Don't know when James and spouse Eleanor arrived but it was probably 1853 or early 1854.

I have no arrival for Anne so she may have even died in England or on the vessel. I can't prove this is the right death.

Thanks gibbo.

That's one notice I didn't have.

Curious thing is that we have no arrival for parents or daughter Marcella or some other children but we do have arrival for the three eldest daughters.

Assisted immigrants arriving in Sydney & Newcastle, 1844-59
ANDERSON Mary Jane 21 and sister Carnatic 1853 2464
ANDERSON Lucy Eleanor 19 and sister Carnatic 1853 2464
ANDERSON Sarah Anne 17 Carnatic 1853 2464

1 Jan 1853 'Carnatic' Plymouth to Sydney via Melbourne
Mary Ann 21 Milliner Dublin CofE Both None Good None
Lucy Eleanor 19 Housemaid London CofE Both None Good None
Sarah Anne 17 Milliner London CofE Both None Good None

They were the first to arrive. 'None' = no relations in colony


Also can't find a death for James sometime after 1868.

Yes, those are the right marriages.

Marriage to Hugh Renwick
1859
Age: 21
Bathurst
Sarah Ann

Fathers occupation: A Clerk
Mothers forenames: Eleanor
Birth date: 16/09/1835

She would have been older than 21. Marriage 7 Nov 1859.


Apart from deaths for James and daughter Ann(e), I think we are right for other events in NSW for the family.

This might help narrow dates down for the death of James.
Death notice for Ella Elizabeth.


The Sydney Morning Herald (NSW : 1842 - 1954)
Friday 29 March 1878

DEATHS.
ANDERSON. -March 25, at Cook's River, Ella Elizabeth Anderson, aged 39 years, native of London, daughter of the late James Anderson, solicitor.

I cant find a death index for her :confused:

I agree gibbo, no reg.

Closest is this one:

Death 2898/1878 ANDERSON ELLEN AGE 33 YEARS DIED NEWTOWN NEWTOWN ** 26 March

Cook's River would probably be Petersham district.

Ruling out deaths where age is way out leaves:

2414/1868 ANDERSON JAMES ROBERT AGNES ST GEORGE * Age 3
3027/1872 ANDERSON JAMES ISAAC MARY BATHURST
3879/1872 ANDERSON JAMES WILLIAM MARIA DUBBO * Age 28
7111/1873 ANDERSON JAMES UNKNOWN UNKNOWN WAGGA WAGGA ** 10 Jan
2248/1874 ANDERSON JAMES JANET CONCORD ** 25 May &&
2879/1878 ANDERSON JAMES JAMES SPALDING NEWTOWN ** 6 March

Rule out 6 March - not old enough

ANDERSON James Death notice 06MAR1878 Death 48 late of Enmore, formerly of Kilcaddy, Ireland Sydney Morning Herald 09MAR1878


&& Ruled out by having sons James and Archibald.

That leaves Wagga and Bathurst. I would say Wagga is out.

Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter - Saturday 11 January 1873 p.2
ITEMS OF NEWS.
Death in the Hospital. - Mr. James
Anderson who is well-known as a buyer
of stock on commission, died in the
Wagga Hospital on Thursday night, ...

So that one ruled out.

I can find nothing in TROVE for the Bathurst one.
