Our MURPHY ancestors came to Australia from the townland of Bog West near Mayglass in County Wexford, Ireland. Dennis MURPHY, son of Phillip MURPHY and Mary LAMPORT, emigrated from Ireland with his spouse, Jane Elizabeth MURPHY (nee WHEELOCK), and children on the clipper ship 'Shalimar' arriving in Victoria, Australia, on 9 February 1855. Dennis was about 43 years of age when he arrived. Dennis MURPHY had been a farmer in Ireland and he became a cab proprietor in Melbourne, Victoria.
Dennis and Jane MURPHY are buried in the Melbourne General Cemetery, Victoria. Their children were William James (13 years), Mary (10 years), Philip Charles (7 years), James (4 years) and Jane Elizabeth (infant). Only William James MURPHY and his brother James MURPHY had children in Australia. Philip Charles MURPHY died in Greymouth, New Zealand.
Daryl MURPHY is a great grandson of William James MURPHY (c1841-1909), grandson of George Davidson MURPHY (1880-1933) and son of George 'Lionel' MURPHY (1914-1976).
The last MURPHY to have lived at house 2 in Bog West, County Wexford, was Mary MURPHY who, at the time of the 1911 Census of Ireland (according to the National Archives of Ireland), was aged 69 years. In 1911, Mary - who never married - lived with her brother-in-law, James KING, a widower aged 55 years, and his son, James KING aged 20 years. James KING had married Bridget MURPHY (daughter of John MURPHY, farmer) on1 Feb 1883. Bridget KING (nee MURPHY) died some time between 1890 and 1901.
The Welcome photograph above (which was taken 12 May 2008) depicts the ruins which are all that remain of the site where - in the townland of Bog West, County Wexford - our MURPHY ancestors had resided.
