1913 Electoral Roll - HARVEY


Something is wrong somewhere.

Do I have 2x Mary Hetherington? One Mary and one Mary Ann ??

My tree is so interconnected.
Wrong one Geoff.

I have it hiding in my tree. Sponsor is brother-in-law.

Deposit Journal:
Mary Hetherington
Birth Year: abt 1853 Tyrone, Ireland
Immigration Date: 6 Dec 1878
Ship: 'Hereford'
Sponsor Name: John Mcdonald. Deposit Date: 8 Dec 1877
[With a John Hetherington, 22. Both farm servants. Ed Stewart = referee]
So the 1867 marriage must be wrong also..

No Geoff.

2x Mary

Mary Ann Hetherington
Age: 20
Arrival Date: 24 Aug 1863

Origin Location: Derby, Derbyshire
[Looks to be with an Ann [28]]

Can't read most of the image, this is a partial copy for ID purposes.

Very hard to read but I don't see 'Derby, Derbyshire' but I can just read Irvinestown, Co Fermanagh.

Don't think Mary has the same parents as Ann.
Ann - Brother & sister Thos. ? & Mary
Mary Ann - Sister

As I can read it Ann and Mary Ann do not have same parents and list of relatives in colony not the same so they are not sisters.
This is another record of the Spitfire arrival..
Mary Heatherington
Age: 20Arrival Date: 24 Aug 1863
Vessel Name: Spitfire
Origin Location: Kilbeggan, County Westmeath, Ireland

This is a partial copy of the image..


So we have brothers who married a Mary Hetherington, both from Ireland.

Next time at the State Library I'll try to get a better image.

Death 9865/1933 HARVEY MARY A - JOHN MARY - MANLY * 25 Mar

I think parents on image for Ann are Noble & Jane and for Mary Ann are Jas & Mary.

3x Hetherington married in Kiama.
New month and I've just moved on to 'R' in my tree so will give this one a rest until I can check the image from library.

Only in the middle of this topic did I become aware I had brothers who married a Mary Hetherington and both in my tree by connection to different families.
