On the passenger list of the barque "OLYMPUS" arriving Wellington 20-4-1841 from London, the entry under the MABEY family says that "Sophia 10 years left behind W.A."
PASSENGER LIST for OLYMPUS
Does anyone know what that means ?
I cannot find the OLYMPUS arriving in W.A.
(what I ASSUME to be West Australia) in 1841 to drop her off.
*UPDATE* - Apparently Sophie died during the voyage and was buried at sea 'off the coast of West Africa'

There is a Mr. Chris Teo Chong Lian apparently known as "Peter" in the Taita cemetery NZ.
As this cemetery is mostly of the early settlers of the Hutt Valley I would like to know something about him.
Do you know of him, can you tell me anything of his life in NZ

Jackson - maiden. . . Lynds - 1st husband. . . Stent - 2 husband
I have the names of 14 of Emma's children
- if you go to my page here Emma Jackson-Lynds you will see what I have.
Thanks to Malcolm and all his help, the above children of Emma have been amended (from what I had 3 years ago)
John was the first husband of Emma Stent - they married in New Zealnad and had 4 children. He was born 1-10-1844 and he died somewhere in Australia in 1896. Do you know of him, or heard of him, I would like to know when he arrived in Australia - it would have been after 1874, when his 4th child was born - and where abouts he stayed. His wife Emma went on to marry Charles Stent and have another 16 children.!!
Emma Stent married my great grandmother's brother and I have just been doing a research on all the women of that family.
I came across this very interesting write up about her father CAPTAIN JAMES HAYTER JACKSON who was one of the first 50 people to emigrate to New Zealand and he set up a whaling station in Marlborough. When he first arrived he spent the early years living with the famous maori chief Te Rauparaha.
BUT, for me, even more interesting is that Emma, his daughter, the woman I was researching, married twice - first marriage (to John Lynds who died in Australia somewhere) she had 4 children to.
The second marriage to Charles Stent she had another 16 CHILDREN TO !!! - (actually 10, see link below)
3 years on and the above info has now been amended after much research and HEAPS of help from Malcolm - read here: Emma JACKSON-LYNDS
