Was a yoeman farmer at Stoke-sub-Hamden, Married Sarah Hill, had 11 children, one died as teen, emigrated 1848/9 to Australia. He had leases on many blocks of land therefore would have had bank records. Trying to find out which ship and to whom he paid for voyage by bank records??? No success through Nat Library, Aust., State Library, SAust,Somerset Heritage Centre, Passenger Lists etc. His brother-in-law took over the farm in 1847.
Does anyone have suggestions?
Hannah CARY had a female child on 5 January 1784, the father being John CAVE,1750-1817.
She brought a Bastardy Order against him for support of the child.
He had married Sarah HILL on 22/10/1783.
Sarah married John CAVE, 22/10 1783, Pitney by Langport, Somerset, England and after his death married George HORWOOD, Sep 1827, Somerset, England.
Cannot find death
My biggest brick wall is that there are no records available through National Library of Australia , the State Library of South Australia or passenger lists, however the State Library seems to think that the family came out on a privately on a chartered/shared vessel as Charles Cave was a yoeman farmer and was Charles Cave Esq.
He sailed here with 9 of his children, the 10th arriving later, just prior to his sister's wedding. It seems a puzzle to me that this entire family have disappeared??
Anyone have any hints for me please?
Capt. Thomas Grierson 1814?-1883 prominent captain at Port Adelaide, would like birth date and origin.
