TIPPERARY EMIGRANTS TO VICTORIA- Bios

This page is  a supplement to the "Tipperary Emigrant Indexes"
 described below.


I will gladly include details of any emigrants that researchers
 have identified as having left from Tipperary and travelled 
to Victoria. These will be summarised below under
appropriate surname headings, and will include a contact
 address for the researcher.

Joan Vivian turoar@bigpond.com 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.
