Hi Craig and other kind helpers

I wonder if you could help me on my early Garrett family from Lonan. The extent of what I have is below. I can be contacted direct at artemisia@grapevine.com.au.

Cheers, Ross of Canberra

When married to Philip Cowin on 8 April 1843 at Lonan Parish, the marriage certificate (page 31 of General Registry 1843) records Philip, 33 years, as a farmer in good circumstances with father Thomas Cowin, and records Margaret, 20 years, as a farmerís daughter with father William Garrett. Both fathers were recorded as farmers and the couple was recorded as resident in the parish of Lonan. This couple, their family and two Garrett brothers emigrated to Australia around 1851.
