My ancestors John and Johanna Twomey (not as the spelling in the records) arrived from Ireland as free settlers. Johanna died of fever in St Mary's hospital on the 7th Feb 1855 ( in the death records as Johannah Tooney). Two of their children are sent to the orphanage for a short while. The other two children being older are sent out as servants. The family go on to Victoria and settle there eventually at Euroa.
