SMITH, James, farmer from Moy, Inverness, Scotland. A widower aged 60 when he arrived at Portland, Victoria on the ship Athletae in 1855 with his adult children.

A quote from following note compiled by Bev Rundell 1991 source Portland Guardian.:
The Athlete was a 1053 ton ship which sailed from Liverpool on the 23rd November 1854 under the command of Captain Henry Bradley. She carried 409 Immigrants consisting of 96 families, 66 single women and 66 single men on a voyage to Australia which took 87 days during which time the Surgeon Superintendant William Johnson Rowland reported that there were five deaths and six births on board during the voyage.
On the ships arrival at Portland Bay on 19th February, 1855 there were three cases of fever on board. In addition to the immigrants the Athlete carried a cargo of 2 cases Books; 41 crates Earthenware; 56 barrels Arsenic; 20 half hogsheads Vinegar; 1 hogshead Earthenware' 9 nusks Glass; 30 barrels Flour Sulpher; 66 bundles, 16 cases and 29 packages Iron; 1 cask Furniture; 2 ploughs and 1 set harness. Shortly after arrival fifteen crew members were sentenced to two months imprisonment with hard labour for refusing to do duty on board while anchored in the harbour.
Complaints were made to the Immigration Board of irregular conduct on board durng the voyage. One complaint was that the single females were being compelled to remain on deck at night to a late hour. They were also put in confinement for some weeks as punishment. It was apparently discovered that two secret passagers, one from the Captains Cabin and one from the Doctors cabin leading into the single womens quarters. The Captain and Doctor denied all charges. The Athlete sailed from Portland on 31st March 1855 bound for Callao in ballast.

Cahill

Your Jeremiah Cahill and wife Mary Maher were my great great grandparents.
Jas Cahill 26 came on the Forth departed Plymouth on 25 May 1841, with Mary Maher 24 and William, a 3 month old son, and arrived in Melbourne on 19 Sept 1841, with William dying not long after.
Had trouble finding this information as Jeremiah is listed as "Jas" on the shipping records, I'm sure Jeremiah's middle name was James. In total they had 9 children, most of them being born in the Merri Creek/ Pentridge area before they went to Kilmore, and then settled in Mooroopna

Michael Cain

From on Mon, 12 Nov 2007
Michael Cain had eight children all born in Yackandandah to his wife Bridget Mary Meehan. Two of those eight children are listed on your website along with other families to other wives, as far away from Yackandandah as Hawthorn, Richmond, Sandhurst & Chewton. There is just no way that Michael could have done all that travel on foot or on horseback. The same year that he married Bridget Mary Meehan in Beechworth Michael Cain is listed as having a child in Sandhurst to another woman, Bridget Murphy, actually wife of a 2nd Michael Cain. That is followed by one of the correct entries, his daughter Bridget, born & died 1856 at Yackandandah. Michael Cain of Yackandandah's next four children are missing & replaced by a John Cain born to yet another Michael Cain (now the 3rd Michael Cain) in Richmond. One of Michael Cain of Yackandandah's missing children was born the same year, 1862, as one of the inserted entries, a Catherine Cain born to the 3rd Michael Cain in Richmond. Then the Margaret listed in 1866 is not the Margaret who was born at Yackandandah, so that birth entry is wrong, but it is tied to a correct entry for the Margaret Cain born at Yackandandah really did marry John Mongan (great work on the Mongans by the way, unflawed by this type of error.
You were half right when you said "surname changes with each child", but you were referring to the wife's surname only. That's why I say "half right". Certainly Meehan also gets recorded as Mahon & meagher by registrars unable to understand Bridget Mary Cain nee Meehan's Irish accent. But if you check out the other half of the story, the husband's side, you will find that Cain also gets spelt many ways, & that if you only look up Cain entries in the indexes you will get a lucky dip of children from the three different Michael Coins. If you check the other spelling's for the husband's name you will find that Michael Cain of Yackandandah was born Kean, migrated to Australia as Kain (not 1854 as stated, that may be one of the other Michael Cains), married as Cine (I suppose that replicates the Kean or Keane variations), had his older children born as Cain, the middle children born as Cane & I am still looking for the younger children whose names I obtained from the family.

Michael Cain came c1859 with Bridget Dughin/Duggan and lived at Richmond
