Hi I am trying to find out more information about my great great great grandfather, Edward Connaughty, he is listed as being a farm servant, was married with 1 female child, he could read and write, was Roman Catholic and at the age of 27 he was tried for Perjury on the 22/07/1835 at Westmeath Ireland was sentenced for 7 years and was sent to Australia from Ireland on the Surry or Surrey 1 (8th voyage) which left Cork on the 9/01/1836 and arrived Sydney Australia 17/05/1836. I am trying to find his birth date, place, who he was married to, where and the name of their daughter.
We believe he was born Connaughty, his Australian marriage Cert. says Lonnaughty, his Cert. of Freedom says Connaughty, and his death Cert. says Connerty, Connerty is on all the Australian childrens birth certs.
Any help that anyone can give would be greatly appreciated.
Kind Regards Shawn
