Hi,Elizabeth. I have read through your James Barry records in Elizabeth St, because I found our relation Bridget Brown who came to Australia as an Irish orphan went to work for a James Barry in Elizabeth St, as an appretice for two years. I was wondering if you know anything about this orphan who came to Australia on the Lady Kennaway arriving in Melbourne on 6 December 1848. Thank you for your time. Adelle Jordan
