An internet site has the entries below.

My interest is in linking the Bliss & Kirby families in Northamptonshire before these migrations of 1848. My thought is that someone may have these individuals in their tree and a Kirby female (probably from Blakesley, Potterspury or Yardley Gobion). They may be entries with a birth and /or marriage by then there have gone MIA.

Arrivals in New South Wales - On board The Fairlie 1848

#JOHN BLISS 28 brick & tilemaker born Potterspury Co. Northants & wife SARAH 28 dressmaker, nee Horner, born Dudley Co. Warwicks with children JOHN 2 born Yardley Gobion, Northants and GEORGE born Potterspury.

# THOMAS BLISS 26 brick & tilemaker born Potterspury & wife LOUISA 30 lacemaker, nee Sharon, born Yardley Gobion.

# GEORGE BLISS 29 clothier born Northampton & wife SOPHIA born Lincolnshire. On board the Pericles 1877.

Please have a look - the Bliss connection is one that is driving me up the wall!!
