Hullo Thomas Haven't been to this forum for ages and see that you have had lots of good gen from Ralph who helped me considerably. Not that I have been able to find anything new about Bridget thus far. The information I have about her family comes from the shipping record when she arrived in Tasmanis where all arrivals were talked to and personal information recorded. She said that she had two brothers Michael (in New York) Peter (in the army) and sister Mary. Unfortunately she had only daughters and so no male names were available for us to look at but she did have two daughters Mary Ann and Louisa Margaret. I can link the May and Louisa to her husband's mother and sister but there is a chance that Ann and Margaret were family names from Bridget. I was in Carlingford in July this year and was told that Louth was under the control of the Bishop of Armagh in the 19th century but you probably know more about this than I do. There are some McGuinness (she sometimes spelt her name Maginnis - why not?) in Carlingford now but I did not contact them. Best of luck Patricia
