John Curtis Tolliday

His mother was Jane Curtis who was born in 1799. She married Nathaniel Tolliday.

John had siblings Susan, Elizabeth, Christiana and William.
John and sister Susan were the same age according to a Census compiled so maybe they were twins. Or born very close together.

I am not sure what happened to Susan at this stage. Or if I have the information wrong. I will get back to that eventually. She did not travel to Australia with the others.

After his father Nathaniel drowned in 1853, his mother Jane and his brother William and sisters Elizabeth and Christiana along with his wife Sarah Miles and Elizabeth's husband Charles Clark migrated to Australia.

The ship British Empire left Southhampton on October 17th 1854 and arrived at Port Henry, Geelong, Victoria on January 15th 1855.

John was married to Sarah and had two daughters at the time of sailing, Fanny and Eva. He was born in 1827 and died 14th August 1902 buried at Ballarat New Cemetery.

His sister Elizabeth was married to Charles Clark at the time of the voyage and they hadan infant daughter called Jane.

His brother William married Priscilla Martha Barton 21st August 1862 in Ballarat. He was born in 1837 and died 28th January 1887 at Allendale and buired at Creswick, Victoria.
His mother Jane died on August 10th 1886. She is buried at Smythesdale, Victoria. Not sure if there is a headstone on the grave as at 2007.

His sister Christiana married Agnon Charles Numa on 9th August 1856 in Ballarat.

Jane Tolliday nee Curtis from Cambridge

Jane Curtis was born in 1799. She was married to Nathaniel Tolliday.
and they had children Susan, John, Elizabeth, Christiana, William.

Nathaniel drowned in 1853 and Jane and her four children along with two spouses and three grand daughters migrated to Australia the following year.

John was married and he and his wife Sarah were accompanied by their two daughters. Whilst Elizabeth and her husband Charles had their infant daughter with them.

The ship British Empire left Southhampton on October 17th 1854 and arrived at Port Henry, Geelong, Victoria on January 15th 1855.

John and Susan were the same age according to a Census compiled so maybe they were twins. Or born very close together.

William married Priscilla Martha Barton 21st August 1862 in Ballarat.
They had ten children :- Nathaniel John born 1863, Christiana born 1865, William born 1867, Priscilla Martha born 1870, John born 1872, George William born 1874, Frederick Numa born 1876, Alfred Barton born 1879, Sarah Elizabeth born 1883, Alice born 1886.

William was born in 1837 in England and died 28th January 1887 at Allendale and buried at Creswick, Victoria.

John was married to Sarah Miles and had two daughters at the time of sailing, Fanny Sarah and Eva. They went on to have nine more children in Australia. Those children's names are:- John Robert, William Curtiss, Alfred John, Charles, Robert Porcher, Sarah Elizabeth, Ernest Montague, Jane Elizabeth and Albert. 7 sons and 4 daughters.

John Curtis Tolliday was born in 1827 in Cambridgeshire and died 14th August 1902 and is buried at the Ballarat New Cemetery.

Elizabeth was married to Charles Jonas Clark and they had a little girl named Jane on board when they travelled too. I am not sure how old she was, being called an infant, to me would mean she was born in the year they sailed namely 1854.

Christiana married Agnon Charles Numa on 9th August 1856 in Ballarat.

Jane died on August 10th 1886. She is buried at Smythesdale, Victoria. The family got together and a memorial plaque was placed at the gravesite.


I have written many journals on this Tolliday family and their descendants and they are listed and easy to find. I have also made a Tribal Page family tree. You are welcome to have a look at it if you wish.

Drop me a line and I will tell you how to gain access to the site.

Best of luck with your research.

Charles Clark immigrated to Australia with his wife Elizabeth nee Tolliday and infant daughter Jane. The ship British Empire left Southhampton on 17th October 1854 and arrived at Point Henry, Geelong, Victoria on 15th January 1855.

Other Tolliday family members travelled as well. Including his mother in law Jane, sister in law Christiana, brothers in law John and William, John's wife Sarah their two little girls Fanny and Eva.

Charles was listed as being 22 years of age at the time of the voyage and his occupation was AG Labourer. His wife Elizabeth was 21 and their daughter was listed as an infant. So less the 2 years old.

He is listed as being born on 20th September 1829 in Cambridge, Cambs., Eng. He married Elizabeth Tolliday on 12th January 1853. They had nine children. His death date listed as 24 September 1892 at Scarsdale. He was buried at the Smyhthesdale Cemetery on September 26th.

Benjamin Thomas Clark is his father and Ann Leaford Shuker is his mother. The dates fit with in 2 years of dates I have for the voyage of 1854 and the area listed as St Giles, Cambridgeshire is also where the Tollidays lived.
