Hello Sue, The YARROW sisters arrived in Sydney January 1842 from Oritor, Co. Tyrone as assisted immigrants (passages had been paid by the colonial government) on the “Margaret”.
Oritor is a 289 acre townland within Kildress parish, near Cookstown KILDRESS TITHE APPLOTMENT BOOK entries for both Yarrows and Nobbs (phonetic spelling is of no concern as it was fully acceptable at that time) https://www.cotyroneireland.com/tithe/tithe_Kildress.html NABBS, Thomas, Orator YARROW, James, Stramackilmartin YARROW, John, Stramackilmartin YARROW, Mathew, Orator YARROW, Thomas, Strens JAMES and JOHN NEWBURY from Oritor arrived in Sydney as assisted immigrants on the “Oriental” April 1850; have you encountered them in your research? It is possible they were related or neighbours persuaded to emigrate as a result of encouraging letters received from Sydney?

Hello Sue A small note … I have come across the surname “Knobbs” in Londonderry, ca. 1900. William Knobbs was a stonemason, wife Sarah, daughter Matilda. Possibly “Nobbs” and “Knobbs” were spelling variations of the same surname.

Hi Team I have recently subscribed to the email list so apologies if what I am asking is not what this list is designed for.. My name is Sue Piper. My great great grandmother was Matilda Yarrow who immigrated to Australia from Oritor County Tyrone in 1842. Matilda arrived with her 2 sisters , Margaret and Eliza. Their father is listed as Mathew Yarrow (bootmaker) and mother as Margaret or (Anne) Yarrow (née Nobbs as stated on the death certificate I have for Matilda). I have been trying to find information about Matilda, her siblings and her parents to see where they came from ( if they immigrated to Ireland from elsewhere -Scotland perhaps??). I have found reference to a Mathew Yarrow on the Tithe Aplotments register in 1826 for Kildress and was wondering if this is the same person. I have checked John Grenham and there is no Mathew Yarrow mentioned so i have no idea when he passed away - or why the sisters shipped to Australia in 1842 (seems for work however). I am travelling to Ireland in mid June but will not have time to get to Tyrone. Hoping you can point me in the right direction? Kindest rehgards Sue Piper
