Hi Jerry, I am a decendant of a Michael Tierney who was born in Limerick Ireland. It is believed that he was transported to Australia for a period of 7 yrs and he married a Catherine Cormie in Armidale NSW. However they had 7 children. I don't know if this is a match with your inquiry. What was your GG's name?

Hi Adele-The Michael Tierney that I am trying to find was found guilty of a firearms offence in Kings County, March 1835 and transported on the Lady McNaughton. He was married at the time having both a son and daughter. I am trying to find out if he could be a brother of my great-great grandfather TIMOTHY TIERNEY tried in Tipperary March 1835 on a similar charge and off to Australia for life. He died in 1872-I have a death certificate regarding that. You did not mention what ship your Michael was on. It would be nice if your Michael is the one I am seeking. Thank you very much for taking the time to answer my message.

Hi,
I have just seen your message. Michael Tierney & Catherine Cormie were my husband's great great grandparents. Their son Charles had a daughter Florence Tierney Eadie who was my husband's grandmother. I havn't found info that Michael was a convict. Can you verify? However, I recently discovered that Catherine's father George Cormie was possibly transported to NSW around 1827. Would like to hear from you.

Hi Jerry. I have a copy of the Schedule of deaths in the district of St. Arnaud in the colony of Victoria 1888. This is the year my husband's gg grandfather died. This is a copy obtained through the BMD registry office in Melbourne. It contains quite a lot of useful information. Accordingly this Michael Tierney was about 3 years old when he arrived in Australia. I have not come across any suggestion that his parents Patrick and/or Bridget Reynolds Tierney were convicts. Also have a schedule of death of Catherine Cormie Tierney who died in Melbourne in 1928. Marjorie

Hi Jerry, since posting the original message I have discovered that my Michael Tierney DOB 2/10/1833 was born in Limerick Ireland, and baptised at St.John's R.C Church Limerick Ireland he died 1/8/1888, buried at St. Arnauld Cemetery Vic Aus. He was the son of Patrick Tierney (born Clondalkin Dublin Irl)and Bridget Reynolds. Michael came out to Australia on the ship the Hive and then the Zebra with his parents and sister Margaret. Patrick was a soldier in the 28th regiment and the family later settled in the Armidale NSW area. During the gold rush Michael and his wife Catharine Cormie moved to Vic. Michael was a boundry rider by occupation at Cope Cope Station near St. Arnauld Vic.

My brother over 10 years ago had found,a Michael Tierney who was transported from Ireland to Aus for 7 yrs from Tipperary. (1 x article with limited info for memory.) However this is not the Michael Tierney from which we decend, as I have since discovered. The Pioneer Register of New England(NSW) is a valuable source for Patrick Tierney and Bridget Reynolds offspring. It lists all of the offspring and the children of Michael and Catherine @ Catharine Tierney. Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

Hope to hear from one or both of you re Michael Tierney, son of Patrick & Bridget Tierney. Just want to confirm that this family did arrive on the ship Hive (I hope). I am writing a book about those on board. However there was also a convict named Patrick Tierney who sailed in her. Have heard from his descendant and his story is quite different from Private P Tierney of 28th Regt. so there's no confusion about the outcome for both men.
However, can you confirm for me that the soldier Patrick Tierney was definitely on board - I have not found anything to prove he was not but I want to be sure. Have you found some memorial or a BDM certificate, perhaps for Michael, that says he was on board?
