Australian Martins

Our photo depicts the family of John Martin (son of Thomas of Kiln Street who has featured here before) and Mary, nee McManus, daughter of the pawn-broker of Upper North Street.

We do not know the names of any of the children.

It is notable that no one is smiling!

Perhaps the photographer is to blame.

Then again, the whole family was about to emigrate to Melbourne, Australia.

Perhaps they thought they had little to smile about.

Have any of these children survived to today?

We would like to know!
