Fitzgerald Family.

Wallsend. Newcastle, NSW
Hello. I am searching for the Fitzgerald,s from Surrey. All I know is their names. If anyone can help me trace John Fitzgerald,( I believe he was born in Ireland) and Mary Ann Bannister,( I think her maiden name was Caslip) Their daughter May Ann Came to Australia in 1849 aged 18, maybe as an orphan bride, so her parents must have died just before that. I have started a new branch. I have given up on the Stow's and Bannister's for awhile, It's as though they never existed.
Thank You Christine.
