my husband's line is via George and Ellen Stanford's son, Henry (Harry), who married Grace Bass Rittmeester. George (the son of Jerimiah and Elizabeth nee Day) had a sister who married in Eng before moving to NZ.
Would you know the NSW arrival date for George.

George arrived at 26 years old on the "Hotspur". He was born on 29/9/1836. He came out with Robert White Crisp,his wife Sophia and family,plus William and Betsy Crisp's daughter Julia.
The Hotspur left Plymouth on 11/4/1862 and arrived 18/7/1862.He died 29/4/1916.
He married Ellen Crisp on 2/4/1867. Ellen had come out earlier with her family on "Blemheim" in 1855.
I have most of George's story and photos so contact me on stan@hwy.com.au for more.

Hi Aussie J,
I have a lot of Crisp history but your names are not there.
Are they in Australia?

I have a George Crisp in my family tree. He was married to Ann Perkins. All I have is Ann died 1934. I am related to their daughter Caroline who married Neils Visted Biltoft. They are from Australia. Any help with George would be great.

George Crisp is my great grandfather. He was born in 1846 in Upper Lydbrook Gloucestershire in the Forest of Dean. He arrived in Sydney Australia in 1874, travelled by horse drawn wagon to Charters Towers in 1882 and worked as a gold assayer at Mt Leyshon and Charters Towers. Before arriving in Sydney he was a ships captain in the British Navy. He married Annie Perkins who died on 29 November 1934 and is buried in the Charters Towers Cemetery. George died in 1942 at the age of 96 and is buried in the Charters Towers Cemetery. George was 6 feet 4 inches in height with snowy white hair and was blind in later life. They had
eight children. Annie Perkins was an opera singer and at the age of 19 sang for the Prince of Wales. Goerge's ancestors are traced back through the Forest of Dean in Wales to Richard Crisp of Ledbury in Herefordshire.
