Other Irwin Families

This page contains charts of (so far) unrelated Irwin families. Mostly included are Irwin families who appear in the same geographical areas as the Irwin's of Cavey (Ballygawley), although I have also included several other Irwin families that I have researched or received trees from other researchers. In one sense this is a working chart - should I find any of the families listed on this page are in fact connected to the Cavey Irwin's, they will be moved to the relevant charts - so if you are revisiting this page and find a particular Irwin family has 'vanished', try the other links above. Irwin researchers please feel free to submit corrections and additions to the charts listed on this page (email contact). If you have an Irwin family that is not included on this page from Co Tyrone, Australia or New Zealand, feel free to contact me if you want it included.

Estimated DOB from typical age range of a Class 1 student. I have been unable to find any further trace of this Robert}



Robert was one of many Irwins who emigrated from Ireland to New Zealand. Robert arrived in 1865 on the same ship that carried his pregnant wife-to-be. His wife had a son who wa born the year she arrived in New Zealand. The birth was not registered so it is impossible to determine whether she fell pregnant prior to departing from Ireland, on the voyage or after her arrival in New Zealand.


1. Robert Irwin, born c.1834, Northern Ireland.[394] Died 1903, Auckland, New Zealand (pensioner).[394] {Robert's wife's death certificate gives her parents as Robert Irwin and M. Hughes, which is thought to possibly be her husband's parents - her father was in fact Richard.[394]} Teacher, labourer, fish monger (variously, at different times).[394] "Robert bought land in the Tuakau area but abandoned it when the original land development scheme fell through, moving to Auckland where he lived for many years at Abercrombie St. He was extremely litigant & was frequently mentioned in the local newspapers. He was the first recipient of a New Zealand  Old Age Pension in 1899. His wife Marcella seems to have been the chief breadwinner, and on one occasion prosecuted her husband for violence towards her."[394] Emigrated to New Zealand, departed 4/11/1864 from Cork, Ireland & arrived Auckland, 14/2/1865, on the 'Ganges'.[394]
In 1878, "Wife Beating. Robert Irwin was charged with having assaulted his wife, Marcella Irwin, by striking her with his clenched fist on the face and head, by pulling her hair, and by taking up an axe and threatening therewith to have her life. The prisoner said it was quite true that they had a bit of a squabble, but all that had been set out in the information had not taken place. He would, however, admit the charge. Irwin was accordingly bound over in his own bond for 10 and two sureties for 5 each to keep the peace for six months (New Zealand Herald, 5/1/1878)."[394]
Married Susanna Marcella Sophia Irvine nee Waters, 9/5/1865, St Matthew's, Auckland, New Zealand.[394] Died 28/10/1880, Abercrombie Street, Auckland, New Zealand (40yo).[394] Marcella, d/o Richard Waters, was previously married to John Irvine & emigrated to New Zealand on the same ship as Robert Irwin, listed as a widow.[394] Resided 1867, Taukau, New Zealand.[394] Resided 1868, Graham Street, Auckland, New Zealand.[394] Resided 1872, 1880, Abercrombie Street, Auckland, New Zealand.[394]

Other Irwin's of Co Tyrone, Ireland

Matthew & his family first appear at Terlugan in 1827. Originally spelt "Terlugan", the modern spelling is "Tirelugan", located in the parish of Carnteel, near Aughnacloy, Co Tyrone, Ireland. Some of this family moved to Ballygawley in the mid to late 1800's. Matthew is not listed in the 1796 Flax & Spinning Wheel list for Co Tyrone, suggesting he may have not been native to Co Tyrone, Ireland.

A more likely placement is as the s/o John & Anne, for two main reasons: Matthew (1823) named his 2 eldest children John & Anne & traditional naming practices suggest those names could also be his parents. 2ndly, if Matthew was the s/o Matthew Sr, then there would have been a 30 year gap between the birth of John & that of Matthew Jr, an uncomfortably large gap, especially since there is no evidence John was his first child. Note also that while John & Anne were born about 1800, their first confirmed child was not born until 1833, which seems quite late.

Hugh briefly appears in Ballygawley (strictly speaking the civil parish of Errigal Keerogue) in the mid 1800's, the son of a John Irwin. John's parentage & origin is unknown.

Whilst spending many generations in Co Tyrone, this family is unlikely to be connected with the other Irwin's of Co Tyrone charted here or to the Cavey (Ballygawley) Irwin's. The following family was (is) a titled family from Scotland, possibly arriving in Co Tyrone with the Ulster Plantation, although a rather colourful family legend claims the family fled to Ireland after the failed attempt to put Bonnie Prince Charles on the throne of Scotland. In contrast, the other known Irwin families of Co Tyrone have all be farmers, either yeoman farmers or peasants. The following family also made their home in the far north of Co Tyrone, whilst all the other charted Irwin families of Co Tyrone were in the far south.


1. Robert Irvine, of Artamford, near Aberdeen, Scotland.[307] Born before 1680. Descended from the fifth son of the eighth Baronial Laird of Drum Aberdeenshire, Scotland.[307] Married unknown.

Children of Robert Irvine:
*
i.
 
Robert Irvine,[315] born before 1700.[250] {Presumed son. Robert of Artamford is listed by [307] as being the grandfather of John of Moree and later of Drumglass}




1.1. Robert Irvine,[315] born before 1700.[250] Died 1774 & buried 10/2/1774, Moree, Desertcreat parish, Co Tyrone, Ireland.[250] Robert, then of Drum Castle, Aberdeen, Scotland, took a leading part in the last Scottish Jacobite Rebellion, 1745-1746, which sought to place Prince Charles Edward Stuart on the throne.[315] Robert fled to Ireland where he bought an estate at Moree, near Drumglass, and spent the rest of his life.[315] Robert's younger brother, John, took the side of King George and was rewarded for his efforts with the Drum estates, which Robert previously possessed.[315] {I have serious doubts about this story - whilst the source gives a wealth of information on the genealogy of the Irvines of Drum, it does not give any information on Robert's parentage, which would otherwise be expected, especially if he was the eldest son & heir. Additionally, other sources indicate Robert was already living at Moree in the 1720's, well before his supposed exile. It is more likely that Robert, or his ancestors, arrived in Ireland before the 1720's, possibly as part of the Ulster Plantation} Married unknown. {A Robert Irwin married Margaret Young, 1721, in the Diocese of Clogher,[306] which includes Drumglass & Moree. Was this Robert's wife? It would fit with what is known of the DOB's for Robert's children}

A branch of this family ended up at Ballygawley (as Haddens). Carrowbeg is a townland just to the north of Benburb, which is about 16km ESE of Ballygawley. Most of this family emigrated to Victoria, Australia in the 1850's and 1860's, however some branches remained in Carrowbeg and as recently as the 1970's the family could be found there (in 1975 Stanley Irwin, 26yo, was shot at his farm, Carrowbeg, a casualty in the centuries long protestant-catholic feud). Virtually the entire family still in Tyrone signed the 1912 Ulster Covenant, demonstrating their 'orange' sympathies (although I suspect there was considerable pressure on all non-catholics to sign).

