Hello Once Again Roy,
Still in search of my McMenamin line, I came across an interesting link contained within your pages. Though I cannot find the reference on your pages - the find tells me that you have listed an Alfred Perrett, parents George and Amelia.
I have a Wilson Perrett marrying Lillian Kate McMenamin in Singleton in 1904 and settling in West Maitland. Wilson was born to George and Amelia in 1876. He was one 12 children born to the couple, all registered in Patrick Plains Shire. I have an Alfred born in 1867, as per the NSW Birth Death & Marriage historical indexes - but I have known information to be incorrect. I think your Alfred may belong to me. What do you think?
I look forward to a reply from you.

The Perrett's lived at Patrick Plains.

I woule be interested in further information.

My great grandmother was Mary Anne Perrott born Cork county Cork Ireland to Thomas Perrott and his wife Abigail (surname not known). She was 18 when she boarded the "Herald" assisted passenger as a house servant in 1844; arrived Sydney 9 Feb 1845 and married William Haye (Hay) at Marulan on 25 April 1847. They were both employed at Caoura a property near Tallong in NSW. In 1850 their first child was baptised at Billy Bong (Walla Walla NSW) and they resided at Howlong until they died. I would appreciate any information on the Cork Perrott's.
