John Judge (Formerly John Breheny)
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.

- James Judge
