Danniel Eyre History

Danniel Eyre Background. Pedigree

Danniel is spelt thus on his Christening record and I have continued to identify him so to avoid confusion with his uncle Daniel Eyre who also came to Australia in 1856 and whose pedigree is shown else where in this study.

Danniel Eyre arrived in Australia aboard the Lord Raglan (a sailing ship that made many trips to Australia) on the 1st November,1860 aged 19. With his previous military experience he joined the Victorian defence force where he remained for two years. He went to the Victorian gold fields around Ballarat but had no luck. Danniel joined the mounted police as a Constable on the 11th June 1866 and was stationed in the South Western New South Wales region via Albury NSW. Danniel met Sarah Harkin and married at Jerilderie NSW in 1868 he was appointed Senior Constable on 1st March 1872. He left the force 3rd October, 1877. Danniel is the nephew of Daniel Eyre shown in the index.
