KIDD William and Sarah BIRD
Information & Research Journal.
Children of William KIDD and Sarah Ann BIRD.
William KIDD and Sarah BIRD arrived in Victoria, Australia, on the Fairle in June 1856. They were recorded on the passenger list as follows:
William KIDD aged 32 years.
Sarah KIDD aged 30 years.
George KIDD aged 10 years.
Sarah KIDD aged 5 years.
William KIDD aged 2 years.
When they arrived in Victoria they registered the birth of another daughter, Caroline Fairlie KIDD, born on the voyage out to Australia. I don't think I would be wrong to say they gave Caroline the second given name of Fairle after the ship Fairle. William and Sarah had eight more children in Victoria.
This is what the records tell me about the family.
William died 1898 in Diamond Creek, Victoria, aged 76 years. Father recorded as Samuel KIDD, mother unknown.
Sarah died 1888 Yarra Bend, Victoria, aged 65 years. Parents recorded as unknown.
