I'm hoping that this thread is still being read. Maureen O'Donnell wrote that her grandfather x xx is John Devenish. My husband is direct from a John Devenish (Oct 1791) who came out 1824 to Sydney as a convict. His birth certificate lists Thomas & Catherine Devenish and we found another certificate for his brother Christopher (b1788). I cannot locate any further information so hoping Maureen can help.
Would love to hear from anyone who has some insight.
