McConaghy/Flatt/Nairn/Creer Family History

Welcome graphic

Four families from England, Ireland, Scotland and the Isle of Man emigrated to Australia in the mid 19th century for better lives.
 
They had a shared destiny.
 
This site tells something of their background in the "Old Country" and their struggle in the New World.

Alexander McConaghy married Louisa Flatt in Sydney. One of their seven children was Aubrey McConaghy.
 
James Hannah Nairn married Sarah Jane Creer and had two children including a daughter, Jean Nairn.
 
Aubrey McConaghy and Jean Nairn married in Moree, but lived most of their lives in Sydney.
