    • Date is approximate
    Notes 
    • Immigrated as a married couple on ship "China", which arrived in Port Phillip on 2 May 1840 and Botany Bay on 31 May 1840, so the marriage could not have been on 12 May 1840 in Eyrecourt, Ireland.

      Hi Listers

      I am sending this message again as I omitted to say I was researching Kelly family of Galway. I know there must be hundreds of Kellys from Galway so I am hoping someone knows of this family

      John KELLY , labourer married
      Winifred WOOLERHAN

      They had a son
      Thomas KELLY born and christened at Lismanny, County Galway in 1820
      He married Nabby COUGHLAN 12 May 1840 at Ayrecourt, Ireland. Nabby Coughlan was born 1819 at Cappa Naughton, County Galway
      Thomas died 15 December 1881 in Tambaroora, Australia
      Nabby died 7 May 1883 at Bathurst, Australia

      Thomas and Nabby had seven children, all born in Australia
      Can anyone give me any background on John Kelly or Winifred Woolerhan or Nabby Coughlan.
      Did Thomas have any siblings?
      Nabby could also have been known as Abby

      I, and all the Australian descendants would be grateful for any information. Here's hoping and thank you
