Thanks gibbo. :)

That's filled in a bit more of my tree. Of course another one from Ireland. :biggrin:

Daugher Agnes is the one who was in my tree by marriage in 1903.

Lawless James 83 F Private

Medal Roll - HERE


So what have we missed?


Age at death roughly fits age in shipping record. The arrival over 50 years ago bit does not fit. The pob in shipping record fits. So how could he be in India in 1857?

The 83rd Foot didn't serve in Australia so he didn't enlist in Australia and go with the regiment to India.


In the post-war colonial period the 83rd were stationed in India, and were engaged in the Sepoy rebellion of 1857.

1843 England
1845 Ireland
1848 India: Bombay
1857 Sepoy rebellion
1858 India
1862 England
1866 Ireland
1867 Gibraltar

Background of LAWLESS family - HERE

The Lawless family, originally from Hoddesdon, Herts. came to Ireland in the fourteenth century or earlier, and was seated successively at Shanganagh, Co. Dublin, Talbot Inch, Co. Kilkenny and Shankill, Co. Dublin.
I don't want to go that far back. :2fun:

Parents don't match so not this one:

John Bermingham married Elizabeth Odell..children know of are Honora Bermingham church baptism record: 11 Jan 1836 Shanagolden Co Limerick Roman Catholic
Informants:James Farrell and Cath.Farrell.

Catherine in 1852 on "Charlotte Jane" and Hanora in 1854 "Sir Edward Parry" left Ireland to come to South Australia.
I'm not finding anything on the right Honora - parents Martin & Catherine.

Thanks gibbo. :)

Something is not quite right. :biggrin:

The details of those two arrivals in post #10 from a tree indicated that those sisters married and had families in South Australia. :rolleyes:

There are other female BERMINGHAM marriages in NSW but only one at Binalong and several male ones in NSW as well around the same time.

Also a larger number with the name as BIRMINGHAM.


Going to have to assume Martin & Catherine are correct for parents and try to find siblings.

No deaths in NSW for male BERMINGHAM/BIRMINGHAMs with those parents.

I directly descend from John BERMINGHAM and Elizabeth ODELL via Hanora.

I have the family tree going back from the me to the ODELL surname and further back from Nesta Princess of Wales and Gerald de Windsor etc Naturally there are a lot of collateral families included. I live in Adelaide South Australia. If anyone wishes to communicate I can be contacted at -
