janilye - 7th generation, Convict stock. Born in New South Wales now living in Victoria, carrying, with pride 'The Birthstain'.
I'm wondering if descendants of the above Samuel Illingwarth moved over to NZ
will have to research that
If you do I will link it
Poor Caroline Arnold had a dreadful time of it. Maybe I should look into a few of these passengers and see how they finished up.
that would make good reading, as Caroline's story certainly is
you need to 'turn off' your italics under NOTES in journal :)
Thanks I didn't notice that.
I found H Stiggants and wife. I mean how many of them could there be? I contacted a rellie and just waiting for confirmation and then he goes into the PINK
I checked another copy of a passenger list and it is clearly Illingworth with an O.
Also where I had Suashall it looks like Snashall neither makes any sense to me. But I suppose it would to a relative.
Now I'm working on German emigrants from Hamburg and Rio and by the look of these names I think Snashall was on the wrong boat.
From my Houghton research I know there was a Henry STIGGANTS and Miriam HOUGHTON had a son named Henry. He was born in Port Adelaide on the 29 December 1852.
This is the only Henry STIGGANTS I came across in this time frame and expect it will be him. Hope this helps a bit.
Thanks Roy that's the one I checked out. It is him. I'm doing a profile now.
This Henry and Miriam had a few more children in Victoria. If you don't have all the details let me know.
Thanks tonkin, I think I got them all. Just need a pic now!
Mr J Pearce, wife and child are the relatives of my husband. James Pearce settled in South Australia and became the second Mayor or Kapunda and a member for Light. His son (Samuel), became a prospector and discovered amongst other things, the Golden MIle in Kalgoorlie. Much has been written of this family.
