Nanny Jay I have a Sarah Annie Mathews b Dublin c 1831. Sarah was the daughter of Henry Maxwell Mathews Esq., and Sarah Annie Mathews, of Moyally, Meath, Ireland. My Sarah married a John Potter in Dublin, 1851. John's father was a Clerk in Holy Orders. I believe that they may have emigrated to Victoria, Australia. Happy to make any connections. [contact link]
