I am just getting started on my ancestors and I have hit a brick wall. I have my grandfathers birth certificate(Robert John) which states his father as James Hoban of Kilkenny aged 41 in 1879.Record showsmarried on the 27th September 1870 to Martha Margaret nee Dinnon in Belfast Victoria Aust.(now Port Fairy) Other issues at that time were James (dec) Mary Jane 6yrs Martin 4yrs and Agnes 2yrs. The certificate shows they were residing in Bulla County of Bourke Melbourne Aust. After much searching we were unable to find a marriage record for James in 1870.
I have marriage details for Robert John to Mary Margaret Molloy on19th August 1907 at Morwell,anda death certificate for Robert John Hoban who died in Mooroopna in 1950 also have my father's records Edward John Hoban born in Morwell Dec 1912 and death in 1955 at Heidelberg Victoria Aust.I hope this information will assist both of us.
