    1. [CAMPBELLTOWN-FHS] NSW Gaol Description
    2. dianna charles
    3. Hi Everyone I'm hoping that I maybe able to find more details on the gaol sentence of brothers (?) William a brewer and Michael Byrne a cabinetmaker, who were gaoled in 1831 for three months. They were convicted in Parramatta and I believe that they were living in or around Campbelltown perhaps. Both boys were born in NSW. We think the sons of Convict Michael Byrne per "Minerva" Details are on the NSW Gaol Description records from Ancestry. There was also an article in The Sydney Gazette 12 April 1831 re the boys arrest and sentence I know when William married, died but I do not know anything about Michael, ie marriage, death etc. If anyone could advise me where else to look I would be most appreciative. Kind regards Dianna

    3. Hi Members, Just some information re Ancestry.com. GENEALOGY website Ancestry.com has agreed to be acquired by a group led by European private equity firm Permira Funds in a cash deal valued at about $US1.6 billion ($A1.56 billion). Hopefully that won't influence costs etc. Regards David Beddie Treasurer & Magazine Editor, CDFHS

    1. [CAMPBELLTOWN-FHS] The Father Therry Register
    2. dianna charles
    3. Hi Would anyone be able to tell me where I may find the Register that Father Therry the Catholic priest who arrived in NSW in 1820 had. Apparently he kept some Birth/Marriage/Death details there. I was hoping that my Michael BYRNE (and/or wife) may have been included in it as Michael left a bequest to Father Therry in his will, I have a feeling that Father Therry may have officiated at Michaels Funeral 1827. Any help much appreciated kind regards Dianna

    2. dianna charles
    3. Hi Wendy Thanks for that yes I do think you are correct saying that Michael Byrne who ran both pubs is indeed Ann's brother not her husbands brother, so confusing isn't it. I'm hoping to get all this straightened out. Many thanks for your help. Kind regards Dianna

    1. [CAMPBELLTOWN-FHS] Byrne Family of Campbelltown
    2. Wendy Biddle
    3. Hi Diana, From what I have read I understand that the Michael Byrne who was the Licensee of the Royal Oak Inn in the 1830s (which was owned by William Bradbury) and the later owner and manager of The Joiners Arms were the same man - Michael Byrne, son of Hugh Vesty Byrne and Sarah Dwyer, and husband of Jane Warby. He is of course your William's brother-in-law as William married Michael's sister Ann. I'm quite happy to be told I am wrong but anyway I'll find the relevant articles and send them to your email so you can have a look. Best wishes, Wendy Biddle

    1. [CAMPBELLTOWN-FHS] Byrnes Family of Campbelltown
    2. dianna charles
    3. Hi Everyone I'm trying to sort out my BYRNE family who were in the Campbelltown area in the early 1800's. I have Nanno/Ann BYRNE the daughter of Hugh Vesty and Sarah Dwyer who married William BYRNE in 1826. Now this William Byrne born 4-10-1807 in West Bargon NSW was the son of a Michael Byrne and ?? William had a brother also Michael. In Campbelltown the family were publicans, I have William Byrne as liscensee of The Brewers Arms 1833-1837, A Michael Byrne licensee of the Royal Oaks and Michael Byrne licensee of the Joiners Arms. I believe that William Byrne and Michael Byrne (Royal Oaks) are brothers possibly twins and the other Michael Byrne (Joiners Arms) is the son of Hugh Vesty Byrne (per Telicherry) I'm trying to now find out if Michael Byrne (Royal Oaks) brother of William had any family, children, descendants that I maybe able to contact as I'm running out of options trying to find out who the mother of these two boys are. Any advice would be very gratefully received. Kind regards Dianna

    1. [CAMPBELLTOWN-FHS] Susan ROBERTS and MICHAEL BYRNE
    2. dianna charles
    3. Hi Everyone I'm doing research on Michael BYRNE who arrived in NSW on the MINERVA in 1800 as a convict. From what I have learned today he appears on the 1806 Census as living with a Susan ROBERTS. Michael had a son William who was born on 4-10-1807 in West Bargo NSW where apparently his father Michael owned some property. I've been searching everywhere with no luck for Williams mother and I'm hoping that I can find out more on this SUSAN ROBERTS. Michael Byrne died in Sydney in 1827, he had properties there, which was left mainly to his son William, Michaels wife is mentioned in the will but not by name. Michael also left something to his sister in Dublin, Rosetta WOODWORTH, His brother William in Woolich and another sister Ellenor in London. So if anyone can help me piece together the life and movements of Susan ROBERTS and Michael BYRNE per Minerva I would be very grateful. I have checked on the BDM for a Susan Roberts or Byrne death but found nothing. Many thanks Kind regards Dianna

    2. dianna charles
    3. HI Wendy Thank you very much for that information, I was beginning to think I would never find out anything about Michael Byrne, now I know he was a convict also. Have you seen his will or was this information given to you, many thanks for that as it states other family members in the UK I will try and find out who Williams mother is, so we don't know whether Michael Byrne was married here or married in Ireland. Thanks for your help. Kind regards Dianna

    1. [CAMPBELLTOWN-FHS] William and Nanno/Ann BYRNE
    2. Wendy Biddle
    3. Hi Dianna, I have the family of Hugh Vesty Byrne & Sarah Dwyer in my tree as your Ann's brother Michael married into my Warby family from Campbelltown. I don't have much info on William Byrne but found some notes I saved when researching the family a few years ago. The reference below is from an email on a Convicts mailing list. "Hugh Vesty Byrne's daughter Ann married William Byrne. Williams father Michael Burn/Byrne was born about 1775/6 Kildare , he was also tried at Kildare and transported to Australia in 1807 on the MInerva. He mentions a wife in his will but does not name her also his son William and a Sister in Dublin ,Rosetta Woodworth, a Brother in Woolich William and another sister Ellenor in London. Michael owned property in Sydney as well as in the Campbelltown area which he left mostly to his son." I will have a look through my notes over the weekend and email you. Best wishes, Wendy Biddle Sydney
