red mail William Callinan born c1808 Limerick died Sydney
SEEKING DESCENDANTS FOR FAMILY HISTORY COMPILATION There is a record of a William Callinan who emigrated to Victoria, Australia in 1858: "Callinan William, 50 years of age, August, 1858 arrived on the ship 'Donald McKay'." He was alone on the ship. The death certificate for William Callinan, 11 October, 1887, (obtained) shows that he died at 230 Bourke Street, Sydney, aged 79 years which makes him born circa 1808. The certificate states his father was John Callinan a farmer, and his mother was Margaret Minahan. Informant for the death was his son William Callinan, 27 old, a Civil Servant living at 230 Bourke St, Sydney. His death was registered on 11 October, 1887. He was buried on 12 October, 1887 in the Roman Catholic Cemetery, Petersham. The certificate states that William Callinan was born in Limerick Ireland, and had been in New South Wales for 29 years at the time of his death. This means he emigrated to Australia around 1858 as stated in the Victorian records. This was some eight years ahead of his wife Julia (Nee Mackay) on board the ship "Africana" on 15.3.1866. The certificate states he married Julia Mackay, when he was 35 years of age (circa 1843- see # below) at the Roman Catholic Church, Thurles Co. Tipperary, Ireland. It lists his children as being; Mary A, 43 years; Jane (Kilday) 40 years; Kate, 38 years; Margaret, 33 years; Edward, 31 years; Julia, 29 years; William, 27 years, all living. The certificate states that there were 2 males and one female deceased. At the New South Wales State Archives, Kingswood, Corrective Services Registers of Prison Staff c1867-1873 and Prison Officers c1881-1887 show that William Callinan was first appointed as a Warder at Denniliquin Gaol 28 May, 1862, replacing an officer named Boyden. He worked there for seven years and was transferred to Wollongong Gaol on 1 August, 1869 salary during this time was six shillings and six pence a day. He was transferred to Parramatta Gaol on 1 February, 1875 where he was employed as a "messenger". He retired from the Prison Service on 21 October, 1881.
