Pat Purcell Papers

Holligan, 1850s

Letter to Pat Purcell dated July 1977 from Public Record Office, Melbourne, Vic. Australia. [this enquiry may be a search for relatives of deceased person in order to distribute estate!]

Dear Sir,
We have the following entry for Michael Holligan, aged 36, Agricultural Labourer, his wife Margaret, aged 30, both were able to read only, and their children Patrick, aged 3 and infant Ann. They came from Carlow, Ireland. Departed from Liverpool on 18/05/1851, arrived in Melbourne on 21/09/1851 on the ship "Stamboul", having sailed for 126 days. They moved to Geelong on 28/09/1851.
Is it possible for you to enquire if there are relatives living in the Carlow area today?
