Hi Chris,

I am also researching Johanna Crowley, I am a descendent via her marriage to Alexander Brown through their daughter Maria.

I have found information about Johanna's parents (both convicts), a history which looks interesting.

I was wondering whether you have made any breakthrough?


Hi Rebecca

Johanna was my great-great grandmother from her first marriage with John Brennan. I have some information including copies of some documents. Email me at with your email address and I'll send it to you.


Hi Chris, my Great Great Great Grant parents were also John Brennan and Johanna Crowely. I also have quite a bit of information and I would love to chat to you and compare our information. I am stuck with John Brennans Father. I know his mother is Margret Brennan but I don't know her maiden name. I also have information on Johanna Crowely's parents and the trial of John Crowely for the murder of her mother. You can email me on Regards Kerri
