REDDROP Richard and Margaret WILLIAMS arrived in Australia 1863

Journal by tonkin

Information & Research Journal.

William REDDROP and his wife Margaret WILLIAMS, and their eight children, arrived in Victoria, Australia on the "Great Britain" in April 1863.

The older son, Joseph, came out before the family on the "Great Britain" in December 1861, aged 24 years. There was also a "C" REDDROP, aged 19 years, recorded on the passenger list but my research has not confirmed if this "C" was a younger brother to Joseph. I'm still trying to ID this "C" REDDROP.

The REDDROP family were recorded on the 1863 passenger list as follows.

William - 43 years.
Margaret - 45 years.

Elizabeth - 23 years.
Margaret - 22 years.
Ann - 20 years.
Charles - 19 years.
William - 16 years.
James - 14 years.
Richard - 9 years.
Frances - 7 years.

These were their ages given at the time the passage was booked, and not their ages when they arrived. Depending on their month and year of birth, and the time span from the time of booking their passage and the date of sailing could mean they were a few years older when they arrived.

My research indicates they had nine children. This is how I see the family.
