Sinnott is my mother’s family name.  My Sinnott ancestors arrived in 1840 on the “Vesper” to Melbourne, Vic and eventually settled in the south-western district of Victoria.

The Sinnotts were from County Wexford, Ireland.

Thomas and Jane Sinnott arrived with their three children.  Two sons were born in Melbourne and two more children were born in Port Fairy.

The names of the children were Bridget (md James Kelly); Mary (md John W Crowe), Patrick, Michael, William, John and Jane (md Patrick Leddin).
