X is for Xavier

X is not for Xavier Curry.

People have been asking me if I would be able to cover the difficult letters eg Q, X, Y and Z in this challenge. Smugly I said I had it all sorted. Well, I was wrong. I had presumed that X would be easy because there are lots of Irish Currys, many of them are Catholic and Xavier is a Catholic name.  It seems that Catholic Currys in Australia have not been calling their sons Xavier.

After finding nothing on Trove. I did a Google search and came up with one Xavier Curry (living) so I didn’t pursue him any further. I then tried an Ancestry search limited to Australia. No Xaviers.

The best I can do is a burial record for Jackson Xavier Curry who died in Finley, NSW in 1996.

When I started out on this challenge I aimed to make my posts short and sweet. I have achieved this with X.
