Mary J Maloney married James Ahern in Sydney NSW (Australia) in 1855
I am chasing up family history for my great grandparents (on my dad's side). A Mary J (Jane?) Maloney/Moloney and James Ahern were married at a Presbyterian church in Sydney on March 25th 1855. I am unsure if they came to Australia with family or not, or when they came here from either Ireland or England.

From my NSW births history search, I have established that they may have had the following children, all born in Paddington (inner Sydney) unless otherwise mentioned:-

Bridget - born 1857 (at Maitland)

James and Mary J (twins? James died in 1959 - possibly at birth?)

James - born 1861 (possibly named after his father and late brother?)

Elizabeth - born 1862

William - born 1864

Edward - born 1866 (my Great Grandfather)

Florence A - born 1869

Albert Victor -born 1873

Isabella - born 1875

Edith - born 1876

On Mary's side, she was born in County Armagh Ireland and was 27 years old (in 1866) which would have made her birth year on or around 1839.

I would appreciate any info which would assist me in establishing exactly where in Armagh Mary lived and where her extended family is.

Cheers, Mark
