Out of these 8 children John Curtis, William, Elizabeth the 2nd and Christiana made the journey to Australia on the sailing ship the British Empire departing October 1854 and arriving January 1855.
The families often lost children at a young age and when they had a new child they would name it the same as the one they lost. Or slightly different..like Susan to Susannah. Or John to John Curtis.
I don't have the details of these children's history. If they passed away. Or why they did not accompany their mum and siblings to Australia. I will update this when I find out.
