Cotter family of New Farm Queensland - Falvey charts (page 1 of 2, charts
3 - 7 are on page 2).
These 7 sheets of various Queensland Falvey families contain people who
appear in released Queensland births, marriages and deaths records, or are
shown as eg parents even if not in Australia. It is possible some have been
missed, so a particular line of interest could be progressed by going to the
source microfiche and CD available in many Queensland (and perhaps major interstate)
At the time of putting up these charts only the families of Daniel Falvey
the elder and Alice O'Brien (sheet 1) and their son Daniel Joseph and his
wife Margaret Boyle (sheet 2) appear linked to the Cotter family of New
Farm, Daniel the elder and Alice being Mary Healy's grandparents.
However the other sheets, having been drawn up as part of the process, may
as well be put up too and may be of use to someone.They may later be shown
to have a link to the first two.
In all cases there may be people not on the sheets who should be there.
Generally only people appearing in Queensland records are included. For
example if a sibling stayed in Ireland, or was in another Australian state
they probably are not picked up.
Sheet 1 below - this family was around Toowoomba, Queensland. Daniel (at
least) came to Australia about 1875 and settled near Cambooya. It appears
this was at "the Sugar Loaf" , an area about 9k from Cambooya. Two of his
sons are subsequently shown to have been at Ramsay, adjacent to (now) Sugarloaf.

Above - Falvey family gravesites within fence - Drayton cemetery, Toowoomba,
Above - This stone also records the burial here of Patrick d 17.2.1888
(result of horse riding accident) aged 32 years as can be made out at the
top of the photo. The stone was erected originally for Patrick and the other
inscriptions added later. Daniel and Alice were Mary Healy's grandparents
and Daniel J was her uncle.
George Gordon was born at Burnside Scotland, 5.9.1834. He went to sea
at 13 and while gold digging in New Zealand about 1860 met Julia Falvey
who had migrated from Ireland. They were married in Victoria 24.6.1867,
returning to Scotland and Ireland for their honeymoon. When they departed
London 23.4.1868 to return to Australia they were accompanied by George's
younger brother Robert and Julia's younger sister Bridget. They lived at
"Heatherwick" near Boonah from 1869. Robert and Bridget were married in the
Presbyterian church Ipswich 8.4.1875 and returned to Robert's farm "Gibraltar",
near George's farm. It seems therefore that at least two of Daniel
the elder and Alice's children were in Australia when they arrived in 1875.

Sheet 2 below - this family was also from around Toowoomba and Daniel
Joseph was the son of Daniel and Alice in sheet 1 above. Daniel Joseph
was shown as living at Ramsay nr Cambooya in 1897. He had previously worked
as a shearer and also a butcher in Toowoomba before settling at Hillview,
Ramsay in 1887. It is believed some of his five sons farmed at Greenmount,
also near Cambooya.