 "Strange Suicides in Melbourne.
A Man Drowns Himself. Late on August 10 a man was seen standing on the banks of the Yarra, near the Morgue. After looking at the water for some time he was observed to very deliberately take off his hat, coat and vest and lay them down on the bank. He then walked into the water, wading in until he was immersed to the neck when he made a plunge and disappeared. He soon rose again to the surface, however, and at once made for the bank, which he reached in safety. For a period he sat beside the garments, of which he had divested himself, and appeared to be meditating which he should do. A second time he entered the river, waded out as before, until the water was up to his chin, and again made a plunge beneath the surface. It was some moments before he came to the top again, struggling as if for life, but he could not get near the bank, as he was swept along by the current and eventually he sank. The body did not come to view again, so Mr J. Robinson who had seen the deceased enter the water the second time, reported the case to Constable Tratford, who was on duty at Princes-bridge. A crowd gathered on the bridge, and the man who had seen the deceased venture into the water the first time, told the constable where the coat, vest and hat had been placed. The officer secured possession of these, and in the breast pocket of the coat was found a number of letters, which indicated that the deceased's name was William James Irwin, and subsequent inquiries bore that out. It was ascertained that the deceased was about 45 years of age, and was formerly a resident of Sale, and occupied Fulham Estate. He was a mining speculator, and lost about 10,000 over the Foster and Dargo mines. Early in the present year he married a widow, with considerable means, and immediately afterwards set out for Coolgardie with Dr McDonald, of Sale, for the purpose of acquiring mines. Mrs Irwin financed the expedition, but the funds of the deceased were fritted away at Perth, and he returned to Victoria. There was an estrangement between deceased and his wife, and after his return they did not live together, although the deceased appeared to have made attempts to heal the breach, as the following copy of a letter which he had sent to Mrs Irwin, and which was found in his pocket, will show:- Clayton, 21/6/94. My dear Mary. — After all I love you still. Will you kindly meet me alone at Princes-bridge station to-morrow, 22nd inst., at 1.45 p.m., as I am anxious to see you. Believe me ever your loving Willie. A week later than the date of that letter deceased was taken ill and was successfully treated at the Melbourne Hospital. He attended that institution on Thursday and was very merry, but said he had pains in his ears. Deceased was living with his brother-in-law, Mr J. S. Affleck, at Hazelmere, Centre-road, Clayton.(Taranaki Herald, 1894)"[317]

Some connections are speculative, however note that the available coverage of baptisms for the area is quite good.

An Irwin family of Cranslough township, Carnteel parish, Co Tyrone

Earliest documented appearance of this family is Robert Jr appearing in Cranslough township, Carnteel parish, in the 1851 Griffith's Valuations. According to [306] Robert Jr's oldest known child was married at the Upper Clonaneese Presbyterian Church, however [30] gives the place of registration as Killishall (Killeeshil). Killeeshil is about 2km north of the Upper Clonaneese Presbyterian Church, which is in the townland of Lisferty. The northern border of Cranslough township is about 200 metres south of the Upper Clonaneese Presbyterian Church, so those two locations are consistent. [30] gives marriages for an additional two daughters of a Robert Irwin at Killeeshil between 1855-1865 (Jane & Mary Ann) & I have included them below, however note their inclusion is speculative. Since Robert Sr was in Killeeshill parish in 1796, it would appear that this family, or at least Robert Jr, moved from Killeeshill parish to Cranslough township some time prior to 1851. In the 1850's there were several Irwin families living in the parish of Killeeshil, as well as a sizable group living in Edentiloan, Carnteel parish. By 1911 there were no Irwin's living in Killeeshil, but there were still several families in Edentiloan. The available records at this stage are too fragmentary to assemble families for the Edentiloan & Killeeshil Irwin's, who are likely related to the family below. There was one Irwin listed in the Tithe Applotment Book, 1829 for Killeeshil parish, although the index does not give a forename. Possibly the William Irwin who had children marrying in Killeeshil in the 1840's to the 1860's. Edentilone townland lies on the southern border of Cranslough.


1. Robert Irwin,[360] probably born between 1765-1775. Married unknown. Either the Robert Irwin of Killeeshill parish, Co Tyrone, Ireland, listed in the 1796 Spinning Wheel Bounty Lists (Flax Seed Premiums),[1] or the Robert Irwin of Edentiloan, Co Tyrone, listed in the 1795/96 Freeholders' List.[360]

William & James Irwin were contemporaries and both appear in Clogher parish by the 1860's (William appears a few years earlier than James). William resided in Slatmore townland whilst James resided in Nurchoosy Irish townland. They are grouped together since a s/o James married a daughter of William. This does not preclude William & James from being related or even brothers since marriages of 1st cousins in Co Tyrone was not a rare occurance. William's parents are currently unknown, however he almost certainly had at least one sister, Sarah, who also lived in Slatmore townland, married James Lindsay & had children Sarah Jane, John & Andrew, all born Slatmore, Clogher parish. All three Lindsay children emigrated to the USA & settled in the same localities as the descendents of William who emigrated to the USA.[360,361] James Irwin was almost certainly the s/o Jane Irwin, widow, who resided 1851, Nurchoosy Irish townland, Clogher parish, Co Tyrone, Ireland.[361] James was still a minor at the time.

This family appears in the Castlederg area, in the west of Co Tyrone, near the border with Co Donegal. In 1851 the bulk of the family was living in the townlands of Kilmore Robinson & Kilmore Irvine, Longfield West parish, Co Tyrone. Castlederg is the nearest large town. Ganvaghan townland is about 3km south-west of Castlederg. Freughlough townland is about 2km north of Castlederg. The Kilmore's are about 5km south of Castlederg.

There were other Irwin's living in the same townlands listed in the Griffith's Valuations, actually next door neighbours - Robert, living next door to Mary & her husband (Charles Irwin) & William, living next door to John Irwin. These individuals are obviously connected in some manner and both appear to have been fairly well off, one farming 25 acres, the other farming 58 acres & both sub-leasing to other tennants. The identities of William, Robert & Charles (who married Elizabeth, below) is unknown. It is possible (likely even) that they are descendents of one of the 12 'lost' children of John Irvine of Castlederg.

The 1796 Flax list lists a Robert & Charles Irwine in the parish of Longfield East (no Irwin's listed in Longfield West, which includes Kilmore). Further, a Charles Irwin, born 1789, Kilmore, Co Tyrone, served in 28th Foot Regiment, 2nd Royal Veteran Battalion, 49th Foot Regiment, 1st Garrison Battalion & the 2nd Garrison Battalion from 1807-1826 and was discharged in 1826, aged 37yo.[371] This was almost certainly not the Charles, s/o Christopher, born in the 1780's since that Charles had issue in Tyrone between 1800-1815 since those in military service at the time married either after they were discharged or in the later years when on garrison duty. This Charles would then likely be the s/o either Robert or Charles Sr of Longfield East (as of 1796). The Charles who saw military service was probably the Charles Irwin Sr who appears in Longfield East in the Griffith's Valuations.

Other Irwin's of Australia

James Jr & George arrived in Australia together on the "Adam Lodge", both families displayed the same travel patterns and used the same forenames, George's brother-in-law, John Kerrigan, also settled in the same area as James & George. John Kerrigan, born 1814, emigrated to Australia in 1837 on the Adam Lodge with James & George.[183] Griffith's valuation lists Kerrigan's in Co Tyrone in the parishes of Urney (4), Donaghedy (10), Termonamongan (2), Desertcreat (1), Clogher (1) & Ardstraw (2). No Kerrigan's were listed in Co Tyrone in the 1796 flax list. Irwin's in the same parishes listed in Griffith's were Urney (3), Donaghedy (1), Termonamongan (4), Desertcreat (4), Clogher (3) & Ardstraw (15). No Kerrigan's listed in Errigal Keerogue, which does support the case that James & George are not related (at least closely) to the Irwin's of Errigal Keerogue (Ballygawley). Both George & James Irwin's are listed (only) in the parish of Clogher, as are Samuel, Thomas, John, William, Christopher & Robert, most of which are names used by George & James. John Kerrigan appears in the parishes of Termonamongan & Donaghedy. Two secondary sources indicate James Irwin was born in Co Tyrone, Ireland. No information is available on George Irwin other than "born Ireland", nor for John Kerrigan. It has been claimed that George married Mary Anne McMullen, 1834,[396] however I have found no evidence of either Mary's surname or marriage date - note this is the same date & surname as the marriage of George's brother, James. It is not impossible that George & James married sisters the same year.

