Index to the Unassisted Arrivals NSW 1842-1855
Name McMURCHAY Flora
Ship Frances
Status P
Date of arrival 24 Sep 1843
Origin port Liverpool, Port Phillip
Ref. 1270

As of Sep 1856 Catherine has son John, daughter Flora and another son Archibald Puden ? in NSW. I can't tell from shipping record if 'Puden' is a middle name or family name. If a family name then it's probably PEDEN and it would mean 2 marriages for Catherine/Katherine McEACHERN (several variations of both names).

Looking for the arrival of John between 1841 - 1856 ???

And the arrival of Archibald. FreeCEN has only 5% coverage of Argyll in 1851.


PS. This is a branch almost as bad as Lewton/Lear/Wilmott.
