Michael BYRNE Salt Boiler
Posted by: Dianna Charles (ID *****8862) Date: November 07, 2011 at 22:38:12

Hi everyone
Further to my Michael BYRNE research, it seems from records I have looked at today (NSW Archives Office Sydney) my Michael BYRNE (BURNE also) is putting in an application to the Governor to lease the salt-pan, in Sydney Harbour.

Michael states "I humbly beg leave to submit to your excellency that having been bred to the manufactory of that article from my infancy and the thorough knowledge I have of the process qualifying me for such an undertaking etc.

Michael arrived Sydney a convict on the "Minerva" in 1800 aged about 25 a native of Kildare (said Cotton Manufacturer on indent).

My question is can I find out any more about Michael being involved in this industry in Ireland, would his father possibly have been a salt boiler also, was there an apprenticeship process. Anything I could find out would add another dimension to Michaels life. Any help much appreciated Kind regards Dianna
