  • Notes 
    • Margaret emigrated to Australia in 1872 to marry her fiance John .

      After much research,I have come to the conclusion Margaret arrived in Melbourne,not Sydney.

      There are no records located to prove that she arrived in Sydney , but there is a record of a 23 years Irish lass named Margaret Woods, a farm servant, arriving in Melbourne,on the Colonial Empire ,on the 24th September 1872 .(The Colonial Empire departed Plymouth, UK, on the 22 June 1872)

      This record aligns with the family spoken history that after arriving she was accompanied by a colleague of Johns on the 3 week journey in order to be married in Hay NSW on 17th October 1872 . Hay is approx 400 km North of Melbourne by road
