The Pollocks in Ireland always seemed to be farmers. Little changed in the move to Australia. Grain and livestock farming are still significant Polloccupations
3. Kilpatricks In Ireland
Mary Jane Kilpatrick was born at Teevickmoy, two miles from Liskeran in 1848. Her parents were George Kilpatrick, a farmer and Janet Fairman. Her brother Thomas Kilpatrick preceded her in emigrating to Australia, while her parents and many other relatives also moved from Donegal to northern Victoria in the 1870s.
The name Kilpatrick is Scottish in origin, meaning church of Patrick. It is not possible to trace it to a particular location because the same name was used for different places. According to Jim Pollock in Ireland, the Kilpatricks of Teevickmoy had all deceased 'about 70years ago'.
