Jane Cullen (b abt 1820) James Somers/Summers to Australia
Posted by: Marci Young (ID *****9728) Date: February 04, 2013 at 04:21:55

I am trying to trace a Jane Cullen (born about 1820 or so) that married James Somers/Summers and had two sons - one James and I don't know the other one. She died when the two boys were quite young. I'm fairly certain that James Sr came to Australia (with her or not, I'm not sure), I am sure that James Jr did, and his descendants are all here (Australia).

We have been told that Jane is from Ireland and that James is from England. The family story is that she was sister to Cardinal Cullen and a cousin to Archbishop Moran, but I just don't seem to be able to tie that down.

We have also been told that James is from the Somers/Cocks line of Reigate and Eastnor, but I can't seem to find that either.

Does anyone have any information that might help solve this Irish/English/Australian mystery?
regards

Marci
