I'm not now gibbo. :biggrin:

I can't look the marriage up at any library with the Volume being past 123 but there is another set of films at the Mitchell Library that should have RC St Mary's Sydney. That marriage might have something about John and it might not.

If we ignore the arrival there is still a John and and Ellen who married in 1846.

This is their second child and no occupation for John.

Reel 5024
Roman Catholic Baptisms in the Parish of Saint James in the County of Cumberland 1850
Francis - John Sheehy & Ellen Lynch Abode: Riley Street Quality or Profession: - When Born: 13th March 1850 When Baptised: April 1st By whom the Ceremony was performed: Rev. P. Magagnotto


So 2x John. Ryerson seems to be down.

Harriet's death and funeral notices in 1869 do not mention John or any children or any relatives.

Death 119/1864 SHEEHY JOHN - JOHN - ELLEN - SYDNEY ** 23 Jan Age 64

But which John is it?

Spouse of Harriet was 32 in 1838 and his parents John & Helen.

Death 677/1867 SHEEHY MARY - PATRICK - BRIDGET - SYDNEY ** Burrell Lane off Riley street - spouse is John so we have 3x John

Death 3622/1875 SHEEHY JOHN AGE 50 YEARS DIED PADDINGTON PADDINGTON ** 19 Oct

3 Spring street, Paddington - no mention of spouse or relatives

Seems no children after Francis in 1850. I can't find his death.


I'm going to wait until I can get to the Mitchell Library and look at RC St Mary marriages.
