When researching the first, second and third generations, an irrestible urge to know more about their spouses led to even more research.
All of the first generation – the children of Thomas and Ellen Clarke – married young men and women who were either born in Ireland or their parents were born in Ireland.
Keeping in mind that the main focus of the book, Clarkes in Australia, was the story of the Clarke families, I included information about the related families as a starting point for research. Remember to follow correct genealogical practices and verify the details yourself!
If you are related to these families and would like to add to the information, please contact us.
