Greetings from Australia.

My great great grandfather was George Byrne. Born 1820? in Avondale, County Wicklow, Ireland according to his death certificate.

I am a little intrigued by his birthplace because that was the home of Charles Stuart Parnell.

George's father was Thomas Byrne (miller) and Mary Steadman.

George left Ireland in 1855 for Portland, Victoria, Australia on a ship called "Cairngorm".

Trying to trace our tree in Ireland.

Thank you in advance.
