Hi Brenda,
You are very welcome to the info on Catherine Mary English - and anyone else in my branch of my English family tree I research. I have a feeling we are related as I find your tree interconnecting with mine very often. RE information on the trail of Catherine Mary's immigration to Australia; I wanted to discover her occupation once arrived, and thanks to some helpful suggestions from RootsChat.com subscribers, I have found the likely immigration ship data & followed another suggestion to get a copy of her Australian marriage certificate. So,I have ordered a copy of Catherine and Louis's marriage certificate from the Queensland archives. This should tell us what she was doing prior to marriage. I am guessing she immigrated to Australia under a scheme of free passage offered by the colonial Australian government to entice more ladies to settle in the antipodes! Catherine and all her fellow "free" passengers on the "Duke of Argyle" 1886 list themselves as "domestic servants" - just the job qualification to get oneself passage "downunder" at this time. Once I have more info on her activities, I will let you know. Yes, I would appreciate your help in searching out my English branch in Ireland. I will email you a few questions, if I may?
