  • Notes 


    • Catherine and her twin sister Elizabeth were born on 3 Jan 1823 in Liverpool, England.  They were baptised on 5 Jan 1823 at St Peter's Priory in Liverpool.

      Catherine was in the 1841 UK census at Mersey Street in Liverpool, aged 18.  At the same address were her father Patrick (60), brother John (24), sister Ann (20) and Catherine's twin sister Elizabeth.

      Catherine appeared in the 1851 census of England at 11 Saint James Street in Liverpool.  She was the head of the household, even though her older brother John and sister Ann were at the same address.  Catherine's occupation was given as shopkeeper.  John was a plumber and painter, and Ann an assistant shopkeeper.

      Catherine arrived in Adelaide, South Australia on 15 June 1852 from London and Plymouth on 6 March 1852.  She was a government immigrant on the ship "Standard".

      Catherine Boyle and William Sinnott married on 18 May 1853 at St Francis Church in Melbourne, Victoria.  Witnesses at the marriage were John Boyle (Catherine's brother) and Catherine Simpson.

      Their only child, William, was born in early August 1854 in Melbourne. 

      Catherine died on 31 Aug 1854 from Pthisis Pulmonalis, consumption of the lungs, and was buried on 2 September.  William jun. died at the age of 7 weeks on 22 September.

      Note that the marriage certificate for Catherine’s husband William and his second wife Sarah Jane Richardson states that Catherine died in March 1854, no doubt to create a more decent interval before his second marriage in Nov 1854.
