. I do not know anything about them.

Has anyone any of these names in their ancestry please.
