John Mylrea

The first family in Victoria, Australia, was John Mylrea and Alice Warren, who lived in the Wimmera area, north of Portland Bay, in 1846 when William was born, then moved to Port Fairy, and later Lexton. They were married 1853 #23849, at the Church of England, Christ Church, Geelong, five years after their eldest two children were Christened by the Presbyterian minister for Pyrenees & Port Fairy. Few clergy ventured into the outer reaches of Port Phillip, with Melbourne just declared a city, and the county still 8 years to separation from New South Wales.

In Response To: Re: MYLREA surname (Brett Reynolds)
Interested in Mylrea surname, & in particular a William Mylrea on the Isle of Man who married Isabella about 1812. She was the widow of Stephen Cowley and her maiden name was Corkhill. William and Isabella had 2 sons and 2 daughters including Edward Mylrea born in Liverpool in 1835. Isabella later emigrated to Australia with Edward, and a married daughter in 1858. A son from her first marriage, William Cowley was already in Australia. A nephew, John Mylrea married to Alice Warren was also already in Australia. I think William Mylrea's father was a John Mylrea and that William was born on the Isle of Man. Can anyone add anything to any of this?

From on Saturday, 20 September, 2008
I'm writing a book about John Mylrea and you're right - he was a shepherd, but at Decameron in 1846 when William was born and then at Woodstock when Isabella was born. He went on to own the Lexton Hotel before going to Qld and becoming quite a significant pastoralist.
I'd be very keen to know about the John Mylrea who was living at Port Fairy in 1848, and any other info you come across in the Mylrea vein. At this stage, I'm still trying to figure out WHEN he arrived in Australia and if he came with someone - such as an uncle. He was very young to have come alone.
