I am researching the lineage of George KENALY born George KINNIRY in Australia 1869. George was one of seven children to John KINNIRY and Bridget WARREN.
Bridget was born in County Clare in 1839, John was born in County Clare in 1840 and they married in County Clare in 1856.
John and Bridget immigrated to Australia in between 1856 and 1858 (that was when their first Australian child was born). Seraching the online records i find that there was a bridget kennelly who came to australia in 1857 with daughter margaret on the ship John Bunyan (the age of bridget matches) and John possibly came to australia in 1856 on the ship Bee (again the age matches).
The birth certificate of my george KINNIRY states that BRidget and John had 3 sons and a 2 daughters and 2 deceased sons by the time my george was born. I have managed to find the five sons (2 deceased before 1869) and 1 daughter bridget in the New South Wales registry of births deaths and marriages (the two sons werent born in Australia) still missing 1 daugther thus i am assuming that margaret who came to australia in 1857 aged 1 could be the missing daughter.
I know that Bridget and John both died before 1906 when their son George married a 2nd time.
If you have any information on this family could you please email me at this address.
