Can anyone help with info on Francis Philbin. Born c1811 in Kilmore Co Sligo (as far as I can tell). He married Mary Mulrooney in Castleconnor, Co Sligo on 6-12-1835. Two children born - John on 30-5-1839 and Thomas on 23-5-1841.
Francis was tried in Co Mayo in 1847 and transported for 10 years. He was first sent to Bermuda before being sent to Tasmania, arriving in 1850. He remarried in Tasmania before settling in Bendigo, Victoria. Here in Australia the name is now Filbin. Don't know what happened to Mary and the two boys.
Have tried to trace the trial records and/or newspaper reports of his trial, but so far no success!! Anyone got any ideas where to fo from here?
Great site - hope to hear from someone. Jeddah
