Andrew Kerr and Elisa Mary (nee Laird) resided at 113, Palmer-street Woolloomooloo in 1858 at the same time one street over Robert Laird and his wife lived at Crown Street. There is a clear connection of both Andrew Kerr and his wife Elisa Mary (nee Laird) to Londonderry and indeed James Laird Esq of Londonderry (who at this time lived at Bogstown Farm Shantallow). It also seems that there may be a link given the proximity of the Laird families in Woolloomooloo. To date no marriage information has been obtained on the Kerr’s either in Australia or Londonderry.
