I need some help going back further than my 3x Great Grandparents James TRAINOR,Farmer,(1793-1883?) and Margaret CLARKE (1795-1839) from the Knockbride/Bailieborough area of Co.Cavan.There were 3 children that I know of, (although there could have been more,)John,(1813-1894),Anthony,(1814-1879), and my 2x Great Grandmother,Anne,(1819-1909),who all emigrated to Australia,arriving in late 1841.Anne and Anthony disembarked at Sydney in Nov.1841,then endured a rough trip overland to Melbourne by bullock dray,meeting up with their brother John who had arrived at Port Phillip in Dec.1841.They all travelled to Kilmore,Victoria,with John later settling in Urana,NSW,and raising a family there.Anne married William McMANUS,(1823-1892), from Ballyjamesduff,Co.Cavan, the son of Patrick McMANUS,Farmer,and Annie "Nancy" ROONEY in 1846 in the Roman Catholic church in Melbourne.They settled at Willowmavin,near Kilmore,Victoria,and raised 5 children-Patrick,Margaret,Mary,Annie and John.I would be very grateful for any information on these families in Co.Cavan.
