Greetings Judith. Did you ever get any information on Richard Crosby? My g.g.grandfather Thomas Crosby was born c 1801 (don't know where) and had a sail and rope works in Dublin and thats where he died in 1882. He had 4 children - Eliza Jane (my g.grandmother - b. 1836) John E., Thomas Richard and James Joseph (came to Victoria late 19th century - b. Dublin c 1842). Are Richard and Thomas brothers ? Bill Lanigan. Melbourne.

Hi Bill,
Unfortunately the answer is no. Still don't know anything about his life in Ireland. The children of William who , although starting off in Hobart (they were allowed to come free to join him) seem to have ended up in NSW. Richard was from Navan County Meath and his wife Ann was from West Meath. She was living in Britain St Dublin when they sailed on the 'Ann Thompson' for Hobart. I have to admit that Irish research is a bit difficult so I have balked at really tackling it head on.
Someone must have been helping Ann when Richard left, so perhaps there were relatives in the area. Where was Thomas' rope works?

Business was Thomas Crosby & Son at North Wall Quay,(1850/60) Sir John Rogerson Quay(1860 on) and Brunswick St (all Dublin) at different times and lived in Amiens Street (have been in that house). Just looked on Google map for Britain Street - nearest reference is Britain Quay (on the River Liffey) which is a continuation of Sir John Rogerson Quay(North Wall Quay is diagonally opposite). Connections ??? Irish research is haard work. Bill.

Gt. Britain Street is the old name for what is now Parnell Street in Dublin North City. It was renamed in the 1890s.

You may already have seen on irishgenealogy.ie the baptisms of 4 Crosby/Crosbie children in Dublin 1830's to Richard Crosby and Anne Fagan.
Good luck!

Thanks for that site. I hadn't found it but have now found the baptisms. Ann had children Margaret, William Mary ann and a Richard with her when she came to Hobart so as there is a William among the four am pretty sure that is them.

Many thanks indeed for your help.

Cheers
Judith

I have a James Joseph Crosby born 1854 died 1938 in Randwick NSW. His father was William Crosby, mother Ann Scully. He married Ellen Hughs I believe.

Could this be the man you are looking for?

Thanks Judith. This James Joseph Crosby was born 1841-1842 in Dublin, son of Captain Thomas Crosby (all according to his obituary). James married Catherine and they had one son, Thomas Redmond Crosby. James and Catherine both died in Camperdown, Victoria, in 1918 and 1921 respectively.
