Try looking at convict lists for Australia. I have several Irish names for those who died on Norfolk Island and are buried there. Would be glad to try to assist any who wish.

Just saw on an internet site that it seems all the BMD records from around 1796 and 1804 on Norfolk Island have been lost. I too have a connection to the Barrisford/Berresford family - albeit a little remote - John and Hannah's daughter Mary married Michael Purdon; then their daughter Elizabeth married my G-G-grandfather's brother, Jonathan Beale in Tasmania. We are off to Norfolk Island next week - looking forward to that. The only thing I have are the dates of death of Mary Oakley and George Woods - Mary on 27 September 1796 and George in April 1796.

No doubt you have found some information by now at the KAVHA centre, but Cathy Dee is a great source for information. Geoge Oakley was the father of the husband of our 2nd great grand aunt!

I cannot find anything about Mary Woods, hoping Cathy might be able to help she is ready to release a book on the Baptisms on NI
