LOWRY Here are details of Mary and Bridget Lowry.
Thomas Lowry of Knockanree parish of Boherlahan married Bridget Blake of
Knockanree on 5 February 1821. They had Ned, Margaret, Bridget (1831), Mary
(1834), Charlotte, Catherine and Thomas (not necessarily in that order).
Most were born at Ballatarsne/Betarsna.
I haven't been able to verify when and why Bridget and Mary came to
Australia in the 1850s. Bridget married Emmanuel Webster on 3 March 1859 in
Melbourne. She died 31 July 1918. Mary married Benjamin Selwyn/Selwin 16
November 1859 in Melbourne and died 10 September 1909.
Catherine may have come to Australia in 1854 in the Champion of the Seas.
In Ireland Ned married Bridget Maher 1858. Margaret married Pat McQuire
1860. Ann married Michael Ryan 1862. Catherine married John Ryan 1861.
I have the life stories of Mary and Bridget and their children in Victoria.
