HERRING William Diogenes 1838 Campbelltown NSW AUS Details
  • Contact person : Gloria
  • Additional Information : William HERRING - Am researching my late husbands forebears and have learned he is connected to Tyson family through his g. g. grandmother Barbara Tyson daughter of William and Isabella (Coulson) Tyson. Barbara married Wm. Diogenes Herring at St. Peter's Campbelltown in 1838. He was a convict and I have much to learn about him and the Tyson family. My search for Wm Diogenes Herring is not helped by the fact that there was another convict Diogenes Herring. There are too many death registrations for William so need to find him some other way before I have lookups done. The marriage entry at St. Peter's gave no age or parents names. Wm. Diogenes was 26 when he arrived in Australia in 1834. Diogenes Herring was 17 when he arrived in 1829. Which one belongs to my husband's tree? Is anyone else researching this family?

KELLY Mary Ann 1856 - 1861 Campbelltown NSW AUS Details
  • Contact person : Dafydd Cotter
  • Additional Information : I’m trying to find information regarding my great grandmother’s family. She was Mary Ann Kelly who was born in Campbelltown sometime between 1856 and 1861. Confusion over the dates of her birth comes about as her death record states that she was 65 years of age when she died in 1926, meaning that she was born around 1861, yet her death certificate also says that she was a 20 year old bride when she married in 1876, therefore placing her year of birth to 1856.

    She was a daughter of a John and Mary Ann Kelly, nee Kerasen. There is no record of their marriage in New South Wales, so I assume that they arrived as immigrants from Ireland. The family moved to the Bendenine Estate near Binalong at some time when that was opened to selectors (1860’s – 1870’s?). My great-grandfather (Edward Cotter) also had a selection there, so I assume that’s where he met Mary Ann Kelly, they married in Yass.
