My gr.gr.grandfather James Kirbey arrived in
Australia in the 1840's from Cork.
I have not found any shipping for his entry nor do I know if he was a convict.
According to his death certificate, his parents were Mary Bourke and John
He married Catherine O'Laughlin from Waterford in St. Francis's Church Melbourne
had 7 children with Catherine before being run over by his bullocks and dray
and leaving her a widow in 1863.
Is there anyone on the list that feels there might be a connection?
