There is unlikely to be a connection but a Francis Branagan was executed in Melbourne gaol on 29 April 1857. You can see his name on the Melbourne gaol website. I am checking to see if he's one of my ancestors. Would seem likely he was one of the 'convicts' sent from Britain. Most of my Branagans/Brannigans were in Cheshire (Chester and Stalybridge) and originated from Mayo. I have a list of several families in Chester in the 1861 census and others in the 1881 census and numerous certificates.
