John Judge (Formerly John Breheny)


John Judge - Brother to James Joseph Breheny (Judge in Australia)

John Judge – Brother to James Joseph Breheny (Judge in Australia)

John ‘known as Jack’ Breheny, was born 5/06/1892 in Carracastle, County Mayo Ireland  – Buried Townsville date TBC). On emigrating to Australia John and his two brothers changed their surname to Judge (after their grandmother’s maiden name).  I don’t believe they did this officially, so will need to confirm this fact later in my research.

Can you see the resemblance John has to his mother Catherine Breheny. What a great photo as he looks so relaxed with his pipe.

John married Mary Kelly and they had six children, 3 girls and 3 boys.

  1. Margaret Patterson (nee Judge, youngest of siblings) living in Brisbane
  2. Ellen Judge (Brisbane, silent no)
  3. James Judge
  4. Kathleen Weber (nee Judge, Deceased)
  5. Patrick Judge (never married in Townsville)
  6. John ‘Junior’. John was married to Alma of Townsville (1952 – 1985 Died aged 53 of a car accident where a car hit him on his bicycle on his way home from working on the railways. When he died he still had two children still at school).
