Hi Mary Thanks for your reply. All I know about my Mary Elizabeth Fury is that she arrived in Australia from Ireland in 1875 as a teenager. Because my Grandfather has pasted away I cannot ask him any details, but one of his sisters is still alive in South Australia, my grandmother is going through notes of my grandfathers to see if his sister sent any details of Mary over to us. This is what I know so far-
Mary Elizabeth FuryMarr. Parick Jordan 28th Nov 1899 (after she had arrived in Aust.) children: Unsure of number of children, but know of: Annie Margaret Jordan.
Annie Margaret Jordan Marr.Charles William Matthews 3rd Feb 1909. Children: 1910 - Mary Bernadette Lourdes (died soon after birth)
1912 - Iris Mary Bernadette
1913 - Bernard John (my grandfather)
1919 - Patricia Mary
1923 - Anthony Kenneth
Do you know the middle names of your three Mary's ? Do any match with mine? My Grandmother seems to remember her mother-in-law, Annie Margaret, telling her that her mother(Mary Fury) came from a large family in Ireland, maybe 10 children. I hope to learn more when I hear from Aunty Molly,(Patricia Mary). Thanks again! Rachel Hanlon Vic, Australia.
