Dear Roy Andrews
I am trying to find a family by the name of LAHY. I recently received some information from 'Immigration Depositors Journal Files' which stated 3 of the Lahy family from Ruthsdown in Co. Kilkenny Ireland arrived in the ship 'Fairlie' on 4-5-1863. It states that their relative in Australia was James Lahy who lived in Singleton.
Can you tell me where I would find further information about persons living in Singleton during 1863 or thereabouts.
Any information would be much appreciated.
Regards
Cienwen Hickey

Hi Roy,
I am looking for the same James Lahey as Cienwen.He sponsored 3 of his siblings to NSW from Ireland and they arrived in April 1863.At that time James was living at Singelton.A James Leahy married Jane Wellard 1863 in Armidale.In 1871,1872,and 1874 three unnamed Lahey children died in Armidale area with parents listed as James Lahey and Eliza Jane Leahy.James was a Port Macquarie convict at some stage,I believe, but I can find no convict record for him.Does anyone know anything about this man who was living at Singleton 1863.I think he may have had a second marriage.He may even be the James Leahy married to Elizabeth Maher, married 1873 at Patrick's Plains.Any help to pin him down is greatly appreciated.

James Lahey came to australia as a convict in 1838. He was an army man in India and tried to stab his adjudicant (sp?) He married Martha Eaton in India and she followed him to australia. They had a total of 11 children. He was endentured to Major Archibald CLunes Innes in Port Macquarie as a butler. At the end of his time of 7 years deportation, he signed a contract to run the Yarras Wool Pack Inn for Major Innes. Yarras is west of Port macquarie on the oxley hwy. He also bought land in the area and had a homestead and orange grove. He died in Tia (east of Walcha)and is buried in a private grave on property currently named Ravenswood at Yarras

I am also looking for information on a James Lahey who worked on Fossil Down Station in Western Australia for many years in the early 1900s, he died in Wyndham (WA) in 1939. His death certificate does not provide much details about his family. It indicates he was about 69 years old when he died. Could he be one of the 11 children of James Lahey & Martha Eaton? Janice, are you aware of their children details? Appreciate any information. Thanks
