Hello, the James Goggins I am connected with was born 1816 - probably in Westmeath although the family is said to have called Cork home. His parents were Billy and Mary Goggins and he had five brothers Pat Tom William Mick and John and a sister Mary. James married Mary Newman and had 2 daughters and 1 son. James was encarcerated in Mullingar Assize February 1847 and after petioning for clemency and reduction in sentance he was transported to Tasmania ariiving January 1849. His family came to Tasmania in 1856 after he had completed his term of transportation. The property James and Mary were allocated remains within the family to this day.
David is not a family name within this family.
