This orphan has been claimed by: Judy Millar

I have only just discovered Patrick Holden! His mother was Margaret Holden who was from Kilkenny in Ireland, arrived in VDL on the John Calvin in 1848. On the Convict Indent it said that she had 2 of her 3 children with her, a little girl, Margaret, aged 1 but, until today, I could find absolutely no mention of the other child. I can not wait to do some more research and fill in more blanks.
