William was a soldier who settled at Lingan. He married Bridget Lee who was likely the daughter of Thomas Lee and Ann unknown of Lingan. Thomas was named in Alexander Lee of Main-a-Dieu's will in the 1770s as getting land at Lingan. William had two sons Matthew and Michael. All of the Cathcarts descend from these two sons. I descend from Matthew. Something tells me that I have seen your name before and you descend from Michael and his wife Mary Walsh. Matthew married Catherine (Maurice) Doyle.
The early record for the Cathcarts are at St. George's in Sydney and then Sacred Heart. They seem to have become Catholics. Maybe there was no Catholic Church early on so they went to St. George's.
Bye for now, cousin Vince