Irwine of Bodoney Upper parish & James Irwin of There are 4 James Irwin's listed in the 1796 "Flax Growers Bounty List" for Co Tyrone: James Irwine of Clogher parish, James Irwine of Cappagh parish, James Irwin of Errigal Keerogue parish.[1] Interestingly enough, there are two George Irwin's listed and one of those is in Cappagh parish.[1]

 "A life long resident of Singleton. On Wednesday, 10th instant, at his residence, Bulga, the "long day" closed for one of the eldest and most highly respected residence of the district in the person of Mr John Williams, at the age of 82 years. A native of Camberwell, the late Mr Williams was born of one of those pioneering families of a century ago, from whose advent the real progress of Australia began, and from his parents he inherited those rugged and indomitable qualities which enabled him to overcome and surmount difficulties and obstacles at which the hearts of men of lesser fibre would have quailed, hence is it any wonder that he was to be found at his post almost to the last hour. In his young days he commenced carrying between Morpeth and the towns of the far north, and he remembered and could relate in a most interesting manner many stirring incidents connected with the early days of carrying. The principle mode of conveyance then being the bullock dray. He had a remarkable memory, which was stored with interesting reminiscences, and his facilities were practically unimpaired. Having subsequently chosen a partner in life, the late Mr Williams decided to settle down, and for many years made St. Clair his place of abode. Later on, when he undertook dairying pursuits , he was still a young man and had had his one desire to go on the land fulfilled. The settler in those days had rather a hard row to hoe, but reinforced by grit and determination and assistance by the influence of a devoted partner, the late Mr Williams became one of the pioneers of the Singleton district. The indomitable courage that played so in valuable a part in standing by the early colonists was strikingly evidenced in the case of the deceased and his wife, whose experiences were varied, and hardships and successes commingled with each other over successive years until a well deserved competence eventually came their way. There they saw a family of five sons and five daughters grow into manhood and womanhood. About 12 years ago the Williams family left St Clair and went to Bulga, where they took up land and continued dairying pursuits. Straightforward and honourable in all his dealings, the late Mr Williams was an excellent type of citizen and one who was universally respected and admired. The part he played in the development of the district he played well and nobly, and in his success his partner in life (who predeceased him five years ago) shared, accepting her responsibilities in keeping with the best traditions of the pioneers of the country. Of both it may be truthfully said, they lived their years to the full. The late Mr Williams is survived by a family of four sons and five daughters namely: Messrs Robert (Queensland), Tom and Harry (Bulga), John (Minimbalo), Mesdames F Clark (Camden Haven River), A  Moore (Broke),  G Smith (Carrow Brook), and Misses Elizabeth and Susie (Bulga). There are also many grandchildren and a number of great grandchildren. The funeral took place on Thursday last, and was largely attended, the remains being interred in the Presbyterian Cemetery at Glenridding. The Rev W Spence was the officiating clergyman, and all the members of the family were present at the graveside. Several wreaths were received. Four grandsons of the deceased acted as pallbearers -  Messrs Clarence Williams and James, Edward and Norman Moore."(Singleton Argus, 18/9/1924).[14]

 "Mr. Alexander Irwin, Camberwell: It is with deep regret that I have to chronicle the death of Mr. Alexander Irwin, of Middle Falbrook. It appears deceased was in his usual good health on Saturday, and after returning from watering his cows in the afternoon, he took a copious draught of cold water to quench his thirst, which brought on a severe attack of cramps, followed by inflammation, to which he succumbed on Monday afternoon between 3 and 4 o'clock. Mr. Irwin was one of those persons whose countenance reflected an innate, kind and cheerful disposition. He was held in the highest esteem by all who knew him. Like many other toilers of the soil, Mr. Irwin had to meet reverses from the vicissitudes of nature, but that cheerful spirit stamped on his manly brow enabled him to look on the bright side of disappointments, and through the rents of blighted hopes he would always see a silver lining. He was an affectionate husband, and one of the kindest of fathers. His old associates will miss his cheery face and elegant manners. Deceased was 64.5 years of age, and had been a resident of long standing of Glennie's Creek. He leaves a widow, three brothers, and one sister, and a number of other relatives, to mourn their sad loss. The funeral which was a large one, took place on Tuesday afternoon, and the remains of an honourable, good man were laid to rest in Singleton Roman Catholic Cemetery, R. I. P."(Maitland Mercury, 8/2/1905).[14]

 "A very old and highly respected resident of the district in the person of Mrs. Mary Ann Irwin, aged 83, passed away suddenly at midday on Saturday at her residence, Doyle Street, Redbournberry. Deceased was the relict of the late Mr. Alexander Irwin, who died 16 years ago. She was about as usual on Saturday morning, and just before 11 o'clock told her daughter she would have a sleep before dinner, this being a daily custom. Upon going to awaken her mother shortly after 12 o'clock, the daughter discovered that she was dead. Deceased was born at Glennie's Creek, and lived there until she came to reside in Singleton about 18 years ago. She leaves three daughters, Viz. Mrs. Fred Spinks, of Redbournberry, Sister Magdalen, Convent of Mercy, of Morpeth and Miss Irwin, who lived with her mother. The funeral took place on Sunday afternoon, the remains being interred in the old portion of the Catholic Cemetery."(Maitland Mercury, 26/9/1923).[14]

According to [10] & [14] George, born c.1835, was the s/o George & Mary Ann who emigrated to Australia in 1837 on the Adam Lodge. [235] demonstrates otherwise since the family who arrived on the Adam Lodge were Presbyterian's whilst George born c.1835 and his family were Roman Catholic. Additionally, transcripts of the passenger list for the Adam Lodge indicate George & Mary Ann arrived with a daughter, not a son. [10] & [14] presumably electing to accept this was an error in the transcription. Tracing an unknown daughter, especially to parents with names as common as George & Mary, is next to impossible unless the child dies unmarried or details can be gleaned from the parent's death certificates. Finally, [235] has been able to indentify George's birth in England. At this stage neither I nor researchers of this family have been able to trace George's arrival in Australia. He does not appear in the assisted passenger lists for either Queensland, NSW or Victoria between 1850-1860. George was living with his parents in England in 1851 but by 1860 was living in Australia. All attempts to find the marriage of George & Mary in Australia have failed to date, including a search by the NSW BMD Registry Office. Information from death certificates and the birth certificates of their children indicate they were married between 1858-1860 in Sydney. Possibly a common-law marriage (ie: never registered). Whether Mary was previously married or not is unknown - Redmond was her maiden name. Mary would have been almost 30yo when she married George, very unsual for a first marriage in Australia at the time, especially since she had already been living in Australia several years before she 'married' George. This strongly suggests she was previously married and widowed before 'marrying' George.

1. Alexander Irwin,[15,246,253] born 18/9/1798, Co Sligo, Ireland.[247] Died 9/8/1883, Artemesia township, Ontario, Canada.[253] Alexander aquired 'Fannybrook Farm' in the mid 1830s from Brevet Major William Irwin (related but relationship unknown).[247] (William Irwin born 1784 Moorfield, Co Sligo, Ireland, died 12/11/1840, Parramatta, NSW, Australia. Officer in 28th Gloucester Regiment. Assistant Engineer & Superintend. of Convict Stockade. Came to Australia in 1835 with regiment. Awarded Peninsular and Waterloo Medals for services in Napoleonic Wars. Possibly Alexander's uncle.[247])
 "Alexander Irwin, one of the pioneers of Artemesia, was born in Sligo, Ireland, in 1798, being the only son of Christopher and Eliza Irwin, of that place. His father died when he was very young, but he remained in the land of his nativity till 1850, in which year he emigrated to America, and during the same autumn settled at his present home, when the forests, for miles on all sides, were scarce yet desecrated by the woodman's axe. Encountering the difficulties usual to the pioneers, and overcoming them by patience, perseverance, and industry, is a part of the history of Mr. Irwin's "life in the backwoods". But time and circumstance, which changes all things, now sees him comfortably situated in a country teeming not only with the necessaries of life but the luxuries of an advanced age of enlightenment - a result which his own hand has been instrumental in conquering from a region clad in nature's primeval garb. Mr. Irwin has held a variety of elective and appointive offices while a resident of Artemesia, including that of Deputy Reeve (the first ever elected in the township), and a Justice of the Peace for twenty-five years. He married in 1820 Frances, daughter of Lieut. Burrass. They have a family of ten children surviving, and Mr. Irwin resides with his youngest son Henry, who is a Magistrate, and one of the leading and most prosperous farmers in the township."[247] 
Married Frances Ann Burrowes,[246,253] 31/10/1820, Co Sligo, Ireland.[246,247,253] Frances the d/o Lt Johnston Burrowes.[246] Lt Burrowes/Burrass was of the 47th Regiment of the British army & served through Wellington's campaigns in the Peninsula and at Waterloo, and subsequently died in India.[247] Emigrated to Canada, 1850, with all but oldest child.[246] The family farm, "Fannybrook", was taken over by neighbour William McLoughry after Alexander emigrated.[246] Frances, d/o Johston Burrowes & marie Devereux, born 1803, Co Sligo, Ireland, and died 1876, Artemesia township, Ontario, Canada.[253]

