This directory provides short histories of some 5,000 of the Irish who settled in Australia in the last century. Included also are over 500 abstracts of Irish-Australian wills taken from the printed Irish will calendars 1858-1900. High and low in society are to be found there ranging from a State Governor like Sir Arthur Kennedy of Queensland down to John Augustin Martin, a billiard marker of Inverell, New South Wales, whose estate was valued at £250 when he died in 1892. Significantly, over 80 abstracts relate to women, an important feature since documentation about individual women is meagre.
