  • Notes 
    • Chrissie Macken to Rex Sinnott 9 Nov 2016:
      Rex, I was rereading the Mackereth family document you put together when I realised that two Mackereth siblings married two O’Brien family members.
      James O’Brien m Lucy Ann Mackereth: came out on the Coromandel arrived 1837-01-12 with son Frederick and daughter Lucy Louise. He died shortly after arrival and she married John Hollamby in SA on 1838-11-02 at Adelaide (assume he died) then she married John Wheland on 1847-04-26.
      George Mackereth married James’ sister Sarah Ann.
      Mary Mackereth another sister is said to have married Thompson, I think in SA.
      James Mackereth advertised for the three children of Mary Thompson nee Mackereth and Frederick O’Brien. I had assumed that this was another husband but now I think he was tracking his nephews and nieces from his two sisters.
      Note also that in the Scott Creek History they refer to Sarah Ann O’Brien hoping to join her brother who had travelled out here earlier. “Family tradition indicates he was an artist, using a nom-de-plume, who had been engaged by a member of the South Australian Company to illustrate the beauties of the colony to entice prospective immigrants.”
      I think this is a reference to James O’Brien whom I think was a painter. Also on the Coromandel was Malpas a member of the South Australian Company.
