My 2xgreat grandmother, Dorothy Graham (also went under the names Dora and Dorothea) emigrated from Belfast, Ireland on 8 June 1852 on the 'Carisbrook Castle' to New Zealand. On her marriage certificate she states she is from Ireland. On 5 of her childrens birth certificates she is stated as being from Ireland, then on the last 3 it states she is from Armagh, Ireland.
My great uncle had a chest of treasures that I was once allowed to peak at, and found a confirmation certificate for Dorothy's sister, Hannah Mary Graham, at St Marks, Grange, Armagh, Ireland on 29 September 1852 by Rev. Henry Cobble. I have traced Hannah to Australia - alas no family living - but on her marriage certificate she gave her parents as John Graham and Hannah Courtney and her date of birth as 1839.
There is a big gap between Hannah b 1839 and Dorothy b 1852 so there must be other children, but I can not locate any information on this family.
Can someone give me any pointers on where to look. If Hannah was confirmed that that make them catholic or protesant?
Thank you, Leila