John was probably a retired soldier (army or navy). He was in the Maitland district for several years in the 1850's before moving to Sydney around 1860. No known connection with any of the other Irwin's of the Maitland district - he was simply one of the several Irwin's in the Maitland area who was originally from Co Tyrone, Ireland. John's ancestry is charted in the Co Tyrone, Ireland section of this webpage.

John appears to be a rather 'colourful' character, in a rather negative sense. For better or worse I have been unable to place John and his death entry in the DMD index does not list parents. If the age at death is incorrect (or I have misidentified his death), he may be the son of William Irwin & Catherine Hanna (born c.1835). The connection with Whittingham suggests a possible link with James & George Irwin who settled there around 1840. Both James & George had sons named John who are otherwise accounted for. He kidnapped his bride at the tender age (hers) of 16yo and within a few years had resurfaced 180km away in the New England district. According to a coronial inquest into the death of one of his children, John frequently abused his wife and children, with beatings, malnourishment &, on more than a few occasions, forcing them to spend the nights outside in the bush. John's wife frequently sought refuge with her neighbours. The witnesses at the marriage of one of John's daughters had the same names as witnesses at the birth of one of the children of George of Whittingham, although this is likely a coincidence since 30 years separate the two events.


1. John Irwin,[242] born 1823.[15] Died 1911, Emmaville, NSW (88yo).[15]
 "Abduction. John Irwin was this day committed to take his trial, at the next Maitland Circuit Court, for taking Margaret M'Gowan from her home without the consent of her parents, she being under sixteen years of age. It appeared from the evidence that the prisoner was at Mr. M'Gowan's house, about four miles from Muswell Brook, on Wednesday, the 23rd of January last, and that Mr. M'Gowan had occasion to go from home that day, leaving his daughter at home with her mother; prisoner had gone to fetch his horse from a paddock to start off also, but it appeared that he did not do so until dusk in the evening, when, as soon as he had an opportunity, while the girl's mother was at her dairy, some distance from the house, he induced the girl to leave her home, and he put her on his horse, and rode off with her. The father returned home a few hours afterwards, and on hearing of Irwin's conduct, he rode off immediately in search of them, but could not see or hear anything of Irwin or his daughter. The next day Mr. M'Gowan returned home, and went to Muswell Brook, and reported the abduction to chief constable Fox ; a warrant was obtained, and information sent by the chief constable to different parts of the colony. However, on Sunday last, Mr. Fox ascertained that Irwin had been seen returning from up the country searching for his horse that had strayed away from him some miles off, as he was proceeding with the girl towards Gammon Plains, and, in consequence of which, Irwin was (very fortunately) prevented from conveying the unfortunate girl any further. Mr. Fox, without delay, went off in search, and called at a station on the Skellater Estate, where he found that Irwin and the girl had just arrived; he immediately apprehended him, and Irwin said that he came back there to look for his horse that he had lost, and expressed a wish to be permitted to take the girl to her home where he had taken her from four days previous; as the girl's parents did not live in the direction of Muswell Brook from that place, but some miles off in a different direction, Irwin's request was of course refused. Mr. Fox brought him to the lockup, and gave the girl to the care of constable Fitz Roy's wife, who next day returned her to her disconsolate parents. 1st February, 1850."(Hunter River District Times, 6/2/1850).[251] The case was still in court a month later:
"John Irwin was indicted for unlawfully taking Margaret M'Gowan, a girl under the age of sixteen years, from under the protection and against the will of her father John M'Gowan, at Archerfield, on the 23rd January, 1850. Mr. Purefoy appeared for the defence; attorney, Mr. Davies. It appeared from the evidence of John M'Gowan, Margaret M'Gowan, and Charles Fox, that M'Gowan and prisoner were both in the employ of Mr. G. Bowman, but did not reside near each other, prisoner living at Archerfield, and M'Gowan at the Pig-holes, three or four miles from Muswell Brook; prisoner used to bring rations to M'Gowan's once a month, and be there occasionally at other times; about twelve months since prisoner spoke to M'Gowan about marrying his daughter Margaret, who was then between fourteen and fifteen years old, but M'Gowan said he thought she was too young, and that prisoner might get a wife that would suit him better; some time after this, however, M'Gowan found, that an improper intimacy had sprung up between prisoner and his daughter, and that she was pregnant; M'Gowan then urged prisoner to marry her, but prisoner put it off from time to time; M'Gowan still pressed him to marry her, and at length prisoner consented to M'Gowan's speaking to the Rev. Mr. White about marrying them, and a day (the 23rd. January) was appointed for their wedding; when it came, however, prisoner objected to the expense of a marriage by license, although M'Gowan offered to pay half; M'Gowan with prisoner's consent, then set off to see Mr. White to arrange for their being called in church, and whilst he was away Irwin asked the girl to go away with him, and she consented, riding on Irwin's horse, and he walking by her side; she had before this time borne a child, and took it with her; Irwin took her to public-houses, but on the fifth evening he brought her to a house at Skellatar, near Muswell Brook, and sent word to her father, telling her that he did so that her father might not be uneasy. Chief constable Fox heard of their being there, and a warrant having been issued be apprehended prisioner, who was at the moment standing with the girl. In the lockup, subsequently, prisoner told McGowan that he would marry the girl, but M'Gowan said he should not marry her now, but if he would pay something towards the support of the child, he (M'Gowan) did not wish to press the case if the magistrates were satisfied; the prisoner swore that he'd never pay a penny towards the child. Mr Purefoy addressed the jury for the defence, endeavouring to impeach the credibility of M'Gowan, and to show that the more probable state of the case was that M'Gowan had consented to his daughter's living with prisoner, but had quarrelled with him on money matters and therefore brought this charge against him. He contended also that, as a question of law, the temporary taking away described in the evidence was not such a taking as the net contemplated as an offence. He called William Seabrook, who deposed that he had heard from M'Gowan an account of what passed between himself and prisoner in the lockup. On objection from the Attorney General that M'Gowan had not been asked whether he had had such conversation with Seabrook, an argument arose, which terminited in his Houor's allowing M'Gowan to be recalled. M'Gowan deposed that he had no further conversation with Seabrook than about prisoner's marrying his daughter, prisoner having sent Seabrook to him, witness did not tell Seabrook that he had told prisoner he would say no more about the matter if he would give him 20, nor mentioned any other sum of money. Seabrook deposed that he saw M'Gowan at his hut, and that M'Gowan refused to allow his daughter to marry prisoner, saying that if prisoner had given him the 20 he asked prisoner for in the lockup he might now have been a free man, and no more about it. The Attorney General cross examined the witness, who stated that the conversation with Mc'Gowan as to the 20 took place in the open air, some distance from the hut, no other person being present. The Attorney General replied. His Honour summed up. The jury retired for a few minutes, and returned with a verdict of guilty. The prisoner was sentenced to two years' imprisionment in Maitland gaol, and to pay a fine of 50, and to be further imprisoned until such fine be paid. The court then adjourned till ten o'clock on Tuesday morning.(Hunter River District Times, 6/3/1850).[261]

