I am researching John & Catherine Hennessy who left Ireland in 1837 and arrived in Hobart Tasmnaia Australia in 1838. Two of their children (Bridget and James?) died on the voyage. They sttled in Ricmond Tasmania for a while before leaving for Kyneton Victoria Australia. The had a total of eight children Bridget,James, Sarah, Katherine, Anorah, Richard, Thomas and John.
I am interest in finding out some information regards the family either in Ireland or Australia.
