to add to my recent post on Patrick Delahunty, he actually was born c 1829, lived Kilkenny, Ireland arrived on the MELBOURNE in Port Adelaide, South Australia on 6th Dec, 1858....he is listed as N - nomminee - which i presume means he had family here already????
The Melbourne left Liverpool, England on 4th September 1858
may sound relatively stupid....but......can anyone tell me how the irish immigrants arrived in Liverpool to immigrate on the ships bound for SA...?????
hope someone out there has some answers his father on marriage register is also recorded as PATRICK DELAHUNTY....
