I am hoping that someone can help me regarding Mary Carew who married Michael Mahoney/Mahony. I cannot find a marriage for this couple in the State of Victoria in Australia. Nor can I find a birth for their son, there either. Their son was either registered as Thomas Francis Mahoney/Mahony or John Thomas Francis Mahoney/Mahony.
"John" claims he was born in the state of Victoria in Australia circa 1880 on his marriage certificate to Bertha Marie Radunz in Queensland in 1812 and also on the birth certificates of his children.
However, I have found the arrival in Victoria Australia in 1879, of a Michael 30 and Mary Mahoney 26 in July 1879 on board the "Ivanhoe", they had no children with them. I am hoping that SKS can help me with where would Michael and Mary come from? Would it have been Ireland, and if so, what County. Does anyone have a Mary Carew in their family. I would think that the names they gave their son, would connected with either the Mahoney or Carew family, that is John, Thomas and Francis.
