Migrated to/Born in New Zealand

Annie was the youngest child of John O'Rourke and Mary Morris of Fermanagh, Ireland. She was born in Derrylea, Linaskea, County Fermanagh on 15 October 1867. Her birth was registered by Mary Jane Corry who was present at birth. Her baptism is recorded in the Galloon register on 26 October 1867, her sponsors were Phil Gunn and Margaret McManus. Her siblings were Ellen O'Rourke, Mary O'Rourke, Catherine O'Rourke, John O'Rourke and Francis Morris O'Rourke who were all born in Ireland but I am not sure where. Sisters Ellen and Mary O'Rourke emigrated to New Zealand on 4 December 1875 as Assisted Immigrants. They were followed by their sister Catherine O'Rourke and a cousin Rose Morris on 12 November 1876 on the Wiltshire. The remaining family, parents John and Mary, siblings John, Francis and Annie emigrated in 1879.
