Looking for James Martin Hillhouse Taylor

Query by miffy1932

Very little is known of this gentleman, who is my husband's gggrandfather. He arrived in Australia before 1847. He was said to have come from Bristol, England. He resided in Morpeth NSW and had a bond store in this town.
Any information relating to his life in Bristol or in Morpeth would be much appreciated.

Looking for this threw up that there was a James Martin Hillhouse of Bristol who built and completed the 'Severn' warship for the Royal Navy in 1786.

I would say that this is probably the Maternal grandfather of your James Martin Hillhouse Taylor.

Some indication of YOB would be helpful; this would help narrow the possibilities.

James died in Morpeth NSW on 23rd December 1875 and was about 61, so this would mean he was possibly born about 1814.

As you can see papers wrong about age.
Just to clarify, is it 'Hillhouse' or James Martin Millhouse Taylor.
James married Mary King at Morpeth in 1847.

Thanks for your reply. I have been to Morpeth but did not get to see Marlborough House but did visit the Cemetery.
Have you got a picture of the Bond Store that James built? It has now been converted to units.
Are you related to this family and if so what branch to you come from?
From what we know it is 'Hillhouse' not Millhouse, it is possible that he is related to the Hillhouse family who built ships in Bristol.