 "An inquiry was held at the Court House, on Friday last, before W. A. Huntley and C. Ross, Esqs., JP, touching the death of a child. Benjamin Gleeson deposed : I am a farmer, and live at Inverell; I know John Irwin and his wife; they are neighbors of mine, a child of theirs was burnt on Monday last; I saw the child when it was dead; I attended the funeral yesterday; Irwin is always hunting his wife and children, and they frequently have rows; I don't believe the parents were in the house when the accident occurred; I heard screams from the children, and saw the parents running from the paddock towards the house; Mrs. Irwin has frequently complained to me of being turned out of the house; I do not know if Irwin turned her out on this occasion; I am told that he did, but cannot swear to it. John William Turner stated : I have not been upon Irwin's farm for twelve months; I have frequently known the children to be neglected; on the day of the accident Mrs. Irwin was in the paddock; I do not know if her husband prevented her from going into the house. A. Moore stated : I am a farmer; Mrs. Irwin has frequently come to me for protection, and complained of being beaten and turned out of her house; I have frequently known her and the children to sleep out in the bush all night. Dr. Huntley deposed : I am a duly legally qualified medical practitioner; I saw the child of Irwin's on Monday last; it was suffering from burns; it was much burnt about the back; it has since died; I believe death to have resulted from the burning; the child was about two years of age."(Armidale Express, 7/3/1870).[252]

William may be connected with the James & George Irwin (born about 1810), sons of James Sr & Elizabeth, who appear in the Maitland area around 1840 (they arrived in Australia in 1837 on the Adam Lodge). William Irwin was a co-executor of the will of John Kerrigan, brother-in-law of George Irwin. William was the s/o John & Sarah, so was not a brother of George & James, but he may have been a cousin. All three came from Co Tyrone, Ireland. Alternatively the Kerrigan connection may be purely coincidental. As a shop owner and person of some position in the local area, William would have been an ideal candidate to become the executor of someone's will, whether a relative or not. Not only being a person of some position, being a stores owner means that he would be known to most if not all of the local residents.

I hereby appoint John M Saunders Esq and Rev. William Purves Executors of this my last Will and Testament. Made this twenty seventh day of September 1865. Witnesses Wm A Purves & Harriet Tandy."[259] 
Farm labourer, 1841.[259] Presbyterian & literate.[259] In 1843 was listed as a creditor (for 81 9s 6d) in the estate of George Hobler of Maitland.[260] In 1846 William donated 5s (shillings) to the Irish Relief Fund.[260] On 3/4/1847 William gave evidence, in court, leading to the conviction of Mary Cranfield of Durham Street, West Maitland, for being the "mistress of a disorderly house" (ie: brothel).[260] Mary was found guilty and ordered to leave the neighbourhood.[260] At the quarterly meeting for the period ending 30/9/1848 of the Maitland Hospital General Committee, held at the Northumberland Hotel, William was a member of the committee and was elected again for the following quarter.[352] During the quarter he had also sold glazing etc to the hospital, being paid 4s 6d.[352] In the late 1840's had the contract to convert the 'old' mounted police station at Dungog into the 'new' Court House, which was officially opened 6/10/1849:
 "New Court-house, Dungog. The building which was originally erected in this township for the mounted police, has recently been converted into a very tasteful and complete court-house, under the diretion of M. W. Lewis, Esq., Clerk of Works, the contractor being Mr. W. Irwin of Maitland. The building now occupies a space of 40 feet by 20 feet, and is provided with a verandah to the north, and a covered way or passage to the west. The court-room measures 28 feet by 16, and is well lit by six windows, three on each side; at the upper end is a railed platform for the bench, and behind it is provided a private entrance for the magistrates, the principal entrance being from the passage on the west. The house also contains three rooms on the upper floor, to be used as rooms for the clerk of the bench, and as a magistrates' private room. Oct. 6, 1849."[352] 
On 29/10/1850, William, then of West Maitland, placed an advertisement in the "Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser", seeking 12,000-16,000 feet of hardwood."[252] {Presumably for another large building contract, similar to his renovation of the Dungog Court House the previous year} In 1851 was on the West Maitland Presbyterian School Board, at a salary of 45.[260] He was still on the board in 1852 when an advertisement was made for a teacher, William being the listed contact.[260] In 1851 was a witness in a case between the landlord & leasee of the Rose Inn, West Maitland.[260] William was contracted in 1854 by the owners to perform repairs on the building, but was prevented from doing so by the leasee.[260] In 1851 published a letter in Maitland's newspaper challenging a debt he said was paid.[260] In 1853 William posted an advertisement for a lost horse: "Five Pounds Reward. Stolen or strayed, from Mr Cox's Paddock, Black Creek, about the 1st July, 1853, One black mare, branded IL/MF on near shoulder, switch tail, one hind foot white, with black horse foal, unbranded, one hind foot white. If strayed, One Pound Will be paid on delivery of said Mare and Foal to William Irwin, West Maitland, or to Mr T. B. Cox, Black Creek, and if stolen, five Pounds will be paid on conviction of the thief, and restoration of the said Mare and Foal. William Irwin, West Maitland."[260] Later in 1853 he posted another advertisement for another missing horse: "Stolen or strayed, one bay horse, branded like C4 on the near shoulder, and C on the neck collar and saddle marks, about 15 hands high, short switch tail. One brown mare, branded WD/W near shoulder, long tail, smail star. Taken from Long Creek. Any person delivering the same on Long Creek, at William Irwin's Store; or to William Luck, Mudgee; will receive the sum of Five Pounds; on the conviction ot the thief, the sum of Ten Pounds. William Irwin."[260] In 1853 & 1854 was a co-Executor, with Henry Gooch, of the estate of John Kerrigan.[260] In 1854 William posted an advertisement for a lost horse: "Stolen or Strayed, from Morpeth, on Tuesday last, one bay horse, branded P on the near shoulder, small star in forehead, dark points, switch tail, rising five years old, about 14 1/2 hands high, broken in to saddle and harness. If Stolen, the above reward will be paid on conviction of the thief and the restoration of the said horse; and if Strayed, One Pound will be paid on delivery of the said horse to Mr. William Irwin, West Maitland. Ten Pounds Reward."[260] In 1854 operated the West Maitland 'Oil & Colour Store', selling, among other things, "raw and boiled linseed oil, black, sperm, and other oils at reduced prices, also, a large assortment of wall paper, and window glass, of all sizes, etc."[260] In 1855 was the listed contact for the advertised rental of a brick cottage on Presbyterian Church Glebe lands, West Maitland, previously tennanted by Dr White.[260] In 1855: "James Marshall, the prisoner who was found guilty on the previous charge, was indicted for stealing one horse, the property of William Irwin, and one horse, the property of Joshua Anderson, at West Maitland, on Gilt December, 1854. The prisoner was undefended. The witnesses called were William Irwin, James Rose, and Michael Hayes. Mr. William Irwin lost a bay horse from a small paddock near the Long Bridge, West Maitland, on 6th December last; it was a light horse, switch tail, with small star in forehead; witness never saw the horse afterwards. James Rose, of Webb's Creek, near the Hawksbury, about 90 miles from Maitland, in the enrly part of December, saw a man at M'Donald's Flat, on the Wollombi, whom witness believed was the prisoner, riding a small bay horse, and leading a big horse; he'd seen the horses before, and believed the light bay horse to be the property of Mr. Irwin, and had seen the big horse in a paddock at Campbell's Hill; recognised the prisoner immediately, when he afterwards saw him in custody. Michael Haves, about three or four weeks before 5th January, about four o'clock in the morning, saw a person near Wollombi, on the road between Maitland and Wollombi, riding a small bay horse, and leading a big one; they were in a dry sweat; prisoner was the man, witness believed, who rode the small horse; witness did not know the horses. The jury retired for a few minutes, and returned a verdict of guilty of stealing the small bay horse. The prisoner was sentenced to three years hard labour on the public roads, this sentence to commence at the expiry of the previous sentence. The court then adjourned till Monday morning, at ten o'clock."[260] Married Catherine Hanna.[259] Catherine, d/o Robert & Elizabeth,[15,259] born 1809/1812, Fintona, Co Tyrone, Ireland,[259] died 29/8/1858, Maitland, NSW, Australia,[15,259] & buried Hiland Crescent Cemetery, East Maitland, NSW (49yo).[207] Catherine was illiterate, 1841.[259] William & Catherine emigrated to Australia, 30/8/1841, with 5 children, on the "Pearl".[259]

