There is more than meets the eye with this marriage. I believe that there would have been connections with the family in Tipperary.

Kilmore and surrounds seem to be simpathetic with the plight of Tipperary, evident in the newspaers of the time, which have been invaulable.

Seems Edward was a model farmer, with a small holding of abt 130 acres. His interest in the breeding of racehorses was succesful. He was involved with a number of regional champions, including Soldier boy.

His son William went on to be jockey and then trainer and was a man of note in the Melbourne racing scene.

Now saving the best until last. Isnt it funnt how you can start looking at something, one thing leads to another, then you end up missing it alltogether.

So not sure on how I have missed the baptisims all this time, but thanks so much for the post, as you have found something that I did not know.

Notes:

All three baptisms contain adresses. 2 of which I have located. Wow, not sure how I have missed it in the past. one i am not sure on.

Not sure what it was that had Hugh moving around, but by 1848, he was arrested for stealing 28 pound and some clothes.

Tried in Limmerick and sent to Spike Island, Dublin Castle, prior to being transported to Australia for 7 years.

His wife Jane and Mary Andrew and Jeremiah were sent out to join him in 1858. Also on board were children of Phillip Kennedy, who I have not figured out as yet.

so thanks again for the hint, a real boost to the research.
