Much has been added to this tree including rich histories of the Aherns of Boston who are my maternal ancestors, and my Australian wife, Janet's family - the Barnetts of Melbourne who are descendants of a First Fleeter British Marine and a Second Fleeter convict, Catherine Hyland whose sentence to die by burning at the stake in England for forgery was commuted to transportation to Australia for life.