Archibald Irwin, born c.1833,[207,259] Clogher, Co Tyrone, Ireland.[259] Died 19/3/1861, Maitland, NSW, Australia,[15,207,259] & buried Hiland Crescent Cemetery, East Maitland, NSW (27yo).[207] Literate, 1841.[259] Emigrated to Australia with parents, 1841.[259] No record of a marriage.[15] Reported 12/9/1855, "Charge of Assault: Archibald Irwin was on Monday charged before the bench, at West Maitland, with having violently assaulted Frederick William Matthews, at West Maitland, on the 31st August. Mr. Mullen appeared for defendant. The witnesses for the prosecution were the complainant, Edwin Foans, Joseph Winchester, and Dr Michael M'Cartney. The complainant on the evening of the 31st August, went with Foans about 130 yards from his own house, in Elgin street, and asked an oysterman to sell him some oysters, when the defendant said that he had bought them all. Some conversation then ensued about fighting, between the parties present, and Irwin struck complainant with his fist in the eye, which knocked him down, and when down he was kicked in the jaw, either by defendant or one of the party. The jaw was broken. Defendant was the nearest person to him when he was kicked. Some one then asked if he had got enough, and he then got another stroke on the back of the ear. Foans was knocked down too, and he was at a little distance from him during the whole affray Cross-examined: Witness did not challenge the defendant or any of his party to fight for 20, and he never touched the defendant during the whole time - Edwin Foans saw the scuffle, and was knocked down. It was very dark, and he did not see who knocked him or complainant down. There were some words about fighting between Matthews and defendant, and Matthews said he would fight him in the morning - Joseph Winchester did not see the scuffle, but heard the parties talking about fighting. Dr M'Cartney saw the complainant on the same evening, both his eyes were blackened, and his under jaw-bone broken, having been fractured close to the chin on the right side. Witness was under the impression that the injury on the chin was done by the hand, and not by a kick, owing to the absence of an external wound Irwin the next morning said to witness that he had a quarrel with complainant, and that he had been provoked to fight. For the defendant Geoige Elliott and Daniel Henry were called as witnesses, who stated that on the night in question they were in company with Irwin at an oyster cart, when the complainant and Foans came up, and wanted some oysters. Irwin said he had bought them all, and complainant said he would have some or fight him. Complainant then challenged them to fight for 20, and when Irwin said they would see about that in the morning, complainant struck Irwin and knocked his hat off, and when picking it up he struck at him again Irwin then turned on complainant, laid hold of him, and a scuffle ensued. They did not see Irwin kick complainant Foans went to assist Matthews, when Henry caught hold of Foans, who struck Henry, There was only one round, and Matthews said he had enough Both parties were in liquor at the time. The bench dismissed the case."[261]

 "Cutting and Maiming. Thomas Lethbridge, a boy about fourteen years of age, was yesterday charged before the bench with having on Thursday, 4th January, stabbed with a knife, in the arm, Patrick Henry, a lad about seventeen years of age, at West Maitland. This case had been four times before the bench, inconsequence of the medical men being unable to pronounce the complainant out of danger. Mr. Briggs appeared for the defendant. The witnesses called were the complainant, William Irwin, Dr. Douglas, and Dr. Scott. On Tuesday, 2nd January, complainant with some other boys were playing at the back of Henry's house, and had been larking with defendant, as he was a new chum, and threw a dirty horse cloth over bim; defendant then threw an old boot at William Irwin, and took a knife out of his pocket; he was afterwards struck by Irwin, and on defendant complaining to Irwin's father Irwin was reprimanded for his conduct to Lethbridge. On Thursday, the 4th instant, about nine o'clock, defendant came on the ground of complainant's father and asked if Sam Moss was there, and was ordered off, as he had drawn a knife on the Tuesday night; he went down to the town and returned with Moss, and was again ordered away by Irwin. He went across the road and appeared to be seeking for stones, when complainant rushed at him, and shammed as if he were striking him about the head; he took a knife out of his pocket and opened it; he then ran away, complainant following him, defendant fell and Henry tumbled over him, and on rising up came to Irwin, and shewed the shirt sleeve of his left arm filled with blood. Complainant then went home. The wound was temporarily bandaged up by Thomas Masters. None of the witnesses could positively swear that defendant had a knife in his hand, but they thought so from the glitter of what he had in his hand in the moonbeams Drs. Douglas and Scott proved the nature of the wound, which was a very severe one, and there had been great hemorrhage, but they could not state whether the wound was inflicted with a knife or a piece of glass. For the defendant it was contended that the wound was inflicted by a piece of broken bottle, which he had picked up on the road, and that the injury was entirely accidental. The bench dismissed the case." (The Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser, 18/1/1855).[260]

Henry & Mary were convicts who arrived in Australia in the 1830's and assigned to the Maitland area. They probably married just after Henry's completed his sentence. The date of the marriage is given as 1837 in the BMD index and Henry's certificate of freedom was dated 3/3/1838, however he was 'free' when he married.[263] Henry & Mary appear to have continued their larcenous carreers after gaining their freedom, serving at least one gaol sentence for theft. The family remained in the Maitland area until Henry's death in 1869. After Henry's death, Mary & her children vanish. There is no evidence that Mary remarried in NSW, nor any trace of her or her children in any of the Australian colonies after Henry's death. Where Mary & the children went to is a mystery.

