From on Tuesday, 24 September 2013
Dear Elizabeth. Re the Thomas Cullen who came to Australia on the "Gilmore" in 1841. He is not the Thomas Cullen that Catherine Monaghan married in Geelong in 1844.
I believe she married the Thomas Cullen who received his ticket of leave in 1842 at Geelong and was older. They are my GGgrandparents and eventually some of their family moved to Western Australia after gold was discovered there.
Your site is very informative and I would love to know where the both of them worked prior to marriage. Thomas was assigned to a Lachlan McAlister in NSW and I know that Lachlan had properties in Port Phillip.
Many Thanks Rae Paine
Answer - I found Lachlan McAlister was also in Gippsland
