Dear Pete, you too!! I have emailed the source of the ball point pen, BUT
feel for sure that my Ellen is the young woman who came to Australia on the
Caribou in October 1859( this original info kindly given by R. G. Fairall,
of Newcastle), from his help I find Ellen travelled with a sister and a
brother and his wife.( Ellen was born in the 1840 and was in Australia to
marry in 1863 and was the only llen Ferry to travel in that time frame..I am
now trying to get hold of the full extract of details for Irish Orphans to
Sydney, as there is a Bridget Ferry mentioned and Ellen's brother named his
daughters, one Bridget and two Mary ( their deceased mother) and his son
John, after him. All I need on Bridget Ferry is the name of the townland and
her father and mothers name, ho, ho, ho - but I believe transcripts do exist
with this info HELP----- Thank you all for all your help..., Beverley at

I feel sure that "that" interpretation was beyond even my most ridiculous
proposals <gr>. But was the Sallemborough extracted from thin air? There
have been something behind it. Inquiring minds want to know.
