This orphan has been claimed by: Franklyn Parrent

Emily, the daughter of Thomas Fry and Emma Fowler, is my half great great aunt. On 3rd Feb 1862 she married Michael Macarthy in the Parish Church, Bothwell. I have not been able to trace Michael's parents or any descendants of Emily and Michael. (I have an image of a sketch of the "Tasmania 1" on which Emma and Emily sailed from England in 1844, if that is on any interest.) Any help would be very much appreciated.
Many thanks
