Hi Pat
I have a Kearns link possibly in Hacketstown John who married a Johanna McDonald I have found the birth of one of his children James but no other info in Ireland He was transported to Tasmania for larceny (stealing potatoes) 1846 and I'd be interested to hear if you recognise any of these names regards Chris in Tremont

Hi all
I have a John Kearns bn c 1814 transported to Oz 1846 His convict records suggest he was born in Wicklow but committed his crime, stole 2 cwt of potatoes, in Queens also on his records it says he had 5 children I have seen a record of 1 born in Hacketstown I know that 2 came with their mother to Oz at a later date So this is my question If the other three died before his wife followed him out here where in Queens do I even begin to start looking for these other children? I'm assuming because John committed his crime there he also had moved there to live at some stage any ideas appreciated Chris




John Kearns born 1814 in County Wicklow, Ireland, wed 1836 to Johanna McDonald. He was convicted of stealing 2cwt of potatoes, tried at Queens Court 26 Jun 1845, and sentenced to 7 years transportation. He arrived at Hobart, Tasmania 18 Jan 1846 on the 'Samuel Boddington' which left Dublin 23 Sep 1845 with 143 male convicts.
During his trial he said he had a wife and 5 children, and he applied that they join him in Tasmania.

From a friend on Tue, 15 Aug 2006

Thank you for your reply to my email about Eliza and William Kearns. They were married on the 26 March 1911. They are my husband's grandparents. They had four boys and Eliza was married previously to a Thomas Serong. Eliza had 5 children to Thomas Serong.
You might be able to help me with a missing Kearns that I cannot find. His name is Michael Kearns who married Mary Carlin in Ireland. They were Thomas Kearn's parents.
Also do you known anything about a Michael Kearns born 1836 and died 1926. He his buried at Warrnambool Victoria. His grave only shows a white cross with these dates on it. It is near our family but nobody seems to know who he is. Hoping you can help me.
Bye for now Pamela.

Michael Kearns 1836 - 1926 #8039 aged 90, parents unknown, died at Allansford
