Hi I'm trying to find any details of the above Ambrose and Simon McGuiggan were brothers send to NSW in 1797 (convicts) on the Britannia.

It seems that Simon was living with Susannah ROBERTS and had a son with him named Alexander born c1804.

In August 1814 Susannah claimed financial support from Simon with whom she co-habitated for the space of two years. This was reported in Petitions in Bastardy 1808-1814 Bench of Magistrates.

I'm trying to find out if Alexander married had children etc as it seems he is my GGGrandfathes half brother. Susannah had another son William BURN/BYRNE, on Williams daughters baptism SUSAN 1826 Alex and Sarah McGuigan are the Sponsors. Any help or advice would be very much appreciated kind regards Dianna