 On 10/4/1849 Henry & Mary appeared before Dr. Glennie, JP (chairman), E. D. Day & A. Lane, JP's in the Maitland Quarter Sessions for: "Stealing & receiving. Mary Irwin was indicted for stealing a watch, the property of Anne Clarke, at Maitland, on the 8th March, 1849; and Henry Irwin was indicted for receiving the same. Mr. Purefoy appeared for the defence; attorney, Mr. Davies. It appeared from the evidence of Anne Clarke, Marian Brackenreg, Frederick Curry, and George Wood, that on that day a woman spoke to Mrs. Clarke through the window of her house in West Maitland, and that the conversation related to a melon; Mrs. Clarke then went out for a few minutes, leaving the back-door open; when she returned she found that her watch had been taken from the table in the back-room, where she had left it, but that nothing else was disturbed. Mrs. Brackenreg had seen a low-sized woman walking quickly to Mrs. Clarke's back-door, with a melon under her arm, but did not observe whether she went in. About an hour or more afterwards chief constable Wood, from information given to him by a man who was in company with Mr. Brackenreg, apprehended both prisoners in East Maitland; he first apprehended the woman on whom he found nothing, but on searching the male prisoner, who made a very violent resistance, he found the watch produced in his trousers pocket; both prisoners were taken to the lockup, and on the wy the female prisoner voluntarily said it was quite, sufficient to have one in without having both, that she took the watch, and that they might let her husband go. Mrs. Clarke identified the watch as hers, and Mr. Curry identified it as a watch he had shortly before repaired for Mrs. Clarke. Mr. Purefoy addressed the jury for the defence, contending that there was no evidence to bring the stealing of the watch home to the female prisoner, even if they were satisfied that the watch had been sufficiently identified hy Mrs. Clarke; and unless they believed the female prisoner guilty, they must acquit the male prisoner. The jury retired for five hours, and then returned with a verdict of guilty against both prisoners. They were remanded for sentence."[261] 
The following year Henry again appeared in this court, in this case accusing his landlord, Peter Crow, of assaulting his (Henry's) daughter after she molested Crow's horse:
 On 26/3/1850, appearing in the Maitland District Court was a charge of assault made by Henry Irwin: "Henry Irwin v. Peter Crow. Irwin deposed that he lived on ground he rented from Crow; and that on the 22nd instant his wife sent their daughter, Margaret Irwin, to Crow's house with some message; from a message previously sent by Mrs. Crow through the girl witness was induced to conceal himself, and observe what passed; he saw his daughter leave Crow's and come homewards; as she passed a tethered horse the horse ran at her, and she drove it off by throwing a clod or something at it; Crow ran down from his house and asked her what she did that for; the girl made some reply, and Crow then struck her several blows about the head, swung her round by the shoulder, and threw her on the ground. The bench, after questioning the girl, who was stated to be eleven years old, declined to examine her as a witness. Mr. Turner, who appeared for the defence, cross examined Irwin to endeavour to prove that Crow had previously given him notice not to trespass on his ground, and that instead of assaulting the girl Crow merely put her off his ground; but Irwin denied having received any such notice until after the assault, and said that his daughter still showed the marks of the injuries. Crow, in defence, stated at some length that he had repeatedly told Irwin and his family not to trespass on his cultivated ground, but to come round by the road; that he saw the girl throwing at the horse, and her dog barking at it, and he ordered her off the ground, but she refused to go, on which he took hold of her to put her off; she threw herself down, and he then pulled her along to the road, and left her, but he denied positively having struck her. The bench convicted Crow, and fined him one shilling and costs, but cautioned Irwin not to allow his children to trespass on Crow's land in future."[261] 
In 1851 Henry appeared in court for killing a neighbour's dog.
 "Charges of Malicious Injury. Yesterday two charges of malicious injury, by killing dogs, were brought before the bench. The first was Burn v. Henry Irwin and Mary Irwin, the charge being that the defendants beat a dog of Burn's to death. Mr. G. Nicholl appeared for the prosecution. The killing of the dog on the chain by the two defendants, by beating him with hoes, was proved, and in defence evidence was called to prove that the dog that same morning, when loose, bit severely the child of the defendants, had previously bitten two other children, and was a savage dog, generally loose, and a nuisance to the neighbourhood ; it was proved also that a road to another house ran by the back of the house Burn lived in, and that Irwin's child, when attacked by the dog, had gone to the house on a message to Mrs. M'Carthy. The bench dismissed the case, thinking the killing the dog was justifiable on the part of the parents, and blaming Burn for keeping such a dog loose." (Maitland Mercury, 23/7/1851).[261] 
In 1855 three of Henry's children, Margaret, Louisa & Henry Jr, were involved in an altercation with another neighbour, resulting in another court appearance:
 "John M'Dougall and Lovel M'Dougall were indicted for rescuing twenty head of cattle from Margaret Irwin, at the Falls, near West Maitland, on 10th July. Mr. Purefoy appeared for the defence; attorney Mr. Mullen. The witnesses called were Henry Irwin, Margaret Irwin, and Louisa Irwin. Henry Irwin lived at Dunmore and the defendants have land adjoining; witness told his daughter to take Mr. M'Dougall's cattle to the pound, as they were trespassing on his land. Margaret Irwin saw M'Dougall's cattle trespassing on the wheat land of her father, on 10th July; witness told her father, who ordered her to take them to the pound; witness and her sister and brother [Henry Jr] drove the cattle as far as the Falls, when they were met by the two defendants; Lovel M'Dougall was in a dray, and his father on horseback; Lovel M'Dougall said he would not allow her to take his cattle to the pound; he struck her with the whip. Both father and son struck her. Lovel M'Dougall struck her sister with his whip over the legs, and her brother over the neck. The cattle were taken from them. Louisa Irwin confirmed the evidence of her sister. For the defence James Sivyer and Timothy Kelly were called. James Sivyer saw the two M'Dougalls on 10th July; they were at witness's place after sundown; Lovel left about half an hour befere his father. Timothy Kelly saw the defendants at the Falls, and saw no rescue of the cattle. The jury, without retiring from the box, returned a verdict of guilty against both defendants. John M'Dougall was sentenced to pay a fine of 10, or be imprisoned till paid; and Lovel M'Dougall to pay a fine of 5, or be imprisoned till paid. The fines were paid." (Maitland Mercury, 25/7/1855).[261] 
The case of the strayed cattle was still being heard in court a month later when a court returned a verdict against Henry:
 "Excessive Damages. Henry Irwin was charged on Monday with having illegally impounded 38 head of cattle, belonging to John M'Dougall, at Dunmore, and charged him with damages at 5s. per head. Plaintiff stated that the fence round the wheat from which the cattle were said to have been impounded was insecure. Cross-examined : Defendant's wife had offered him some posts to mend the fence. Defendant had not said anything to him on the subject. Thomas Smith and Stephen Carter gave evidence to show that the fence was insecure. The fence which Smith had examined enclosed some wheat which he bad been told by Mr. Laug was Irwin's. The damages were reduced to 3d. per head." (Maitland Mercury, 29/8/1855).[261] 
At the same time Henry was involved in a another court case with the McDougall's:
 "Breach of Towns' Police Act. John M'Dougall was yesterday charged before the bench with a breach of this Act, having allowed a dead heifer to lie in a public place on the banks of the Hunter, near to the Falls, West Maitland. The witnesses called were Josiah Trowbridge, R. B. Minter, Joseph Risby, and John Ledsam. From the evidence it appeared that about the 21st May Mr. Irwin drove a herd of cattle across the Falls, that the calf had gone into the water, and Mr. M'Dougall having claimed it, it was put on dry land, but Mr. M'Dougall would not take it, and it had afterwards gone into the water and was drowned. The animal had been lying on the banks of the river for nearly three weeks. At the last sittings of the Small Debts Court, on 6th June, Mr. M'Dougall sued Mr. Irwin for the price of the animal, and was awarded 20s. Upon which Josiah Trowbridge summoned the defendant for allowing the carcase to lie rotting on the banks of the river. The bench allowed the information to be withdrawn, on condition that Mr. M'Dougall should burn the body immediately (reported 16/6/1855)."[353]

Samuel was a 'cousin' of John Edward Irwin who resided for several years in Maitland, before moving to Sydney, where he spent the rest of his life. Both John & Samuel were retired military officers. Samuel sadly appears to have had only one grandchild who survived to adulthood & have had issue, Isabella Lowe. His two sons died without marrying. Samuel's ancestry is charted in the Co Tyrone, Ireland section of this webpage.

John & Phoebe arrived in Australia on the same ship as brothers James & George, who settled first at Whittingham and thence Patricks Plains, and my own ancestor, John, who settled at Maitland and thence to Dungog. What relationship John has to my John &/or James & George is unknown. Note the slender connection with James & George, viz after John died his widow appears to have marriedin 1844 at the Whittingham Presbyterian church, a church that appears at the same time in the stories of James & George. Phoebe & her 2nd husband eventually move to settle near Tamworth. Strangely, Phoebe's two children to her first husband, John, both under 10yo at the time, stayed in Sydney, spending their entire lives in Parramatta. They were presumably either raised by an unknown relative, adopted or put into some sort of foster care. Phoebe's age at death is obviously somewhat understated. The list of her children to her 2nd marriage may include duplicates, I could not find any trace of the death of the older Elizabeth and there may have in fact only been two children, Elizabeth & Mary, the later dying in infancy.

James Irwin Jr appears to have settled at Wollombi, in the Maitland district, after his arrival in Australia, as a farmer. He does not appear to have remained there long - by 1856 he had moved to Sydney & does not appear to have returned to the Maitland district, although at least one child was born in Pleasant Creek, Victoria. In the 1850's Pleasant Creek & Stawell were used interchangably and the area was the site of a gold rush, it seems likle that James was there prospecting, especially given his later occupation as a quarryman. At the time of the gold rush, gold was first discovered on the banks of Pleasant Creek, Stawell was the name of the nearby town that sprung up.

