I am a descendent of Thomas Seery bc 1828 in Ireland and who emigrated to Australia in 1860. On arrival he sponsored Michael (younger) Seery's travel to Australia (arrived 1861). I am yet to find definitive proof that they were brothers but it is accepted that Michael's parents were Michael Seery and Anne Cowley of Dublin. Both Thomas and Michael were Constables in the first intake of the newly formed New South Wales Police Service (1862) but left to farm the land.
They married the Limond sisters (from Scotland) and had very large families. Thomas's will mentioned both a brother John and also a son named John.
Due to the very large number of Seery families in Ireland with a majority moving to America, Canada and some to England it has been hard to trace the families here in Australia
I am aware of Seery families currently living in Ireland and descendents of both Thomas ande Michael in Australia. There is another local Seery family that came to Australia in 1835 and others that live in other states of Australia but nearly all arriving from Ireland
