hi Joolz,

saw your private message after I posted the above comment
Don't know where I put the info you asked about. Your Aunty hasn't still got it has she?

by joolz18 on 2013-03-31 04:38:11

No I don't think so. I have most the above information and she was mentioning that you had said something about Bertha, who is a right colourful character. I seem to think she said something about there maybe being a son Henry who died??

I realise you would have most of the above info but I threw it in there so that others may recognise the family. The more info the more the chance ...

By the way, what year was Janetta Nicol born?
If her mother died in 1861
Did they arrive on the Mariner of 1850 or 1859

Hi, they arrived on the Mariner in 1850. There is a memorial at the waterfront in Nelson, which lists the first boats and their passengers into Nelson and they are listed there. Florence was 6, James was 35 and Elizabeth was 31. Janetta was born in 1854. Elizabeth didn't die until 1922. Janetta Kate Nicol married a Richard Sowman. I have some death dates you might not have for the tribe above. . Louise Harris is Louisa Harris, she married a Henry Simmonds. Florence Harris (the younger one), married a Thomas Turner. Eliza Harris married a Charles Pollard. Thanks for your help with this.

Right, I'm getting myself a tad confused!! I looked at Florences death date and not Elizabeth. Yes definately 1861 when she died, so Janetta was quite young.

thank you...
that was doing my head in a bit
thought it was ME who was confused :))
