Edit

John Carmody was born in Kilmihil, County Clare about 1813 and, together with his wife Bridget and infant daughter Margaret, came out to Australia arriving in Sydney in June 1851. Sadly his daughter Margaret died on the voyage out. John and Bridget settled in the lower Hunter Region, north of Sydney, where John acquired virgin land which he cleared and farmed, surviving floods, droughts and bush fires. They had 6 more children who, in turn, produced for John and Bridget 36 grandchildren and 161 great grandchildren. John died in March 1905.
