This orphan has been claimed by: Barry Ayers

Thomas is the son of William McCafferty ex Equestrian of December 1852 and Ann Girvan ex Sir Robert Seppings of July 1852. There is no record that I can find of the birth of Thomas. However his death certificate 1916/007047 NSW registers his parents as William and Ann.
