Searching for ancestral lineage of Anne/Anna McBride born circa 1800-1810, thought to be daughter of James McBride of Antrim or County Down, Northern Ireland.

Anna McBride married James Moore of Newtownards County Down in circa 1826. James was a flax/grower farmer and leased
land from the Marquis of Londonderry.
Known children:

in 1860. She was born in 1841 - place unknown, parents

and is buried with William at St Elizabeth's

Presbyterian Church, Dundonald. They were farmers -

growers of Flax and leased their land from the Marquis

of Londonderry.

Kirkpatrick family were from Northern Ireland but Grace

came to Western Australia and married

John K. Kirkpatrick in c.1904 at Kalgoorlie.

They later moved to Donnybrook, Western Australia and

became early pioneers there. Their family had married

into the Bowden family and the Coulter family - the

grandsons of today are named Arthur BOWDEN Kirkpatrick

and Robert Murray COULTER Kirkpatrick.
5. MARTHA MOORE - went to Victoria, Australia, probably

to join her Aunt Elizabeth Rea (nee Moore). Martha

married Percy Bowery in Victoria and had 4 daughters.

6. ELLEN MOORE - went to Toronto, Canada, Thought to have

married an Irwin - either married in Northern Ireland

or in Canada. Had 4 boys and 3 daughters - and must

have been widowed because husband does not appear in

Days. Married Amelia Maryanne Burns, daughter of Jane

nee Burns and Samuel Williams. Robert and Amelia later

settled in Perth. Children: Robert Burns Moore (dec.)

and twins, my father,Lindsay Auburn Moore (dec),

and William Henry Moore.

JAMES MOORE my great great grandfather who married Anna McBride, is thought to be son of a William Moore who was married to someone 'Lin' which may stand for surname of Lindsay. It is thought that James' brothers included
CHARLES MOORE who married JANE KENNEDY in 1834
JOHN MOORE who married SARAH LOWRY in 1834
THOMAS MOORE who married MARY WALLACE in c1834
SAMUEL MOORE (?)
ALEXANDER MOORE (?)
HUGH MOORE (?)
The brothers were all growers of Flax. If anyone has any information regarding any of the families mentioned, it would be most appreciated. Thank you.
