Below is the information I have. I also visited the family home in 2005 and have pictures if you're interested....
Patrick Kinsella was born at the family property at Rathellen, a rural area near the towns of Leighlinbridge and Bagenalstown in County Carlow. He married Jane Hanly in May 1962.
Jane was from Tipperary and was born in 1846. Jane's parents names were John and Sarah, and they were storekeepers.
On December 13 1862 they set sail from Queenstown, Cork, aboard the "Golden City", bound for Moreton Bay. The "Golden City" arrived in Australia on March 4 1863. They then took the steamship Yarra Yarra from Brisbane to Sydney on 5 April 1863. I have a copy of the passenger list if you're interested.
Patrick and Jane settled in Darlinghurst, Sydney where he was a police sargeant and later moved to Glen Innes where he became court officer. After bearing 12 children, the youngest in 1885, his wife died at Glen Innes on 30 December 1887, at the age of 41.
Patrick married Mary Jane Shannon in Glen Innes on 3 November 1890. Mary Shannon was born on 6 August 1865 at St. Heliers near Muswellbrook. She was a school teacher in Glen Innes at the time of her marriage. She bore the six children referred to above, the first four of whom were born at Glen Innes and the last two, Nano and Clare at Wagga Wagga. Patrick was transferred there in 1890 as Sheriff's Officer of the Court.
After retirement he and his family moved to Sydney where he died at 39 Albany St, Crow's Nest. He is buried at Rookwood.
