REDDROP William and Margaret WILLIAMS arrived in Australia 1863

Information Journal.

William REDDROP and his wife Margaret WILLIAMS and their eight children arrived in Victoria, Australia on the "Great Britain" in April 1863.

The older son, Joseph, came out before the family on the "Great Britain" in December 1861, aged 24 years. There was also a C REDDROP, aged 19 years, recorded on the passenger list but my research has not confirmed if they were related.

The REDDROP family were recorded on the 1863 passenger list as follows.

William - aged 43 years.
Margaret - aged 45 years.

Elizabeth - aged 23 years.
Margaret - aged 22 years.
Ann - aged 20 years.
Charles - aged 19 years.
William - aged 16 years.
James - aged 14 years.
Richard - aged 9 years.
Frances - aged 7 years.

These were their ages given at the time the passage was booked, and not their ages when they arrived. Depending on their month and year of birth, and the time span from the time of booking their passage and the date of sailing could mean they were a year older when they arrived.

My research has located nine children for Richard and Margaret.
