    Notes:

    Thomas Moody was born in Omagh, Tyrone, in Northern Ireland in 1861. He came to Queensland in 1877, aged 16. In 1883 he married his wife, Mary, in Townsville. The children of the marriage were Mary Jane, Barbara, Thomas, William, George, Sam and Bert.
    Thomas was killed (fractured skull) in a fall from a horse whilst taking part in a race near Herberton.
    The Moody homestead was the first home constructed over Granite Creek in Mareeba and was situated on the southern side of what is now known as Starcke Street and faced Granite Creek. Today a street named Moody Street is in the vicinity. There waas a well beside the house for drinking water with a large mango tree covered with bougainvillea near it. The family owned land situated at the back of the current golf course extending across One, Two, Three and Four Mile Creeks which feed intto the Mitchell River. They had stockyards and ran cattle. With horse teams they carted timber from the Atherton Tableland to the sawmill in Mareeba. The sawmill, owned by the Jamieson family, was situated on the northern side of Keeble Street where QRX (Queensland Rail) now has a rail siding.
    During the time Tom Moody snr was a teamster, a timber worker accidentally cut himself with an axe and, due to his workmates having little knowledge of first aid, bled to death. As a result of the incident Tom pressed the timber workers and locals to learn the rudiments of first aid and, as an incentive to learn, donated the timber for an ambulance building at Atherton. A plaque to his memory is embedded in the cement wall of the Atherton Ambulance building.
    Descendants of this family, third, fourth, fifth and sixth generations still living in Mareeba are too numerous to mention individually. They include some members of the Moody, Jones, Moore, Trimble, MeFarlane, Pollard, Cetinich, Gear, Brady, Malcolm, Vohland and Martin families.

    Subject: [IRL-ANTRIM] Thomas Boyd Higginson of Canada 1958
    Reply-To: irl-antrim@...

    During my trip to Scotland, Ireland and USA in 2010, I found the book Descendants of Reverend Thomas Higginson, written by Thomas Boyd Higginson, 1958.

    The book covers the family of Rev Thomas Higginson who married Mary Boyd, the daughter of Archibald Boyd. It would appear Rev Thomas was born about 1700, as he entered Trinity College, Dublin in 1718. However no date was given for the marriage o of Rev Thomas and Mary. It only records 3 children being born to them - a small number for the period - William Higginson (no date), Boyd Higginson (b 1745) and Judith Higginson (b 1739). So I would estimate that there marriage took place in the mid or late 1730's.

    It is know that Rev Thomas Higginson was born in Ballinderry about 12 kms NW of Lisburn in County Antrim. It does not indicate when he joined the Church of Ireland and became a minister, but he was curate of Tickmacrevan (Glenarm) in 1728 and Curate of Cairncastle from 1731 to at least 1768. So I am assuming that this Mary Boyd's family came from eastern County Antrim from one of the Boyd families in the Larne to Glenarm area who I have not yet found.

    The family in the book spans 250 years. I would like to be able to contact the author of this book, Thomas Boyd Higginson, but from some of the references I assume that he has died some decades ago. So does anyone on this list know his children or grandchildren, so that I may be able to correspond with them about this family.

    George married Mary Crookes in 1832 in Ireland. Mary was born about 1810 in Ireland; died in 1851 in Ireland. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]