Mary, d/o Thomas Hurley (farmer) & Mary Cavanagh, born 1831, Bird Hill, Co Tipperary, Ireland.[282] Probably the Mary Irwin, d/o Thomas & Mary, died 1860, Sydney, NSW.[15] At the time of the marriage James resided Wollombi, NSW, Australia and Mary, a house servant, resided Woolloomooloo Street, Sydney, NSW, Australia.[282] Mary emigrated to Sydney, Australia, 1856, on the Lloyds, both of her parents were dead but she had a sister, Margaret, living in Ultimo, Sydney, NSW, Australia.[282]

Thomas was from Co Tyrone, Ireland. Township unknown. Appears in the same area and uses similar forenames as the branch of the Ballygawley Irwin's who settled in Canada.

 Richard's obituary: "In his ninety-first year Mr. Richard Irwin passed to the great beyond early on Tuesday morning this week. His death occurred at his home in Alliston after an illness of some weeks but which only became alarming on Saturday when he was stricken with a stroke or paralysis. Mr. Irwin was one of the pioneers of which in his younger days was a part of Simcoe County, but is now the northern section of the county of Dufferin. He was born in the township of Chinguacousy of Irish parents, the national characteristics of which love, kindness and hospitality he carried with him and practiced through his long life of four score and ten years. When a child, his parents moved to Mono township settling on a bush farm amongst the hills that prevail in that splendid agricultural area of the present. Here, a home was hewn out of the forest and as the members of the famity reached years of maturity they branched out for themselves. Richard went north to the township of Mulmur and took up a farm near the village of Rosemont at Violet Hill as the home post office was named. This was also a bush township but the young man's knowledge of clearing and his experience at the homestead stood him to good service and in a few years he had a considerable portion ofhis property cleared and under cultivation. It was a period of trials and privation, but the stock from whence he came was never daunted and it was so with him. The farm he cleared is today broad acres with fine buildings and one of the most valuable properties of Mulmur township. While in Mulmur, Mr. Irwin married Margaret McGowan, daughter of a pioneer, together they were privileged to go along the pathway of life for nearly sixty years, Mrs. Irwin being called away in 1919. Of their family of sons and daughters all except two are scattered far from the home surroundings, chiefly in the Canadian west. One daughter, Mrs. McCuire, lived in Alliston with her father and one son is Dr. J.H. Irwin of Collingwood. Mr. Irwin enjoyed his years on the farm. He found pleasure in his work and in doing it well, received ample reward. He was of a sociable turn and was always pleased to meet with his fiiends. At no time, either on the Mulmur homestead or in the home in Alliston, was there not a cordial welcome for visitors. He never sought public life but always maintained an interest in the affairs of the day. He read the papers carefully and could always discuss current events with an intelligence that gave his conversation a special interest. He was a conservative and a member of the Anglican church. The gathering at the funeral service on Thursday afternoon was a very fine tribute to the one who had spent ninety years in the community. Besides the relatives there were amongst the number of friends of sixty and seventy years standing old men who had known Mr. Irwin as a neighbour and a friend and throughout the years had always held him in the highest respect. The service was commenced at the home at two o'clock by Rev. P.W.A. Roberts, a former rector of Mr. Irwin, who spoke sincerely and sympathetically of the fine life of the deceased and of his great faith as to the future. At the Anglican church to which the cortege moved and which was filled, the rector Rev. A.C. McCollum was assisied by Rev. Mr. Roberts and Rev. R.H. Brett of Chippewa, an old friend of Mr. Irwin, who read the scripture selections. Rev. McCollum spoke for a few minutes earnestly and sincerely impressing upon the congregation the assurance of immortality and a future life that will follow the period spent on earth. Mr. Irwin he said, was a man with grear faith, grear love for his church and a full confidence as to the future. He had passed on and the tribute of respect paid to him was worthy of the man. At the conclusion of the service the funeral moved to the cemetery of St. Luke's church the stone church in Mulmur township which Mr. Irwin had attended for three score years or more. There, all that was mortal of the pioneer, the father and the friend was laid in a grave alongside his wife and other members of the family, old friends and neighbours standing with bowed uncovered heads while the service of the Anglican Church was repeated by Rev. Mr. McCollum. The chief mourners were a son of the deceased, Dr. J.H. Irwin and his son Dick of Collingwood, and his daughter Mrs. Maguire. The pallbearers were six nephews; Messrs. Thomas Irwin, Cleve Irwin, J. Peacock, John Moore, Ernest McNabb. J.O. Irwin. Amongst those present were Mr. Hamilton Irwin brother of the deceased now living in Toronto, R.A. Halbert, M.P., J.E. Jamieson M.P.P., Dr. A.E. Webster, Toronto and Dr. T. Gowan, Homings Mills."[286] 
Farmer, 1871, 1881.[286] Married Margaret Gowan, 2/1/1862, Alliston, Simcoe Co, Ontario, Canada, by Rev. A.J. Fidler.[286] Witness was Thomas Gowan of Mulmur.[286] Richard resided Mono & Margaret resided Mulmur.[286] Margaret born 1/3/1841, Harriston, Ontario & died 27/11/1919, Alliston, Ontario, Canada.[286]
 "Mrs. Irwin, wife of Richard Irwin of Alliston, formerly of Violet Hill, passed away at her home in that town on Thursday of last week. Death was due to a stroke of paralysis sustained early in the fall. Besides her husband, six sons and three daughters survive. The sons are: John, Collingwood, Edmund in South Affica; Wm., Ham., Sybil and Pill., in the West. The daughters are: Mrs. James Halbert, in the West; Mrs. McGuire and Miss Mabel Irwin of Regina, Sask. Her remains were interred in St. Luke's cemetery, Mulmur, on Saturday afternoon last. Mrs. Richard lrwin, for many years an esteemed resident of Rosemont section and for some years a highly respected lady of town, died at her home on Wellington Steet on Thursday of last week. Death was due to a paralytic stroke."[268]
"Mrs Richard Irwin dead; a stroke suffered by Mrs. Irwin two months ago, from the effects of which she never recovered. Mrs. Irwin, whose maiden name was Margaret Gowan, was born in Queen's county, Ireland, in 1841, and when a child came with her parents to Bond Head where she grew to womanhood and where in 1862 she was married to Mr. Irwin whose helpmeet she was for the long period of 57 years. After her marriage she went to live in Mulmur township and remained there till she and her husband retired from the farm and came to Alliston a few years ago. Mrs. Irwin possessed all the sterting characteristics of the women of the generation now in the evening of life. She was ever solicitous of the welfare of others and hospitable to a fault. In St. Luke's church, Mulmur, she was a leader among the women for many years and all the auxiliary activities of parochial effect were actively supported by her. During the years of the war, through past the Psalmist's allotted span, she took a lively interest in Red Cross work and day after day for three years and more she spent hours plying the knitting needles. Her contribution of socks to the soldiers is in itself a splendid monument to her sympathetic nature. In 1912 Mrs. Irwin and her husband celebrated the golden anniversary of their wedding and through her remaining years this was one of the brightest spots in her life. She is survived by her husband and a family of eight sons and daughters all of whom are in Western Canada and the Westen States except one son, Dr. Irwin of Collingwood. The funeral took place Saturday, interment being made in St. Luke's cemetery, Mulmur. Rev. J. L. Gray conducted the funeral service."[286]

Joseph & Archibald were living in adjacent dwellings in 1851. Note also that Archibald named his eldest son, Joseph. Joseph probably had additional children born between 1830-1839, however there was no trace of them in Lochiel in the 1851 census. The parish of Clogherny borders that of Errigal Keerogue, to the north-west. Joseph & Archibald appear to have emigrated to Canada between 1835-1837.[288]

Whilst not from Tyrone, this family settled in the same townships as the Canadian branch of the Ballygawley Irwin's and used many of the same forenames. Thomas was one of the pioneer settlers of Simcoe Co, Ontario. Note that Simcoe Co was created in 1843, however I have also used that location for events that occured within it's present day borders prior to its creation. Dufferin Co was created from Simcoe Co in the late 1800's, but since most events were prior to its creation, I have generally used Simcoe Co throughout, even when in Dufferin Co.
