Name: James Breen
Birth Date: 7 Dec 1854

This is the only child called Bridget that I can see:

Births Jun 1854 (>99%)
BREEN Bridget Liverpool 8b 28

There's a John Breen on the 1851 census born in Ireland in 1825, at Liverpool St. Martins.

John Breen 26 Ireland Liverpool, St Martins
Catherine Breen 27 Ireland Liverpool, St Martins
Margaret Breen 11 Ireland Liverpool, St Martins
James Breen 0 Liverpool Liverpool, St Martins
(FMP has James as John).
The children's names are right but the ages are all over the place so it may just be coincidence.

They left from Liverpool, not that it helps much

Name: Bridget Breen
Estimated Birth Year: abt 1832
Age: 25
Arrival Date: 1 Jul 1857
Arrival Port: Melbourne, Australia
Departure Port: Liverpool
Ship: Indiana
Nationality: Irish

His nationality is given as Irish as well

One of the children was baptised in Liverpool, assuming it is the correct child, it may not be as I can't see the others born before they left

Name: James Breen
Birth Date: 9 Sep 1852
Baptism Date: 19 Sep 1852
Parish: St Mary's
Father's Name: James Breen
Mother's name: Bridget Breen

As you know the names of some of the children, it would be helpful, please, if you would give the approximate geographical location of the birth of the children. Thank you.
