Hello,

Margaret was born abt 1847 in Co Clare, Ireland and arrived with family in 1855:

CHERRY Margaret 8 'Mangerton' 1855 Sydney and/or Newcastle and family Reel 2137, [4/4792]; Reel 2471, [4/4952]

NSW marriage 6024/1882 MACKENZIE JOHN A - CHERRY MAGGIE AGNES MARY - ARMIDALE

August 1893 is the last reference I can find for Maggie.

Regards,

Dave

This is all I have on John. :2fun:

Marriage 6024/1882 MACKENZIE JOHN A - CHERRY MAGGIE AGNES MARY - ARMIDALE

It seems from the notice he had died or they divorced or whatever.

No sign of a divorce.

Only one death for a John A and that's at Woonona which is south of Sydney and not near Armidale.

Lots of others 1882-1893.

This could help. Looks like several children:

3785/1883 MACKENZIE MARY G - JOHN A - MAGGIE M - BALMAIN
29/1884 MACKENZIE VIOLET M - JOHN A - MARGARET M - SYDNEY
4789/1886 MACKENZIE ALICK F - JOHN A - MAGGIE M A - BALMAIN
5396/1890 MACKENZIE MARY M V - JOHN A - MARGARET - BALMAIN


Looks like 2 deaths:

2254/1883 MACKENZIE MARY G - JOHN A - MAGGIE - BALMAIN

26386/1944 MACKENZIE ALICK FRANCIS - JOHN ALEXANDER - MARGARET - NEWTOWN

Lots of other John As but no births after 1890 with mother = Margaret/Maggie.

Relation in a colony is a son Martin CHERRY living in Pitt Street.

The eldest son who arrived in 1848:

Dave are you sure you have that right? :confused:

CHERRY Anne 39 Mangerton 1855 so Ann would have been born around 1816
and supposedly son Martin was 21 in 1848 so would have been born around 1827 = Ann would have been 11 when she had him.

CHERRY Martin Cronin Death notice 28AUG---- Death 72 late of Balmain Sydney Morning Herald 29AUG1898

His age fits his age on the passenger list.......... im still not convinced he belongs to them. Could he be a step son to Ann maybe John was married before:confused:

Of course no mother on his death reg:

Death 8674/1898 CHERRY MARTIN - JOHN - UNKNOWN - BALMAIN SOUTH

Several Funeral notices:

The Sydney Morning Herald - Monday 29 August 1898 p.8

Ok, that is not much help. It mentions a brother Patrick but that's such a common name.
No mention of any of the three sisters. Two had died and the third was probably in a mental hospital - that's where she died.

No death 1850-1950 in NSW for another Martin with father = John.

So either it's the wrong Martin or his mother died in Ireland.

Ok, one other thing does not fit. He was from Co Limerick and the rest were from Co Clare.

Is there another Martin CHERRY from Co Clare who arrived before 1855?

This mob but that can't fit if mentioned one son already in colony:

CHERRY Ann 19 Oriental 1850 Sydney and/or Newcastle and sisters Reel 2136, [4/4786] Page 569; Reel 2461, [4/4918]
CHERRY Bridget 22 Oriental 1850 Sydney and/or Newcastle and sisters Reel 2136, [4/4786] Page 569; Reel 2461, [4/4918]

CHERRY Margaret 20 Oriental 1850 Sydney and/or Newcastle and sisters Reel 2136, [4/4786] Page 569; Reel 2461, [4/4918]
CHERRY Martin 20 Oriental 1850 Sydney and/or Newcastle and brother Reel 2136, [4/4786] Page 569; Reel 2461, [4/4918]
CHERRY Mary 24 Oriental 1850 Sydney and/or Newcastle and sisters Reel 2136, [4/4786] Page 569; Reel 2461, [4/4918]

They are from a different town in Co Clare.

Why do I have this family in my tree? :rolleyes:

If Martin is a step-son then he is 'attached' to Anne's record because there was already one 'attached' to John's.

John CHERRY age 46 born Dunnas, Co. Clare, parents are Patrick & Winifred (both dead).
Relation in a colony is a sister Mary CHERRY per "Caroline".

The Sydney Morning Herald - Tuesday 22 March 1881 p.1
MARRIAGES
CHERRY-EASTMURE.-February 14, at St. Augustine's, Balmain, by the Rev. G. F. Dillon, Martin Cronin Cherry, to Clara Josepha, third daughter of the late Joseph Eastmure.

I don't know if that one is on film. Even if it is it may not mention his parents.
