On 24th October 1846 five Guerin siblings arrived in Adelaide, South Australia aboard the ship Hooghly.
Lawrence (26yo), Bridget (23yo), Patrick (21yo). John (20yo) and Catherine (16yo).
The ship departed from Plymouth, England but the five siblings originated from Co. Clare, Ireland. Limited information is currently known about their life in Ireland.
This site will document information about the lives of the original siblings and descendants in Australia and continue the search for history of the family in Ireland. It will always welcome additional information, and corrections, to build an open family resource.
