Dear Pete, I'm answering your request re, Bridget Heslin and also re the baptisms you had on the end of your documents concerning no 17. 1833/5 John Heslin was my g.grandfather, he was the first male born to James Heslin and Mary Hughes ,they were married 1831 in Killoe. Ireland. John as a young man immigrated to Australia on the Ship
Donald McKay 1859 landed in victoria ,1862 he married a young Irish girl Ellen Ryan they had 4 daughters and 2 sons James Heslin and John Joseph Heslin who was my Grandfather.
If you would like to know anymore regarding the family please feel free to contact me.
I have strong feelings regarding Bridget that she may have been James Heslin sister but that I have to prove yet when she came to Aust,as a convict the spelling of her name was Esling but when she married here she stated she was Bridget Heslin.
Regards Lynaye Heslin Craig.
