Hi all,

Thought you'd like to know that there are plenty of Fennessys in Australia. The shipping logs reveal we first arrived here in 1854 as follows:

Surname        Names       Age       Month       Year       Ship
FENNESSY       RICHD       28       JUL       1854       NORWOOD
FENNESSY       DAVID       21       JUN       1857       ADRIATIC
FENNESSY       ANN       9       MAY       1859       MARCO POLO
FENNESSY       JANE       17       MAY       1859       MARCO POLO
FENNESSY       ELIZTH       40       MAY       1859       MARCO POLO
FENNESSY       RICHD       48       MAY       1859       MARCO POLO
FENNESSY       JOHN       22       JUL       1860       WILLIAM KIRK
FENNESSY       EDMUND       25       SEP       1864       LIGHTNING
FENNESSY       CATHERINE 20       SEP       1865       WENNINGTON
FENNESSY       KATE       23       OCT       1868       SIR ROBERT SALE
FENNESSY       ELLEN       19       JAN       1879       THE DOUGLAS

The is log is great! As you can see, a whole family travelled here in 1859 and were probably my ancestors. Ah, Finola!

If you check the you'll see we've spread far and wide. My Nan had 12 kids, so we are sure to continue on!

There was a Michael Fennessy in the early 1900's who murdered someone and was hanged! I found this out when I took my girlfriend (now my wife) to the Old Melbourne Jail. And, she still married me!!
