Anna Maria Rowe and William Bray

Now, do I call this one Hodges, Bray or Leahy? 

That is the big question!

Here is some background and hopefully, if you are connected to this branch you can help fill in some blanks.

Louisa Bray, the daughter of John & Maria BRAY was christened 4 August 1861 at St Blazey, Cornwall. I had narrowed down their arrival to between 1861 and 1877, Louisa's death certificate states she had been in the colonies for 72 years which makes her about 4 when she arrived. I believe William, Maria and Louisa arrived at Port Adelaide, Australia on 1st May 1865 onboard the Clara.

In 1841 there were three people onboard the 'New York Packet' which sailed into Sydney that would play a part in the Pinkerton Lineage. They were James PINKERTON, aged 23, a native of Derry, Ireland; Mary Ann POLLOCK, aged 21, and her younger sister Margaret POLLOCK, aged 18 both from Leckpatrick, Co. Tyrone, Ireland.
