I'm not a Mannix descendant, but William Mannix comes into my research, and I'd like to know more about him. Many Irish Catholic convicts were assigned to William Mannix of Upper Minto when they reached Australia, often at the beheast of the Catholic priest Fr Therry.
Those assigned included my great-great-great-grandfather Edward Browne, blacksmith, from Dublin arriving 1823 on Recovery 2. Browne was an Irish rebel (Ribbonite)and got term of his natural for administering an oath. It was his son Robert who founded the town of Albury.
The Browne family (after Edward was pardoned) settled initially at Appin, which was pretty much an all-Irish village on the southern outskirts of early Sydney town.
What do you know about William Mannix? I think he came out free, not to be confused with a later William Mannix, convict.
Hope to hear back from you,
