Searching for James Stretton who married my Great-Great Grandmother Mary Ann Fitzgerald.
James was born in Killorglan, Co. Kerry, Ireland 1812 and Mary Ann in Limerick, Ireland 1828.

They immigrated to NSW Australia on the St Vincent which arrived in Sydney 11 March 1849 and their passage details state:
Children - William Fitzgerald Stretton age 6 born Sax...???, Suffolk plus Richard (infant) born London, Middlesex.

James is listed as a "Gardener" and Mary Ann as a "Dressmaker".

James paid an "extra 5 pounds on the usual deposit" and it says that he had been an "outdoor servant and was for some time working at Kerstoford" (unfortunatley the writing on the document only allows a guess at KERSTOFORD.

Any info will be appreciated,
