    You are right about the John and Lucy. There was an 18 year old Mary Noonan from County Clare on the same ship.

    John(24) and Mary (18) were listed separately on the Jalawar so may have been brother and sister rather than husband and wife. In the appendix for the Alfred sailing to New Zealand John is listed...

    Have just seen in the Appendix that the McNamara family are also listed as sailing to New Zealand on the Alfred in 1864. This time Michael is listed, but after John, so presumably he was born in...
