    The William Nicol set sail from Ornsay. It is well documented as it was all organised by Rev John Dunmore Lang with the help of many others to try and encourage more protestants into Australia. I have been able to get several old newspaper articles about the William Nicol. An episode WDYTYA...

    Thanks Dave... We have all hit the same brick wall. :( Most of the passengers on the William Nicol were from Isle of Skye, Invernesshire or Ross & Cromarty. I have been told that the Catholic church records around that time aren't the best and this maybe why I can't find anything. I was hoping...

    Thomas Lulham

    Hi Geoff, I just checked my tree and I do have Blyth, Northumberland as his birthplace....are you looking at the LULHAMS of Surrey Family Tree? The 1861 census is all I have to go on at the moment, hence my need for 1851 to see what it says.....otherwise, no other information about his place or...

    Hi Geoff, They seemed to have been missed from 1851 census somehow. I did, a few years back, write and ask Ancestry if they were aware of any missing census records and did look on the National Archives site and apparently, no known missing records. I have looked at every 1851 KUT census...

    The best we are offered over here in Oz is a 14 day Free Trial....How do you guys get 3 months???? I am jealous.

    Decipher a Coroners' Inquest

    Hey Dave, Someone has suggested 'sweeps' (the long oars) for where he was sitting on the boat. Getting there, but would not have got this far without you.:D

    Food not for thought

    Hi Gibbo, I don't eat gravy or make it, find it revolting, but my mum used to make gravy from the pan juices and I think that she would have added extra salt & pepper for flavour.
